The 'Gone Girl' actor has reportedly 'come to his senses' about his failing marriage to Lopez as they always 'have very different approaches when it comes to media attention.'

AceShowbiz - Ben Affleck may be ready to accept that his romance with Jennifer Lopez has run its course. The actor/director has reportedly "come to his senses" about his failing marriage to the singer/actress less than two years after they tied the knot.

Describing the pair's alleged short-lived marriage as "a fever dream," a so-called insider tells Page Six, "If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would." The informant shares, "He feels like the last two years was just a fever dream, and he's come to his senses now and understands there is just no way this is going to work."

Other sources dish on the root of Affleck and Lopez's alleged marriage issues. "They just have very different approaches when it comes to media attention. Ben hates all attention and it makes him very uncomfortable. Jennifer has always had a different approach," one insider tells PEOPLE.

A source in the film industry says the 51-year-old filmmaker has "always been impressed" by his wife's work ethic and success in the industry, but "always sharing her life is not his way." The source explains, "Even though he admires that about her, it doesn’t make him happy and causes stress in his life and then in hers. There is no question their different styles clash."

A third source from the music world adds that Lopez "needs that expression but Affleck simply is not comfortable with it." The source claims, "After a while it causes tension in the relationship. He is more introspective and private. She likes to open her heart to her fans and to the world. This makes them considerably different, and it has been difficult in the day-to-day relationship."

The source goes on noting, "There have always been clashes in their styles, how they handle issues, and their actions, but nothing has stopped their love over the years," before declaring, "This is a great love story."

Affleck and Lopez sparked split rumors as they were not seen together for seven weeks prior to their reunion on Thursday, May 16 to attend a school production for his child Fin. Adding fuel to the split rumors, the pair have reportedly been living separately with Affleck moving out of their $60 million home several weeks ago. The actor has allegedly been staying in a Brentwood home without his wife "over the past week or so" while filming his latest film "The Accountant 2".

The two, however, put on a united front during a recent outing on Sunday, May 19. After attending a school event in Santa Monica separately, the pair left together in a car. They appeared to be in good spirits, flashing a smile to the camera when they noticed a paparazzo who took their pictures. The duo headed out to grab dinner at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood and were later pictured leaving the restaurant together.
