It’s not just Twitter and Nostalgia Internet getting wrapped up in Bennifer 2021. And, by the way, as I just wrote in the previous post, it doesn’t seem like Jennifer Lopez is particularly bothered by it either. We are all riding this high ride now, and hopefully it’ll stay this high. That high ended back in the day, obviously, but maybe the times are better suited to Bennifer’s love right now. JLo seems to be handling it, as she always does, and even leaning into it. And hopefully the same is true of Ben.
Because to go back to the point of this post…everyone is talking about it, including people in Hollywood. Imagine the group chats right now?
On that note, Jennifer Lawrence was on The Bitch Bible podcast earlier this week with her friend Heather McMahan and…well… you know how you reacted when you heard about Bennifer 2021? Listen to JLaw:

Jennifer Lawrence was 12 or 13 or so during OG Bennifer times, but clearly not too young to appreciate the pop culture legend that was their relationship. And it’s not her first time telling on herself that she’s into celebrity gossip. She loves the Kardashians. She’s obsessed with Real Housewives. Per, E! she told The New York Times back in 2018 that:
"I'd like to know what's going on with Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift, that's the honest to God truth. Is nobody else curious? It's keeping me up at night. What happened?"
Same, JLaw, same. Although Taylor may have given us some indication last year and it had to do with Scooter Braun. The difference between us and Jennifer Lawrence though is that, well, she can just pick up her phone and text Taylor if she wanted to… although that would be kinda awkward. She probably picks up the phone and texts Adele instead, to speculate. Emma Stone too?
The point is, JLaw is right up into it, and she’s very much invested in Bennifer, just like us. Here she is walking around New York earlier this week. Thanks Mikey!
