Whenever we make a meme out of a , we obviously can't help but wonder if they're aware of it. Are they sitting at home refreshing the Reddit homepage every five seconds, anxiously keeping track of all the iterations applied to that one unflattering picture of their face, or are they living a quiet life, blissfully unaware of the online storm that's turned them into an icon beyond their control?

Turns out most of them have plenty of time to check the internet in between two scenes, and is no exception. He's so well aware of the Sad Affleck meme, actually, that he's promised himself to try to avoid the Resting Sad Face during interviews. Discussing on BBC Radio 1, he revealed he learned a lot from the press tour.

Asked what he learned working on a production the size of Batman v Superman, the first thing that Affleck mentions is that Sad Affleck meme that had been doing the rounds every since he sat with a very tired face next to his co-star Henry Cavill:

"It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don't say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it, that's one thing I learned."

What a shame, Affleck. We live for these moments.

The actor then goes on to reveal that he owns several pieces from the movie set, namely a replica of the suit he wore during shooting... and a Batarang, which is clearly the kind of collectible you'd want to bring back home from work — let's be honest, we'd all act like the Flash in the first Justice League trailer if we ever got to touch a Batarang.
