BEN AFFLECK RESCUES HIS DAMSEL IN DISTRESS

The Batman actor flexed his muscles this weekend after fighting off a crazy fan who got too close to his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.

But Ben Affleck was ready and prepared. “Woah, woah, woah,” he could be heard saying as he fought the attacker off.

The man was later restrained by security but it was Ben’s quick reaction that saved the day.

After securing his lady love’s safety, he turned to her, asking: “Are you ok?”.

BEN & JEN PACK ON THE PDA

The incident comes a day after Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez made their first official red carpet debut together since rekindling their romance.

Jennifer was showing her support to the Hollywood hunk whose new film The Last Duel made it’s premiere at the Venice Film Festival last week.

The couple – who called time on their romance in 2004 and reunited in May 2021 – had the crown swooning with their cute acts of PDA.
