ben Affleck tends to turn himself into hilarious memes — and as he flies away with Jennifer Lopez and their kids to celebrate his birthday… he seems to be replaying a classic.
The Newlyweds boarded a private plane Saturday at the Van Nuys Airport in LA with a few of their kids in tow, it seems. We recognize two of BA’s children here, but it is unclear whether Jen’s little ones are already inside or already there. In any case, this trip is a family affair.
No word on where they’ll ring in the big 5-0 for Ben — his actual birthday is Monday — but we’re sure we’ll find out soon enough. Meanwhile… what’s up with that long face???
Check out Ben here…who, in most of these shots, seems quite stern in his behavior – if not just downright disappointed. Sure, just because he looks a little sad here doesn’t necessarily mean he’s not excited for the festivities – he probably is – but it’s just funny to see what he looked like just as he was getting ready for a huge milestone of life.
J Lo himself didn’t look all that cheerful either…just business-like getting their shit out of the car and making sure everyone/everything got up the stairs on time.
Admittedly, these moments are the not-so-fun part of travel… all the lugging and boarding and checking to see if everything is in order for a big vacation, so that could be what’s going on here. Still, though…with Ben’s history of appearing downtrodden, it’s remarkable.
There’s the famous ‘Batman v Superman’ interview where he stares into space with a dejected look. Plus, his infamous bareback looking out on the beach …and of course his eyes closed cigarette moment from then. The guy seems to be channeling gloom and doom a bit.
Get up, kid! you are married to Jennifer Lopezand you turn 50 — life is good!
