As OK! reported, fans couldn't help but poke fun at the Oscar winner's demeanor throughout the Sunday, February 5, event, as he appeared stoic and bored, but at one point, something he said seemed to upset his wife.
In a viral clip going around on social media, host of the night, Trevor Noah, began talking as they returned from commercial while sitting next to the newlyweds.
At first, the duo didn't realize they were on screen, and the dad-of-three, 50, whispered something in Lopez's ear, to which she immediately whipped her head around at him, uttered something and lightly tapped him in the chest. Affleck then recognized they're being watched, and he appeared to mutter "camera" under his breath, prompting both of them to smile, with the "Let's Get Loud" crooner, 53, turning her attention to Noah.
Viewers were in stitches over the moment, with one commenting on TikTok, "How long do you think they are gonna stick this out just to prove us wrong. 😂😂."
Others couldn't help but mention Affleck's ex-wife, with one writing, "Jennifer Garner at home eating popcorn 🍿 like …. 'Girlllllll he’s your problem now' 😂😂😂."
"Grammy producers said 'Jennifer Garner, baby, you will be AVENGED!' 😂," quipped another.
