Jennifer Lopez’s recent red carpet look hit a little too close to home for husband Ben Affleck.

On Tuesday, Lopez, 54, bared her famous abs in a Grace Ling backless gown featuring a statement-making metallic breastplate top at Elle’s Women in Hollywood ceremony, where she was honored with the Icon Award.

The designer piece was definitely sexy on the This Is Me... Now singer with its midriff cut-out and dose of underboob.

However, Affleck jokingly told Variety at the event that the futuristic ensemble gave him “PTSD” and “flashbacks” to his Batman suit.

Across his career, Affleck, 51, has played the DC Comics superhero in five different films: Batman v. Superman, Suicide Squad, Justice League, Zack Snyder's Justice League, and The Flash.

Teasing aside, the couple — who tied the knot in July 2022 after reconciling the previous year — looked loved up on the carpet.

It’s not surprising that Affleck had an hilarious take on his wife’s look. While appearing on Live with Kelly and Mark earlier this year, Lopez said that his feedback sometimes throws her off, but she finds humor in his honest opinions.

"He doesn't come to the fittings or anything like that," Lopez explained.  "But, if I'm getting dressed and we're going to a red carpet or some big event I'm like, 'What do you think? This one or this one? Do you like this or do you like this?' Stuff like that."

She added:  "He'll joke with me sometimes and say, 'Where's the rest of the shirt?' And I'm like, 'No, this one doesn't have anything else."

But fashion advice aside, the Grammy-nominated performer says she's never felt more beautiful than when she’s with her man.

“I feel even more relaxed and comfortable, which makes me feel even more beautiful than I have ever felt with someone else," she told Vogue in November, noting that Affleck "wants me to understand my worth and know my value."
