Ben Affleck is moving on after ending his relationship with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus. The Justice League star was spotted on a hot date this weekend with Playboy model Shauna Sexton. Despite going through a recent breakup, the actor looked happy and healthier than ever with his new love.
Affleck and Sexton were spotted at a popular restaurant in Malibu over the weekend called Nobu. The model, who was crowned Miss May 2018 for Playboy, rocked a light colored dress and dark heels for the occasion. Affleck was later seen at his new house in Los Angeles working with a painter.

The date with Sexton comes after Affleck’s apparent split with Shookus. The two dated for a little over a year following his divorce with Jennifer Garner. Affleck has not commented on the date with the Playboy model, but he did appear happy and healthy during the outing.
Affleck is busy filming a new project and was spotted grabbing a bite to eat at a Jack N The Box after the hot date. Sexton did not eat lunch with Affleck, who stayed in his vehicle the entire time.
Affleck and Shookus have not confirmed or denied their split. Inside sources, however, say that the actor’s outing with Sexton “looked like maybe a first date” and that he appeared interested in her. Apart from Affleck’s apparent date, there are other clues that he and Shookus have called it quits.
For starters, the SNL producer did not attend Affleck’s 46th birthday bash. The party was held the night before Affleck was spotted on the date with Sexton. Even more interesting, Shookus got rid of her Instagram account last week. To be fair, Shookus has not been active on the site for weeks and now her profile is completely gone. Shookus and Affleck’s last public outing was back in July. The pair was spotted in Puerto Rico while Affleck was working on his latest project, The Last Thing He Wanted.
At the time, sources claimed that Affleck and Shookus were doing great. We don’t know for sure if the two are separated, but it’s pretty clear that Affleck is moving on.
Affleck and Garner announced their divorce back in 2015. The two did not finalize their split, however, until 2017. Since breaking up with Garner, Ben Affleck has been working hard on keeping his sobriety and living a healthier life.
