Ben Affleck, who battled the glare of paparazzi during his first relationship with Jennifer Lopez, struggled with the number of snappers trailing them on their honeymoon, a source tells Page Six.

“Ben was a little freaked out in Paris,” says the source. “This was a whole new level.” Adding, “an almost Princess-Diana level.”

Back in 2002 the photogenic couple faced unprecedented media attention. They even had to postpone their first planned wedding in 2003 after they were forced to go so far as to consider having “decoy brides” on their doomed big day.

In a statement released the day before the original nuptials, they said, “Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date.” (And, of course, they never rescheduled that particular wedding.)

“Ben is used to the flashing lights,” says the source. “But he felt that the honeymoon was a tsunami. Jen’s made out of steel and knows it comes with the territory [but] he still gets pissed off.” 

While Lopez, 53, looks picture-perfect in every frame shots, Affleck always seems to be made for memes.

There was the famous shot of him looking glum while looking out to sea, another well-worn image of him smoking a cigarette with his eyes closed in apparent despiar and Page Six declared one picture in which he struggles to balance iced coffees, a box of munchkins and his mail, the perfect metaphor for the overwhelming events of 2020.

True to form, a shot of Affleck, 49, on the recent trip on a Seine River cruise with Lopez and their respective children, shows him at the front of the boat, asleep, with his mouth open.

He was also photographed getting teary-eyed at La Girafe, on the Place du Trocadéro in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Paps also caught the couple locking lips at Le Matignon restaurant, smooching near the Elysée Palace and caught just about every other moment of the trip.

Affleck is back in Los Angeles following the honeymoon, while Lopez has been vacationing in Italy following her performance at the LuisaViaRoma x Unicef Capri Gala.
