Ana de Armas hasn’t been seen out with Ben since July 3 & her brother is visiting

Ana De Armas out for a morning walk with her brother Javier Caso
It’s been three weeks since Ana de Armas was photographed out with Ben Affleck. As I keep mentioning, that just happens to coincide with the story in The Washington Post calling Ben and Ana “the pandemic’s first tabloid celebrities.” They stopped doing pap walks, we only saw Ben out going out alone, and it’s unclear if the paparazzi just left (doubtful), if they stopped walking their dogs together, if they stopped seeing each other, or if they kept weird hours to throw them off. We do know that Ben was in Portugal right after that article came out. It’s likely Ana was with him, although that’s unknown. Earlier this week she posted that she adopted a new puppy, Salsa. We know Ben took the photo of her with the pup, as his foot was in that picture. (He has those sneakers.)

Ana was seen outside Ben’s house on July 22. The paparazzi photographed her arriving with her older little white dog, Elvis. We don’t have those photos because they’re exclusives, but you can see them on Lainey Gossip. Lainey talks about the fact that Ana only brought Elvis and that it’s tricky to train a new pup to walk on a leash. Also she likes Ana’s pants. I own about three crazy ass big jeans like that but I never have the nerve to wear trendy jeans. I always end up in straight fit or skinny jeans. This summer I’ve been wearing a lot of leggings and dresses since it’s hot and all my jeans are tight on me. (I will fix that!)

These are new photos of Ana out walking Elvis in her town of Venice yesterday, Thursday, with a young guy who is identified as her brother. Look who’s wearing a mask finally. I like her little white and gold embroidered shift dress. Ana only has this one brother, his name is Javier Caso, he lives in NY and works as a photographer, and no sisters. The fact that the paparazzi have these photos (and they’re not exclusives) suggest they’ve either patiently waited for her the last three weeks or that they were tipped off.

So what’s going on with Ana and Ben? I think he cooled off on her after the WaPo article came out and the spell was broken. (Kaiser used that “spell was broken” phrasing in an email, I should give her credit.) It’s like they went from 60 to 0, photo-wise, you know? Plus she got a new puppy. Something is up.

    Yes the lack of photos together has been a noticable but good thing. Such a cute dog and I like Ana’s outfit.

  2. Roro says:

    I am crying at the addition of the puppy in a little bubble in the header pic. LMAO. So cute. TGIF!

  3. Darla says:

    I don’t know if he cooled on her, or just on getting papped with her. I do wonder why he would care? So weird.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      well, she’s still wearing the half-heart necklace, so I guess they’re still BFF.

      it IS weird though. seems they were together 24/7 and now, not so much.

      • Theo says:

        After three months, as the psychologists said, the hormones of the new love are not as high as they are at the beginning. Then you need something more to have a good relationship. You need maybe to have the same intelligent status, something to discuss about , to be at the similar stage of your life etc. More similarities than differences. And the addict likes the high of the new love. Time will tell about these two.

      • Jules says:

        @theo, yes this is true!

      • Darla says:

        Three months? Really? In my experience the high lasts a year,then you have to have something else. Three months is nothing.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        Theo, all true. I ain’t often right about Hollywood couples, but I feel like this one won’t last more than a year.

  4. Mia4s says:

    So someone’s people (can’t decide if it was his or hers) finally managed to have the Come to Jesus moment and point out how ridiculous they were coming across. Give that PR person a raise!

    • Paperclip says:


    • rtms says:

      Yup, the PR people finally saw the light and backed off. If this is real at all and not just a publicity stunt. Not sure if any of their movies are coming out or moved so it may have become a moot point to keep up the public displays.

  5. JoJo says:

    I really doubt he cooled off on her. They just traveled to Portugal, he was the one taking the IG pics of her new puppy, and she was just at his house. I have a hunch that it was her people who wanted to pull back on the media attention. The overexposure isn’t going to affect Ben, but it could affect her as a rising actress.

  6. Jess says:

    That white dog is so cute I can’t stand it. I cackled at the little pop up bubble with the picture! We got a maltipoo earlier this year and she looks very similar, she’s the sweetest thing ever and has everyone in this house whipped.

  7. Eli says:

    I bet the photo a few weeks ago of her hanging out with her friends with no mask complicated things for him with Jen and for Ana being around his kids. I think things started to fizzle then.

    • Kris Jong Un says:

      Yes, I could definitely see that being the case. And Jennifer Garner was probably not so cool with her spending time with the kids (maybe rightfully so?) when this seems more like a summer/pandemic fling and is unlikely to last.

  8. lobstah says:

    Wait…is that Battfleck in the pic? or her brother? It’s early and I’m tired, but they look similar!

    • Guest with Cat says:

      I’m not tired and I had the same confusion. Her brother has the same kind of style. This is what Ben used to look like before he got bloated and messy. And sort of the look he was starting to work his way back to. Which just adds to the overall Ewww factor of Benana.

      Like Covid-19, I’ll be glad when Benana blows over. I don’t think I’d like seeing Affleck paired with anybody until he’s been rock steady in having his sh*t together for at least a full year. I’m waiting for him to own his life the way Robert Downey Jr did.

      Until then, it’s just the spectacle of seeing a seemingly endless parade of women be the casualties of his dysfunction. There’s no nuance to how they are portrayed or perceived. Saint or sinner, they all get heaped with scorn or blame for HIS bullshit. It’s their reputations and careers that get damaged and they are blamed for the poor choice of being with him. Fair enough, maybe?

      But what about him as the originator of the mayhem? He continues to skate by, seeing his kids seemingly on terms that suit him, getting roles and opportunities and even more women. No wonder he seems to think this is all some big joke. And maybe it is. But while his kids are being affected by his shenanigans, dragged into his public spectacles, I’m not laughing.

    Someone didn’t like getting called out by a major newspaper…

  10. ME says:

    Has it been 2 weeks since they came back from Portugal? Don’t you have to self-isolate when you come back from out of the country? Maybe Ben is self-isolating because he needs to see his kids. Why is she not self-isolating though? Some countries have huge fines for not abiding by the rules. What’s the rules in America about this?

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      America is a mess. Whether there are any rules at all varies from state to state.

  11. Hannah says:

    Meanwhile, Affleck and de Armas are making wedding plans…

  12. Tina says:

    I think they are probably experiencing some growing pains. Both have careers that require a great deal of travel. That in itself is difficult, in addition to co-parenting 3 busy children. They have been fortunate during quarantine to be able to spend so much time together. Coordinating schedules must be a nightmare. It should be interesting to see how they manage when they marry.

  13. Allergy says:

    Haha, I love the way you inserted the dog in the picture. Super cute.
    I like Ana’s clothes.

  14. Marietta58 says:

    FYI, Ben begins filming next week. Hypnotic with Robert Rodriguez. When he’s working he’s dedicated, usually focusing all of his energy on the film.

    Working with Rodriguez should be good for his career. It’s a thriller and I’m excited to see it. (Love Robert’s work!) So, I doubt Ana will be with him. But who knows… she may snake her way onto the set. Due to her being a celebrity and him the lead, she’ll easily be able to get tested.

  15. Tootsie McJingle says:

    So…did BenAna split?

  16. Case says:

    I really love her dress in these pics. And her dog.

    I don’t think they split up. It sounds like he had to work on a project overseas? Maybe that’s why?

  17. Elaine says:

    What’s the confusion if she was seen at his house two days ago lol

  18. calibration says:

    This relationship has always had a Bennifer (v1) feel to it. If she was at his house a few days ago, I guess they haven’t cooled off too much
