Ana de Armas went out for lunch with her friends, didn’t wear a mask or socially distance

BGUS_1951944_007

Can you guys do me a big favor? Please read the whole article before responding in the comments about the title. Of course I’m shading Ana de Armas, but please don’t assume I’m writing things which I am not. It would be great if we could focus on the celebrities instead of sniping at each other. /PSA. These are photos of Ana de Armas and two of her friends out to lunch in Venice, California yesterday. I first heard about these photos from the fabulous fan Twitter account, which Ana has blocked, Ana de Armas Updates. This is the tweet they made about these photos:

That cracked me up and then I saw the pictures at our photo agency. It’s not just Ana hanging out with a couple of friends without masks, which are mandatory in California, even outside. Ana was seen hugging and getting her face really close to her friend’s face. She knows the paparazzi are there and she’s hamming it up for them. She’s also a celebrity and does she realize what kind of example she’s setting?

How would you feel if you were Jennifer Garner and you saw your ex’s partner, who has regular contact with your kids, out with their friends not socially distancing and not wearing masks? Masks work. We just heard that the protests haven’t caused spikes in covid. We are also hearing so many stories about people getting sick after hanging out with friends at parties, clubs and on vacation. As Ana de Armas Updates writes, the pandemic is not over, in fact cases are way up especially in places that have opened up, it’s just that people are ignoring it.

Also, did she tell her friends to wear black and white outfits so they would all coordinate? I bet she did. White masks are much easier to come by lately and we know she has some. That’s all I’m going to say about it.

There are new photos of Ben and Ana on Just Jared.

    Then tomorrow she’ll been hugged up on Ben’s kids. Keep an eye out, Jen.

    • Jenn says:

      Yeesh, I honestly hadn’t even thought about the kids until this post and your comment. I would be beyond ticked if I knew my coparent’s girlfriend was out living it up in LA. Covid cases are back on the upswing in California — especially Southern California.

    • LadySwampwitchGivesneauxfux says:

      No way not until she and Ben quarantine

    • JoJo says:

      Maybe Jen and the kids are in Montana or W. Virginia on vacation. Haven’t seen any strolls in the last week.

  2. Mrs. Peel says:

    Her friends look cuter than she does – ouch.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Lol, I guess everyone has their opinion but Ana’s face is exquisite, won’t say anything about the blonde as my momma told me if I didn’t have anything nice to say…

      • minx says:

        Ana seems quite thirsty but I think she’s very pretty and has an expressive face that will serve her well as an actress. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her in Knives Out.

      • Godwina says:

        I adore that shirt dress on the blonde woman and it demands boots, but those are NOT the right boots for that type of styling. Also not feeling AdA’s gramma sandals.

      • Bailie says:

        INTERESTING, to me the blond woman’s face is a lot more attractive compared to Ana’s.

        The blond woman has a great bone structure and seems to also have great skin in these pics.

        But that blond hair needs a lot of organic avocado+jojoba oil+argan oil+coconut oil+rose hip oil mask, it seems really dry and over processed.

    • Meg says:

      @minx
      I thought the same in knives out until i rewatched it on amazon and there are so many close up shots of her you kind of dont have the option to take your eyes off her.

    • Jess says:

      Anyone know who makes that great shirt/dress the blonde in the middle is wearing? I want!

  3. S says:

    Who is her blonde friend in the centre? She is beautiful and I love her hair.

  4. ziaaa says:

    Ugh the Thirst is real with this one…

    Any chance that the ‘de’ in her name is just a shortened version of Desperation!

    • Levans says:

      So thirsty!

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      Yes. I never really had much of an opinion on her. We’d watched a few of her movies, and she’s a good actress. But her constant thirst is just TOO MUCH.

      I don’t know. I’m not trying to make a name for myself in Hollywood, and maybe that’s what you have to do. Keep your face and your name out there and make sure you’re noticed. It’s just really off putting. To the point where now, I wouldn’t watch something *because* she’s in it.

    • Alyse says:

      Really liked her in Knives out, but her pandemic thirst has totally turned me off her

      • Tina says:

        I didn’t know anything about her prior to the pandemic. I read some of her previous interviews and watched clips from her various films. IMO Ana is a beautiful and talented actress; however, her narcissistic nature is a turn-off for me. Thirsty and Thirstier should just ride off into the sunset now – not really sure who wants to see their PR campaign..

  5. Rmcgrudiva says:

    I like that white linen dress and the platform sandals.

    Jen would be right to be concerned.

