‘Rebellious teenager’: Jennifer Lopez flipped the bird at paparazzi to 'impress' Ben Affleck, says expert
'Her facial expression, with the slightly twisted smile, looks calm enough, hinting that the rude signal was deliberate,' a body language expert said
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jennifer Lopez was recently captured behaving like a “rebellious teenager” while visiting a McDonald's drive-thru with her husband Ben Affleck.
The 54-year-old singer reportedly flashed her middle finger at the paparazzi, apparently trying to "impress" Affleck.
‘Jennifer has caught or copied’ Ben Affleck’s ‘mood’
Body language expert Judi James told The Mirror, “It's usually Ben looking surly at the paparazzi but it seems Jennifer has caught or copied his mood here, perhaps in a bid to impress him by showing him he's not the only one in the marriage who can look like a rebellious teenager.”
The expert continued, “If her body language had suggested actual anger the finger signal might have looked like a spur-of-the-minute, loss-of-temper mistake.”
“But her facial expression here, with the slightly twisted smile, looks calm enough, hinting that the rude signal was deliberate and maybe part of her normal repertoire,” she added.

Jennifer Lopez ‘needs really good fuel’
Though Lopez was seen eating McDonald's, it has been said that she usually likes 'eating very clean'.
Her trainer Tracy Anderson once told PEOPLE, “I have her eating very clean because she needs really good fuel for all the things that she’s doing.”

“It’s all organic and it’s all very well thought out, with the balance of very high-quality proteins and a lot of nutrient-dense food,” Anderson shared.
The trainer went on to say, “Everything is fresh. There’s nothing processed – just [protein powder] in a shake if we do a protein shake one day.”
“She is a very balanced person, so she’s not going to miss out on Thanksgiving or a holiday with her children. That’s one of the reasons why the workout is important, and it’s so consistent – so we don’t do any kind of extreme dieting,” she added.
Lopez also reportedly added, “Throughout the years I’ve learned the importance of maintaining a healthier […] diet. I still eat some of the foods I love but in moderation. I don’t deprive myself.”
