Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez ended their infamous "Bennifer" relationship nearly 10 years ago, but the actor and filmmaker told The Hollywood Reporter he still keeps in touch with his ex.

"We don't have the kind of relationship where she relies on me for advice, but we do have the kind of relationship where there will be an email saying, 'Oh, your movie looks great,'" Affleck said.

"I remember when she got 'American Idol,'" he added. "I said, 'This was really smart. Good luck.' I touch base. I respect her. I like her. She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful."

Their relationship ended in 2004, a year after their box office bomb "Gigli" was released.
