Lopez Not Promoting Jersey Girl With Affleck

JENNIFER LOPEZ has been spared the ordeal of promoting her upcoming movie JERSEY GIRL alongside former fiance BEN AFFLECK, because she dies just 12 minutes into the movie.

Director and longtime Affleck pal KEVIN SMITH insists J.LO was never expected to promote the movie in the first place.

He explains, "There weren't plans beforehand for (Lopez) to be there at the 5 March press junket in New York, so the break-up doesn't affect that. But I expect Ben to get hammered with questions."

Film studio MIRAMAX, which will release the movie on 19 March (04), has been playing down her participation in the picture.

Lopez barely appears in the trailer, which makes it clear her character dies during the birth of their child early on, and that Affleck's character moves on to a relationship with more prominently featured LIV TYLER.

Lopez doesn't even appear on posters for the film. Instead it features Affleck with RAQUEL CASTRO, who plays their daughter.

Smith adds, "Now that the trailer's out, people are getting (the idea) that it's not a 'Bennifer' movie."

GIGLI co-stars Lopez and Affleck called an end to their much hyped romance last week (ends23JAN04).
