FOR BEN & LINDSAY
It’s been four months since Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus called it quits, but the actor is hoping to win the Saturday Night Live producer back — with the help of pal Matt Damon! “He feels awful about what he put Lindsay through during the last months of their relationship. He swears he never meant to hurt her and would love a second chance now that he’s sober,” says the source, adding that Ben asked Matt to “put in a good word for him” when he hosted SNL on Dec. 15. (The actor was seen grabbing dinner with Lindsay just days before the show.) “Though Matt was careful not to overstep the bounds, he was happy to let Lindsay know that Ben’s a brand new man.” That’s what friends are for!
