Ben Affleck's bored expression at the Grammys becomes a meme
"Ben Affleck is giving husband forced to come to wife’s office party vibes."
Years after the iconic "Sad Affleck", actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck has inspired another meme.
This is after the star attended the Grammys with his wife, actress and singer Jennifer Lopez, who presented the award for Best Pop Vocal Album, which went to Harry Styles.
However, Affleck did not seem too enthused to be there as evidenced by the bored expression on his face as Stevie Wonder performed his hit song 'Higher Ground'.

Some users even said that Affeck's expression reminded them of the 'Sad Affleck' meme from a few years ago.
That meme was inspired by a clip from an interview in which the actor looked despondent while promoting his movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with co-star Henry Cavill.
Affleck later commented on the meme while speaking to BBC Radio 1.
Asked what he learned from working on such a big production, the actor responded: "It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don't say anything and they can lay Simon and Garfunkel tracks over it."
