Ben Affleck has insisted that had a whale of a time at the Grammys, despite going viral for his ‘bored’ facial expression in the audience.

The Batman actor accompanied wife Jennifer Lopez to the annual bash, held at Arena in LA on February 5.

However, he appeared to be glum whenever the camera panned over to their star-studded table – including one moment where host Trevor Noah stopped by for an impromptu chat.

Many watching on from home were mesmerized by the footage, with the Oscar-winner instantly becoming a meme on social media.

In a new chat, Ben was questioned about the evening, and whether he was fussed over the response.

‘No. I had a good time at the Grammys,’ he vowed to the Hollywood Reporter. ‘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.

‘I saw [Trevor approach] and I was like, “Oh, God.” They were framing us in this shot, but I didn’t know they were rolling. 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**king not leave.” That’s a husband-and-wife thing.

‘I mean, some of it is, I’m like, “All right, who is this act?” Like, I don’t keep up. My wife does, obviously. And yeah, it is your wife’s work event. And I’ve gone to events and been p***ed 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.

‘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. I do think it disincentivizes people from making their lives better.’

Despite unwittingly going viral, Ben and Jennifer – aka Bennifer – looked totally smitten as they appeared at the Grammys together, ahead of their first wedding anniversary.

The couple sent fans into a spin when they reunited in 2021, nearly 20 years after famously calling off their engagement in 2004.
