Ben Affleck is making sure Jennifer Lopez knows that everything is "gonna be alright."

In the multi-hyphenate superstar's documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told, which debuted Tuesday on Prime Video, Affleck, 51, comforts his wife, 54, amid the making of her conceptual musical This Is Me . . . Now: A Love Story.

"I had good intentions with this, I just don't want to suck," Lopez tells Affleck in the clip, referring to her musical movie, to which he replies: "You know you're scared."

The "Waiting for Tonight" performer then says she's scared "it's gonna f---ing suck a f---ing dick."

"You'll be scared it'll suck until it doesn't," the Gone Girl star reassures his wife, while making her laugh with a surprised face. "You've gotta discern between things that suck DNA-wise, and things that just don't work right."

Lopez interjects that she doesn't think the "DNA" itself "sucks," to which the two-time Academy Award winner comforts her by saying, "Well, that's all you need."

"Right now it just sucks," she declares.

Affleck once again tells her it doesn't "suck."

"That's wrong. That's just inexperience, that you haven't done this process before," he tells the two-time Grammy-nominated musician.

Lopez then teases Affleck while throwing her arms around his neck.

"I'm sorry that I'm not an award-winning director. I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I wasn't doing all the things at 21 years old," she says, while her husband cuts in: "Well, if I was doing a musical concert, if I was doing a rock show, I would say to you, 'Tell me how this goes. Are you usually afraid before you perform?'"
