Your name is your brand in show business. Entertainers change their names all the time in an attempt to become A-listers, but sometimes they also drop their famous last names.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck gave the world the good news it needed by announcing their marriage on Sunday, July 17. The couple finally tied the knot in Las Vegas almost 20 years after they first started dating. After nearly two decades apart, their 2021 reunion seemed like fate. As Lopez wrote in her newsletter hours after the wedding, “Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient." However, the marriage wasn't the only surprise! Lopez signed the letter with her new legal name: Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.
Lopez, or should we say Affleck, revealed as far back as 2003 that she would take Ben Affleck's last name when they got married. Sadly, their original engagement was broken off in 2004, but finally, Mrs. Affleck can change her letterhead.
Here's a list of other celebs who dropped their famous last names, swapping them for their significant others' surnames.
