Oh, the shade! Shauna Sexton — who used to date Ben Affleck — revealed that dating older men is an “insane” experience on the “Playboy On Tap” podcast. The 23-year-old confessed that she is “very much single all the time” and couldn’t help but participate in a conversation about how elderly males “don’t always have their s–t together.”
“If you’re still f–king around with younger girls and you don’t want to be tied down and you’re 50, does that say something about them?” host Raya Carmona asked. The model simply replied, “Yup.”
Ben, 46, and Shauna dated for two months before they called it quits in October 2018. Immediately after the Good Will Hunting alum split from Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, he was spotted at Nobu in Malibu on August 16 with the blonde bombshell. A few days later, the duo was seen eating at Jack in the Box.
The Hollywood A-lister checked into rehab for alcohol addiction on August 22, and Shauna reportedly visited him during his time at the facility. The dad-of-three later got candid about his struggles in a heartfelt Instagram post.
“This week I completed a 40-day stay at a treatment center for alcohol addiction and remain in outpatient care,” he wrote at the time. “The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others. Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that, no one is never really in or out of treatment. It’s a full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family. So many people have reached out on social media and spoken about their own journeys with addiction. To those people, I want to say thank you.”
He continued, “Your strength is inspiring and is supporting me in ways I didn’t think was possible. It helps to know I am not alone. As I’ve had to remind myself, if you have a problem, getting help is a sign of courage, not weakness or failure. With acceptance and humility, I continue to avail myself with the help of so many people, and I am so grateful to all those who are there for me. I hope down the road I can offer an example to others who are struggling.”
Luckily, it doesn’t seem like the former veterinary technician is crying over her ex. For now, she is just looking to have fun in Los Angeles. “That’s why people are here, opportunities,” she said. “You’re not going to tie yourself down when you don’t have to. No one wants to be tied down because they are waiting for the next best thing.”
Just call her miss moving on!
