That’s probably a good thing. Supposedly, he was sneaking drinks at an Emmys party. And I think we all remember where he popped up this summer. US Weekly sez that ambivalent Batman portrayer Ben Affleck visits an outpatient treatment center to deal with his alcoholism.
I’m not going to say that’s the face of someone who knows their way around a bottle. No really, I’m not going to, because that’s what my face looks like after a two Egg McMuffin breakfast. But in Ben Affleck’s case, at least according to InTouch, that’s the face of a dude who might not be sober at the moment.
Oh, what a magical moment; the night a famous couple takes the next big step in their relationship. In Ben Affleck and and Lindsay Shookus’ case, that would mean going from getting papped while jewelry shopping to joining each other in a giant venue filled with people whispering about seeing them in the wild for the first time. “Holy shit, Ben Affleck is here? Oh yeah, he’s dating what’s her name…Snooki-something.” Truly one for the scrapbook.
Ben Affleck may not be playing Batman anymore, but that doesn’t mean he’s not open to performing exciting stunts in front the cameras. And because every good superhero needs a sidekick, he was joined by his current favorite partner in publicity Lindsay Shookus. Maybe it’s the angle, but they’re kind of giving me 10-years-later Brittany Pierce from Glee if she left Santana for a guy who flips Pontiac Sunfires on Kijiji.
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
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.
