Ben Affleck is ready to start anew three months after officially filing for divorce from Jennifer Garner.
The actor is reportedly dating “Saturday Night Live” producer Lindsay Shookus. Sources told E! Online the relationship is “in the early stages” and hasn’t yet gotten serious.
“It’s more than a summer fling,” the anonymous source said. “They are having fun and care for each other. It’s early and they are taking it slow.”
According to the insider, Affleck and Shookus recently spent time together in London, where the father of three was working.

Affleck and Garner filed for divorce in April, nearly two years after they announced their separation. Insiders close to the couple confirmed news of their official filing to the Daily News.
The pair filed for joint legal and physical custody of children Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5.
Neither the “Miracles from Heaven” star nor the “Batman” actor provided a reason for their split. Rumors swirled early on, suggesting Affleck had been unfaithful with the family nanny.
