Pop culture writer Whitney Matheson of USA Today chatted with readers on Wednesday and weighed in on the overload of stories about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. “I’d love to stuff those two into a rocket ship and send them to Mars.

They’re 1,000 times more interesting and attractive than Bennifer, if you ask me.”
Later, asked if she thought they’d walk the aisle, Matheson said, “I don’t think it will play out with a wedding, but who knows. Stranger things have happened.”
