Lindsay Shookus’ SNL co-stars don’t think her new boyfriend Ben Affleck is funny! This weekend when they attended the Emmys together, the new couple managed to turn a few heads, but despite the many people who were happy to see the power couple, the producer’s SNL buddies were not impressed by Affleck.
As fans may be aware, Shookus has been showing off her new love lately, but that does not mean he has been accepted into her inner circle of friends.
According to a source, The Saturday Night Live stars ‘are a tight bunch and it takes a long time for them to welcome a new person in. They’ve all known each other for years and admire talent and comedic skills above fame.’
That being said, despite Ben’s struggle to enter her group of friends, they are not too sure if he would fit in as he is famous but not funny!
Sadly enough, it looks like no one has informed him about it yet as Affleck tried to show off how smart and funny he was by cracking jokes the entire night at the event.
The insider thinks he was trying too hard, and that needs to relax and be himself for a change.
In addition, he also needs to take a step back and not make this about him.
The SNL squad really cares for Lindsay, but they think she can do better!
Embarrassingly enough for the famous actor, by the end of the night, they were laughing at him and not with him.
