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.

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:

He doesn't need a body guard. The paparazzi should show some common respect. Every day there are photos of Ben and Jen taking their kids out and about. They should be able to live their lives in peace. WE collectively, are a bunch of nosy intruders. Leave the kids alone.

Ghastly man, he is frightening his daughter more than the paps with his aggression. He was never seen with his daughters before and then all of a sudden everyday before oscar time. Horrible actor and narrow perpective director

All the pig papprazzi (yes...even the ones who work for TMZ) are sad, pathetic losers who need to back the fu*k off.

This jerk has a hair trigger temper. How is it that his wife is photographed on a daily basis at close range with all three of her children, and there is always a smile on her face, and her children are equally as happy and pleasant? Affleck needs major sedation and five bodyguards. Jennifer and the children are just fine with the paparazzi and without bodyguards.

He should have kicked them in the balls! Those parasites will now force him to get body guards to keep them at a safe distance.

Uh oh i am screwed    

I think there ought to be a law that photags are not allowed to come with in 50/100 feet of celebs if they are with their kids.

Ben is a nice guy and it sounds like the paps were trying to aggrevate him on purpose.

I believe Ben on this one. The paps, especially X17, stalk this family for no good reason. I'm glad they are good parents, but I could give two ****s about seeing them go to the grocery store, get coffee, or if we're really lucky, pick up their mail.

You say "(none of whom work for TMZ)" as if this somehow absolves you from being vultures the other 364 days of the year.

This is a 4 year old CHILD. She was SCARED. I would have done more than fling my foot out to show distance. That foot would have wound up up somebody's a--.

I would think his kid would scream in terror more if she saw daddy without his hair plugs.

Speaking of the paparazzi and privacy … it’s almost to the point where everyone is wearing a pseudo ‘wire’ now. I recently viewed footage from a snowmobile head cam with audio. It was over an hour long and the quality was comparable to HD TV. Can you imagine what things will be like once the ‘Google Glasses’ and other futuristic technologies are available and affordable to the masses?

Good for Affleck. The paparazzi are just lowlife s***bags who can't get real jobs. The best stories you read on-line is when a member of the paparazzi who gets killed hounding someone. Keep those stories coming.
