Ben Affleck dating Lindsay Shookus

After a long, drawn out divorce from his wife of 10 years, Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck is dating once again. The A-lister is rumored to be in a relationship with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus.

“They are spending time together in L.A. Lindsay is staying at Ben’s new house,” a source told People. “They had dinner at Giorgio Baldi last night. They arrived in a limo. They looked happy. They had a quick dinner and then returned to Ben’s house.”

The couple were also recently spotted together in London where Ben was filming Justice League. Sources told Us that Lindsey spent four nights with him.

Shookus has been at SNL since 2002 and now oversees casting for the long-running show. The Hollywood Reporter recently named Lindsey as one of their “Up-and-Coming Execs 35 and Under.”

Here is a snippet from her interview:

MY BIG BREAK “When I started as an assistant at SNL, I got my eyes on Kristen Wiig and was able to bring her for an audition for Lorne Michaels and the other producers. Turns out, Kristen Wiig can give you some street cred early on.”

ACTOR I’D CAST TO PLAY ME IN MY BIOPIC “Come on! You can’t ask someone who works with 24 comedy writers every day to answer that question seriously. Do you think Julie Andrews is available?”

THING PEOPLE PROBABLY DON’T KNOW ABOUT ME “I once played Jennifer Lopez’s werewolf body double in a sketch. I don’t think anyone was shocked when the sketch got cut after dress rehearsal.”

MY WAKE-UP TIME “My 2-year-old has become my alarm, so on a good day, 7:30 a.m. or 8 a.m. My alarm sounds something like, ‘MAMA, where ARE yooooou?’ “

Like Ben, Lindsey was previously married and divorced and has one daughter.

After the news broke earlier today that Ben was in a relationship with Lindsay, multiple sources came forward to reveal the couple have actually been romantically linked for several years and were even together when they were both married– to other people! According to sources, Ben and Lindsay began hooking up back in 2013.

Even though he’s moved on, Ben and his ex Jennifer Garner are co-parenting like champs. They are often seen together with their children taking family trips and attending church. Most recently, Ben and Jen were spotted together with their children for the 4th of July.
