Problematic Oscar-winner Casey Affleck claims that his big brother, Maine liquor store connoisseur Ben Affleck, will not be playing a probably hungover-looking Batman in a planned DC Comics Universe solo movie. He said this during a radio appearance yesterday, here in Affleck Land – Boston! I’m not sure why Casey didn’t let me know he was in town. He IS my enemy of old and we’re due for a rematch. I’ll explain in the last paragraph. Continue reading
Ben Affleck, his new (?) girlfriend Lindsay Shookus, and the slight paunch that he’s probably hoping will function as his escape hatch from the current Batman franchise were spotted at a liquor store in Maine. This could be problematic for Ben, seeing as he revealed back in March that he had completed a stint in rehab. Ben’s drug of choice appears to be booze. So moseying around a packie probably isn’t doing your sobriety a favor. It’s like me trying to get my diabetes in check and touring the Little Debbie factory. Continue reading
Ben Affleck’s face showed up in a trailer for Justice League at Comic-Con this weekend, and I hope everyone got a good look, because Justice League and Justice League Pt. 2 might be the last times you see Ben as Batman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ben’s secret wish of putting his Batsuit into mothballs might come true sooner than he hoped.
Despite going public with his new lady-friend Lindsay Shookus, Ben Affleck has been having a rough go of things lately. His brother is a sleazeball. He was deemed uninspiring. He had to go to rehab again. His wife Jennifer Garner finally filed for divorce. Nobody wants his Batman script. Evan Rachel Wood told him to grow up.
We’ve had many, many up to the minute updates about Ben Affleck and his new lady Lindsay Shookus. Like how they got together, how they really might have gotten together, how Jennifer Garner feels about the situation (not great!), and how Lindsay is handling being a famous-adjacent person now. But the question remains: how are Ben and Lindsay really doing.
There is an update to add to the ever-growing list of things to know about Ben and Lindsay. UsWeekly says they’re “going strong.” As if there was any alternative? I don’t think anyone would ever be like “Oh, it’s so tragically weak. Like the enamel of a fruit punch drinker. Their relationship is practically covered in zip-ties and duct tape to prevent it from falling apart.”
Several sources have spoken to UsWeekly with some insider details, and I don’t know if their relationship is strong so much as it just sounds like it’s fine?
The two-time Oscar winner has been “casually dating” Shookus since April, says an Affleck insider, “and he’s very happy with her.”
“Lindsay is an incredibly intelligent woman,” says another Affleck pal. “They have really good conversations and just like hanging out with other.”
I don’t know if those sources even had to come out and say it. It’s very obvious that Ben and Lindsay like hanging out with each other. It’s evident in those matching outfits! That shot above was taken Wednesday night after Ben and Lindsay checked out of their hotel in New York City. I would say a relationship is officially worth it if you’re willing to risk missing your scheduled check-out time so you can spend an extra 45 minutes picking out perfectly coordinated cool blue-and-gray ensembles.

Westworld robutt, Evan Rachel Wood, had some unkind words for Ben Affleck on Twitter yesterday. Paper Magazine tweeted a story in which Kevin Smith, at a recent Q&A for an Outfest screening of 1997’s Chasing Amy (via Gay Star News), recounted the time, 20 years ago, when Ben said of his onscreen kiss with co-star Jason Lee “a man kissing another man is the greatest acting challenge an actor can ever face.” Paper magazine said that Kevin said that Ben also said “now, I’m a serious actor.”
