A lip reader has shared what Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were saying during a seemingly ‘tense’ red carpet exchange. 

Affleck, 50, and Lopez, 53, first began dating in 2002 but came to a shock split two years later.

Despite their short-lived relationship, they became known as one of Hollywood’s biggest couples.

So when they reunited in 2021, fans were left absolutely delighted – and even more so when they tied the knot in the following year.

However, the A-list couple has been continually spotted having seemingly tense exchanges – and their latest has been examined.

Affleck and Lopez attended the premiere of her new film The Mother on Wednesday and during their appearance, they walked the red carpet.

While posing for the cameras, many fans noted that the couple appeared to be talking and although at first glance it appears as though they discussing how to pose for the paparazzi, there may be more to it.

An expert lip reader tells MailOnline that the ‘On The Floor’ singer appears to ask Affleck whether her low-cut top is ‘showing too much’, which prompts him to say it’s fine.

After ascertaining where they should stand, the Good Will Hunting actor then appears to tell his wife to come closer to him, leaning into her ear and saying: “Don’t worry babe.”

Lopez replies, telling him ‘come close to me’.

Following the paparazzi shots, Affleck says ‘that’s us done’ and the couple then they exchange a kiss, before he then asks Lopez if she’s OK.

The Marry Me star reassures her husband she is and then tells him they need to ‘step over there’.

While the lip reader says the exchange suggests everything is fine between the married couple, others are taking to Twitter and insisting there’s more to it.

Another insists: “He looks so intense.”

While somebody else comments: “Seems he’s the unhappiest husband in Hollywood.”

However, others are taking to the comments and defending the couple.

This isn’t the first time an exchange between Affleck and Lopez has been closely examined.

At the 65th annual Grammy Awards, the couple became a talking point after the camera zoomed in on them.

In the clip, Affleck can be seen whispering in Lopez’s ear, which results in her seemingly snapping at him in response.

A transcriber has since told the Daily Mail that the actress told her husband to ‘stop’, while adding: “Look more friendly. Look motivated.”

While a woman who was sitting at the couple’s table also shared her analysis of the two.
