Ben Affleck has addressed why he often appears upset when captured in photos by paparazzi, claiming the speculation about his emotional state is all wrong.

Kevin Hart probed the subject of the countless “Sad Affleck” memes for Thursday’s episode of his “Hart to Heart” podcast.

The “Good Will Hunting” star admitted to being “a little bit shy” and explained that he doesn’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, ‘OK, here we go,’” Affleck continued.

The 51-year-old — who shares three kids with ex-wife Jennifer Garner — added that he doesn’t “give a f–” if he’s photographed by himself or while attending an event, but does get pissed off when shutterbugs snap photos while he’s with his family.

“Actually, what I’d like to do is much more definitive than just look at you like this,” he said. “I don’t mind; you can take my picture at a club or a premiere, with my wife … Knock yourself out. I don’t notice you. But with my children, that’s a different thing.”

Hart jokingly cracked that Affleck has “resting b— face,” to which Affleck replied: “I have resting hard face.”

“People are projecting something onto me that I don’t feel about myself at all,” he told the comedian.

The conversation was recorded in January, before rumors started to circulate that his marriage to Jennifer Lopez was on the rocks.
