Not Just a Summer Fling
Shookus prefers to be away from the limelight while encouraging the actors she works with to handle the attention. However, all that changed when reports of her with Affleck made the rounds. After all, nobody can be seen with Batman and not be noticed! It seems like couple caught up with each other when they were both in London, England last July.
They went to see Sam Mendes’ play, Ferryman and spent some quality time together. A source said about the couple, “It’s more than a summer fling. They are having fun and care for each other. It’s early, and they are taking it slow.”
Fast forward seven months, and the couple seem to be doing well enough that they are apparently house hunting.
No Time to Waste
There appears to be no time to waste for the two, as the couple were allegedly spotted house hunting on Valentine’s Day. Currently, they live on separate coasts with Affleck maintaining a home in Los Angeles, and Shookus living in New York with her daughter.
According to E! News, the couple were house hunting in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles. This would place them not to far away from Affleck’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner and kids.
People who were hoping for an Affleck-Garner reunion must be crushed, but the actor seems to have moved on. Garner was also recently spotted with a mystery man. Though details about his name and what his relationship with the actress is, it looks like both Garner and Affleck are wasting no time in finding love again. Shookus is not used to being under the spotlight, but looks like she will not be as lucky this time.
