In the recent documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told, Affleck said that he and Lopez are “two people with different kinds of approaches trying to learn to compromise.”

A film industry source recently told PEOPLE that Affleck has never been totally comfortable showcasing his romance with Lopez to the world through her creative work. Still, he has never wanted to stand in the way of who she is as an artist.

“He’s always been impressed about how she works so hard and has achieved so much success,” says the film source. “But the openness and promotion is not his way.”
