Back in April, we learned that Ben Affleck would no longer be photographed in public drinking iced coffees with his on-again/off-again girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. Ben might be taking some much-needed me time, but apparently Lindsay is ready to hop back on the horse. And no, that’s not a cheap joke about Jon Hamm being hung like one. Okay, fine, maybe a little.
Us Weekly says that 39-year-old Lindsay and 48-year-old Jon were seen together last night at the opening of the Broadway show Derren Brown: Secret. Jon and Lindsay most likely met at SNL. She works there as a producer, and Jon has appeared on the show many times. They also allegedly went on a few dates back in the day. However, Jon’s rep has denied they ever dated, and that they’re just friends. Jon and his good friend Lindsay were recently seen at a Broadway show together, and it sounds like they might be more than friends right now.
Jon reportedly stopped to take pictures on the way in, but not with Lindsay, who was reportedly already inside. The source says that Jon and Lindsay sat next to each other, and “didn’t hide anything.” That might sound as though Jon was wearing a shirt that read, “OUR COUPLE NAME IS HAMMUS,” but the source claims that Jon and Lindsay didn’t really show any PDA. Although, there was some “flirtatious banter” before, after, and during intermission. Come on, that source needs to take better notes. Not one hint about what that flirtatious banter entailed? Until I get confirmation otherwise, I want to believe Jon leaned over during intermission and said, “I love Broadway. My favorite show is Cats. I guess you could say I’m a huge fan of pussy. No, but seriously, you’re invited to a special performance of The King and I starring me and my junk. Location? Get-me-off Broadway.”
Regardless of what flirty banter was said, the source says that Lindsay looked like she was always smiling and seemed to be enjoying herself. At intermission, Jon bought Lindsay a water from the concession, who reportedly remained in her seat. The source said she looked distracted by her phone.
We’ll have to see if this goes anywhere further. A source says that she and Jon really are “just friends” and have been for over a decade. It’s a mystery, but there might be some clues courtesy of Jon Hamm. Here he is at the opening night of Derren Brown: Secret. He sort of looks like he spent the day on the couch, searching Amazon.com for a new iPhone case, before realizing he had a show to go to. Not exactly a date look. Although maybe he figured he’s already a step above Lindsay’s last boyfriend if he doesn’t show up smelling like curly fries and cheeseburgers.
