Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck Had Another Tense Exchange Before Sharing A Kiss On The Red Carpet At Her Premiere Of “The Mother”
The analysis of the interactions and body language between the two players in the greatest love of our time, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, have become a sort of spectator sport. Will Jen yank a drink away from Ben to taste-test it for booze? Will Ben make a stank fart-face on camera when he has to sit next to Jen for several hours consecutively? Will Ben finally put Jen in her place about her ridiculous expectations the next time they’re in escrow on their fourth house of the month? And today’s edition of “How Much Longer Can This Marriage Possibly Last?” just took place at the premiere of Jen’s new movie, The Mother. Cameras caught the two seemingly in another tiff before they flipped on their smooch switch and turned up the romance as soon as the cameras began flashing.
According to Page Six, the two began their red carpet promenade with some finger-wagging and an annoyed-looking conversation.
The couple was walking the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere for J.Lo’s new movie “The Mother” on Wednesday night when they were spotted going from both looking very serious to seemingly smitten.
When they first arrived, Lopez, 53, was snapped having a very intense conversation with Affleck, 50, who looked bothered and stressed.
At one point, the “Argo” actor had a frown on his face and even held up his pointer finger at his wife, seemingly signaling the pair were having an argument.
But of course, when it came time for the money shots, they were able to pull it together to laugh, smile, and smooch in front of the step-and-repeat. Ben was right, Jen is great at performing when it’s time to look like she’s enjoying his company.
But as soon as they stepped onto the carpet, Lopez and Affleck kicked it into lovebird gear and shared a smooch for shutterbugs to capture.
From there, all seemed well for the pair as they continued to giggle and show PDA and were particularly adorable when Affleck lovingly watched as Lopez reapplied her lipgloss.
This is the shit Guadalupe Lopez prayed for? Bleak. Here’s the latest public quarrel they can add to true love’s scrapbook:

The Daily Mail hired a lip reader to look at the video, and the expert claims that they were talking about posing on the red carpet:
An expert lipreader told FEMAIL that during the interchange, Jennifer appears to ask Ben whether her low cut top is ‘showing too much’, prompting him to respond that it is fine.
After finding a spot to pose in, Ben appeared to tell his wife to come closer to him, before leaning into her ear and saying ‘don’t worry babe’.
His wife responds, telling him ‘come close to me’.
Once the couple have stood for photos, Ben says ‘that’s us done’, before kissing Jennifer, and asking is she is ok.
J-Lo responds by saying ‘yes’, then saying they need to ‘step over there’.
And this situation is right on the heels of Ben miserably opening the car door for Jen before miserably slamming it. via Page Six:
[Ben] is seen opening the car door for the “Let’s Get Loud” singer…after a coffee run in Los Angeles on Tuesday. However, after Lopez steps into the vehicle, Affleck appears to slam the car door in a way that made fans question his mood.
“Ohh s–t! That’s Ben Affleck visibly irritated slamming that door on Jennifer Lopez,” one person tweeted. “Ufff… ”
“you can ‘have it all’ and still be miserable,” noted another.
A third wrote, “He purposefully looks away from her while she’s getting in the car. They definitely fighting lol.”
Heyyy, that coffee doesn’t look like Dunkin’! That must’ve been his problem here:

Even though the description of The Mother says Jen plays “an assassin who comes out of hiding in the remote wilderness to protect the daughter she was forced to leave as a newborn baby from vengeful criminals,” it seems like her real role of “the mother” these days consists of having to quell little Dear Ben’s constant sulking and reminding him to put away his searing RBF (resting Ben face)!
