Even though Ben Affleck has done two stints in rehab for alcohol, he was seen having a mixed drink at the HBO Emmy after-party, In Touch magazine is reporting. “He ordered water at the bar but a server brought him over the alcoholic drink once he sat down at the table,” an eyewitness tells In Touch exclusively. “He drank all of it.”

His new girlfriend, producer Lindsay Shookus, sipped on champagne after winning an Emmy for Saturday Night Live. Ben was caught drinking post-rehab earlier this year, too. A source close to Ben tells In Touch, “Ben continues to focus on a balanced lifestyle.”
One thing that’s changing drastically for Ben is his love life. As In Touch previously revealed, things between Ben and his new lady are heating up quickly. A source close to the Hollywood pair revealed that this couple is getting more and more serious as the time goes on!
“They are already talking marriage,” the insider said. It’s clear these lovebirds are totally infatuated with one another, even though both Ben and Lindsay are still legally wed to the respective estranged spouses. According to the source, Ben has known the Saturday Night Live producer for many years even though they “only officially got together recently.”
