“Yellowstone” certainly has a massive fan following and it includes the celebs. The star couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are among them.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez love the show
Appearing on “The Bill Simmons Podcast” on Wednesday with Matt Damon to promote their new film, “Air,” Affleck opened up about his and his wife’s television habits and said that she is a big fan of the series, and in particular, two of its characters.
“I’m kind of disturbed that my wife really likes ‘Yellowstone,'” Affleck joked.
The actor and director explained that Lopez — who he married in June 2022 after rekindling their romance almost two decades after they originally split — was “really drawn to the romance between Cole Hauser and the woman who plays his wife.”
On the show, Hauser plays the titular ranch’s foreman, Rip Wheeler, while Kelly Reilly portrays Beth Dutton, the only daughter of protagonist John Dutton (Kevin Costner). Across the drama’s five seasons, viewers have seen — with the help of flashbacks — the pair’s 20-year on-off relationship unfold, culminating in their impromptu wedding in the season four finale.
Affleck went on to say that Reilly was “excellent” in the role of Beth and had no idea the actor was British as she embodies the character so well.
“Jen showed me a clip of her off of Instagram, the monologue she has in the car about the ways to become rich,” Affleck said “And then she was like, ‘I love this story of these two.'”
“I was like, ‘Wait a minute? With Cole? With Hauser? What do you love about it?’” he said as Simmons and Damon laughed.
