Lopez’s costar, Sterling K. Brown, talked about the interactions between Affleck and Lopez on set in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“Every once in a while, Ben would read the lines for Smith,” Brown said. “And I think the newlyweds, still very much in love, I think she just wanted to hear his voice. And so sometimes, the reactions that you got from her were because she was listening to her husband’s voice.”

It was not the first time the two have worked together, with the films Gigli, Air, and, of course, This Is Me…Now: A Love Story on the joint resume.

Atlas debuts on Netflix today.
