Ben Affleck’s ex Lindsay Shookus proudly shows off large port-wine birthmark covering her right leg

Lindsay Shookus is proudly showing off a large port-wine birthmark that covers much of her right leg and foot for a new campaign.

The 40-year-old Saturday Night Live producer, who dated Ben Affleck from 2017 to 2019, shared the stunning shot on Instagram on Thursday with the hashtags #MoreThanABirthmark and #MoreThanAPWS.

In a candid caption, she wrote that some people think her port-wine stain vascular birthmark is ‘weird’ or ‘ugly,’ but she wants to assert that she is ‘more than my birthmark.’ 

‘I once had someone tell me it was like I had a Jackson Pollock painting on my leg, so I like to think that makes my leg more valuable than most,’ she wrote.

‘I was born with a Port Wine Stain Vascular Birthmark from my knee to my toes,’ she began.

‘While it’s never changed and doesn’t ever hurt, I’ve learned from Dr. Linda at @vbirthmarks that I’m very lucky for the placement and the lack of any health complications, like many people with vascular birthmarks can face. 

‘Some people think it’s weird or ugly. I definitely still notice people staring at it,’ she went on.

‘None of us are ever defined by one thing, and I’m surely more than my birthmark,’ she said, calling this her ‘power birthmark photo.’ 

She concluded by thanking Dr. Linda for ‘the incredible work you do to bring awareness and funds for those in need of serious treatment.’ 

According to the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation, a Port Wine Stain (PWS) birthmark is a skin and blood vessel condition present at birth that occurs in three in 1,000 children.

Also called nevus flammeus, it presents as a pink, red, or purple discoloration of the skin. They are usually harmless.

While Lindsay has her own hugely successful show business career, she rose to the public’s attention in July 2017 when she was first spotted publicly with Ben Affleck, about two years after he announced his split with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

They dated on and off until ultimately going their separate ways in April of 2019. 

Ben, 48, has since reunited with Jennifer Lopez, 52, and the two were spotted on Thursday leaving a martial arts training session together.

And earlier this week, the couple was photographed near Bob Hope’s $40 million Toluca Lake estate, fueling rumors that the singer is looking to relocate to the West Coast from Miami for the actor. 

They were reportedly touring the five-acre property once belonging to the famous British-American comedian at around 11:30 a.m., and spent an hour there.
