Is Jon Hamm Dating Ben Affleck’s Ex, Lindsay Shookus?
Rumors are swirling about actor Jon Hamm, 48, and “Saturday Night Live” producer Lindsay Shookus, 39!
On Sunday, Hamm and Shookus were seen enjoying each other's company at the opening night of Broadway show “Derren Brown: Secret.”
An eyewitness told Us Weekly, “The two sat next to each other and Jon was right next to the aisle. They weren't hiding anything! Lindsay and Jon didn't show much PDA, but there was definitely some flirtatious banter. Lindsay turned her head to talk to Jon before the show, during intermission and after the show. She was always smiling and looked like she was enjoying her conversations with Jon.”
When the show went to intermission, Jon brought a bottle of water for Lindsey, who “seemed to be a bit distracted” by her phone at times, but “made sure to give Jon attention.”
Another source told People magazine, "It very much felt like they were on a date. When they were talking to one another, they locked eyes and were smiling the whole time.”
They did spend time together after the show ended, but left separately.
A source close to Shookus insisted that they are “just friends,” adding, “They have been for over a decade.”
It wasn't the first time that Jon and Lindsay have been spotted together. Before her relationship with Ben Affleck, they were seen at a Kanye West concert at Madison Square Garden in September 2016.
In 2017, Hamm's rep shut down dating rumors, telling Page Six that they “have not dated. They are not friends; they are acquaintances.”
Hamm has hosted “SNL” three times and has appeared as a guest six times.
Earlier this year, news broke that Shookus and Affleck called it quits for the second time. A source told People magazine, “She has a kid and an ex-husband and a job in New York and Ben has his family and a job in L.A. and while they love and respect each other they just realized it wasn't going to work. They really gave it another solid try… They will always have love for each other.”
