Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus were seen at his office yesterday morning. The night before they’d been to a comedy club and out for dinner and, as I wrote yesterday, the outing was badly produced. After spending some time at his office, Ben was then photographed taking daughter Violet to a movie. This time he did a much better job producing because at least he was wearing a clean sweater and gave up some nice smiling shots while holding Violet’s hand.

Most of the shots we’ve seen of Ben lately have been with Lindsay, either in Hollywood on date nights, or in New York, outside their hotel after weekend sleepovers, or in a liquor store in Maine. Like I’ve been saying, it’s not a good look. Especially not when your ex-wife can reliably be counted on to be at church on Sundays and at the farmer’s market with your kids and strolling down the street on a sunny day WITH YOUR MOTHER as they share private laughs and put their arms around each other.

Maybe the best way Ben can produce himself is to ask Jennifer Garner to produce him? Oh wait. She did for 10 years. And in that time he became a father, a director, a repeat Oscar winner, and Batman.
