Ben Affleck Reveals What Jennifer Lopez Said During Viral Grammys Moment
Celebrities are often followed by the paparazzi, but few have cameras pointed so squarely at them, like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. The couple has a decades-long history, and after marriages, children, and divorce on both ends, they found their way back together. Some view this as a romantic story unlike any other, while critics pick apart their every move. Affleck and Lopez have wed once again, and now that they're enjoying wedded bliss, they have welcomed even more attention.
An example would be the two at this year's Grammy Awards. During the ceremony, cameras panned over to Bennifer, who was at their table having a private moment. The two were whispering to one another, and to viewers, the conversation looked tense. Not to mention, Affleck was trolled over, seemingly looking unhappy and bored at the coveted event. The actor laid speculation to rest in a feature with The Hollywood Reporter. "No. I had a good time at the Grammys," he revealed.
Ben Affleck Shares Details Of Whispered Conversation With Lopez
"My wife was going, and I thought, 'Well, there'll be good music. It might be fun.' At movie award shows, it's speeches and, like, sound-mixing webinars. But I thought this would be fun." However, Affleck's blood pressure rose when Grammys host Trevor Noah came near their table for a segment. "I saw [Trevor] and I was like, 'Oh, God.' They were framing us in this shot, but I didn't know they were rolling," Affleck added. "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.' She goes, 'You better f*cking not leave.' That's a husband-and-wife thing."
The Oscar winner also admitted that when it comes to the music industry, he doesn't really know who's who. He asks Lopez to keep him up to date because she's well aware. "And yeah, it is your wife's work event. And I've gone to events and been pissed off. I've gone and been bored. I've gone to award shows and been drunk, a bunch. Nobody ever once said I'm drunk. [But at the Grammys] they were like, 'He's drunk.' And I thought, that's interesting."
A Road To Recovery
Affleck has been open about his recovery and battling alcoholism. "That raises a whole other thing about whether or not it's wise to acknowledge addiction because there's a lot of compassion, but there is still a tremendous stigma, which is often quite inhibiting." The actor believes that accusing a person in recovery of simply being drunk "disincentivizes" people from being open about their journeys. Check out the clip of Ben and Jennifer at the Grammys above.
