A Lip Reader on J.Lo and Ben Affleck’s Viral Red Carpet “Fight”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck just stepped out for the premiere of J.Lo’s Netflix movie Mother, and some corners of the internet are fully convinced that they argued on the red carpet. Mostly because of these somewhat tense photos:

But a few things! One, these photos aren’t really representative of Bennifer’s overall vibe on the carpet that night, which was a lot of it:

Two, the Daily mail Dusted off a lip reader which confirmed their conversation was mostly just about posing for pictures. as was in them not argue. First, J.Lo asked Ben if her top was “too much showing” and he replied that it was fine. Ben then whispered to Jennifer “don’t worry baby” and she said “come close to me.”

After he was done with their photos, Ben said “we’re done,” kissed Jennifer and asked if she was okay. She then reportedly replied “yes” and said they should “walk over there”—presumably for more photos.

Soooo, basically just two people talking about logistics. Not exactly dramatic! (Psst: Here’s a video in case you’re in the mood to analyze.)

Speaking of Bennifer lip readings, never forget the tense convo they had during the Grammys where a lip reader claimed J.Lo told Ben “Look more friendly. Look motivated” and he shot back “I might.”

Ben actually talked about the viral moment The Hollywood Reporter, and said, “They framed us in this shot, but I didn’t know they were rolling. I was leaning into her and I was like, ‘As soon as they start rolling, I’m going to slide away from you and leave you sitting next to Trevor .’ She says, “You better not leave.” It’s a husband and wife thing.”
