Why Does Ben Affleck Look so Done?

Ben Affleck, renowned actor and director, recently opened up about his often misunderstood expressions during the season 4 premiere of Kevin Hart’s talk show, Hart to Heart. Known for sparking countless memes with his seemingly sad, confused, and angry looks, Affleck clarified why he often appears frustrated in paparazzi photos, especially when accompanied by his family.

In a candid conversation with Hart, Affleck shared, “I’m also a little bit shy. I don’t like a lot of attention. That’s why people see me and they’re like, ‘Why’s this dude always mad?’ Because somebody has their camera and sticks it in my face and I’m like, ‘Okay, here we go.'” He emphasized that this frustration escalates when his children are involved.

“Actually, what I’d like to do is much more definitive than just look at you like this,” Affleck continued. “I don’t mind if you take my picture at a club or a premiere with my wife [Jennifer Lopez]. I don’t give a f—. Knock yourself out. I don’t notice you. But with my children, that’s a different thing.”

Affleck also addressed the perception of his expressions, admitting, “By the way, I also might be somebody who… I’ll be sitting at home, and they’re like, ‘What’s wrong?’ ‘Nothing. Nothing’s wrong.’ I’m like, ‘Nothing. I’m listening to this thing.’ I start thinking, is something wrong?”

In a humorous exchange, Hart suggested that Affleck might suffer from “resting bitch face,” to which Affleck quipped, “Bitch?! Now, now, I have resting hard face.” He further noted that the online reaction to his expressions often doesn’t reflect his true feelings. “People are projecting something onto me that I don’t feel about myself at all,” he added.

Affleck’s openness about his perceived demeanor sheds light on the challenges celebrities face with constant public scrutiny, especially when it affects their family life. This discussion highlights the discrepancy between public perception and personal reality, and Affleck’s ability to laugh at himself adds a human touch to his public persona.
