Bennifer 2.0, plus more celebrities and pop culture events we're thankful for in 2021

Wonderwall Logo By Topher Gauk-Roger of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 23: In a year packed with difficult news, there were still numerous moments the entertainment industry supplied immeasurable joy. Whether it was red carpet returns, rekindled loves or Hollywood shakeups, there was plenty to celebrate.

At the start of the year, Ben Affleck was still dating actress Ana de Armas and Jennifer Lopez was planning a wedding with Alex Rodriguez. But Ben and Ana broke up a few months later, followed by J.Lo and A-Rod. Weeks after both stars officially became single, Bennifer was back on 17 years after they called it quits and ended an engagement. In late April, reports revealed Ben had been spending time at J.Lo's Los Angeles home, and photos of them in Miami and Montana confirmed that they were giving things another go.

The pair debuted their rekindled love on the red carpet at the Venice International Film Festival in September to support Ben's film "The Last Duel." It wasn't long before they also rocked the Met Gala and another premiere as a couple, refusing to keep anything about their love a secret.
