Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas made out for a video of people making out worldwide

My original title for this story, before I saw the video from Residente, below, was “Ben Affleck ‘worked hard’ to make Ana de Armas’ birthday ‘both safe and memorable’” That made me think of condoms, honestly, which is good because we’ve previous heard that he wants to get her pregnant. I know I shouldn’t open with that, but Ben/Ana’s PR person should be more careful about the way they’re wording these BS insider quotes. Anyway Ben took Ana to Joshua Tree for her 32nd birthday, we know because they posted so many photos of it. That was when they went Instagram official, and someone wants us to know that Ben worked really hard on that.

“Ben went over-the-top to make her happy and make her birthday with him be extremely special,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “Ana feels like the luckiest girl to be with him.”

To get away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, the couple took a trip to Joshua Tree National Park when [Ana] turned 32 on April 30.

“He worked hard to make her birthday both safe and memorable,” a second source tell Us of Affleck.

[From US Magazine]

I’m wondering who is leaking these stories. It could be either Ben or Ana, but I’m leaning toward Ana. Ben wasn’t been seen outside her place in about six days, however they did reunite yesterday. I don’t think they’re breaking up at all, I think he was doing his own thing for a little while and I bet she was getting anxious about it. That’s how new relationships go – you spend a ton of time with the person and you inevitably need some time apart. Add our new realty to that and it puts so much more pressure on. I know of at least one new quarantine relationship where the guy felt completely smothered spending all his time with the new woman.

After I wrote most of this story this video came out, by Puerto Rican musician Residente, of people making out around the world to show that they’re still getting it on during the pandemic or something. The caption says, in Spanish, that it has more than 100 kisses around the world. I find PDA gross, it’s fine in the context of a show but seeing random people sucking face turns my stomach. You guys owe me for watching four minutes of this. At least there are same sex couples too, Ricky Martin and his husband Jwan Yosef are in here at minute 2:55.

Ben and Ana come on at 2:23, they taped this during her birthday getaway that Affleck worked so hard to make safe. At least they didn’t use tongues like most of the other couples. I am listening to this slow boring song as I watch this, but I’m hearing “Jenny from The Block” in my head.



This couple from Norway making out in front of their kids! This video is so ridiculous. Will it top the Imagine video as the flop of the pandemic?

    All I can think of is the Michael Scott cringe face gif. Yikes.

  3. Alissa says:

    this explains the awkward video I saw this morning on Zoe Saldana making out with her husband on Instagram.

  4. Darla says:

    I don’t get the point of any of this? Yay we’re adults having sex? Some people never grow out of the high school mindset, I guess. I mean the whole video, not just these two.

  5. MattyLove says:

    Soooo many women thinking they’re going to save this man from himself. Run away, ladies. You don’t need that.

    • WTW says:

      I actually enjoy this couple together. I mean, if I were Ana’s friend or loved one, I’d probably be concerned about her getting with an older divorced man with three kids and a history of substance abuse, but they look very in love to me, and that warms my heart. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been with my husband for so long, but seeing two people in the first throes of love/lust makes me happy.

      • Lilah casting says:

        He also has a history of inappropriately touching women.

      • B n A fn says:

        I still don’t think it’s love. It attention seeking, IMO he never really looks happy, just going through the motion. I always remember seeing him in the back of a car drunk as a skunk with Jennifer 2.0 driving him to rehab.

      • lola says:

        . Theyre in lust with each other and they are definitely in love with themselves and the attention. Her face is finally everywhere and everyone knows he is dating a hot chick.

  6. Toniko says:


  7. Ange says:

    His head looks so big compared to hers.

    • Jojoba says:

      I thought that only I had realized that! lol

      • Theo says:

        Yes, these pictures are weird. At the last picture he looks like an old dirty man with fake teeth and dark coloured hair who is kissing a young girl. I prefer the Jlo video. Then he was a young and handsome man and Jlo was a sexy beautiful woman. This current pairing is not attractive at all.

  8. LolaB says:

    They creep me out so bad, looking like father and daughter.

  9. lola says:

    Man, he’a gonna trash talk her so hard once this implodes. They are worse than Bennifer 1.0 so he’s gonna be even more embarrassed and try harder to blame her for everything. I would almost feel sorry for her if she wasn’t so thirsty.

    • Noki says:

      My number one scenario on future break ups that will be hears around the world for the mud slinging has been Kimye for quite some time but i can see this once its out of Bens system will be quite spectacular.

