Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck appear to be feeling nostalgic during their romantic getaway to Saint Tropez for her 52nd birthday.
The on-again couple – who have been cozying up on their $130M dollar mega yacht anchored near the French village – gave fans a blast from the past as inadvertently recreated that famous scene from her 2002 music video Jenny From the Block.
Affleck, 48, was pictured applying sun cream to his girlfriend’s famous posterior, striking a very similar scene to the one included in JLo’s video for the song, which played on their power couple status at the time.

The sighting comes after eagle-eyed fans also saw a framed picture of the pair – taken by legendary photographer Herb Ritts in 2002 – that was seen in the background on their yacht.
Meanwhile, reports have suggested they continued the birthday festivities into the early hours of the morning, which comes after recently went Instagram official with their rekindled romance.
Affleck appears to have splurged mightily on the birthday getaway for JLo, sparing no expense as the couple openly displayed their affection.

After flying in to the French Riviera on a luxury private jet, likely a Bombardier Global 7500, at an estimated cost of around $200,000, the couple were quickly whisked away to a luxury $130M mega-yacht, named Valerie, in the Mediterranean, where they were spotted exchanging kisses and tender embraces on the sun deck.
‘Fifty two!’ declared Lopez in an Instagram video, proudly flaunting her figure in a bikini and elegant flowing beach wrap as she strutted on the deck of the yacht.
It is not known who is paying for the trip, but Affleck is said to be worth $150m while JLo is around three times that at $400million.
Now making no secret of her rekindled romance with Affleck, the triple-threat entertainer also posted an Instagram photo showing her exchanging a passionate smooch with the two-time Oscar winner.
The incredible yacht the loved-up couple will be staying on is the Valerie, currently on the market for $130M and being sold by Dynamiq Brokerage.
The couple will be able to spend time together with seven bedrooms across six decks on which to enjoy the voyage.
The theme of wellness runs throughout with a steam room and even a Hamman, said to be decorated with mosaics according to Boat International. There are also massage rooms and spaces for beauty treatments.
A gym with a panoramic view of the ocean opens out onto an outdoor space with room for dining and a fountain that lights up at night.
The huge ship can accommodate 14 guests across seven cabins, served by a crew of up 27.
Launched in 2011, the vessel has six decks all served by an elevator and has an onboard 20 foot-long pool and a Jacuzzi which is one of five outdoor spaces.
Boasting an onboard gym and spectacular outdoor dining area the boat was designed with London’s iconic hotel Claridge’s in mind.
The main deck and lounge are designed for hosting and centered around a uniquely designed self-playing piano. The foredeck has enough room for a helicopter to land.
The upper decks contain a lounge, cinema together with several cabins.
One bedroom enjoys a panoramic view together with a private deck and Jacuzzi. Other cabins are suitable for guests including children while the owner’s apartment is connected through a private staircase.
The yacht has spent most of its time traveling around the Mediterranean privately although the vessel spent a season in the Caribbean in 2012.
Prices in order to charter the yacht to charter are unavailable to the general public and information is only revealed through discreet inquiries.
It is currently owned by Ukrainian billionaire and financial services guru RInat Akhmetov – who is the 327nd richest man in the world with a net worth of $7.5B.
The boat underwent a top-to-bottom refit in 2019 and is now on the market for sale and charters by Dynamiq Brokerage.
The owners of the boat describe the vessel to have ‘discretion and privacy at the very heart of the design’.
The construction is such that it manages to conceal the vast amount of space inside. Guests are easily able to be shielded from prying eyes, should they so desire.
The couple flew in on the equivalent in aviation luxury as they took an 11 hour flight from from LAX in Los Angeles direct to Nice on board Bombardier’s $72million Global 7500 aircraft, arriving around lunchtime on Friday in the South of France.
No private jet can match the Global 7500 for range – it can cover 8,860 miles without refueling.
The plane is not just big on fuel capacity, it’s big on luxury too and can be customized to include a plush double bed and a stand-up shower – along with seats that Bombardier claims are revolutionary as standard.
Bombardier’s designers were able to produce a layout that’s an industry first – a cabin with four separate living spaces (a club suite, conference suite with a table for six, an entertainment suite and a lounge suite) and a dedicated crew suite and kitchen.
In total, it can accommodate 19 passengers.
When the couple arrived by private jet in the Riviera on Saturday, an executive shuttle service whisked them to the waiting yacht.
The couple flew in from Los Angeles, where Lopez was spotted sporting a beaming smile outside her offices in West Hollywood earlier this week.
Meanwhile, the potential for an awkward encounter hung in the air, after JLo’s ex Alex Rodriguez was spotted in the exact same area on Friday, cavorting with a bevy of bikini-clad women on a different yacht.
Rodriguez and Lopez officially ended their four-year relationship in March, before she rekindled her romance with Affleck – whom she previously dated back in the early 2000s.
Affleck and Lopez now appear to have fully rekindled their romance, after going ‘official’ in a photo from actress Leah Remini’s Instagram that showed them sweetly cuddling on July 15.
Earlier this week it was claimed by People that she is ‘madly in love’ with on-again beau Affleck and feels they will be together from now on.
The couple have quickly fallen back in love after reuniting just months ago, with a source telling E! News that the celebrity couple is ‘fully committed to each other,’ although they’ve both agreed they aren’t in a rush to get married again.
‘They have been meshing their lives and families and don’t feel the need to get engaged yet or even tie the knot. They have both been there and don’t feel it’s necessary,’ a second insider explained to the outlet.
‘They want to do everything they can to make this work,’ added the source. ‘They are madly in love.’
And it was stressed that Affleck, who has been through rehab, thinks Lopez – who does not drink alcohol, works out regularly and eats healthy – is a good influence on him.
‘She’s wonderful for him,’ said the source.
Lopez’s twins Max and Emme, 13 – whose dad is Latin crooner Marc Anthony – are believed to still be getting to know the former Batman star as he woos their mom.
Meanwhile, ‘Bennifer’ appeared far from ARod’s mind as he soaked up the sun with a bevy of bikini-clad beauties in St. Tropez on Friday — perhaps unaware that the new couple would soon be descending on the area.
The MLB legend, who is set to celebrate his 46th birthday next week, frolicked with the stunning women as they sailed aboard a lavish yacht.
At one point, the ex-Yankees star was rinsing off beneath an outdoor shower with two of the glamorous ladies after using an inflatable slide set up on the side of the vessel.
If Rodriguez is still heartbroken by the split with Lopez, he has come up with the perfect plans to distract himself.
According to Page Six, Rodriguez and his entourage will be spending several more weeks in Europe.
The group will be travelling to Monte Carlo and Ibiza, and there will no doubt be a number of attractive women vying for Rodriguez’s affection, given that he is now an eligible bachelor.
ARod’s yacht outing comes just days after Lopez’s friend Leah Remini posted photos to social media from her 51st birthday party in which the singer and Affleck were seen snuggled up together in a photobooth.
In the black and white photo, Lopez is seen pressing her body against Affleck’s with one hand on the actor and director’s chest.
She stared at the camera with a fierce glare as if to say ‘hands off, he’s mine’.
Affleck posed with one arm wrapped around his girlfriend, pulling her close.
