Lately, Ben Affleck is probably feeling freer than you ladies feel when you take your bras off at the end of the day. This would be ever since he was able to unyoke HIS boobies from HIS bra aka not having to play florid movie Batman anymore. Ben (who’s also officially divorced and post-rehab) is seemingly feeling so good that he’s even ringing up the woman he dated before shit went downhill for him. The Daily Mail reports that Ben and his Saturday Night Live producer ex-gf Lindsay Shookus were spotted on a Starbucks run together in L.A. yesterday, and Metro reports that they had dinner together last night (pics above). And somewhere, a Playboy model’s single tear has sadly alighted on one surgically augmented breast.
Ben waited in the car and chatted happily on his phone as Lindsay returned with their iced machiattos or whatever dumbass overpriced coffee rich people drink on Saturday.
Both of them appeared to be in cheerful moods – Lindsay grinned as she headed to the car, and Ben could be seen beaming as he chatted on the phone inside.
He was probably on a conference call with George Clooney and Val Kilmer joking about how much playing an unpopular Batman sucks. Affleck and Shookus (which sounds like a highway billboard law firm) were then spotted at L.A.’s Katsuya restaurant last night. It’s no Jack-in-the-Box but it’ll do for a night out.
Ben, 46, was then seen walking through the restaurant with the Saturday Night Live producer and, after no doubt enjoying a good catch-up over dinner, got into the same car together before leaving the swanky restaurant.
Ben and Lindsay broke up last summer supposedly due to distance. It also may have had something to do with Ben’s repeatedly being spotted with the Playboy model with the most Playboy model name ever – Shauna Sexton. Ben and Lindsay were spotted together earlier this month too.
Ever since the Sad Ben Affleck On Hearing Bad Reviews meme started, it’s been obvious that playing Batman was the bane (no comic book geek pun intended) of his existence. You might think it’s all fun make-believe with an enormous check but it’s also spending hours in a rubber suit that probably doesn’t have a fly to piss out of and being continually and justifiably upstaged by Wonder Woman. That must have sucked.
