The reason for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s tense appearances at the “Mother” premiere has been revealed.
A lip reader told the Daily Mail that the couple, who seem frustrated and frustrated at times, only discussed poses and positions for red carpet photographers at the event in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
During the now-viral exchange, the expert said the “Let’s Get Loud” singer asked the “Air” star if her low-cut top was “showing too much” and asked her to reply that it was fine.
After finding their joint pose, Affleck appeared to tell his wife to approach him before leaning into his ear and saying, “Don’t worry baby.”
“Come closer to me,” Lopez apparently replied.
After their completed photos, the “Argo” director turned to the “Shotgun Wedding” actress and said, “Here we are, we’re done” before kissing her and asking if she’s okay.
Lopez said, “Yes,” and then informed Affleck that they needed to “step in there.”
The newlyweds then continued to collect the PDA and looked adorable when Affleck, 50, fondly watched Lopez, 53, reapply her lip gloss.
Although the red carpet rows were defused, Lopez and Affleck found themselves again at the center of negative press when a clip of Lopez and Affleck “slammed” on their door circulated on TikTok.
The so-called “miserable” footage was taken on Tuesday, the day before the “Mother” premiere, and fans thought the couple was fighting.
“Ohh s–t! This is Ben Affleck visibly pissed off when he slams that door on Jennifer Lopez,” one person tweeted.
“You can have ‘everything’ and still be unhappy,” said another.

A third said, “She deliberately avoids her gaze as she gets in the car. They’re definitely fighting lol.
Others wrote the swap because the A-listers noticed a paparazzi and were frustrated.
The Oscar-winning actor has gained notoriety for his moody looks since it was revealed that J.Lo had scolded him at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
However, the “Missing Girl” star later clarified the situation by telling The Hollywood Reporter that he was just joking with his wife for a moment.
Affleck explained that when he realized that the camera crew had “framed” them on the shoot, he said to Lopez: “As soon as it starts to boil, I’ll walk away from you and leave you sitting next to me. [the host] Trevor [Noah]”
“He says, ‘You better not go,'” he added. “It’s a husband and wife thing. I mean, some of it is. ‘Well, who’s that number?’ I’m like.”
