Ben Affleck Goes Public with His New Relationship
Ben Affleck is being seen a lot more in public with his new girlfriend, Saturday Night Producer, Lindsay Shookus.
The couple spent a few days in Maine after he wrapped The Justice League, which filmed in London.
“He really enjoys spending time with Lindsay,” a source told E! News. “They went to Maine together for a quick weekend with her family and friends.”
The couple was spotted by a local at a Tony’s Foodland grocery store. She saw Affleck in the parking lot and asked for a photo. According to the local, he was “nothing short of a gentleman and super sweet.”
Another source told E! News that the couple has “a few more small trips planned in the coming weeks and will be meeting up all over the place.” They added that Affleck is “really happy” with Shookus and really enjoys spending time with her. “The fact that they have gone public with their relationship and can do normal things is a huge relief, they are enjoying hanging out and doing everyday things like going to get coffee or out to dinner. He thinks she is very witty and charming and loves her company.”
The insider also said that Ben “has felt very alone for a long time,” and that “having someone and a new relationship is exciting.”
It seems that Shookus is just as smitten as her famous boyfriend. “They are really into each other and miss each other like crazy after a few days. Since they both have kids and work, it makes it a little bit challenging. But things are going very well between them, and they won’t let more than a few days pass without meeting up again.”
If you’re wondering about Garner, another source claims that “Ben and Jen are still working hard at making this work for the kids and each other. This summer they will spend time all together as well a separately with the kids.”
