Garner shared that she forgets that she or anyone she loves is “out there in any way.” She said, per Daily Mail, “I don’t need to see anyone in my family made into a meme.” When asked if she’s seen any of Affleck’s viral memes on social media, Garner said no but joked that her ex is “quite meme-worthy.”

Ben Affleck Comments On His Viral Memes
During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Affleck spoke about the famous memes of his facial expressions. The “Gone Girl” star went viral on social media in February after photos of him looking bored at the 2023 Grammy Awards hit the internet.
According to the actor, his facial expressions have created a “common misconception” that he’s not having a good time. During the interview, Affleck and Kimmel spoke about a holiday party he and Lopez hosted in December 2022, where he also seemed bored.
The “Deep Water” star shared that he’s always had a “very unhappy-looking resting face,” which looks identical to his “content” and “amused” face. Affleck laughed as he added, “That’s how God made me. You don’t have to punish me for it.”
