Hollywood actor Ben Affleck has reacted to a rumoured disagreement with his newly wedded wife Jennifer Lopez at the recently staged 65th Grammy awards ceremony.
Recall that social media was awash on Sunday, February 5, with a video of the newly wedded couple having a seemingly tense conversation during the awards ceremony.
In the viral video, Ben Affleck was seen whispering something to Jennifer Lopez, who seemingly responds in disagreement before placing her hand on her chest.
Ben Affleck has now finally shared what he whispered to Jennifer Lopez at the 2023 Grammy Awards when asked about the memes during an interview for The Hollywood Reporter published on Thursday.

The actor insisted that he had a “good time” at the event.
“I saw (host Trevor Noah approach) and I was like, ‘Oh, God.’ They were framing us in this shot, but I didn’t know they were rolling,” he recalled. “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.”
Ben went on to note that he wasn’t bothered by the memes suggesting he was unimpressed by the entertainment but felt hurt by the claims that he had been drinking.
“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,” the 50-year-old continued. “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 disincentives people from making their lives better.” He said.
