Jennifer Lopez has 'forgiven' Ben Affleck for the end of their past romance.

"I think I was angry at you for a long time," she told Affleck. "But that heartbreak set both of us on a course to figuring ourselves out to being better people. I think I’ve forgiven you all the way. I think I need to forgive myself [for] some things."

The Hollywood power couple initially got engaged in 2002 but ended up calling off their wedding in 2004. While apart for two decades, Lopez married Marc Anthony and welcomed 16-year-old twins Max and Emme. The Boston native went on to wed Jennifer Garner and shares children Violet, 18, and Seraphina, 15, and son Samuel, 12, with the actress.

Despite the "Get Right" singer being an open book when it comes to using her love life as inspiration, Affleck has been fearful over the amount of information Lopez has been sharing with the world after her recent album, movie and now documentary.

"Ben has gotten very good at biting his tongue, but it’s known that he’s not happy at all about J.Lo’s endless need for attention,” an insider claimed. "Ben loves J.Lo dearly, and he knew what he was getting into, to an extent."

“But his fear is that by putting so much of herself out there, J.Lo’s just opening them up to way too much public scrutiny, and that hasn’t helped their relationship historically — far from it,” the source added.

In a preview for the film, the Good Will Hunting actor explained, "Things that are private I always felt are sacred and special because, in part, they’re private. So this was something of an adjustment for me.”

In her most recent admission, Lopez revealed why she and Affleck ended things in the first place. "I knew in my heart that I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life, I knew that," she noted in a recent interview. "But it didn’t feel like we were going to make it. And so it scared me."

"Even though he was in his late 20s, I was in my early 30s, it still, it wasn’t… we weren’t ready to deal with, and look at each other and go, what we have is real, we need to buckle down, we need to do some work,” Lopez noted. "We just weren’t there yet."
