The pair can be seen kissing in new photos obtained by Page Six from their dinner at Nobu Malibu on Sunday, when they joined the 51-year-old superstar’s family — including her 13-year-old twins Max and Emme — to celebrate her sister Lynda’s 50th birthday. The paparazzi shot is reminding “Bennifer” stans of the ones from 2002, which were famously the subject of her “Jenny From the Block” music video in support of the No. 3 Billboard Hot 100 hit.
What fans aren’t wanting to revisit is Gigli, the poorly reviewed 2003 comedy film where the two first met. “Congrats to these two lovebirds for bringing back all the Bennifer feels but this better not lead to Gigli 2!” one Twitter user wrote.
People reports that the Oscar-winning actor was “very affectionate” with Lopez at the family dinner, where he got along great with her kids. “Ben and her kids seemed comfortable together,” the source said. “The kids kept chatting with Ben. Ben seemed great. He was smiling and laughing.”
A rep for Lopez had “no comment” about the photos when reached by Billboard, while a rep for Affleck hadn’t responded by press time.

bennifer is doing it right; the song of the summer should always be celebrities doing things at al fresco restaurants
