Ben Affleck has apparently moved on from his 22-year-old Playboy model ex-girlfriend Shauna Sexton less than a month after their split. According to a new report, Affleck is now smitten with Janina Gavankar, a close friend of Meghan Markle who is also Affleck’s co-star in his upcoming movie Torrance.
“Janina isn’t just sexy, she’s a good actress, no-nonsense and a hard worker — all qualities that Ben is attracted to,” a source told In Touch Weekly. “She’s also a singer and performer and reminds him of [his former fiancée] Jennifer Lopez.”
Affleck and Gavankar have apparently been getting close on set. In the movie, Gavankar plays Affleck’s ex-wife, but in real life, they are feeling the love. Sources say there is definitely chemistry between them, and Affleck isn’t opposed to on-set romance.
The Gone Girl star met his two most famous exes on the sets of movies. The 46-year-old started dating Lopez while the two were filming the infamous Gigli, and Affleck met Jennifer Garner on the set of Pearl Harbor before falling in love with her on the set of Daredevil.
As for Gavankar, the former star of True Blood, we don’t know about any past romances on set, but we do know a little about her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex. Gavankar and Markle go way back and have been friends for over 15 years.
The royal mom-to-be has said that she met Gavankar when they were both aspiring actors who were trying to build their careers in Hollywood. Gavankar was a guest at Markle’s wedding in May, and she called the event a “powerful day of love and union.”
Insiders say that the 37-year-old Gavankar is not in a committed relationship right now, so it is possible that she is dating Affleck because he is “definitely interested.”
While Affleck has moved on, Sexton has been busy posting racy photos of herself on Instagram. Last Monday, the former veterinary technician shared a pic of herself apparently stepping out of the shower. Sexton had a towel wrapped around her head, but she was in full makeup and wearing nothing but a thong while striking a cheeky pose.
She covered her chest with her arm, but showed off her backside while wearing the skimpiest of undergarments.
Sexton and Affleck dated briefly while the actor was in rehab. Cameras spotted the two hanging out together two separate times before he headed off to a Malibu treatment center. They also went on vacation together in Montana after he finished his rehab but split just a few days after the trip.
An insider downplayed the breakup, saying Ben Affleck and Sexton were just casual and there was nothing to split from.
