“JLo showed Ben Affleck the phone and was like, ‘Oh my God, honey, look at this meme circulating about you!’ And he was like, ‘Oh God, this again.’ Like, he knew during the performance that he was a meme,” influencer @almostannna claimed in a TikTok video posted on Wednesday.

“Like, he knew, and he also chose just not to change his expression!” she continued. “I love how unbothered that is. So, I know that she was on her phone and saw it and was like, ‘Honey, this is so funny, like look at this.’ And he was like, ‘Jesus Christ.’”

Though the TikToker said the “Gone Girl” actor didn’t look happy” to be there, she said he and Lopez were still “cute and s–t” and “super lovey-dovey.”
