Hollywood heart-throb Ben Affleck has given ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez's marriage to Marc Anthony his blessing - saying he's "rooting for her".

The JERSEY GIRL star - whose wedding to the Maid In Manhattan beauty was called off at the last minute - was said to be deeply upset by the speed at which J.Lo moved on from their romance. The 34-year-old married Latin singer Anthony just four months after she split from Affleck.

But the actor - who is now happily dating TV executive ENZA SAMBATARO - phoned up an American radio station to deny there is any bad feeling between them.

Affleck said: "I'm very happy for Jen. I wish her all the best and I'm rooting for her."
