Inside Lindsay Shookus' Instagram: Ben Affleck's 'SNL' producer girlfriend posts couple selfies on her personal account

Over the past year, Lindsay Shookus has gone from a behind-the-scenes power player to a tabloid fascination -- but her personal Instagram showcases a woman who's not so different from the rest of us.

You know, other than the whole "dating Ben Affleck" thing.

The "Saturday Night Live" producer, 37, has mostly kept tight-lipped about her sudden entrance into the public sphere, other than a carefully-crafted profile in Elle that focused more on her career than her personal life. But her Instagram profile is currently set to public, allowing anyone and everyone to take a glimpse into her world.

While her behind-the-scenes photos are certainly enviable (who wouldn't want to watch Tina Fey and Amy Poehler rehearse on set of "Saturday Night Live"?), other snapshots are more intimate, like birthday shoutouts to her parents -- and cheerful selfies with Affleck.

Shookus' most recent post was taken on set of Affleck's new movie, "Triple Frontier." Affleck has also shared photos on set with his 4 million followers. Shookus, in total contrast, currently has just 645 followers (the fraction you're looking for there is 1/6201) -- it's likely that most people haven't realized yet that her Instagram is publicly accessible.

Notably absent from Shookus' Instagram feed are any photos of her young daughter, who she shares with her ex-husband, a fellow NBC producer who works at "Late Night with Seth Meyers" -- just one floor away from "SNL" in 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Their daughter was born in 2013.

It's been nearly a year since Shookus and Affleck went public with their relationship. Affleck and ex Jennifer Garner are in the process of divorcing.
