The actor opened up to Jimmy Kimmel about the 'common misconception' surrounding his enjoyment of public events.
Some people have really expressive faces where you can see how joyful they are and excited to be places.
Sometimes, you're Ben Affleck.

"That's how God made me."
Affleck, whose facial expressions have often been used as memes, wanted people to know he does have joy and fun, but it's hard for anyone to know that about him because of his face.
Folks reacted to him defending his Resting Ben Face with empathy.

\u201c@TMZ Same here. People ask what's wrong and I often say I'm tired when I'm not even. Usually I'm just deep thinking and thus have a blank expression.\u201d— TMZ (@TMZ) 1680175822
Some are still concerned he's not happy.

Still others came up with more explanations for his facial expressions.
Like maybe he's just tired.
\u201c@PetitPoulet75 Seems like he has resting exhausted face\u201d— Ben Affleck's Mood (@Ben Affleck's Mood) 1675651124
Or maybe it's where he's from.
However, many people noted at least he's got a good looking face, even if it's hard to read happier emotions on it sometimes.

Seeing as Affleck's face and acting have gotten him this far, it's probably okay the way it is.
