As the world watched, Ben Affleck sat in the audience of a star-studded pre-Grammys event with a seemingly cheerful look on his face. Jennifer Lopez, however, couldn’t help but poke fun at her ex-fiance’s cheery expression. In this article, we take a closer look at Jennifer’s lighthearted reaction and weigh in on why it made for such a great moment.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Pre-Grammys ‘Happy Face’
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were all smiles at the pre-Grammys party on Sunday night.
The exes, who attended the event together, were caught laughing and joking around by photographers.
It’s good to see that the two are still on good terms despite their split back in 2004.
Do you think Jennifer and Ben would make a good couple again?
Jennifer Lopez’s Reaction
Jennifer Lopez was spotted heading into a studio in Los Angeles on Thursday, and she had a good laugh at her ex-husband Ben Affleck’s pre-Grammys “happy face.”
The duo, who were married from 1997 to 2004, have been spending time together lately, and they were all smiles as they left J.Lo’s home on Wednesday.
But it looks like J.Lo is the only one who found humor in Affleck’s cheesy grin, as she was seen giggling while looking at photos of him on her phone.
Lopez has moved on from their relationship and is now dating Alex Rodriguez, but it seems like she still has a sense of humor when it comes to her former flame.
No matter what their history is, it’s nice to see them on good terms and with laughing at the same joke.
Public Reactions to the Incident
Public reaction to the incident was mixed. Some people found it humorous, while others felt that it was an example of Lopez’s disrespect for her ex-husband.
Some social media users joked about the incident, with one user writing, “Aww, looks like someone’s still got a bit of a crush on JLo.” Others speculated that Affleck may have been trying to send a message to his ex-wife with the facial expression.
Others were critical of Lopez, with some accusing her of being insensitive to Affleck’s struggles with addiction. One Twitter user wrote, “It’s really not funny anymore when your life is in shambles and you’re trying to get better.”
At the same time, some people argued that Lopez was simply reacting naturally to a humorous situation, while others said that this incident should be taken with a grain of salt.
How It Has Impacted Their Relationship
Clearly, Ben Affleck’s pre-Grammys “happy face” didn’t fool Jennifer Lopez.
The actress and former prodigy was photographed on Saturday night (February 11) at 1OAK in Hollywood, where she stepped out for a rare public appearance without her boyfriend of almost two years.
Lopez kept her head down and wore a serious expression as she made her way through the club, surrounded by security. But when photographers caught up to her and asked about Affleck’s happy face comment from earlier in the day, she couldn’t help but laugh.
It’s no secret that Affleck has had some struggles in recent years, so it’s heartening to see him in such good spirits lately. However, his comment about Lopez potentially being the reason behind his happy face did raise some eyebrows.
Naturally, questions about the state of their relationship followed this latest public appearance sans Affleck. According to reports, it appears that their relationship is still strong and stable despite the few bumps they’ve encountered in recent months. If anything, the couple has grown even closer and more supportive of each other, which is no doubt a positive sign going forward.
No matter what reports may say though, only time will tell how this pair’s relationship will pan out in the long run.
