Argo director Ben Affleck has denied kicking the paparazzi yesterday, saying that he was trying to protect his scared daughter from the swarming photogs.
Ben was out with his 4-year old daughter Seraphina yesterday when they encountered a swarm of paparazzi. According to sources close to the Oscar winner, the paps got too close while taking pics and this scared his daughter, who then started crying.
Ben Affleck reportedly told the photogs to back off twice at that point, but when that fell on deaf ears, he said. ‘You need to be this far away…’ before swinging his leg to demonstrate.
He insists he didn’t mean to kick anyone, as he was simply trying to protect his daughter from the aggressive paps.
Blame it on the Argo, bruh!
