Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s marriage has never been far from fans’ minds, with some of their more recent exchanges raising a few eyebrows.
Recent exchanges have led social media detectives to claim he must be ‘miserable’ in their marriage.
Tongues first started wagging when the pair appeared to have a tense exchange at the 2023 Grammy Awards, though both have since brushed it off.
On Wednesday, Ben went viral when a social media video showed him appearing to slam a car door, after JLo stepping in following a coffee run together.
So, as fans continue to cast their eye on Ben and Jennifer’s relationship, MailOnline has taken a look-back at some of their most fraught moments.
A passionate honeymoon dinner
Impassioned: Mere days after Ben and Jennifer tied the knot in August, he was spotted vigorously gesturing with his head and hands while out to dinne
Mere days after Ben and Jennifer tied the knot in August, he was spotted vigorously gesturing with his head and hands while out to dinner with his new bride Jennifer Lopez at a ritzy Italian hotel.
The pair were photographed at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Lake Como in Northern Italy, the first sighting of the celebrity couple since their blockbuster weekend wedding at Affleck’s $8.9million Georgia ‘plantation’ estate.
Ben shook his head side to side and spoke rapidly as Jennifer listened on. His hands flashed up and down and side to side, and he leaned in to Jennifer with a series of animated expressions on his face.
Jennifer shifted in her seat but appeared to listen intently as her fourth husband spoke.
They could be seen looking at what appeared to be photos from their wedding on Ben’s phone, which he held up several times to share with his beaming bride.
The couple left the hotel hand-in-hand around 10:30pm local time.
A steely Grammy’s exchange
Uh-oh! Jennifer and Ben were caught in the middle of a tense exchange at the 2023 Grammy Awards, where a lipreader said she told her husband to ‘look more motivated’
As they both attended the star-studded music awards in February, Jennifer and Ben appeared to put on a united front as they took their place in the audience.
Lopez and Affleck, who frequently looks strained and angry when in public, were seen exchanging tense words during the ceremony, right as host Trevor Noah sat down next to them.
‘Stop,’ Lopez tells him. ‘Look more friendly. Look motivated.’ Affleck replies: ‘I might.’
The couple’s exchange was transcribed by a lipreader, commissioned by DailyMail.com.
Ben later clarified the moment, revealing that he was joking with Jennifer but then realized the camera was on them.
‘As soon as they start rolling, I’m going to slide away from you and leave you sitting next to Trevor,’ he said he told Jennifer, via his interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
‘She goes “You better f*****g not leave. That’s a husband and wife thing. I mean some of it is.” I’m like, “All right, who is this act?”‘
Red carpet tension
At odds? Earlier this week, Jennifer was seen gesticulating at her husband while they attended the premiere of her new movie The Mother
Happier times: After they were snapped during their tense chat, they soon reverted to Hollywood mode with beaming grins and stage-worthy kisses
Earlier this week, Ben and Jennifer attended the premiere for her new movie The Mother.
The Get Loud songstress, 53, had a frown on her face and was gesticulating at her husband, 50, who she married last year, while he looked angry, though a lipreader clarified that it was far from an argument.
After they were snapped having their tense conversation, they soon reverted to Hollywood mode with beaming grins and stage-worthy kisses.
A lipreader confirmed with Ben if her low-cut top was ‘showing too much,’ pushing him to respond that it looked fine.
Later on when the couple managed to find their right pose, the Air actor asked his wife to get a little closer, then he leaned into her ear and said, ‘don’t worry, babe.’
To which Lopez seemingly responded saying, ‘come close to me.’
After the photo shoot, Affleck turned to Jennifer and said ‘that’s us, done’, he then gave her a kiss and asked, if she was OK.
‘Yes’ she replied with Jennifer going onto tell Ben that they needed to ‘step over there.’
