Ben Affleck is a happy family man, but he still keeps in a "touch base" kind of contact with his famous exes - including Jennifer Lopez.
"We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice," the actor told The Hollywood Reporter. "But we do have the kind of relationship where there'll be an e-mail saying, 'Oh, your movie looks great.'"
Affleck - who has three children with wife Jennifer Garner - said he got in touch with Lopez when she landed the "American Idol" judging gig (which she has now given up).
"I touch base. I respect her. I like her," he said.
As for his wife, the 40-year-old actor said she "truly is kind."
"She means no one any harm. She doesn't have ill will for any person," he said.
"It's one of those things where it becomes almost aggravating at times. Every time I go, 'F--- him!' I see in her face that she just thinks that's petty and small."
