Jennifer Lopez’s husband Ben Affleck has revealed why he looked miserable during the 2023 Grammy Awards. It was a night of excitement but from photos and video captured, Ben wasn’t happy being there and he’s got an explanation for looking miserable on the night via Page Six;
Ben Affleck denies having a bad time at the 2023 Grammy Awards and claims his viral unenthused face was due to host Trevor Noah catching him off guard for a skit.
“I saw [Noah approach] and I was like, ‘Oh, God,’” the “Argo” director told the Hollywood Reporter in a new feature published Thursday.
“They were framing us in this shot, but I didn’t know they were rolling.”
Just before the skit began, cameras captured Affleck having a conversation with his wife, Jennifer Lopez.
The “Gone Girl” star, 50, said he had been joking with the “Jenny From the Block” singer, 53, telling her, “As soon they start rolling, I’m going to slide away from you and leave you sitting next to Trevor.”
“She goes, ‘You better f–king not leave,’” Affleck added. “That’s a husband-and-wife thing. I mean, some of it is, I’m like, ‘All right, who is this act?’”
In the skit, Noah, 39, pretended to be on the phone with his mom after Sam Smith’s controversial performance of “Unholy,” and quipped, “Mom, it wasn’t the actual devil. No, they were just dressed as the devil, Mom.”
At the time, the host was seated next to Lopez, who could be seen sternly patting her husband on the chest amid a brief chat.
After the moment went viral, everyone from fans to experts weighed in on the exchange.
A lip reader thought Lopez told her husband, “Look more friendly. Look motivated.”
A body language expert claimed the “Shotgun Wedding” star’s gesture was “reproachful” and was an attempt to show “control.”
However, Lopez tried to quiet the noise by taking to social media soon after the Grammys and sharing that she had the “best time” with her “love” at the awards show.
Multiple sources previously told Page Six that Affleck was seen in a great mood backstage, and one insider shared with us an exclusive video of the “Armageddon” actor laughing with Queen Latifah.
