Ben Affleck started a private Instagram account, the profile pic is of Ana kissing him

Ben Affleck has started a private Instagram account with only one follower, Ana de Armas. We know because it’s easy to see who people follow on Instagram. Ana followed this new account, I’m not going to name it but she’s the only follower, a couple of days ago and Ben’s private account is following 11 other people, including his ex wife, Jennifer Garner. Thank you to the person on Twitter who explained all this to me. I first saw this photo on the Twitter account Ana de Armas updates, which Ana blocked after they wrote a post sarcastically wondering why Ana and Ben were walking their dogs instead of praying on Easter Sunday.

The photo above is Ben’s private account’s profile pic. Ana looks quite young from the side without makeup on, right? That’s a new photo we haven’t seen before. The description of this account reads “Ben just a dad who sometimes makes movies.” That’s of course him, and he knows people will find it and see that profile pic, because he knows how the Internet works. As of publication, that account has 29 posts, which only Ana’s account can see.

There are so many other ways for Ben to share photos with Ana. I use Google Photos to back up my Android’s photos on the cloud (it works with mac phones too) and it’s super easy to share photos and sets with people. Amazon has that same feature with their photos and there are countless other apps and services for that. Ben absolutely knows what he’s doing, especially with that profile pic and description. He wants people to see that and wonder about their lurv.

So Ben is just as thirsty as Ana. This is a Jennifer Lopez redux situation and we all know how that turned out. Also I wonder how long they’re going to be holed up in that rental house two and a half hours outside LA.

    I wonder if he’s “thirsty” the way we use that word in relation to celebrities though. Or is this just the typical male, mid-life crisis thirst? I actually think the latter is more likely, and also, a good deal funnier. lol

  2. Mina_Esq says:

    I don’t know why I’m grossed out by this relationship. The age difference is relatively inoffensive, so it’s not that. 🤷‍♀️

    • AnnaKist says:

      I wonder if it seems a bit creepy because she looks a lot younger than her years, and he looks much older than his years? 🤷‍♀️

    • lucy2 says:

      For me, it’s the desperation for attention, the paparazzi strolls, and the over the top social media stuff. It’s like D list reality show celebrity level stuff.

    • Snappyfish says:

      @Mina_esq I’m right there with you. I loved her in knives out & want to like her BUT (yes there is a big but) this running around w/Affleck & the thirsty take photos of us…is too much. He is, quite simply, a douche. IMO opinion always has been & this is ruining her for me.

      • Mina_Esq says:

        Yeah, I like her individually. I think maybe I feel that this walking midlife crisis is taking advantage of her.

      • brinibini says:

        Nah, he’s not taking advantage of her. She’s into it as much as he is. People finally know her, even if it’s just as Affleck’s gf. She’s def loving it

  3. Liz version 700 says:

    It must be so hot in the desert because the thirst is struggling through both of these folks. I think this proves Ben was not as unhappy about all of the happy family walks in yesteryear as he pretended.

  4. Charfromdarock says:

    I actually feel second hand embarrassment that a grown a$$ middle aged man would take and post a photo like that even privately.

    Plus, she looks like a teenage girl.

  5. jccw says:

    I find the “just a dad” line funny, it looks like a child kissing her father.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yes it’s a very unfortunate pairing of the words and that photo. Totally looks like a kid kissing her dad.

  6. Mia4s says:

    The thirst…the THIRST. I sincerely hope this is true love for this girl because Affleck will now be paragraph 1 of everything written about her. Affleck!….and oh yeah and she’s in this movie. If it’s for the publicity it’s worth it for him….not so sure for her. 🤔

    Also as I said on the last article, if Ben actually moved 2.5 hours away from his kids in the midst of all this? Yikes. YIKES. We certainly know they didn’t move for privacy.

    • Jess says:

      This! ‘Ben Afflecks Girlfriend’ or ‘Ben Afflecks Ex’ going forward for her, unfortunately. I was rooting for her to be the next big thing after Knives Out, but I think this will be what people think of first with her now.

    • Becks says:

      The Thirst Trap of 2020!

  7. Mara says:

    I fear this relationship won’t end well but for the time being I’m enjoying this gossip story and their obvious happiness in each other is making me a bit more cheerful

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      Me too. Ben looks healthy & handsome. The age difference doesn’t bother me.
      Ana makes him happy, and he is spending time with his children. If Benana ran off and eloped I wouldn’t be surprised at all.
      Ana is decent, hardworking & proud to be with Ben. I hope this lasts, and Ben remains healthy for his children’s sake.

  8. Martha says:

    To be fair by social media standards their level of thirst is fairly run of the mill.

