“Woah, woah, woah,” Affleck said as he pushed the man away from Lopez. The actor placed both hands on the unidentified man’s chest, moving him toward a nearby wall. Fortunately, both private security and the police were present and interceded to ensure that the man was detained.
As the pair set off, Affleck asked Lopez, “Are you okay?” Despite the close call, López seemed unfazed. He continued to smile for the cameras and thanked the airport staff for their help.
