For the past few weeks, we’ve seen more than one of Jennifer Lopez’s exes respond to her surprise reunion with Ben Affleck and the beginning of Bennifer 2.0

First, there was the obvious confused and upset sources coming from Alex Rodriguez’s camp, then there was the unlikely dial-in by Diddy, who posted a throwback photo of himself with J.Lo from the year before she initially started dating Affleck. 

Now, we’ve had one of Affleck’s famous exes join the discourse. None other than Gwyneth Paltrow. 

The reunion of Lopez and Affleck – who dated and were engaged between 2002 and 2004 – has naturally made people fondly look back at the Noughties, even more so than they were already thanks to Tik Tok teens recently discovering the decade in all its glory. The result is plenty of memes on Instagram, including by Paltrow’s wellness brand, Goop, who loves to troll its ultra famous owner. 

On Wednesday, Goop shared a meme featuring its founder with her ex-boyfriend Affleck. In the image, Paltrow is seen rolling her eyes while Affleck whispers something in her ear. Paltrow is dubbed ‘Gemini szn’, while Affleck is captioned as ‘Mercury in retrograde’.


Paltrow laughed off the reference to her old relationship with Affleck, commenting under the picture: ‘Oh my god you guys.’

Paltrow and Affleck dated from 1997 until 2000. Over the years, Paltrow has discussed her famous ex, telling radio host Howard Stern in 2015 that the pair remain friendly. 

Paltrow is now, of course, happily married to producer Brad Falchuk, but since we’re stuck in a ‘90s time loop, is anyone else on board to see her and Brad Pitt rekindle their romance? I mean:
