The 49-year-old actor physically restrained a fan that was eager to get a selfie with Lopez, according to Page Six.

While at the airport leaving Venice after the famous film festival, Affleck had to think fast when he had to block a fan who got super close while trying to take pictures of the rekindled couple. The incident began when Affleck first pushed the man away from his girlfriend. Suddenly, the bodyguard had to jump in, where he grabbed the fan’s wrists and pushed him away from the Hollywood couple.

Once things settled down, both Lopez and Affleck could walk through the airport, where they continued to hold hands. They both also avoided eye contact with anyone and kept their heads low.

The couple stepped out for the premiere of Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel,” which Affleck wrote with longtime friend Matt Damon. They both star in the drama that will premiere in theaters on October 15.

Lopez stunned in a white, body-hugging, floor-length gown with a thigh-high slit. The Georges Hobeika dress was blinged out in diamonds that matched her clutch and silver Jimmy Choo heels. For Affleck, he looked dapper in a sharp, black tuxedo.

The couple looked head-over-heels in love as they held hands and walked the carpet together. They posed for photos on a red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of their movie, “Gigli,” in July 2003.

Affleck and Lopez were engaged in 2002 and later co-starred in films like “Jersey Girl” and “Gigli.” After postponing their 2003 wedding, they officially broke up in 2004.