  9. JByrdKU says:

    It looks (to me) like a pre-teen giving him a kiss in the photo. If you didn’t know who either of them was, it could easily be his daughter (with a heavy side of weird vibes).

  10. Fedger21 says:

    This all seems so out of character for Ben. It’s not like they’re ever apart these days so it must just be pics of the two of them anyway. I wouldn’t even call it a celeb private account, he used his name and a pic of the pair of them, they want it to be seen. But why!?

    • lucy2 says:

      It’s ridiculous, but I don’t think it’s that out of character. He was all over with JLo back in the day, magazine covers and music videos, every red carpet. Then his career crashed, and he rehabbed himself with Jennifer Garner, did the happy family man image for a few years, the endless paparazzi shots. And then he crashed again, and is rebuilding again, with a younger woman, again.

      • WriterMarie says:

        This is definitely not out of character for him. AT ALL… I wonder how long it’s going to take him this time to realize Ana is definitely not good for his image. (And yes, he is not good for her’s either). The jury is still out on whether this is fake. Apparently, he had a armored car deliver a huge package the other day. He was in Venice on Monday, so I think he may be home by now.

        A guy posted that he just found out his neighbor is Ben Affleck, (which has since been deleted). His friend also posted about it, so they are definitely back in LA. The guy saw Ben smoking in the garage.

      • Xo says:

        I think she’s great for his image, actually (if you buy that they’re together) & he is great for her. . . visibility.

        Something so sad about Affleck, though. Hope the happiness is real.

    • Fedger212 says:

      I get why it would be good for PR, I just find it such a weird way to go about it. I predict either engagement over the summer or crash and burn quick! Sorry to be so cynical but the weirdness is just at top level with these two!

  11. tempest prognosticator says:

    I’m getting Bennifer flashbacks and it’s just so cringey. He is such an embarrassment for his kids whether he’s drunk or sober.

  12. Mrs. Peel says:

    The caption should read “come to Daddy” as that is what it portrays. Gross.

  13. Margareth says:

    Enough with this PR thirsty couple!

  14. Sunday says:

    This isn’t a relationship, it’s a pr campaign. I think this whole thing has just felt so off because to me, it feels like they’re using a celebrity playbook that went out of style with Heidi and Spencer. That makes me think that Ben is the one driving these “tactics,” because they’re exactly what he’s used to. The whole thing is just so cringe. I was thrilled for Ana’s success with Knives Out and can’t help but agree that this has changed any future conversation about her from a talented rising star to Ben Affleck’s gf/ex. I think THEY think that it’s making Ben seem fresh and relevant and elevating Ana’s star, but… yea no it’s not.

  15. Whatnow says:

    Just throwing this thought out there: yes they are in the throes of the early stages of their love but they also don’t have any children.

    It’s easy to be all loved-up when you don’t have three other small humans vying for your time and attention.

    Once again it is the mom at home running the show and doing the everyday things–mundane as they are BEN— that keeps life going for the children— you know the children BEN —YOUR children.

    Whatever problems people have with Jennifer it has to be admitted that she takes care of those kids and I think she seems to be doing a good job of it.

    Sorry but it just burns me that the man gets to walk away and find new Love, and make it seem like what a drag it was being married to so and so. Look at me I’m all happy now that I’m free. Well yes you are free to vacation and walk the dogs, do whatever you want because you are not taking care of the everyday mundane things that comes with being a grown-up parent.

    • Yati says:

      This so much. It’d be great from a gossip perspective if she spills when they crash and burn but he’s shown to give them handsome exit packages so we likely won’t get much from her.

    • Amelie says:

      This comment so much! Jennifer is the one who is raising them full time with Ben dropping in now and again.Keeping them fed, clothed, happy, and all that is mostly Jennifer (I’m sure Ben contributes but not that much). He’s been so up and down the last few years, Nanny-Gate, Batfleck, relapsing into alcoholism, and then that young woman he had a fling which led to another stay in rehab. Now this weird thing with Ana.

      Not to be morbid, but if something were to happen to Jennifer (as in no longer being among the living), I doubt Ben could handle being a full-time dad just based on his past demons. Yes I know I’m horrible to even think that (and I don’t wish it at all!) but I’m so glad they have Jennifer around.

  16. Brinibini says:

    So “Just a dad” Ben Affleck made a private Instagram account to probably only post pics of Ana for Ana that his children will definitely find out about

    • WriterMarie says:

      Except, I don’t know if that would make any sense? They could easily hide the messages on the iPhone, to where they would actually have to open the phone to see what it was that was sent.

      I kind of think Ana may have made this Instagram account. He actually has another private Instagram @h a r k i n s815, bc supposedly, over the weekend, some of his fans reported his other account and he was removed for a couple of days. Now it’s back up along with the Harkins one.

