Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez recently made headlines for all the wrong reasons when it seemed like they were fighting on the red carpet.
Since the Los Angeles event, where photographers were present to capture images of the well-known couple fighting, rumors have been rife. We’ll state it up front: most media outlets have most likely greatly exaggerated the story. Still, a lip reader has made clear what was said.
Affleck and Lopez were allegedly discussing positions and poses for their time in front of photographers rather than having any falling out, according to the lip reader who spoke with FEMAIL.
The lip reader claimed that J-Lo asked her companion if her low-cut top was “showing too much” during the conversation, which went viral as soon as photographs appeared online.
“Don’t worry, darling,” Affleck said, leaning into Lopez’s ear after assuring her everything would be great.
Then Lopez said, “Come up close to me.”
Affleck, who starred in Dogma, told Lopez, “That’s us, done,” before kissing her and asking if she was alright.
The couple’s interaction on the red carpet caught everyone’s attention because the day after, a video of Affleck “slamming” a car door in Lopez’s face appeared on TikTok.
The movie, which garnered the online moniker “miserable,” sparked rumors that the A-list couple was having arguments. Naturally, what happened at the premiere the following day only served to confirm these rumors.
Following Affleck, fans may remember another incident from February that made headlines: Lopez allegedly told the former to pretend he was having fun at the Grammy Awards.
“Look more friendly,” allegedly said J-Lo. “Look like you’re motivated.”
And Affleck responded, “I might.”
