Ben Affleck was pictured confronting a fan who became overly physical in his attempts to take a photo with Jennifer Lopez.

The incident reportedly occurred on Saturday as the newly public couple walked through Marco Polo Airport in Venice, Italy.

A man appeared to swoop in on the pair as they passed by, appearing to notice a brief gap in their security.

He quickly attempted to raise his phone to steal a selfi with a visibly alarmed Lopez, but Affleck didn’t hesitate to place a hand on the man’s chest to push him away.

One of the couple’s bodyguards quickly intervened to physically restrain the man as Affleck led Lopez away, hand-in-hand.

The couple were in Italy to attend the annual Venice Film Festival, where Affleck’s new feature, ‘The Last Duel‘, was making its debut. Affleck co-wrote the new film with his long-time friend, Matt Damon.

The pair also star in the feature, directed by Ridley Scott, alongside Adam Driver and Jodie Comer.
