Ben Affleck's Explanation of Grammy Awards Moment with Jennifer Lopez

The 63rd Grammy Awards was a star-studded event with some of the biggest names in the music industry in attendance. However, one particular moment between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez caught the attention of the viewers and was the talk of the town for days to come.

A video of the couple seemingly having an argument went viral on social media, leaving fans wondering what actually happened.

The Viral Video: Fact or Fiction?

In the video, Ben Affleck appeared tired and disinterested, with many speculating that he was not having a good time at the awards show.

However, the actor was quick to clear the air in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. He explained, "I saw [host Trevor] and I was like, 'Oh God.' They were framing us in this shot, but I didn't know they were rolling.

I leaned into her and I was like, 'As soon they start rolling, I'm going to slide away from you and leave you sitting next to Trevor.' " He added, "JLo goes, 'You better f***ing not leave.' That's a husband-and-wife thing." Ben described the situation as a normal exchange between a husband and wife, even though it did not appear that way in the video.

A lip reader had previously checked what Jennifer Lopez had said to her husband at the moment differently, claiming she said, "Stop it. Try to be more likeable. Look motivated."

The Real Story: A Lighthearted Moment

In reality, the couple was actually enjoying a lighthearted moment during the awards show. According to a seat filler, they were "super lovey dovey" and their "hands were always intertwined." Jennifer Lopez showed Ben Affleck her phone and was like, "Oh my god, honey.

Look at this meme circulating about you" and he was like, "Oh god, this again." The actress added, "I know she was on her phone and saw it and was like, 'honey, this is so funny. Look at this'" Ben Affleck knew during the performance that he was a meme, and he chose not to change his expression.

The couple often appeared in the frame during the Grammys, and to many, it seemed as if the actor was bored the whole time, which made him the subject of ridicule on social networks.
