Ben Affleck Got Lindsay All Shook Up

Ben and Jen are over, it’s all about Ben and Lindsay Shookus now. He and the SNL producer are smashing, and they have been for a long, long time.

More than that, he’s unafraid to assert some job benefits from the relationship. There’s still a lot we don’t know about the relationship, but today we know a little bit more.

Page Six ran an inside scoop on Ben and Shookus, and from it we can glean a lot of juicy details. We know that Shookus is enjoying eating lobster dinners with Ben. Always working behind the scenes, we also know that she is enjoying the flash of the paparazzi cameras.

“She’s enjoying it,” a friend of Shookus’ said. “She never wanted to be on camera, but she’s comfortable getting a lot of attention.” I should hope so, she is dating Batfleck after all. She’s wandered into the spotlight of a lot of people.

Page Six also confirms the timeline of the relationship. Shookus and Ben first got together in 2013, two years before Ben and Jen split, and one year before Shookus split with her husband. I think we can assume that even if the affair wasn’t the main reason the two couples ended, it was a contributing factor.

“I can’t believe that a girl from nowhere New York ruined a Hollywood marriage,” a publicist mused, maybe getting a bit judgey that Shookus is from Williamsville, New York. The joke’s on that publicist, Williamsville is lovely in the summer, and she’s not boning a movie star.

Since signing on to SNL, Shookus has been the main talent finder, booking new cast members and hosts. “Lindsay has developed very close relationships with all of [the cast], as well as the hosts,” a source said.

Clearly, she and the guest hosts get on just fine, sometimes to the detriment of their marriages.
