Affleck has often been pictured smoking cigarettes and vapes over the years.

In April 2020, the Armageddon star was photographed taking off his Covid-19 mask to puff on a cigarette while strolling through Los Angeles.

In contrast, Lopez is known for her dedication to a healthy, smoke-free lifestyle.

The singer’s ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez spoke of her ‘clean’ in a 2018 interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, saying ‘she really leans into the big fundamentals, like getting her rest, eight to 10 hours.’

‘She doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke. She lives a very clean life,’ he added.
