During the recent Grammy Awards ceremony, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were caught on camera in what appeared to be a tense moment.
The cameras were focused on the couple as host Trevor Noah was pretending to be on the phone with his mother discussing the awards show. As Affleck whispered something into Lopez’s ear, she jerked backwards and said something stern.
To end the speculation of what was said, a lip reader was commissioned by the Daily Mail to decode the conversation. The lip reader claimed that Lopez said, “Stop. Look more friendly. Look motivated.” Affleck allegedly replied with, “I might.”
However, the internet was not impressed with Affleck’s demeanor during the awards show. Every time the camera panned to the married couple, Affleck appeared uninterested and unenthusiastic, regardless of who was on stage.
He was caught standing still during Stevie Wonder’s performance, while Lopez was moving around energetically in time to the music. This led to Affleck becoming a meme on the internet with people commenting on his lack of excitement.

Others added to the joke, saying ‘Ben Affleck at the Grammys is me any time I have to be on a zoom call’. Another said ‘Ben Affleck is me as a kid being dragged somewhere I didn’t want to go.’ While a third said ‘Just remember, nothing is a bad as it looks like Ben Affleck feels at the Grammys.’
