Despite the tense moment caught on camera, not everyone is convinced that Affleck and Lopez have relationship issues. Per Page Six, some fans believe that the paparazzi may be to blame for Affleck's apparent irritation in the viral video.

A fan pointed out, "I think they saw the cameraman when walking toward the car. He's right there. Jen keeps her head down, and Ben is naturally irritated as he motions to the cameraman at the end. When you're famous, not a minute of privacy should be the headline."

Another fan agreed, saying, "Dude, he's pissed off. He's being filmed. Again."

He added, "She goes, 'You better f**king not leave.' That's a husband-and-wife thing. I mean, some of it is. I'm like, 'All right, who is this act?'"

The "Argo" director made light of his severe facial expressions, even joking about it on late-night talk shows. "Listen, I have a very unhappy-looking resting face," Affleck told Jimmy Kimmel last March.

"This is me content," he added, as his face dropped blankly. He then made a serious-looking gesture and said, "This is me, amused. That's how God made me. You don't have to punish me for it."

The Oscar winner and Lopez began dating in the early 2000s after meeting on the set of "Gigli" and got engaged in 2002. The power couple eventually broke up two years later due to intense media scrutiny of their relationship. Both ended up marrying other stars, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Garner, and having kids.

It wasn't until 2021, after their divorces, the couple rekindled their love. They got engaged for a second time in April 2022 and had a private wedding in Las Vegas that July, followed by a lavish ceremony in Georgia last August.
