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. Jennifer Garner happens to know Shookus, too. Jen made a surprise appearance in the opening monologue of that show. It's memorable because Ben & Jen "joked" about their marriage taking a lot of hard work.
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.”
