Ben Affleck’s called out paparazzi this weekend for acting dangerously outside of the home he shares with Jennifer Lopez, amid the A-listers’ reported marital tensions.

The Oscar winner, 51, was leaving the couple’s Beverly Hills home Sunday when photographers feverishly snapped pictures as Affleck drove his car onto the main road, before backing up and exiting the vehicle to confront them, according to footage obtained by TMZ.

“Don’t flash your light at somebody driving down ... don’t do that. That’s dangerous. You don’t even know if that’s me, you could cause an accident,” Affleck said to one paparazzo, before turning on his heel and heading back toward the car, as more cameras flashed from the other side of the road.

“Stop, man, it’s dangerous what you guys are doing. Do you understand? I can’t see. You’re gonna get somebody hurt doing this s—. Jesus Christ. My daughter’s coming down here. If you flash your lights on her, you’re putting her in danger. You understand that?” he said, referring to 18-year-old Violet Affleck, the eldest of the three children he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

Affleck and the recent high school grad were seen out to lunch earlier in the weekend, during which, he was reportedly spotted without his wedding ring, as Lopez travels in Europe.

“Understand, Ben,” one of the photographers acknowledged as the Gone Girl star, who recently moved out of the home, drove off.

Lopez, 53, was reportedly not at the US$60mil mansion at the time of the incident. The pair moved in last year and recently put the home on the market for “around US$65mil,” insiders told the outlet earlier this month.

The Good Will Hunting star and co-writer confronted paps just days after the fourth season premiere of Kevin Hart’s Peacock talk show, Hart To Heart, during which Affleck reflected on Lopez’s “(expletive) bananas” level of fame, compared to his own.

The Bronx-born pop star, on the other hand, had no problem posing for all the photographers Monday while attending Paris Fashion Week. She was vacationing in Italy last week without Affleck.

Affleck and Lopez, who reportedly are at odds in part over their differing approaches to fame, were engaged in the early 2000s, before moving on with Garner and Marc Anthony, respectively. He and Lopez, who shares teen twins with Anthony, reconciled in 2021 and wed the following year. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
