Ben Affleck’s girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, went to the premiere of Triple Frontier

I am so hooked on Netflix lately. Over the weekend I was sick and watched Kingdom, a crazy six hour Korean historical zombie drama (I can’t believe that works, but it does), and The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s directorial debut based on a true story. Both were so good and I highly recommend them. We’re also getting great content from Amazon Prime and Hulu but Netflix reigns supreme, partially due to the wide range of programs but also because Netflix has a better interface. Amazon needs to fix their fast forwarding, but that might just be the app on my TV.

Triple Frontier, a heist movie where war heroes rob from a drug kingpin, premieres March 6th on Netflix. It’s a big budget action film with big stars and could easily come out in theaters and make a mint. It stars Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, Pedro Pascal and Oscar Isaac! So many people came out for the New York premiere last night including Ben’s on-again girlfriend, SNL producer Lindsay Shookus. The Daily Mail has more photos of them together, they didn’t pose together on the red carpet. I love her long dress coat I want that.

Anyway Ben looks good for him. When he’s standing next to Charlie Hunnam he kind of pales in comparison, as anyone would, but he’s regaining some of the hotness.

Also in the gallery we have all the hot costars and Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin were there too.

Here’s Lindsay at the premiere. I have to say something snarky because that’s my job. Do you think she feels like waiting and taking Ben back after he cheated paid off? I think it’s a devil’s bargain for her but we’ll see.

    Charlie can get it all day every day…

  2. Renee says:

    The Amazon Prime fast forward function does suck. That’s all I’ve got……..

  3. Mia4s says:

    Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Oscar Isaac….that’s a lot of very handsome box office poison in one movie! 😏 Sorry but it’s true!

    @Celebitchy are you sure Jeremy Renner is in this? He’s not in any of the PR material. Do you know something we don’t?

    • Celebitchy says:

      I screwed that up I will fix it.

      • Mia4s says:

        No worries! I thought he might have an uncredited role. He was rumoured for the movie back when it was a studio release. So was Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, and a few others. I’m not sure it’s a great sign for the quality of the project that studios still didn’t want to make it when they had names that big. So bizarre.

      • Celebitchy says:

        There are so many dudes in this movie I remembered him in it. I have been making mistakes lately, I talked about that on the podcast, and I appreciate you pointing it out nicely.

  4. Jadedone says:

    There is so many good looking men in this film……Charlie, Oscar, Pedro and Garrett……wow

  5. Jenfan says:

    I don’t know. Is her self esteem so low, that she can take him back after the public embarrassment of shauna. Or does she blame it all on alcohol. Or did she already invest so many years in waiting for him, that she thinks it’s worth it. Is he the father of her child, as some people suspect? Did they ever really break up? ( she never moved out of his apartment) was this an elaborate ruse to get Jen Garner to finalize the divorce? So many questions

    • Mash says:

      WHOOOOOOOOOOOA she never moved out of the apt??? Dets please

      And yes I think he is the father of her kid… its prob complicated

      • Jenfan says:

        If you on Lindsay’s Instagram, there are photos from inside her apartment that are the same both before and after the break up. She never took Ben’s photos off her Instagram either.

    • me says:

      I really don’t think it’s a self esteem thing…as much as a choice…

      I think she blames Shauna on the booze…He was like blacked out drunk that entire month.

      I think they both cheat on each other all the time and it’s not a big deal to her

    • Tourmaline says:

      Wait I thought the Jen/Ben divorce WAS finalized?

      • Jenfan says:

        Now it is. At the time of the breakup with shook / shauna episode they were still married

    • Dee says:

      Interesting to contemplate…

  6. Jess says:

    Ben looks like he’s done a lot of filler work or something. His face looks odd.

    • Mia4s says:

      Smooth is the word I keep going back to, he looks unnaturally smooth. He’s the oldest of the cast at 46 (just looked it up and Pedro Pascal is about to turn 44, Oscar turns 40 in a few days) and he’s been rough on his body for awhile. Honestly if that’s what it takes for him to feel secure and stay sober than fine, get some work done. Just…be careful.