  6. julia says:

    She looks about the same age as the boy in the background that isn’t wearing a mask. But she isn’t that young, and should know better, especially being in the public eye. It’s clear that she only cares about 2 people in this world. Ben being the second. Yeah, if I was Jen, I’d be livid.

  7. Laalaa says:

    I do not understand the footwear between the 3 of them. The weather, the temperature?

    • FHMom says:

      The black boots are strange, right? I imagine she was dressed for a photo op and that was the look she wanted.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      nor do I.

      ESPECIALLY the linen nightgown-looking dress (which would indicate that it’s hot out) and black knee-high suede boots?!

      and yeah, if I were Garner I’d be like “nah you can now quarantine for another 14 days before you see my kids.”

    • Tiffany :) says:

      In LA, we’ve had June Gloom recently, so it’s cool and foggy until about 1pm, and the high is in low 70s.

  8. lola says:

    The governor of california should tag Ana and her bae in his daily tweets reminding citizens to wear their masks.

  9. Redgrl says:

    Am I the only person who thought Knives Out was stupid and predictable and hated it?

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      I loved it. I thought it was smart and funny.

    • lucy2 says:

      I loved it and had high hopes for her career, but this PR campaign and hanging all over Affleck is a disappointment.

      Also, if I were Jen, I would be pissed and not want the kids around anyone who was out strolling the city without a care right now. And they all need to be wearing masks!

    • manda says:

      I loved it, but not because of her. Daniel Craig for the win!!! My husband and I are constantly repeating “…while the nazi boy was masturbating in the bathroom” and “a donut inside another donut!?” His character was over the top but so funny

      • Redgrl says:

        @manda – I love Daniel Craig also and even he couldn’t save it for me! I thought even he was awful!

      • manda says:

        Yeah we’ve encountered some knives out haters, and we just shrug our shoulders. We loved it! I literally have watched it daily since it got on Prime

      • Gemma13 says:

        My husband hasn’t stopped with the “donut inside another donut” line since as well. lol.

        I thoroughly enjoyed Knives Out. I don’t know if I would re-watch, but it was definitely worth the money to rent.

    • Elizabeth says:

      It was well done with some good acting, but nearly everyone was severely unpleasant. I personally didn’t enjoy it. I will say Daniel Craig’s performance came off as remarkably clunky and overbearing. Idk why they’d want that but maybe they did.

    • Summergirl says:

      Redgrl, You are not the only one! I felt the same way!! Although I did think Ana de Armas was the best thing about it.

      • Redgrl says:

        @summergirl – phew! The being sick when she told the truth was sooo stupid, and that Christopher Plummer didn’t have kill himself in the gruesome way he did were but two of the things that I found over the top and annoying.

    • tcbc says:

      I loved it, but I didn’t think she was particularly remarkable in the part (almost any actress could have played it) and I hated her character’s vomiting thing. When people were talking about how memorable she was in it, I was flabbergasted. Jamie Lee Curtis and Toni Colette were the scene stealers.

      • Darla says:

        The vomiting thing was so stupid. But other than that I loved it. I thought the whole cast was so good, Jamie, Toni, I loved Evans playing against type…I think Ana was really cute in the part, but a lot of actors could have done that role yeah. People will think I’m crazy, but I can see loving Jlaw in that role actually.

    • Girl_ninja says:

      I really enjoyed it. I thought it was fun, well acted and well written.

    • katharine says:

      I’m with you, Redgrl. I didn’t even enjoy my boy Chris Evans in this one.

    • holly hobby says:

      I loved Knives Out. It played along the vein of an Agatha Christie novel. She was good in this. It’s too bad she frittered away any promise by being Affleck’s plaything and appearing to love the the limelight too much.

    • Scal says:

      I loved it the first go round for the ensemble cast. Evans. Johnson. Craig. Curtis. Collette. Plummer.

      Now that’s it’s on Netflix and I watched it again-they are all great. She’s super annoying with bad tears, lip wobbles etc. all I can see is the thirsty actress and not the character. That’s going to hurt her long term career wise.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I loved every second of it!!

    • Coco says:

      I didn’t like it as much as I expected based on the reviews I read.
      Her role was the straight man, which can be kind of thankless, plus it must be very difficult to succeed in a comedic role in her non-native language. So overall I didn’t find her very interesting in ‘Knives Out,’ but didn’t blame her for it. I had a lot of goodwill towards her due to ‘Blade Runner 2049.’ After her Affleck paparazzi blitz I don’t think I’ll ever rush to see something just because she’s in it.

    • amilou says:

      I thought Knives Out was overrated, and she was overrated in it. But she is very attractive.

      After this embarrassing thirst-parade, though, I’m not sure I could even take her seriously as an actress.

