Ben Affleck is self-aware enough to know that there's always some sort of backlash or furor lurking near the corner, despite his many criticisms.
Since winning an Academy Award for co-writing Good Will Hunting alongside Matt Damon, the star has been accused of not being a particularly gifted actor, while his downfall in the mid-2000s was even welcomed in some places by his fiercest critics.
The 50-year-old knows that he has no other option but to brush it off. Yet, that doesn't mean we wouldn't want to hear the conversations going down during the Grammy Awards when he and Jennifer Lopez discovered in real-time that his miserable experience at the ceremony has become an instant meme.
An anonymous source disclosed to Entertainment Tonight that "Jen and Ben are both aware of the circulating memes of Ben," before stating that "she had shown him a few photographs that night." People would pay great money to be a fly on the wall when Lopez informed her husband that he'd only created Sadfleck 2.0.
Affleck, an enormously wealthy and enormously famous man, couldn't care less about what the online conversation has to say about him, but that didn't prevent his hilariously rude expression from turning out to be one of the most talked about moments throughout the evening.
