According to a report by the Daily Mail, Affleck and Lopez, who recently tied the knot, were spotted at a red light having yet another tense exchange while driving in Beverly Hills.

Photos taken by a tourist and obtained by the news outlet showed an upset Affleck behind his Rivian electric SUV wheel, engaging in a heated conversation with Lopez, who sat beside him in the passenger seat. Both parties appeared so caught up in the conversation that they seemed oblivious to any possible onlookers or eavesdroppers nearby.

According to the tourist, the "Deep Water" actor could be seen gesturing wildly with his hands as he talked to Lopez, who appeared "timid," indicating that the couple was engaged in an intense and potentially heated discussion.

"J.Lo looked a little bit sad. They were so deep in conversation that they didn't even look to the side once. They only looked at each other and the traffic light," the source revealed. "It looks heated on his end, a discussion or argument. There were no other cars or people on the street."

The recent photos come just a day after a viral video showed a frustrated-looking Affleck slamming his car door after his wife got in.

These incidents have led armchair analysts to question the happiness of the couple's union, with many suggesting they are "miserable" in their marriage.

While some claim the actor looked visibly frustrated with Lopez in the viral video, others believe Affleck was only annoyed with the paparazzi who were openly recording them as they made their way to their vehicle.

A day before the car-door-slamming viral video, the duo raised eyebrows at the premiere of Lopez's latest film, "The Mother," in LA. During the red carpet photo session, the couple appeared awkward, with Lopez frowning and motioning at Affleck. However, per Daily Mail, a lip reader confirmed that it was far from an argument.

After their tense conversation, the couple reverted to a more relaxed mode with beaming grins and stage-worthy kisses. Another lip-reading moment revealed Lopez asking Affleck if her low-cut top was "showing too much," to which he responded that it looked fine.

Later, as they posed for pictures, the "Air" actor asked Lopez to get closer and whispered in her ear, "Don't worry, babe." Jennifer seemingly responded by telling him to come closer to her.

Ben Affleck Jokes About His 'Unhappy-Looking' Resting Face

Affleck has a great sense of humor about his severe and often misunderstood facial expressions, even joking on late-night talk shows.

During an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last March, the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" actor made light of the topic and said, "This is me content," while making a blank expression. He then switched to a serious-looking gesture and added, "This amused me. That's how God made me. You don't have to punish me for it."

Affleck and Lopez have a long history of on-again, off-again romance. The two started dating in the early 2000s and were engaged in 2002, but their relationship ended two years later.

It wasn't until 2021 that the couple rekindled their love after their respective divorces. They got engaged again in April 2022 and had a low-key and intimate wedding in Las Vegas that July, followed by a more elaborate ceremony in Georgia last August.