    • Hel says:

      Nope. I was disappointed because everyone called it brilliant and unpredictable and I knew what really happens in the first minutes! And I’m usually not very good at it.

  10. Jumpingthesnark says:

    She is an asshole……

  11. Tiffany says:

    Have any of her managers or PR people had the conversation about optics. For actors you would think that is the first conversation to be had.

  12. ME says:

    This is so careless. Do people not realize the numbers for Covid 19 are HIGHER now than when we were in lockdown? So wear a mask when numbers were lower but now that the numbers are spiking you go out with friends and don’t keep 6ft apart nor wear a mask? Morons !

    • Humbugged says:

      She was outside eating and was apparently just about to put her mask back on

      • ME says:

        But she was all in her friends’s face ! How does she know her friend isn’t an asymptomatic carrier? You still need to keep a distance. Better to just keep the damn mask on while others are that close to you.

      • Original Jenns says:

        I’m sorry! But I have to say that considering the number of scene changes in photos of her without a mask and inches from her friends’ faces, it took an awful long time to get that mask on.

      • Humbugged says:

        This multitude of friends consists of one friend then ?

  13. Valiantly Varnished says:

    The more I see this woman the less I like her. This is just dumb and irresponsible and she did it for a pap stroll.

  14. Darla says:

    I don’t think her friends look cuter than she does. She has very nice hair. I loved Knives Out, but the cast was very large and I didn’t find her to be incredible or anything. She was good. The ensemble cast was great. They should all be wearing masks, this is very dangerous. We are in so much trouble in this country right now.

    • Allz says:

      I agree on all points. I’d 100% wear her outfit. She’s really pretty, so she’s automatically going to look great in almost anything, so is life. I loved Knives Out as well, but she wasn’t the brightest star for me, I think she worked because the rest of the cast did. I wonder where her career will go from here, if people will get annoyed with her now.

    • Case says:

      Agreed. I like her outfit. It’s very simple, and she wears stuff like this a lot from what I’ve seen. Sometimes her style is a bit much for me, but she looks very pretty here.

      I can’t imagine knowing I’d get papped and still not taking the time to put a mask on.

      • Becks says:

        I would totally wear Ana’s outfit. It is my style and I have several variations of it :)

  15. lunchcoma says:

    God she’s annoying.

    • Mara says:

      What is it about her that you find annoying?

    • L4frimaire says:

      She’s been a good distraction during the pandemic. Very actressy. She thinks she’s Ava Gardner but it’s all fun. However, sis needs to be more vigilant with the masks.

  16. a says:

    Ana is holding her mask in the last photo.

    Jennifer was photographed getting coffee with a friend at the Brentwood Country Mart on May 24 and both were without masks so seems like they’re not that uptight about it. Think they’re really important indoors though.

    • Theo says:

      JG was wearing a mask and at the time she didn’t she was keeping distance from fer friend. Ana seems to be an irresponsible person who acts like a teenager . Good luck to the kids, their mother and their old grandmother.

  17. Who ARE these people? says:

    Her friend has both a mask and the need for a lower hemline.

  18. Chickaletta says:

    I’m in a similar situation with my ex. Every weekend he is ramming our daughter back and forth to this babysitter, to that person’s house to use the community pool, to the mall, etc etc. I can’t do anything about it and he insists that her well being is his utmost concern.

    A lot of people have the mentality that everyone is going to get it anyway and that it’s just a “bad flu”, so why bother being careful.

    • Case says:

      I’m sorry you’re in that situation. It scares me when I hear people casually go, “oh, we’ll all get it eventually!” That would likely mean death for some of my family members, and probably wouldn’t be good for me, either. I live my life normally during flu season and because of my annual flu shot, I’ve never gotten the flu! I have hope that once we get a vaccine in place, we’ll be well-protected. But people need to take this seriously in the meantime.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      So far, it appears that about 20 percent of people who develop COVID-19 will have lasting health problems. This is nothing like the flu. That said, the flu that caused the 1918-1919 pandemic caused people to bleed out of their noses, ears and eyes, and some dropped dead within 12 hours.

    • Mara says:

      That’s awful, what a horribly awkward and tense situation to put you in.

    • Jordana says:

      I hear ya @Chickaletta. I have a similar situation….ex’s gf is at his house constantly, and trying to be involved with my kids (a whole other issue ugh). And she’s a dental assistant! Nothing against dental assistants…but of all the people who are doing jobs that could be exposing her to covid…i feel like that’s top of the list. Again, nothing against health care workers, but this woman is not wearing a mask when with my kids, and she has been preparing food for them, etc.

