Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas ‘don’t have any issues being holed up together 24/7′

These are new photos of Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas walking their dogs on Saturday. There are some more from last Thursday at Just Jared (they’re exclusives so we don’t have access to them). In those photos Ana is wearing a red print shirt dress and staring at Ben like he’s the best thing ever, as she’s been doing in just about every other set of photos we’ve seen of them over the past few weeks.

I’m pretty sure these photos are from outside Ana’s place as the setting looks different and the photo agency says they are in Santa Monica. They look annoyed at the paparazzi but I imagine the lockdown is grating on everyone. I do wonder if they’re having problems but I think they’re going to last for a while. On Sunday they went to CVS and got some iced coffee at Dunkin Donuts.

Page Six has a very long profile of Ben and Ana along with some quotes about how Ben and Ana’s relationship got fast tracked due to the lockdown.

“Ben was due on set [of ‘The Last Duel,’ written with and co-starring Matt Damon] and Ana was meant to be on a world tour [for the James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’],” said a source close to the couple. “To get to spend so much time together is a real blessing.”

De Armas, the breakout star of last year’s movie hit “Knives Out,” moved in after the two took a romantic trip to Costa Rica and her native Cuba last month.

“They’re really into each other, they get on extremely well and they certainly don’t seem to have any issues being holed up together 24/7,” the close source said…

The film industry source, who described de Armas as “extremely sweet,” said of the actress: “You don’t get to Hollywood from Cuba if you haven’t got steely determination. She’s been living out of bags for the past few years, going from project to project.”

An insider added that Affleck has been able to start a new relationship only after working on his issues, saying: “Ben continues to work hard on his health so that he can be there for his family.”

I mean, did they need to do this? The whole piece is very long and definitely publicist-underwritten. We also have some photos of Affleck smoking a cigarette while wearing a surgical mask. I find cigarette smoking gross in general, but there’s something worse about it when the person is wearing a mask. I imagine the smoke clinging to the fabric. We’re advised not to adjust our masks as that can contaminate them and are told to wash them right when we get home. I don’t want to shame Ben for this, especially if he’s sober and is working hard to maintain that. I’m just surprised he doesn’t vape instead. Those photos are from Thursday and Ben was seen loading a bag in his car. Even though Page Six says that Ben and Ana are living together, I think she has a separate place in the Venice Beach area.

Also I hope Ben has a good sober community at this time, if that’s what he needs. There are virtual meetings and he can always pick up the phone.

    “they certainly don’t seem to have any issues being holed up together 24/7″

    That’s because they’re constantly going on pap strolls during the pandemic, the thirsty bitches.

    • Sunny says:

      Tinfoil hat … but she was supposed to be the next big thing and then hollywood shut down due to corona. Possible they’re being so extra to keep her in the press so her hype doesn’t fade since so many projects are now shelved and delayed?

      • Jess says:

        I agree. Way too staged.

      • Sean says:

        Sunny, it wouldn’t surprise my if your theory was the truth behind the papwalks. However, they’ve come off as so needy and tone deaf that I don’t want to see either of them once this is over. That’s coming from someone who likes several of Ben’s movies.

    • Theo says:

      The Afflarmacians!

    One, I hope she did that fresh pedicure herself. Two, I wouldn’t shame any addict who is eating a lot of junk food (most do for a time, alcoholics included), or who is smoking. It’s not ideal, but it is what it is.

    Lastly, of course they have no issues. I was just saying to a friend yesterday that I cannot imagine living with any of my exes through this without kicking them out or leaving myself. Except for a couple of really great loves, during the first year. When it’s all magic. Yeah, in the first year of something really good you can make it. And that’s where they are right now.

    • S says:

      This. I’m not gonna pretend I get the appeal, but they are clearly in the early stages of a relationship, where all you want to do is spend every minute together, most of them in bed. She’s clearly dickmatized. I have no doubt he can be charming af when he wants to be—I mean, that’s a big part of why he’s a movie star. And, as his string of long-term, very public relationships show us, he definitely seems like the type that loves being in love and wants everyone to know about it. That can get exhausting and/or unsustainable long term (burning so bright, you can’t help but flame out)—something else we’ve seen in Affleck’s relationships—but in the early going? I’m guessing it’s glorious, even if he would be about 10,000th on my personal list of celebs I’d like to be quarantined with.

  3. SJR says:

    Affleck is no catch. He is a man-child. Plus that hideous back tattoo, ugh!
    She is truly thirsty to take up with him.
    Wtf, Affleck has 3 children who are growing up w/o a useful Father in their lives and he flits from one thirsty chick to another. Nope.

  4. CidyKitty(CidySmiley) says:

    Sure. We all believe that. I’m sure someone would be perfectly happy being holed up with Ben Affleck 24/7 😂😂

  5. Ali says:

    So he is not seeing his kids?

  6. Veronica S. says:

    Well, they haven’t been holed up, that’s for sure. In fact, WE would likely have less issues with them if they were.

    God, he’s embarrassing. Jennifer Garner must be feeling the weight of her back these days after putting her fourth child up for adoption.

  7. i hope they last!!!!

  8. pineapple says:

    Um … it is a new relationship. All they are doing is having sex … well, and pap walks.

  9. a says:

    I hate smoking bug vaping is more unhealthy, I think. The Daily (my favorite podcast) did a two-part special about all the emerging health problems and lack of regulation surrounding it.

  10. Christy says:

    I wonder how Ana will react when they ask her about Ben in near future. Based on her last VF interview, she seems like a whiny, entitled brat who believes everyone should worship the ground she walks on. I won’t be surprised if she started complaining about how people make fun of her joke of relationship with Ben, even though she brought it on herself.

  11. Loca says:

    Just like the way MM complains and whines all the time?? Honestly I haven’t seen where Ana has given a reason not to be liked. Its fine if anyone does not feel fondly of her. Other than pap walks, which is also done by several celebrities she’s remained fairly quiet. Ana and Ben are hanging out doing normal boyfriend and girlfriend activities. Ben has never looked happier and more at peace. I don’t see this relationship ending soon. Ben is divorced for quite some time now…he is allowed to move on.

    • Léna says:

      They could do this 24/7 I wouldn’t care. But we are living through a pandemic. Maybe they could lay down on the pap strolls and stay home

      • a says:

        @Léna So people shouldn’t walk their dogs out of respect for those suffering during the pandemic? Seems like a stretch.
