Ben Affleck

I Didn't Kick the Paps ...

They Were Scaring My Kid!

3/2/2013 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0302-ben-affleck-x17Ben Affleck didn't kick anyone yesterday and was merely trying to get the paparazzi to back off ... because they were scaring his daughter ... this according to sources close to the Oscar winner.

Ben was holding 4-year-old Seraphina yesterday when they encountered a large mass of paps. According to our sources, the photogs got too close for comfort and little Seraphina started crying because she was afraid. 

According to our sources, Ben asked the paps (none of whom work for TMZ) twice to back off and when that didn't work ... he said "You need to be this far away" and swung his leg to demonstrate. 

Our source says Ben never had any intention of kicking anyone and he was merely trying to protect his daughter from the paps ... who he feels have been getting more and more aggressive.

He should have just said "Argo f**k yourself" ... but they probably haven't seen the movie.

I've said it before, children should not be photo'd by the paps without permission of the parent/nanny! Or, at least take the pic from much further away. Of course she was scared ... if they were THAT close who wouldn't be? Good job Ben defending your prescious little girl, Ben!

I'm so sick of this guy. Take your regular guy act and go home. You think your entitled to get respect from normal people in public? I don't think so.

Maybe those particular guys didn't work for TMZ, but TMZ's photographers WOULD get too close. You A-holes should be ashamed of yourselves for getting so close to kids.

"None of whom worked for TMZ.' Uh, sort of not true. I'm sure TMZ paid someone to use the photo. Even if a TMZ photog did take the pic, they would sell it to other sites ... they do it all the time with their articles.

Affleck was on his best behavior before the awards. I knew he would return to his nasty self, and he sure has - less than a week after the Oscars. He wants press and adulation on his terms.

Hi,
Recently, our website was featured in some major news networks. After helping
thousands of people get at home survey jobs from big companies worldwide, the media
finally caught on.

Big companies are willing to pay people just like you for your opinion
on their products and services. Usually, this is just in the form of a survey
you fill out online... takes about 5-10 minutes and can pay up to $35.

Click Here To Get Started Now! http://scfitcoach.forsurveys.hop.clickbank.net

That's not bad for 5-10 minutes of work right? Especially if you are doing
10 surveys a day!

Because of this news story, we have seen thousands of new members signing up... so many people that we almost cannot even handle the demand.

We are on the verge of not accepting any new members for awhile. So, if
you are interested, you need to join RIGHT now because we will not be
accepting any new members within a few days until the demand dies down.

Don't delay, click the link below to start right away:

This coming from a guy who craves attention so bad he shaves his beard in the bathroom of a restaurant instead of waiting to do it when he his home so he gets maximum exposure for it. The next day the lame press acted like it was breaking news, really, a middle aged man shaves his beard, that is news?

Ive said it before and I'll say it again, it should be illegal for the stalkerazzi to photograph someones child. When a famous person is with their child or children, leave them alone and dont take pictures. Also, why does tmz always make a point to say "it wasnt one of our photogs"? As if we actually believe that their employees have morals and would never do something like this. We dont believe you.
