Argo director and star Ben Affleck played a real life superhero on Friday when he and his daughter, 4-year-old daughter Seraphina, were approached by a throng of paparazzi outside of his little girl’s school.

A source told Us Weekly that the paps were “all over” Ben and Seraphina. “She [Seraphina] was asking for them to stop,” said the source, but they were relentless. “They were really swarming his daughter and yelling at her — yelling at a 4-year-old.”

When Ben tried to pick up his freaked out toddler and use his leg to show how much personal space they needed, photographers just ignored his request.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time that celebrity spawn has been chased down by the paparazzi. Halle Berry went totally ballistic on a photographer back in May when she discovered him waiting outside of her daughter Nahla’s preschool. The actress was caught on video letting the guy have it, screaming, “You get a life, get an honorable life. You’re a piece of ****.”

Maybe not the best choice of words for the preschool pickup line, but we can’t blame a mama bear — or papa bear! — for wanting to protect his or her cub.