      If she gets it, gets them sick, they will pass it on to me. I’m exposed and i can’t do anything about it. And it makes me mad.

  19. Case says:

    I don’t get this. I’m considering having a couple friends over (separately) next week, sitting outside, distanced from each other, and I’m even kinda nervous about that. I can’t imagine getting up in my friends’ faces like this, or walking on a busy sidewalk with no mask.

    • Redgrl says:

      @case – same here. We’ve only gotten together with friends where we could socially distance outside. In Ontario we can now expand our “bubble” so we’ve added some close family members to our “household contacts” but that’s it. I don’t get it.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Same here in Ontario, except our closest family is in the USA and we worry about them.

  20. B says:

    Lots of celebs are out and about without masks. Why the fixation with her?

    • Christina says:

      In California, we have to wear masks if we are indoors. They are not mandatory outdoors, but it is recommended that you social distance outdoors and wear masks if you are close to other people. If you are at a crowded outdoor place, like a farmer’s market that has a lot of people, you should wear a mask, but, again, it is not mandatory.

      My elderly mother lives with us, and my husband and I are over 50, so we will not meet with friends at restaurants. I think that younger people who aren’t around vulnerable people care less about becoming infected or spreading the disease. People in my age range who are essential workers are put in danger by people who do what Armas and her friends are doing, but it creates work for people who need to feed their families.

      The US government in power now is incompetent. Essential workers and businesses should be taken care of now so that restaurants don’t have to open up to provide jobs. Labor should be taken care of. We have the money; leadership just doesn’t care. We are screwed.

    • a says:

      Even in the past two days. Kaia Gerber at lunch, Adam Sandler, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith, Colin Farrell.

      Even Jennifer Garner has been for coffee for a friend without a mask

      • Theo says:

        JG was keeping distance from her friend and she was wearing a mask. She is a responsible single mother while Ana is an irresponsible girl who is with an old addict for fame and money.

      • a says:

        JG was not wearing a mask in any of the photos from getting coffee? You must be looking at different photos

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Honestly I find it odd too, especially since she’s Latina, feels icky.

  21. AnnaKist says:

    How selfish and irresponsible of them. They are too close together, touching each other and breathing all over one another. Then off the go, home to their partners and/or families and do the same with them. No wonder the bloody bug keeps spreading. And f-r god’s sake, put your bloody phones away while you’ve got an actual person there to talk with.

    • North of Boston says:

      Also, put your phone away while you’re out and about. Virus particles from the coughs, sighs, talk/laugh/yelling of people around you get on your phone, you put your phone to your face, or touch it with your hands and then touch your face, and Bingo!

      This isn’t rocket science people. This isn’t super duper hard. Cover your face with a mask when you are out in public. Maintain social distances … especially if you are not wearing a mask for whatever reason. Wash your hands frequently. Practice good respiratory hygiene (ie sneeze, cough into your elbow NOT openly in the general direction of other people… yes, even if you are wearing a mask)

      To do otherwise puts YOU at greater risk, puts EVERYONE you come in contact with at greater risk, puts everyone THEY come in contact with at greater risk – healthcare workers, front line service workers, the elderly, those with preexisting conditions, etc etc. There is ZERO reason why people can’t follow the simple guidelines to help reduce the spread, to get R-naught under 1, to get us through this sooner rather than later and reduce the # of people who get the virus, who wind up with lingering, possibly serious limitations after they recover, who wind up dying a horrible death.

  22. Elizabeth says:

    The refusal to wear a mask is so so weird to me. Protect yourself … it’s not rocket science. Especially if your state mandates it — like what is the deal?

    The other day I went to the doctor because of a medical condition (I have been isolating as much as possible and I hate it of course, but it’s a question of preventing widespread illness and death) and was required to mask up. It was no problem!

    I keep thinking, if everyone possible would isolate for a couple of weeks and/or wear masks and gloves properly if can’t isolate, and we had testing and contact tracing available for everyone, we could really get control of this. We could easily push it below replication. If the political will were there and if science and public education mattered. Yet our political “leadership” in the US would rather grandstand and close polling stations and spew racist garbage and fire prosecutors.

    • Case says:

      It really is horrifying to know we could easily get this under control if the government took some responsibility and used common sense, but they’re just choosing not to. Contact tracing and widespread testing would mean our case numbers would go up, and Trump is afraid that would “make us look bad,” and for that we all suffer. It boggles the mind.