    • Christy says:

      I bet his PR team will unleash a tsunami of ‘Ana didn’t like Ben visiting his kids’ articles to make him look like a victim. Their break up is going to be a bigger circus than their relationship.

  10. Yoyo says:

    Hope in six months we don’t hear Ben claiming it was Ana’s idea for all these paps shots.
    I wonder if Garner is at home laughing at the Ben and Ana show, saying girl wait until you see the other side of him.

    • Rainbow7 says:

      Jen followed him on his private Instagram so yes maybe she’s laughing her ass off. He is always super extra in the honeymoon phase of relationship

      • Theo says:

        She is laughing as he is not her biggest problem anymore. But what are his daughters feelings about their dad’s stories?

      • WriterMarie says:

        I think she followed him bc he’s had previous private Instagram accounts before and I think it’s mostly just for him to post stuff about his kids to his family, friends. There is a woman on a different thread who he let follow him (by accident she thinks) and she said it’s all family stuff, and that he seems like a great dad and they adore him. She also said he never posted anything about who he was dating. At the time it was Lindsay. But since his profile pic is him and Ana, who knows?

  11. Tina says:

    I believe they were in Georgia for a few days, hence the lack of pap walks. It appears they have been on at least 3 trips together since March. I don’t believe he has been photographed with his children since late April. From a PR standpoint, all these photo ops have raised her profile, but I don’t think they are a positive look for him.

    • Ellie says:

      Is that where the fan selfie was taken where Ben said Ana was in a bad mood? She must’ve been missing Rodrigo.

  12. B says:

    I think it’s quite sweet, tbh.

    • WTW says:

      Me too! I think we’re the only two people who feel this way. LOL

    • pamspam says:

      Same. I typically don’t like seeing people kiss and fully expected to hate this video. Instead, it made me cry. The Moroccan couple…my heart.

      I would give anything just for a hug. 66 days. This is so hard.

      • Carolnr says:

        Ben just seems to make such poor decisions in his life..decisions that not only affect him but his children, as well! He makes these decisions on impulse & will later look back on them and wonder what the h$ll was I thinking?! He makes the same mistakes again & again. He regretted doing that video with Jlo & now he decides to do another video? He had said he regretted getting tattoos earlier& then decides to get a huge one on his back?
        He preplanned a birthday party for his girlfriend but didn’t have presents arrive on time for his own son’s birthday?
        Sounds like a catch to me., lol!


  13. OriginalLala says:

    That making out looks super awkward!

  14. Mrs. Peel says:

    Girl gone … and lost her mind.

  15. FHMom says:

    I know she is a grown woman, but what 32 year old needs a guy with more baggage than an airport? This relationship is so cringy. I can’t wait for her post break up reflection interviews

    • Astrid says:

      too funny…more baggage than an airport. I’m going to remember that one for a while LOL

  16. Who ARE these people? says:

    He has 3 kids and they don’t need this.

  17. Mia4s says:

    Hahahahaha!!!! Oh dear.

    Ana don’t get married and don’t get pregnant but….enjoy I guess? *cringe* (I’m trying to be nice today).

  18. Fedger212 says:

    They are really upping the cringe stakes. BFF pendants, PDA music video, I’d like matching tattoos next, please.

  19. Tired mom says:

    I honestly liked the video, it made me happy. I love to see people kissing in real life. Lots of happy couples. We need more kissing and less masks!!!

    • Mia4s says:

      “ We need more kissing and less masks!!!”

      Errr, that’s potentially a nice sentiment but I hope you’re referring to couples already quarantined together? Because otherwise what we will end up with is less kissing and more death. So…

      • Tired mom says:

        No, I think everyone who is healthy should get out and live normally. Covid is overhyped and we need herd immunity. Kiss away everyone, as long as you are healthy!!!

    • Léna says:

      No tired mom, just no. Covid 19 will be present in our lives for a while, at least until we have a vaccine. To say we should go on our normal lives if we are healthy is not good, because you can still carry Covid even if you appear to be alright. It should not go back to normal until a long time. You can stop hugging co-workers or friends and you’ll be fine trust me. Just stop this bullshit

  20. SM says:

    If he wanted a good bd party, he should have brought some water because the thirst here is going to dry out all the life out of this relationship. Jesus.

  21. Sushiroll says:

    Cringe and dry heave.

  22. lucy2 says:

    Of course they did.

