Don’t mess with JLo in front of Ben Affleck!
The movie star stepped in when a fan got too close to Jennifer Lopez as the couple were leaving Italy at Venice Marco Polo Airport on Saturday.
Affleck, 49, and Lopez, 52, are seen being escorted to the airport by security when a bearded man in a T-shirt and cargo shorts approaches the “Jenny From the Block” singer and tries to take a selfie with him.
“Wow, whoa, whoa,” Affleck cried, pushing the man away from Lopez. The actor moved the unidentified man with both hands on his chest towards a nearby wall. Fortunately, both private security and police were present and intervened to ensure the man was caught.
As the two walk away, Affleck asks Lopez, “Are you okay?” asked. Lopez looked unimpressed despite the close call. He continued to smile for the cameras and thanked the airport staff for their help.
The incident comes one day after Ben and JLo made their first official red carpet appearance since rekindling their romance in April.
The duo, who got engaged 19 years ago, walked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of Ben’s new movie “The Last Duel.” Long live Bennifer 2.0!
