Jennifer Lopez celebrates success of new film Atlas by snapping selfies in front of own billboard, despite marital troubles

Jennifer Lopez was seen snapping selfies in front of a billboard for her new movie Atlas on Friday.

While driving down Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, the 54-year-old singer stopped her car to get out and take photos of her face plastered across the massive billboard with a strong message.

On the same day, she made an Instagram post and shared her selfies with the ‘Don’t F with JLo’ ad, which Netflix put up ahead of the movie’s release and amid reports of turmoil in her marriage with Ben Affleck, 51.

The actress was seen dressed in an oversize, long-sleeved crop top teamed with a matching pair of white sweatpants and sneakers. 

She took down her light brunette hair with blonde highlights down in soft waves as she snapped photos in the middle of the street.

Even though the movie was panned by critics and received a disappointing negative score on Rotten Tomatoes due to its ‘formulaic’ script, she appeared to be in a cheery mood and flashed a bright smile.

In an Instagram Story clip she posted, the Let’s Get Loud hitmaker was seen in her car, heading to check out her billboard. 

‘So a bunch of people were messaging me yesterday telling me about this billboard that Netflix put up for Atlas, so I want to go see it for myself,’ she said.

‘Oh, there it is!’ she exclaimed excitedly as her car pulled up to the spot on Sunset Strip and she hopped out to take photos.

She also made her way to another Atlas ad — a facsimile of an aircraft that has crashed into a poster for the film. 

Her latest outing comes as her Atlas co-star Sterling K. Brown insisted that she and Affleck were ‘very much in love’ while she prepared for the movie.  

Amid the incessant rumors surrounding Lopez’s marriage, the Black Panther star said Affleck would help her practice her dialogue.

‘Every once in a while, Ben would read the lines for Smith,’ the Oscar nominee recalled. ‘I think the newlyweds — still very much in love — I think she just wanted to hear his voice.

‘And so sometimes, the reactions that you got from her were because she was listening to her husband’s voice,’ he told Entertainment Weekly in an interview published on Friday, the same day their sci-fi action movie was released.

As she snapped photos in front of the billboard, she tried to cover her left hand with her sleeve but a shimmering wedding band was still visible on her ring finger.

The week before, it was reported that the power couple had been living separately with Affleck staying at a $100,000-a-month rental property in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. 

He was repeatedly spotted without his wedding band at various points this month, but his ring has, since, reappeared on his left hand as of this Friday. 

Her newest flick Atlas was released on the same day and stars Lopez as a brilliant analyst named Atlas Shepherd, who hunts down a robot with a mysterious past on a faraway planet.

In the movie, she stars as a counterterrorism analyst with a deep distrust of artificial intelligence (AI) but finds it to be her only hope when a mission to capture a renegade robot goes awry. 

She stars in the Netflix movie alongside Brown as well as Simu Liu and Mark Strong. 

Earlier this week while promoting the movie, Lopez was asked about her marriage during a press conference and Liu came to her defense.

In Mexico City on Wednesday, a now-viral video showed a reporter asking Lopez to confirm of the ‘Ben Affleck rumors’ were ‘real.’

The Marry Me actress — who was still wearing her wedding ring — looked tense as she tried to laugh the question off before playfully scolding the reporter: ‘You know better than that.’

She did not attempt to deny rumors that her fourth marriage is on the rocks but fans applauded her for how she handled the situation.

Her co-star, who was also sitting on the panel at the junket, then warned other reporters to steer clear of that line of questioning. 

Liu chimed in at another point during the presentation and praised Lopez: ‘If I could just end on one thing. Jen is a producer on this movie and the reason why I’m here. 

‘And the reason why Sterling was in this beautiful movie was because Jen cares. Jen cares about things like representation and diversity — and she’s a boss!’
