Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck has given his blessing to ex-girlfriend GWYNETH PALTROW's marriage to Coldplay rocker CHRIS MARTIN - because they're "good people".

Whilst Affleck is still consternating over marrying superstar JENNIFER LOPEZ, after they called off the planned marriage in September (03) citing fears of media intrusion - he has respect for his former love's more understated marriage last month (DEC03), after she learnt she was expecting Martin's baby.

Charitable Affleck says, "It's nice to see good things happen to good people."
