Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s PDA at the Hollywood premiere of “The Flash” has left fans buzzing. But according to body language expert Judi James, their affectionate display may not be as genuine as it seems.
As the couple walked the red carpet, Affleck flashed a smile that appeared forced, with a hint of gritted teeth, according to James. Adding to the awkwardness, Affleck kept his hand firmly planted in his pants pocket and failed to turn his body towards Lopez during their kiss. James even speculated that their conversation may have been about orchestrating their PDA, suggesting that they were seeking agreement before embracing.
However, James’ assessment doesn’t necessarily mean that the couple is unhappy. In fact, it could be argued that Affleck is making an effort to appear happy for the sake of his ladylove. In a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Affleck admitted to having a naturally unhappy-looking resting face. So, despite the scowl he may have, don’t be fooled by his expression.
The Hollywood power couple has been making headlines since rekindling their romance earlier this year. After calling off their engagement in 2004, Affleck and Lopez found their way back to each other, much to the delight of their fans. Affectionately dubbed “Bennifer” by the media, their relationship has been closely followed by the public.
The premiere of “The Flash” marked one of their first public appearances together since getting back together. As they posed for photos and interacted with fans, all eyes were on them. And while their PDA may not have been picture-perfect, it certainly generated a lot of attention.
Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on Affleck’s smile and body language. Some expressed concern, wondering if there was trouble in paradise. Others defended the couple, arguing that public displays of affection can be awkward for anyone, especially in front of cameras and a crowd.
Regardless of the speculation, one thing is clear – Affleck and Lopez are a couple in the spotlight. Their every move is scrutinized, dissected, and analyzed. And with that level of attention, it’s no wonder that even a simple smile can become a topic of discussion.
But let’s not forget that these are real people with real feelings. It’s easy to forget that when we’re caught up in the excitement of celebrity gossip. Affleck and Lopez deserve the same privacy and understanding as anyone else, regardless of their fame.
So, the next time you see a photo of them together, remember that what you see may not always reflect the reality of their relationship. Behind the smiles and the cameras, there’s a story that only they know. And perhaps, that’s the way it should be.
