ben & j.lo moving fast

Barely a month has gone by since Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck found their way back to each other, 17 years after they broke off their engagement. They’re not letting love get away from them this time around either! According to insiders, the reunited couple are going full speed ahead after reconnecting in the wake of Lopez’s split with Alex Rodriguez in mid-April. “As soon as Ben and Jen started talking, it became obvious their connection was as strong as ever,” a source told Us Weekly. “When they eventually met up, all bets were off.” Having already enjoyed a romantic vacation in Montana in early May and a mini-break together in South Florida two weeks later – where they were spotted kissing during a gym date – Affleck, 48, and Lopez, 51,…

jen’s set to wed!

Although Jennifer Garner only recently reunited with businessman beau John Miller, insiders say the pair are considering a trip down the aisle! “Jen was not into the idea of getting married again,” a source told OK! magazine. “But this past year has been rough on everybody and it’s taught Jen, for one, not to take anything for granted.” The pair’s relationship initially ended because Miller, 43, wanted to take things to the next level, while the actress, 49, wasn’t ready. But Garner is said to have recently had a change of heart. “Deep down, Jen always knew John was husband material,” the source added. “Her time apart from John has made her re-evaluate things. She thinks she’s finally ready to make this huge step.”…

friends forever! ‘ we’ll be family for life ’

“It was a dream come true for all of us. We all realised it early on”—SCHWIMMER David Schwimmer slowly enters Stage 24 on the Warner Bros lot in Burbank, California, and laughs to himself. More than 17 years has passed since he last set foot in Joey and Chandler’s bachelor pad. Or walked across the hall into Monica’s spacious rent-controlled apartment. Or plopped down on the thrift-store-find orange couch that was always reserved for a close-knit group of friends at Central Perk coffee shop. The actor, 54, is taken aback by the sight of the meticulously re-created sets in front of him. “Wow. This is beautiful,” he says softly. One by one his five former co-stars arrive at the sound stage and join Schwimmer, overcome by their emotions. Lisa Kudrow, 57, makes a…

setting it up again

Original Friends production designer John Shaffner’s marching orders for the HBO Max reunion show were clear: re-create the set exactly the way it had been during the last season of the series. Fortunately mostly everything had been archived or used in the studio tour at Warner Bros.“I would say we got about 75 per cent of the furnishings from the boys’and the girls’apartment. And almost everything from the coffeehouse because it was in the museum,”he says. Past photos, shopping and a little creativity filled in the rest.“As much trouble as it was to accomplish, I think it was brilliant.”…
