Awards ceremonies are, by all accounts, incredibly boring. But while most people try and hide their feelings behind a smile, Ben Affleck's bored expression at the Grammys quickly became a meme online.
And according to a nearby seat-filler at the awards ceremony, his wife Jennifer Lopez told him at the time that he was going viral. Watch her recount her story here:
TikToker @almostannna - who was one of the seat-fillers at the event - claims she was sat right by the recently reunited couple, and she lifted the lid on the conversations she earwigged on.
In a video shared on the platform, she said: "I sat next to Ben Affleck at the Grammys. Me and my seat-filler friend Jake, and Ben Affleck was right there.
"I was next to them for a good bit, that was my favourite seat because I was right in front of Beyonce...
"So I didn't know the meme about Ben Affleck being upset at awards shows, like I didn't know that was a thing, and we also didn't talk to them because Ben Affleck didn't look happy so I didn't want to talk to him and be like, 'Oh my God, Good Will Hunting is one of my favourite movies! You're my hero!'"
She went on: "I was just so lucky to be next to them! The whole time they were cute and s**t... J.Lo showed Ben Affleck the phone and was like, 'Oh my God, honey, look at this meme circulating about you!'
"And he was like, 'Oh God, this again'. Like, he knew during the performance that he was a meme.
'Like, he knew, and he also chose just not to change his expression. Like, I love how unbothered he is.
"So I know that she was like on her phone and saw it and was like, 'Honey, this is so funny, look at this.' And he was like, 'Jesus Christ.'"
But while Affleck looked as though he'd rather have been almost anywhere else, TikToker Anna said he and Lopez were super smitten with each other throughout the awards.
She continued: "They were super lovey dovey, like their hands were always intertwined. I don't know how to describe it.
"But they just were! So it wasn't like, 'Oh my God, this is going to lead to divorce!' Like, they were cute!"
