The director-star of Argo was picking up his four-year-old daughter Seraphina from school on March 1 when paparazzi started getting too close, according to TMZ.
"They were really swarming his daughter and yelling at her — yelling at a 4-year-old," a source says of the paparazzi.
"It's terrible... This is a four-year-old we're talking about," the insider continues about Ben's daughter with wife Jennifer Garner. "This is a preschooler on her way to school, not a star outside a nightclub."
Seraphina was getting scared and was "asking for them to stop," the source reveals, so Ben Affleck spoke up.
First, Ben asked them twice to back off, but mere words apparently didn't work. So he put his foot down — so to speak.
"You need to be this far away," Ben reportedly told the paparazzi. He then swung his leg to demonstrate just how close was too close.
He love what a concerned dad Ben is!
