Ben Affleck might be dating Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, but he's currently chasing after former SNL star Kristen Wiig! Only, his interest is strictly professional.

"Ben's not known for comedy," an insider explained to OK!, and with his reputation taking a hard hit over the last year—he was accused of groping former MTV VJ Hilarie Burton—"he wants to reinvent himself," the source said.

"He's become obsessed with the idea that he should lighten up, so he's been bombarding Kristen with calls and texts," the insider continued, adding that it's making the comedic actress uncomfortable. It definitely doesn't help that she's friends with Ben's girlfriend, Lindsay.

"It's an awkward position for Kristen," the insider revealed. "She feels obligated to reply, but doesn't want to upset Lindsay."

Fortunately, Ben isn't looking to repeat what happened between him and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner and cheat on Lindsay, he's just interested in collaborating with Kristen creatively.

"Ben just wants them to write something together that they can costar in," the source said.
