“To experience Jennifer Lopez’s life now and see how massive a presence on social media – how that’s valued, how that’s perceived by people who are willing to put a lot of money into what you do – is really striking,” Affleck, who shares children Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 9, with his ex-wife Jennifer Garnierpreviously sprung during a month of january Los Angeles Times interview. “I’m not sure the option of having 300 million subscribers was ever available to me, but that ship has probably sailed by now.”
