Ben Affleck, who played Batman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League franchise, had a chance to be a hero once again when a fan attacked Jennifer Lopez in Italy. Namely, the Hollywood actor had to physically restrain a man who wanted a too much to take a selfie with Lopez while the couple was returning from the Venice film festival over the weekend.
The incident happened at the airport. And before the fan attacked Jeniffer Lopez, he first managed to get past the couple’s security that formed a protective circle around the celebrities.
Footage of the Fan Attacking Jennifer Lopez
Images of the incident show a bearded man, without a protective mask, approaching the famous couple as they were making their way through the airport. He quickly succeeded in breaching their personal space, waving his camera about and shouting.
Reacting instantly, Affleck stopped the fan and pushed him – not too roughly, with both hands and kept him at a distance. Lopez, clearly shocked and surprized watched the situation unfolding in front of her.
Luckily, the situation did not escalate further since the famous couple’s bodyguards stepped in. The celebrities’ bodyguards restrained the fan, then grabbing him by the wrists escorted him a safe distance away.
Interestingly enough, this is not the fist time a fan attacked Jennifer Lopez. In 2018, the pop star ran into trouble when fans rushed around her in New York. During that incident, one fan, seeking an autograph actually struck Jennifer Lopez’s mother, Guadalupe Rodriguez, on the head.
