Ben Affleck learned the hard way not to take long, pensive-looking pauses in interviews.

The Live by Night star sat down with BBC Radio 1 recently, where he finally confirmed that he's seen that heartbreakingly funny meme of himself seated next to Batman V. Superman co-star, Henry Cavill, while appearing despondent as a sad melody plays.

"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," the 44-year-old actor joked was the main thing he learned working on the superhero movie. "That's one thing I learned."

Watch Ben Affleck's reaction, as well as the instant-classic meme that started it all, in the video below.

Cheer up, Ben!

In all seriousness, the actor did continue on to say that playing Batman was a real eye-opener for him.

"I had not made a movie of that scale," Affleck revealed. "The last big blockbuster movie I made, was Armageddon, which was in 1997."

"The technology had really changed how those movies are being made, and it was fascinating," he added.

Live by Night is in theaters now.
