“Ana was his tour guide and took him to all her favorite places. Ben seemed to love the trip. He was in a great mood and very friendly,” says a source. “They are definitely dating.”

In their upcoming sexual thriller from Fatal Attraction director Adrian Lyne, Affleck and the Knives Out actress play a married couple. The pair had been seen filming throughout New Orlans several times, including a day out on a field in November. The film is set to be released November 13.

The source says while on set, they kept things on a strictly professional level.

“Ben always seemed very relaxed and happy around Ana, but at the time there were no signs of romance,” says the source. “He was very focused on making a fantastic movie. He arrived early and was one of the last people to leave.”
