If you watched the 2023 Grammy Awards on Feb. 5, you might have noticed that Ben Affleck did not appear to be having fun. Every time the camera panned to the Armaggedon star, his face seemed to be reminiscent of someone who wanted to go home. It looked like his social clock ran out the minute he sat at his table, which was extremely noticeable considering he was sitting front row.
Since then, Affleck has become the main character of many memes, but one particular moment has gone viral, according to Cosmopolitan. In the clip, it looks like Bennifer had an awkward, heated moment captured on camera during Trevor Noah’s hosting bit.

What was Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s heated moment about?
As OK! Magazine reports, J.Lo appeared to scold her husband when he asked her a question after the Grammys returned post-commercial break. At first, it looks like the duo didn’t realize they were on camera, and when the actor whispered something into the “Let’s Get Loud” singer’s ear, she immediately whipped her head toward him and uttered something. Affleck then looked tense while Lopez lightly tapped him on the chest before they both turned their attention to the camera and smiled at Noah.
While there are many people who took to social media to try and guess what the conversation is about (and we have our own guesses as well), a lip reader told the Daily Mail what they think the couple’s conversation was really about.
The 53-year-old actress and singer reportedly appeared to say, “Stop. Look more friendly, look more motivated,” according to the reader. “I might,” Affleck replied.
