Benjamin Géza Affleck is trending! Well, not because he just made his Grammy debut alongside Jennifer Lopez! But, his lifeless facial expression during the show has helped the actor become a social media sensation. In fact, it has become one of the most popular memes of this season.
The American actor and filmmaker, who attended the ceremony with his wife Lopez, sat at a table near the front and was seen looking downcast for the majority of the event. The Last Duel star is no stranger to the meme world. He has been mocked numerous times, frequently for appearing frustrated or emotionally overwhelmed.
The Grammys 2023 meme appears to have struck a chord with self-identified introverts, who are aware of how miserable they can feel in social situations that others may find enjoyable. His ability to smile was almost nonexistent whenever the camera pointed at him and Lopez.
In a video that has received a lot of attention on Twitter, the Justice League star can be seen nodding while listening to live music with a hurt look on his face.

Naturally, Twitter savored every second of his agony, going bonkers over Affleck’s blatant lack of interest in music’s biggest night.
Ben Affleck was called out for looking extremely ‘miserable’ at Grammys 2023
The 50-year-old actor was with his 53-year-old popstar wife, who was dressed in a sheer blue dress covered in sparkling sequins. The biggest music event had a buzzing, upbeat vibe, but Ben Affleck seemed to be sitting with a glum expression on his face, unlike other A-list celebrities. This led the Pearl Harbor star to be the subject of countless tweets and memes as a result of one such weird incident.
We observed Jennifer Lopez dancing and clapping while paying musical homage to Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson, while Affleck sat there looking miserable. As a result, he became the focus of some hilarious memes made by Twitter users who were riveted by his expression.
Ben Affleck in the video, according to one fan, “represents every introvert everywhere” who feels worn out at social gatherings. Another fan tweeted, “He’s 10 minutes away from crying during a smoke break“

Does Ben Affleck find the Grammys boring?
All the Hollywood A-listers enjoyed Stevie Wonder’s performance of Higher Ground while Ben Affleck maintained an emotionless expression while standing still next to his radiant wife, Jennifer Lopez.
The legendary performer belted out one of his biggest hits, getting everyone up and moving to the beat. The Armageddon star, on the other hand, appeared to find it extremely boring, and simply ignores it. Affleck didn’t seem to be as thrilled as the other guests.
While anyone can appear a little bored during a televised event and avoid becoming a meme, Affleck is an exception, largely because of his previous sad Affleck moments. We’ve all noticed the actor appearing a little downhearted while smoking, running to get coffee, and in his earlier infamous photo taken on a cloudy beach day.
Along with Stevie Wonder, the list of performers from the night included Sam Smith, Harry Styles, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Bad Bunny, Luke Combs, Lizzo, and Kim Petras. Beyonce received honors for Best Dance/Electronic Music Album, Best Traditional R&B Performance, Best Dance/Electronic Recording, and Best R&B Song. While Harry Styles’ Harry’s House won Album of the Year.
