But just as Applegate was giving Ben a taste of her sexy dance act, Lopez walked in on the couple, and promptly marched off. Set sources claim Affleck ran after his wife-to-be and managed to calm her down before the couple disappeared to spend some quality time together in the actor's trailer. »

J.Lo Improves on Her Tips

3 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Lopez's engagement to Ben Affleck appears to have affected her in a big way - she's now picked up her fiance's penchant for leaving oversized tips at restaurants. On January 20, while in Chicago visiting Affleck, who's currently filming Surviving Christmas with James Gandolfini and Christina Applegate, J.Lo feasted with friends on sesame chicken and ginger ale at the Windy City's Ben Pao restaurant. According to a source, the 32-year-old New York native slept restlessly later that night "knowing that her party had only tipped 20 percent." The next day, the source tells American magazine Us Weekly, one of her dinner companions made their way back to the restaurant and left her server an extra $100 and said, "Jennifer was talking about it all night. She felt terrible because she felt she had made a mistake." A restaurant representative says, "We were excited to have her with us and impressed with her generosity." »
