Ben Affleck Pushes Man at Italian Airport for Trying to Get a Photo of Girlfriend Jennifer Lopez

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were recently in Venice, Italy, but they didn't leave the country without first finding themselves at close range with an overly eager fan.

It has been reported that the couple was at the airport on the way to catch their flight when a bearded man came out of nowhere and aggressively tried to take a picture with them.

Affleck was quick to react and was able to keep the man at a safe distance from Lopez, who just stood there watching as her boyfriend pushed the amateur paparazzi away.

The security team accompanying the power couple immediately intervened putting some distance between the man, whose identity is yet to be revealed, and the stars.

The lovebirds even have the approval of Affleck's best friend Matt Damon.

A BLAST FROM THE PAST

The incident took place just one day after Affleck and Lopez made their first major red carpet debut in over 15 years at the 2021 Venice Film Festival.

The last time they were spotted together at such an event was all the way back in 2003, when they attended the premiere of "Gigli," the film in which they portrayed the roles of Larry and Ricki.

DRESSED TO IMPRESS

Affleck and Lopez drew a lot of attention to themselves at the ceremony, with the actor looking particularly dapper in a black Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo and a pair of shoes by Christian Louboutin.

As for the 52-year-old singer, she went for a white mermaid-style gown with a deep V-neckline designed by Georges Hobeika, complementing the look with a Cartier bracelet and Jimmy Choo heels.

The couple seems to be very much in love and it has been reported  they are "the loves of each other's lives." The lovebirds even have the approval of Affleck's best friend Matt Damon.

According to the "Good Will Hunting" star, Affleck is the best and deserves every happiness in the world, adding that he is "glad for both of them."

A TRIBUTE TO HEATH LEDGER

Damon, who has been friends with Affleck for a very long time, recently shared that he and his wife Luciana have a tattoo designed by none other than Heath Ledger.

The 50-year-old said that he stumbled upon the doodle while getting his first tattoo back in 2013 and learned that it was made by the late star.

Damon knew that he had to get that design on him and proudly walked out of the study with the tattoo on his right arm, along with the name "Lucy" in honor of his wife.
