Matt Damon, 48, is not letting his longtime friendship with Ben Affleck, 46, interfere with business! On Tuesday, December 11, the hunk was spotted at a Saturday Night Live power dinner with his pal's ex, Lindsay Shookus, 38.
The two were all smiles after leaving the Italian hotspot and couldn't stop laughing while walking to their cars.
As fans know, Damon is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and Shookus is an SNL producer. So while they likely talked about work during their outing, there's no way they could've ignored the elephant in the room: Shookus' recent split from Affleck!
Radar readers know Shookus dumped Affleck this August after the Justice League actor ditched his sobriety pact and started boozing again.
And while it didn't take long for Affleck to move on with Playboy model Shauna Sexton, Shookus quickly got off social media and turned recluse to focus on her successful career. Days after the split, she even won an Emmy!
Affleck, on the other hand, landed himself in rehab and was uninvited from a guys' trip by his best pal, Damon. Though Affleck relied on his friend to point him in the right direction and be his life coach, sources said Damon grew tired of the wild actor's drama and bachelor lifestyle, which is why he chose to distance himself from their friendship.
And now, he's out with his ex! What do you think Ben Affleck thinks about Matt Damon grabbing dinner with Lindsay Shookus? Sound off below!
