Ben Affleck said it’s a “common misconception” that he doesn’t enjoy himself at events.
“That’s how God made me,” he said “Jimmy Kimmel Live” as he defended his “very unhappy looking still face”.
The “Air” star went viral in February because she seemed like she really didn’t want to be at the Grammys.
Ben Afflecks Face has launched a A thousand memes but according to the actor, he just has a “unhappy looking still face.”
Appears on Tuesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live“to promote his new movie”Air‘ which tells the true story of how Nike landed Michael Jordan for a groundbreaking endorsement deal, the director/actor opened up about how it’s a ‘common misconception’ that he doesn’t enjoy himself at events.
Affleck went viral in February while attending this year’s Grammy Awards next to Jennifer Lopez and was filmed several times by the camera with a forlorn look on his face, as if he’d rather be somewhere else.
Kimmel, however, brought up another case in which the 50-year-old star’s “awkwardness” was on full display, proving Affleck doesn’t just seem disinterested in public.
“It seemed like you weren’t quite as excited about the party as everyone else,” Kimmel said of Affleck and Lopez’s Christmas party in December 2022.
Affleck threw back his head in a laugh before replying, “Look, that’s a common misconception about me.”
Kimmel suggested that Affleck should “tell his face” when he’s having a good time.
“I have a very unhappy looking calm face,” Affleck said, defending himself.
