One of the biggest celebrity weddings we witnessed in 2022 was undoubtedly between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Two decades after previously ending their first engagement, the former lovers made their way back to each other. They tied the knot in a stunning Georgia ceremony, and since then, have been enjoying life together as newlyweds.
While the Gone Girl star works primarily in the film industry, his multi-talented wife dabbles in both acting and music. Seeing as she’s had a generally successful career as a singer, Lopez was invited to attend Sunday’s (February 5) Grammy Awards as a presenter. Much to the audience’s avail, her husband chiefly tagged along as her date for the evening.
The newlyweds didn’t walk the star-studded red carpet, but the Hustlers starlet did make her debut on stage early on. She handed out the first trophy of the night, specifically for Best Pop Vocal Album to Harry Styles and his Harry’s House effort. Unfortunately for Affleck, his wife obviously wasn’t able to leave after carrying out her role.
Several times throughout the undeniably lengthy award ceremony, cameras panned to the 50-year-old looking increasingly bored. Whether watching Stevie Wonder perform “Higher Ground,” or simply soaking in the presence of other celebrities, the look on his face reads as though he’d rather be anywhere else than at the Grammys.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter users are explicitly having a field day making memes of Affleck’s expression. Some pointed out that it’s sad to see him looking so miserable in the presence of his dream girl – especially now that he’s finally married her. Others, however, find it comedic that the father of three is so often caught on camera looking miserable.
“Ben Affleck is every introvert everywhere. You can see his batteries draining in real-time. Man is already at 23%,” one user later joked. Another person wrote, “Ben Affleck is every husband dragged to a work thing by his wife.” Furthermore, people expressed gratitude for the cameraman who kept eyes on the Argo actor throughout the night.
