Why Ben Affleck Wasn’t ‘His Usual Self’ During Grammys Date Night With Jennifer Lopez: Source
Ben Affleck wasn’t himself at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards. After the 50-year-old went viral for his less-than-thrilled facial expressions during the event, a source tells ET about Affleck’s date night with his wife, Jennifer Lopez.
“Jen and Ben had a fun date night out at the Grammys, but they have both have been very busy working on several projects, and Ben was feeling tired,” the source says. “He wanted to go and support Jen, but he wasn’t his usual self.”

“Jen had a great time and wanted Ben to be excited to be there, but she understood where he was coming from,” the source adds. “Jen knows Ben is a great husband and they still made sure to have a good night together.”
The source adds that Lopez “knows how supportive Ben is towards her and her work, but also gets that Ben is more of a homebody, and it isn’t his thing to be out at events all the time.”
“She is appreciative of his support whether it’s while they’re out and about or just hanging at home,” the source says.

After the awards show, Lopez seemingly addressed her husband’s trending memes by posting a subtle reference to their viral night at the Grammys on Instagram.
“Always the best time with my love, my husband,” Lopez wrote beneath a montage video highlighting her bejeweled Gucci gown. She set the video to “As It Was” by Harry Styles, who performed the song early in the ceremony and later took home Album of the Year, among others.
Lopez and Affleck were seated in the front row of the Grammys audience, where cameras repeatedly caught Affleck appearing to look bored during performances and presentations. Memes online of his expressions began almost instantly.
“Ben Affleck is how every man dragged to a couples baby shower looks,” one Twitter user joked.
