The world has been obsessed with Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s reunion, with the pair recently making their red carpet debut – but a body language expert has said there’s more to the photos than meets the eye.

Jennifer and Ben – nicknamed Bennifer – got engaged in the early noughties before splitting in 2004. Earlier this year, following JLo’s split from Alex Rodriguez, they rekindled their romance.

Looking at various photos of the pair, including posed red carpet shots and candid paparazzi snaps, body expert Judi James told Metro.co.uk of the couple: ‘Their body language together is both intriguing and worrying, mainly because these recent poses seem to mimic the body language set pieces they were performing back in the day.

‘They are well-manicured poses, looking performed for the camera, and just like then we can seen a rather suave-looking Ben with an adoring-looking Jen throwing him gazes of pure love.

‘PDAs like their kisses look more like a PR message to let fans know they are back on track and it appears to be wind-the-clock-back time for the couple as they seem to be rekindling all those emotions that they shared once before.

‘These two were one of the first A-list celebrity power couples and their body language together suggests that is where they are pitching themselves again right now. It would be an act of great confidence to re-run this dynamic in what looks like exactly the same way, since it did go badly wrong at the time despite all their PDAs.’

However, it’s not all bad news, as she continued: ‘There is one big difference in their body language now, but only time will tell if it is a sign of more profound change or not.

‘Back then, when Ben was kissing Jen for the cameras, he was performing (or even inventing as it was the first example I had spotted) the Distracted Kiss. This was a way of kissing that looked both arrogant and rather disconnected.

‘Jen would stretch her neck up for the kiss and he would bend, but as he was kissing one of the world’s more desirable and successful women he had a habit of keeping his eyes open and looking away and above her head when he probably should have been lost in both the moment and her beauty. It made it look as though she was fully into the relationship but as though he was still looking around or distracted.

‘Their kisses now do appear to suggest some change in Ben, as he has his eyes closed or he is looking at and focusing on her rather than appearing distracted. Hopefully this means the affection and commitment is more evenly-shared this time around.’

We can only hope!

Since their reunion, Jennifer and Ben have seemed inseparable, enjoying gorgeous getaways together.

Most recently, the pair have been soaking up the atmosphere at Venice Film Festival as they took to the red carpet to promote Ben’s new film The Last Duel.

The couple have been seen catching water taxis and going for a wander, while Jen also stunned in a gorgeous ball gown.
