Did anyone check out the “miserable” Ben Affleck after the Grammys?
Ben Affleck attended the 65th Grammy Awards arguably because of Twitter, who couldn’t get enough of the Oscar winners “I’d rather be somewhere else” reaction shots during the Sunday show.
The “Gone Girl” star accompanied his wife, actor-singer Jennifer Lopez, to the ceremony and was seen performing throughout the night due to the power couple’s prime seating at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles , speeches and jokes responded. But Affleck — no stranger to angry memes — seemed detached in the background by host Trevor Noah’s frequent roaming monologues and bored or “miserable” throughout the night during performances, much to the delight of social media.
“Please someone check Ben Affleck #GRAMMYs,” he tweeted chick in the office Account.
For the record, we checked Affleck and a rep for him and reps for Lopez did not immediately respond to The Times requests for comment Monday.
Meanwhile, pictures and videos of the reserved “Argo” star director particularly lit up the social media platform a clip of a tense moment between him and Lopez that piqued the interest of Amateur Lipreader looking for Trouble in Paradise. Affleck and Lopez got married last year.
“When the publicist checks Twitter, he tells your wife to make you smile at the camera. Oh Ben Affleck,” wrote one user who tweeted the clip.
“Ben Affleck worries if P. Diddy will appear on 50 Years of Hip Hop…” added another, relating to Lopez’s ex’s possible involvement in one of the night’s standout performance collaborations.
And although the joint appearance of music legend Stevie Wonder and Chris Stapleton got the “Argo” star Affleck on his feet half-heartedly nodded along to the Motown tribute.
“Ben Affleck would rather be anywhere but front row at the #Grammys2023 watching Stevie Wonder destroy Higher Ground.” tweeted Daily Beast writer Matt Wilstein.
“Ben Affleck wants to go home, Jen. Everyone in this video looks like they’re swinging to a different song.” tweeted Another user.
“Ben Affleck is an introvert everywhere. You can see his batteries draining in real time. You’re already at 23% #GRAMMYs #SaveBen,” wrote other.
“Ben Affleck is the 8-year-old who’s being dragged to a wedding, wants to go home and play video games,” tweeted NFL veteran Matt Leinart.
“Ben Affleck gives off a big ‘only sober guy at a wedding where you don’t know anyone but your wife’ vibes.” wrote other.
Lopez, who is promoting her upcoming This Is Me…Now album, attended the awards ceremony to present the Pop Song Album award and was fully engaged when the winners took the stage. She particularly cheered for global superstar Bad Bunny, who won the award for the album música urbana, and as he saluted her beloved Puerto Rico.
Though television cameras frequently cropped onto the couple, roving photographers captured some moments of hilarity between Affleck and other attendees, including Dwayne Johnson, who was once seated at the couple’s table, and “Succession” actor Adrien Brody, who laughed out loud with his Oscar-winning Winner.
