Superstars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's on-off marriage plans drew attention once again when they were spotted visiting a Las Vegas wedding chapel on New Year's Eve (31DEC03).

The Gigli co-stars were originally set to wed in Santa Barbara, California, in September (03), but called off their planned nuptials, blaming the high level of media attention. They have since kept the world guessing about when and where they will become man and wife.

And speculation was raised again when they were seen at the WEDDING BELLS CHAPEL - but they didn't get married.

A source explains, "They checked it out. But they were just kind of joking around. They're jokesters, you know?"

The pair rang in the New Year in their own suite at the gambling city's HARD ROCK HOTEL + CASINO with J.LO's mother GUADALUPE, sister Lynda Lopez and her TV reporter boyfriend CHRIS BOOKER, among other friends.

The following night, Lopez, 33, and 31-year-old Affleck joined Matt Damon and his new girlfriend, Stuck On You co-star Eva Mendes, at Las Vegas hot-spot LIGHT.
