Ben Affleck has a new girlfriend. He took her out last night for a romantic dinner date. The Los Angeles paparazzi caught the couple leaving the restaurant. Her name is Lindsay Shookus. She’s been a producer at Saturday Night Live for 15 years.
They would’ve met back in 2013 when Ben hosted SNL's season finale. Ben and his 36-year-old girlfriend are in the “early stages” of the relationship. Just last month, they caught a play in London’s West End. Ben flew Lindsay to Europe for a summer vacation. A source told E! News (quote) “It's more than a summer fling. They’re having fun and care for each other.”
Ben's divorce from Jennifer Garner hasn't been finalized. Turns out Lindsay is still married, too. She and her husband met when both worked behind the camera at SNL. He’s still at 30 Rock, writing for Seth Meyers at Late Night.