    So glad they got away from the “hustle and bustle” of LA – the city is still in lockdown, and they live in relatively suburban areas within the city. And shouldn’t be traveling during a lockdown. Adults don’t need to have their birthdays made “special” during a pandemic.


    I don’t like seeing random people making out either but I don’t mind it in shows. Though I am wondering if that’s because it’s part of the plot/character development so I don’t care, or it’s just that CW shows only hire insanely hot people so it doesn’t bug me. I’m hoping I’m not that shallow but who knows? Happy Friday!

  24. AnnaKist says:

    Oh, for crying out loud! These two attention-famished fuckwits… 🙄

  25. Cacec04 says:

    This does more than make me cringe. I think she’s thirsty, but I also suspect he has a pattern of love-bombing his girlfriends so he can be an asshole later and make them think it’s their fault. It’s creepy.

  26. WriterMarie says:

    Does anyone feel like this is worse than Bennifer 1.0? And I feel like it’s moving faster, like they’re trying to cram it all in before a certain amount of time.

    I also find it strange that Ben used to say after JLo he would never do another music video bc of the backlash he received. And now he’s in another music video… LOL 😂

    • Mara says:

      I don’t think it’s worse, I’m just less invested because I don’t care about Ana as much as I care about JLo.
      I am enjoying this though and after this am wondering what they will do next.

  27. TheOriginalMia says:

    That Bennifer 1.0 pic was the beginning of the end for them. I guess Ben’s grown from that universal embarrassment. He used to are about these ridiculous PDA-fests. Now, it’s requisite to flaunt his love for paps and normals to see. Just a new high for him. Don’t know Ana. I liked her work, but this is too D list for me. Especially for a 30-something grown ass woman.

  28. M says:

    Btw a guy called Leo Messi is also in the video.

  29. reef says:

    Idk why I find these 2 so funny and enjoyable, but I do. It’s all just so ridiculous.

  30. Loca says:

    Ben has always loved latinas. I don’t see them breaking up soon. Ana has a positive effect on him. He looks happy to be with her then he has looked in a long time. He is divorced… it is ok to move on & date. Ben doesn’t have full custody so he will not have the kids daily. But he does see them and at least they get more one on one time with their dad than before. I think it’s great they do their own thing regardless of how people feel. At least she isn’t complaining about people being against their relationship …it doesn’t affect her.

    • WriterMarie says:

      No, she just blocks fan accounts from her social media when they mock her. Apparently, doesn’t affect her at all. 🙄

  31. Case says:

    @Celebitchy, Zoe Saldana and her husband are in it too! At the 3:07 mark.

  32. anon says:

    This completely appropriate relationship between and old drunk and the new kid on the block is not going to end in tears and recriminations. At. All.

    (Hint: It totally will.)

  33. Beach Dreams says:

    These two are so very embarrassing. Ben’s as much of an attention whore as he was in the Bennifer 1.0 days and Ana seems to be equally thirsty for the spotlight. Kind of feels like she came out of of nowhere.

  34. Thea says:

    Escape the hustle and bustle of a lockdown LA? That doesn’t make sense. Sorry, but I think people who make nonessential getaways during a pandemic are selfish and dumb.

  35. Jayna says:

    Oh, I also believe he is really happy and in love. There can be thirst and still the happy-in-love feeling going on. He is really the best he’s been in years. He turned in one of his best acting performances in ”The Way Back.” And because of that movie, I have so much empathy for his addiction struggle.

    So I can roll my eyes at them at times, but still be happy to see him have an air of peace about him.

    • WriterMarie says:

      I think he is happy and I agree, he was fantastic in, “The Way Back.”

      Ana, on the other hand… I’ve tried hard to like her. She is beautiful, but I’ve just seen too many red flags with her. And all the nude/love scenes on Instagram. Better hope Ben’s kids don’t look those up.

      I hope they are just having fun for now in this horrible time. Because they aren’t working they may get along fine until they are filming on opposite sides of the country. Only time will tell.

  36. clairej says:

    Ben and Ana actually looked kinda sweet. I am not sure I wanted to see Messi’s tounge

  37. Faye G says:

    Ugh was this really necessary? 🤢🤢🤢

  38. Awkward symphony says:

    #cringy 😖

  39. ArniePz says:

    What is Ben’s deal right now? Who does pap walks anymore this isn’t 2007.
    Also, isn’t this exactly what his issue with JLo was?

  40. Summer says:

    Omg. I really liked her before all of this. Please stop.
