Affleck recently sat down for an interview with Adweek to open up about the 52-year-old actress’s recent title as Adweek's 2021 Brand Visionary. During the conversation, the Argo actor spoke candidly about Lopez’s influence and “effect on the world.”
“All I can tell you is that I have seen firsthand the difference representation makes because I have seen, over and over and over and over, women of color approach Jennifer and tell her what her example as a strong woman and a woman succeeding and demanding her fair share in the business world means to them," the 49-year-old told the outlet.
Affleck continued, “I am in awe of what Jennifer's effect on the world is. At most, as an artist, I can make movies that move people. Jennifer has inspired a massive group of people to feel they have a seat at the table in this country. That is an effect few people throughout history have had, one I will never know and one I can only stand by and admire with respect."
