Ben Affleck is single and looking! According to a new report, the Justice League star is on the dating app Raya so he can find romance after his divorce from Jennifer Garner and his breakup from Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus.
“He seems to want a real partner and is not looking to date a celebrity. He is private and is in a good space right now,” a source told Page Six. “He has his kids and is focusing on work, but is ready to be in love again.”
Recently, Affleck was spotted at the Hotel Bel-Air having dinner with a young brunette. The two were seemingly on a first date, as an eyewitness said it “seemed innocent” and there was no PDA even though the two appeared to be “really into each other.”
Another insider claims that Affleck has already given up on Raya, and he shows up often at the Bel-Air hotel for work meetings.
The 47-year-old actor was also spotted out with Steve Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell Jobs earlier this month at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. Even though their dinner lasted almost three hours, sources say it wasn’t a date and the two “have been friends for a long time.”
While Affleck continues to focus on his work and kids while looking for love, his ex-wife Jennifer Garner recently revealed the most romantic day of her life. But, it wasn’t just one day, it was actually three days, as Garner shared on Kristen Bell’s web series Momsplaining that the most romantic days she’s ever experienced was when she went into labor with her three children.
Garner and Bell were discussing motherhood with three new moms, and when one mom who was five months pregnant with her first child expressed her fears about labor, Garner – who shares Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7, with Affleck – gave her views of labor and how “romantic” it is.
Bell strongly disagreed with Garner, saying that she is a better person than her because she was going to tell the new mom: “It’s gonna look like a homicide. Way more blood than you think there should be.”
The Season 4 premiere of Momsplaining is available on EllenTube.
