Lindsay Shookus Opens Up About Ben Affleck & Being in the Limelight

Lindsay Shookus is opening up about her life and career in a rare interview.

The 37-year-old Saturday Night Live producer revealed what it’s been like suddenly finding herself in the limelight while dating Ben Affleck.

“My entire career has been behind the camera, and that’s definitely where I’m most comfortable. I’m a producer, I’m a mom, a friend. Being considered a public figure honestly makes me laugh,” Lindsay told Elle.

She later added, “I’ve gone through a lot of change recently and I’ve gone through some really hard times, but I believe in who I am more, and I wouldn’t give that up for anything.”

And at the end of the day, Lindsay says the attention is okay because, “Someone thinks about you for one minute and then says, ‘What do I want for lunch?’”

    This interview is so wrong on so many levels!
    First of all that is an older pic of Lindsay that Elle used! Second, this article should have been about her career Third, it basically did not deny that she & Ben had been together for much longer than a year, especially after Ben’s PR backpedaled & was adamant that they had only been dating a short time & only after filing for divorce!
    Cant believe Affleck would have wanted this interview!
