Ben Affleck is apparently a protective boyfriend. He was caught restraining an intrusive fan looking to take a selfie with him and his Hollywood star girlfriend Jennifer Lopez as they made their way out of Venice.
The actor was photographed physically pushing the fan away from his girlfriend as the maskless fan was aggressively intruding on their space at an airport.
The 49-year-old actor first put his hands on the man's chest to keep him away, while the singer stepped back to avoid getting involved in the unwelcome interaction from the other man.
Shortly after the incident, their security guards interfered and moved the fan away from the power couple. Once security handled the situation, they continued to walk into the airport, keeping their heads down to avoid other overeager encounters.
This comes after the duo made headlines for their rekindled relationship while on a whirlwind trip overseas together. The pair also made their red carpet debut at the Venice Film Festival yesterday, marking their first official public appearance together since they broke up nearly two decades ago.

The audience went wild as they screamed and shouted for the couple after witnessing the 52-year-old "On The Floor" singer come out of her ride to join boyfriend, Ben, on the red carpet for the premiere of his movie, The Last Duel.
Both looked stunning. Ben wore a classic black and white tuxedo and Jennifer donned a daring Georges Hobeika white couture gown embellished with a string of Swarovski crystal and Cartier diamonds.
While the relationship between the two may have just been renewed in Montana in May, the duo has had a long history together. The pop star and Hollywood golden boy met on set while filming their movie Gigli. Later that year, the pair were seen kissing and cuddling at the singer's surprise birthday party before announcing their engagement about four months later.
The relationship only lasted for two years as they announced their separation in 2004.
Ben later married Jennifer Garner. They share 3 children together. The "Jenny From The Block" superstar went on to date Marc Anthony and Alex Rodriguez.
Nearly two decades later, faith has brought the two together again as they reunited earlier this year.
