Kevin Smith, who reconciled with Ben Affleck in 2018, talked about the actor’s marriage in Georgia.

Kevin Smith talked about Ben Affleck’s speech
“He’s one of my favorite writers on the planet. He wrote his vows — they [both] wrote their vows, but he wrote a big speech that he read to her at the wedding, which was breathtaking.”
The Clerks producer noted that one of his favorite things about the actor is that “he’s his own biggest fan, so he wrote like a 12-page speech.”
Kevin Smith also praised Jennifer Lopez’s impeccable taste
The filmmaker said that he was very happy for the couple and also appreciated all the decorations,
“I was happy for them. They deserve it. Even a cold-hearted robot would walk away from that ceremony like, ‘Oh my god, true love can happen!’ It was a real fairy-tale ending and [Jennifer Lopez] has impeccable taste, the whole place looked amazing. [Lopez] looked fantastic. They all looked fantastic.”
Jennifer Lopez previously revealed that they faced a lot of problems right before the wedding but thankfully it was all sorted out. She said they walked down the aisle to Marc Cohn’s song, True Companion. They originally picked it out as “the perfect wedding song” when they were first engaged more than 20 years ago.