      I’m totally fine living a semi-hermit life for the rest of the year. I’m mentally prepared to do that and have been very happy in my little bubble. But some people are really suffering mentally from all of this; some people are out of work or losing their business; some people are forced to go back to work feeling unsafe; and some people are far away from their families and can’t see them for the foreseeable future. It makes me angry to think how long this could be prolonged, and how many more lives could be lost, because of our government’s incompetence and some our fellow Americans’ lack of compassion.

      • North of Boston says:

        The Trump administration is actually CUTTING funding for testing, closing testing centers. It’s insane. Do they think somehow people aren’t going to notice that people are sick and dying, just because they slow down counting?

  23. Lucy says:

    Yeah, what’s up with all these celebs suddenly acting as if the virus has magically vanished…? The other day I saw some pictures of Teyana Taylor’s album release party and she was hugging everyone with no protection whatsoever.

  24. Jess says:

    She’s really killing any mystery around her as an actor. She’s tabloid fodder these days, and seems to be loving it mask or no mask.

  25. Leigh says:

    I see A and B already up in the comments defending her as usual 😂

    • Jules says:

      Came here to say the same lol! Hmm, would the real Ben -Ana really be so lame as to be commenting on their own post?

  26. Jules says:

    There are always a couple photos of her looking directly at the camera, it all feels so set up. She’s downed herself to a C-list actress.

  27. Intheknow says:

    I abhor violence. But she’s starting to have a very punchable face.

  28. Züri says:

    Her thirst is just too much. It looks like she’s at Butcher’s Daughter on Abbot Kinney and that restaurant has super strict “house rules” for the pandemic. And that street always has tons of people ambling about. California has been clear that if you’re outside and around a lot of people, you need to wear a mask. Does she think her “celebrity” exempts her from the rules?

    • a says:

      You aren’t supposed to wear a mask while dining even at Butcher’s Daughter but she should be wearing one on the way out.

  29. Katie_44 says:

    I hate to say it, but I think they are just doing what a lot of other Americans are doing right now. I have friends visiting each other to hang out that don’t distance or wear masks when they get to each others homes (including people who work in health care and covid hospitals). I see people on the street hanging out in groups not wearing masks. I don’t agree with what they did there, but I also see it as a sad photo of what is going on quietly throughout the US right now, just the vast majority aren’t getting photographed each day doing it. :(

    • Darla says:

      that’s part of why america is a corona s-hole right now and Europe is banning us, so, that’s not an excuse. Shoot for being smarter than the average American Ana!

      • Petite hirondelle says:

        People are not that good here in Europe. They havé already forgotten all the death and don t wear masks anymore and social distance. Like it never happens with thousands deaths one month ago (i am in Belgium and same in France at thé border) people want to party and go on holidays or to thé restaurant Sad but true

  30. Mich says:

    She always seems very “on” to me. And much younger than 32.

  31. Marigold says:

    I didn’t even really know who she was before the pandemic. But her behavior has been so obnoxious that I’m halfway between avoiding watching anything that she is in and wanting to hate watch it to make fun of her. I went from having zero opinion about her to feeling revulsion very quickly.

  32. tomato8o says:

    The photos of the three of them walking in line, color coordinated, reminds me of Mean Girls. My friends and I used to do the same thing, but we were 16.

  33. Caty Page says:

    The punishment for forgetting a mask is 14 days at home alone with no trips to the grocery store and only contactless delivery left at your door. Hope she’s ready.

    • lola says:

      But how will she survive without eyef***ing the pap lenses?! Can Benana’s relationship even survive a few days without a pap stroll?! Please have some sympathy for them.These are hard times for the thirsty!

  34. TyrantDestroyed says:

    That group of girlfriends seemed to be styled by someone who shares the same fashion taste with Jessica Mulroney. Ana loves the camera.

  35. LadySwampwitchGivesneauxfux says:

    If this was my ex he and his partner would not be seeing our kids without quarantining for 2 weeks. What selfish fools. Gross

  36. florencia says:

    She really seems exhausting in her thirst

  37. L4frimaire says:

    I like her acting and think she’s cute, but too many young folks are ignoring the masks. We are opening up but I’m not ready for al fresco dining or vacations yet. Also, I like her friends platform slides.

  38. Eli says:

    I bet this is the first sign of her break up with Ben. It’s like her way to say, “Eff you, old man. I’m still young and have my own life.”

  39. Lucy says:

    I hope her talent matches up to her desperation for fame. I’m actually tired of her already and not remotely motivated to see her in anything. Her thirst is pathetic. Why doesn’t Hollywood realise people see through this stuff? They need to find a new game because this is so empty and stupid. But then again, I don’t think there are many forms of intelligent properly educated life in LA.

  40. Meg says:

    Wow you read my mind, i too thought these outfits are color coordinated arent they?
