Don’t mess with JLo in Ben Affleck’s presence!
When a fan got too close to Jennifer Lopez as the couple was leaving Italy at Venice’s Marco Polo Airport on Saturday, the movie star stepped in.
Affleck, 49, and Lopez, 52, are seen being escorted through the airport by security when a bearded man in a t-shirt and cargo shorts approaches the “Jenny From the Block” singer and attempts to take a selfie with her.
“Woah, woah, woah,” Affleck exclaimed, pushing the man away from Lopez. The actor moved the unidentified man towards a nearby wall with both hands on his chest. Fortunately, both private security and police were present and intervened to ensure the man was apprehended.
As the two drove away, Affleck asked Lopez, “Are you okay?” Lopez appeared unfazed despite the close call. She kept smiling for the cameras and thanked the airport staff for their assistance.
The incident occurred the day after Ben and JLo made their first official red carpet appearance since rekindling their romance in April.
The pair, who were 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!
