When it comes to casting for music videos, the role often requires getting up close and personal with the artist, so sometimes some singers skip the awkwardness of getting passionate with a stranger and just enlist their spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend instead. Some of these pairs are still deeply in love while others will forever have their career tied to their ex for one music video at least.

15. Ben Affleck in Jennifer Lopez’s “Jenny From the Block”
Back in the early 2000s Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were one of Hollywood’s top power couples, so it isn’t surprising she used the opportunity to have Ben star as himself in her music video for “Jenny From the Block.” The video chronicled the scrutiny the pair were under from the media at the time and included some very intimate moments including an iconic boat scene. While the song and video was a hit, the pair ended up breaking up shortly after, but we will always have the video to remember their reign in Hollywood.