      Which correct me if I’m wrong, but Tony Mendez used the name “Kevin Harkins” to smuggle the US hostages out of Iran in Argo (And in real life). Under the Instagram profile (another private one,) he states his name is, “Kevin Harkins,” and Ana is the only follower again, LOL.
      I’m assuming “815″ refers to his bday.

      • Mara says:

        Interesting deductions WriterMarie. Naming an account after a character’s real life alias seems like a very actory thing to do (no shade).

      • brinibini says:

        Huh, interesting!
        I think I wasnt clear in my comment. Why is he putting dad in his bio if the account is for and about his girlfriend?! The kids have access to the Internet, his daughters may have instagram and their dad has a private account that’s obviously not meant for them to follow. They will find about this account sooner or later… it’s just weird to me. Maybe you’re right and Ana made the acc. Lol.She sure loves to post pictures of herself

  17. boobra says:

    it shouldn’t really bother me, but there’s just something about this relationship advertising campaign that comes across as being petty and disrespectful to his ex-wife and children. it’s just bizarre the way they are always in your face. not even Camilla Cabelo and Shawn Mendes were as obnoxious as these two are.

  18. Abby says:

    He’s just so gross. I was shocked that she’s 32. She looks like a 15 year old.

    In better news, Jennier Garner just posted a video of (I think) Sera singing, and she seriously has THE MOST MAGICAL VOICE. If she had an album tomorrow, I’d buy it in a heartbeat. Stunning.

    • Abby says:

      okay, just kidding. It’s not Sera, she was reposting some other kid. DARN IT.

      • Jerusha says:

        Ever since the shutdown she’s been posting kids showing their talents that they can’t currently show at school or little theatre or dance performances, etc. It’s those little video snippets that disappear after a day or so.

  19. Christy says:

    He has audaticity to write “just a dad who makes movies sometimes” in his bio as if being a dad is really his first priority in life. Is this why he keeps doing pap walks with his flavour of the moment? Ana is never going live this down, her career is done IMO. JLO survived that mess cause she was already a big name that time. Ana is nowhere close to that and I can’t feel sorry for her cause she’s clearly in this for attention too. There ain’t no love here. Two shameless users using each other. I feel bad for Jen and her kids. (never forget Ana unfollowed Jen few weeks before she went public with Ben)

    • ItBeginsWithQ says:

      Sorry, but is it not possible to be a parent and date? Why should we feel sorry for their kids? This is Hollywood, those kids have seen worse. I’m not an Affleck fan by any means but he does seem like he has a wonderful relationship with all of his kids and they seem to adore him despite his struggles with sobriety.

      And why exactly would Ana want to follow his ex wife on Instagram?

    • WriterMarie says:

      Interesting take @Christy… I want to know what people are thinking about Ana’s chances for an Oscar nod for “Blonde,”… grant it,, it doesn’t come out for a minute, but if this is a contract relationship, and let’s just say, a year. Then, we’d be looking at them splitting probably around the first week of March 2021, right after the Oscars.

      Maybe, she latched on to him bc her team wants her to take awards season? He has been known to have campaigns, e.g. a lot of people think his influence was involved when his brother won for Best Actor.

      I personally think a lot of people will not tune into her her movies now due to her thirstiness. But, what do I know?

      • Christy says:


        I feel sorry for his kids cause their dad keeps embarrassing himself, his oldest daughter is a teenager so I’m sure she has seen her dad and his new GF’s countless pap walks. If he has such a “wonderful” relationship with his kids then maybe he should start thinking about what they think of his media circus. Ana doesn’t need to follow Jennifer but considering how childish and immature she is, that unfollow is noteworthy imo.


        She has an Oscar bait Marilyn Monroe biopic coming out in November which is produced by Brad Pitt’s company. Brad is good at pushing Oscar campaigns but now that Ana has cheapened herself with this relationship I don’t see him backing her. I’m sure she’ll ask Ben to use his connections tho but he’ll be probably bored of her by then so I don’t see it happening.

    • B says:

      Get a grip….

  20. Jules says:

    When this relationship implodes, it is going to be epic. After you are up for so long, things can only go down, basic law of nature!

  21. Bucky says:

    Totally agree. In this picture, I could believe she was 9 or 11 year old kid, while HE HAS A GREY BEARD!

  22. jaylee says:

    I wonder if he wears her scrunchie on his wrist. Only following your gf on IG is the equivalent of a joint Facebook account. Gag me.

  23. Lindy says:

    I think Ben Affleck is a complete jerk so I really just came here to say that, however thirsty de Armas might be, holy smokes is she ever gorgeous! Seriously. She’s perfection.
