Meanwhile, rumors are swirling that Affleck is once again dating Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, while Garner is in a serious relationship with businessman John Miller.
According to Radar Online, Affleck and Shookus are already thinking about moving in together after reconnecting a few weeks ago. But considering he lives in Los Angeles and she lives and works in New York, it’s not quite clear how that would work out.
The couple has had problems with distance in the past, but sources say that Shookus is willing to split her time between the two coasts.
Garner and Miller have been together for almost a year, but they have kept their romance extremely private. In a surprising twist, insiders say that Miller and Affleck have become fast friends.
“Jen introduced John to Ben because he’ll obviously be around their kids, so it was the right thing to do,” reveals a source. “No one was more surprised than her when Ben and John immediately clicked.”

Affleck reportedly told Miller that he would be there if he needs any advice about “dating in the spotlight.” The source says that Miller has taken Affleck up on his offer, and the two men text every once in a while.
As for Ben Affleck and Shookus, insiders say that the Gone Girl star has told friends that he made a big mistake when he let her go. And, now that he is sober and she has given him a second chance, he won’t let her slip away again.