    • Dee says:

      It makes his eyes look really small, which didn’t before?

    • Canyon says:

      A woman in his position who’d “let herself go” the same way he has wouldn’t be getting any juicy roles.

  7. me says:

    I knew they would get back together. He fell off the wagon and cheats. She probably realized getting drunk around an alcoholic and encouraging them to drink never ends well.

    I feel sorry for her, in love with a cheating addict. I hope she is in Al-Anon meetings

  8. brooksie says:

    I just watched Ben and Charlie on the Today Show. Ben was extremely charming and seems to be in a good place.

  9. jules says:

    That first photo is too funny, they both look so worn out, with themselves and each other.

  10. tuille says:

    Have Ben’s eyelids sagged?
    Lindsey looks good here. She cleans up well.

  11. Amelie says:

    So she’s the new Jen, thinking that she can change him and keep him away from his demons. I wonder how many years it’ll take her to realize that Ben is his own worst enemy. I don’t want to say Ben can’t change but he’s relapsed so many times… I won’t be surprised if alcoholism is what kills him in the end. Not trying to be morbid, it’s just what I think.

    • Canyon says:

      Alcoholism is 50% genetic. Lots of studies out there. His dad was alcohol dependent also. Lifelong thing.

  12. Nicegirl says:

    Dang it, Lindsay!

    I was rooting for you! We were all rooting for you!

  13. Bella Bella says:

    Saying something nice: Lindsay’s new hair color is pretty.

    Saying something nice and snarky: Ben looks fairly good but his face looks like it can’t move. He looks like he hates the press. His eyes look dead. It’s most notable in the picture with Charlie Hunnan. He looks like a Madam Tussaud’s version of himself.

    Saying something snarky: Oscar Isaac, you are so hot, but THAT SHIRT IS A NO.

  14. Dee says:

    I like Lindsay’s clutch. She looks pretty, overall.

  15. SM says:

    Pedro, Garrett, Oscar – hell, yeah! Ben – firm no

  16. Mimisnowball says:

    Shookus deserves better than Ben Affleck. Women will always do extra for him, so he’ll never really change. If this relationship failed before, not sure why anyone thinks it will succeed this time. She needs to just be done with him. Props to Goop who seems to be the ONLY one who figured out what a waste of time and space this guy is and bailed. Everyone else has wasted between 1-15 years.

    • Canyon says:

      +1 well said about Goop. Pre-bloat era Ben was already sleazy and yucky (His comments about Blake Lively and that drunk interview where he was pawing the journalist etc). What do these women see in him? His brother is even more gross though.

  17. Loca says:

    Lindsay looks nice here. She’s really fit and the minimal makeup looks great. I think she takes too much of a bad rap. Ben was a notorious cheater with lots of women and an alcoholic before, during, and after Garner. I do think him and Lindsay have more chemistry than Ben and Garner ever did. Even Matt Damon let it known their marriage was not going to work because there was so much anger there. He knew they were unhappy for years and Ben’s face said it all. But it finally seems to be moving in a good direction for both.

  18. LAM says:

    Charlie Hunnam and Oscar Isaac…gorgeous.
    Ben has lost every bit of hotness he used to have.

    Re: Lindsay Shookus…Am I the only one who thinks this woman looks like a man dressed as a woman?

    • Ladiabla says:

      Agree. And she is more than welcome to him. I hope they stay together, they deserve each other. I’ll watch the movie for Charlie, Pedro, Oscar, and Garrett 😍

  19. SilentStar says:

    I don’t think Ben is regaining his hotness. In other photos of this event I thought “Looks like he’s gotten work done by John Travolta’s guy”.

  20. Margo Smith says:

    His toupee is AWFUL.

  21. Anare says:

    Ben Affleck ruined his face with the eye lift or whatever he did. Not hot. Looks puffy.
