Ben Affleck went out for dinner at Giorgio Baldi last night in LA and the paps say he was joined by a “mystery blonde”. They were there for three hours. So… who’s this “mystery blonde”? I don’t know for sure. But here’s a theory:

Here are the most recent photos of Laurene Powell Jobs from Getty Images:

Looks like it, right? 

Business dinner? 

If it is Laurene, she does have Hollywood connections. I mean, Hollywood always wants to make connections with billionaires so that’s not surprising but she does invest in arts and media and has a stake in Disney, Anonymous Content, and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, just to name a few. This summer she partnered with Leonardo DiCaprio on a climate change non-profit called Earth Alliance. So she and Ben could totally have been talking business. Or, you know, since they’re both single…

A source tells Page Six, however, that Laurene and Ben have been friends a long time and have worked together on his East Congo Initiative so it’s not unusual for them to be meeting up. 

That said… 

Friends can also become more when the timing is right. Something to keep an eye on…
