Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas kissed on a beach visit with Matt Damon’s family

These photos of Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas on the beach with Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana, are “premium exclusives” at a photo agency we have a base-level membership with. I think that means that one outlet can pay to get access to them first, or that they’re extra expensive. So we don’t have them obviously, but you can see some at the Daily Mail. I got to see them all and Ana is surely aware of the photographer. I wouldn’t be surprised if she tipped them off. She’s also clinging to Ben in just about every photo where they’re standing. They have a beach blanket, two chairs, a cooler and snacks and it looks like a great day. It makes me want to go for a beach picnic, somewhere excluded and nearly empty.

When I see how many people are there it’s stressing me out though. There’s Ana, Ben, Matt, Lucy, two of Matt’s daughters and another couple, they just might be random people who are talking to them because they’re only seen in some of the shots and not on the beach blanket. They’re all outside so it’s probably ok that no one is wearing a mask. I wear a mask even when outside although I have to admit that I’ve been on two hiking dates without one. I don’t think I would do that again though as I got anxiety after the last one. (The guy was hot but too messy for me. I’m sure he found me high maintenance, which is not inaccurate.) Also there are two dogs there, a golden retriever that might be Ben’s family’s I can’t tell, and a scrappy little black and white dog that looks like Matt’s. I wish we had those photos because I would enlarge the dogs’ faces in the photo like I’ve been doing. Poor Ana’s Elvis always looks troubled.

So that’s your Ben and Ana / Afflarmas update. They’re still together, and they’re going on outings with Ben’s friends. I wonder if Ben met Ana’s brother or if they were on a break when Ana’s brother visited. That’s all I’m saying about that. Here are a bunch of older photos of them, and again The Daily Mail has the beach photos. Also the photo on the frontpage is from that cheesy music video they did.

    I don’t get her angle on this. I mean is she really that into him? She’s young & beautiful. What’s the draw with Affleck? Yes, he’s attractive but his life is such a mess. She seems so desperate for the attention. I really don’t get it…..

    • sunny says:

      He is messy as hell but I have read that he can be incredibly charming and supposedly is pretty smart. I bet when that is focused on you when he is in a good and not messy place, you think that “he’s finally turning things around”. She probably hasn’t seen/experienced the downside yet.

      Clearly they are in a serious relationship- she’s met his kids, she is hanging with his best friend. I do think it is interesting to see if he has the same access to her life, friends and family.

      • Smalltown Girl says:

        Sunny, this. I have heard that when Ben is on an upswing he is super charming and smart and fuh. The problem is that he never stays on an upswing.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      She’s desperate for attention. It’s as simple as that.

  2. Mia4s says:

    They’re…they’re just not good at this. They very well may be crazy in love (or lust or whatever), but the whole public performative piece of their relationship is just a cringe-fest. I think it’s like you said @Celebitchy, it’s the clear “awareness”. They can’t even fake just going about their business. It’s all got to be EXTRA. I’ve never once swooned or thought “awwwww”, it’s just continuous cringe.

  3. EMc says:

    I got so uncomfortable and embarrassed for them, looking at these! We all know how awkward it is when you have that one couple as friends who are over the top with the love. I guess these photos are just a small snippet of what may have been a long day, so maybe I shouldn’t judge.

  4. Sayrah says:

    They really like to pile on the PDA.

  5. Teresa says:

    Every time he does this stuff I just see him as more and more pathetic of a man. He’s always been a mess, but this is just sad. Why does he need to be so performative. Why does he need to publicly make out with a woman when he could be in love privately (and no I don’t care if he has pda with his partner but this shit is so clearly and consistently staged its sad). He is a father who is an embarrassing example of mid life crisis time and time again.

  6. LeonsMomma says:

    I think Ana saw those articles that conjectured that Ben was cooling on her after the WaPo article and is showing the world they are still very much in love.

    My prediction: marriage in a year, baby in a year, divorce in 5 years because he is back on the booze. (Though TBH, I hope these crazy kids make it!)

    • Marietta58 says:

      Yeah, no… He’s totally not gonna marry her. She is worse than JLo for his career. I’m saying that he was bad with JLo (with the pda, etc) but they were actually in love, and they had Chemistry. These two have absolutely not one ounce of chemistry. He’ll marry a Jen Garner type soon after this debacle ends. He may get engaged to Ana, but he won’t marry her.

  7. FeministKilljoy says:

    Everybody thought it was Jennifer Garner that was setting up all the pap strolls when she and Affleck were together. This seems to suggest otherwise…

    • JoJo says:

      Why does it have to be one or the other? Ben always looked like he was a child being dragged along against his will during those “happy family” pap strolls with Jen and co. I have no doubt Jen set a lot of those up, as I think she was constantly cleaning up after him while trying her hardest to project that everything was “Just fine” behind the white picket fence. Affleck may set up some of these strolls now. Who knows. But I think both he and Jen are equally capable and guilty of it.

  8. Queen Meghan's Hand says:

    The way she’s clinging to him…girl what are you doing?! And he’s still going to break up with her. He has totally cooled. Ana, cut your losses and break up with him first because it will be absolutely HUMILIATING to be dumped by Ben Affleck.

  9. Chrissyms says:

    This must annoy the crap out of Jennifer Garner. He is so extra in every way. I am not into it.

  10. BraveLilToaster says:

    I loved her in Knives Out but she’s so extra in this relationship, I can’t unsee it. It’s straight up painful to look at the picture where she’s hunched over and fake-laughing for the cameras. In any movie I see her in from now on, I’ll just see her making out with Ben Affleck, these over the top pap strolls, Ben Affleck’s phoenix tattoo, and imagine her hoisting around that ridiculous fluffy lap dog. Some things you just can’t unsee.

  11. S808 says:

    Commissioning pap shots aren’t a big deal to me cause I get celebs need to be “seen” or whatever but that photo of her hunched over looks so forced and extra to me. They just need to tone it down a bit and be less obvious about it. I’m also not surprised ben still gets girlfriends, he’s a mess but he’s cute and there are people that love a project (I am not one of those people thank god)

    • Marietta58 says:

      Did you see the article about their “body language”? It’s kind of hilarious the “expert” they had look at photos throughout their time together.

  12. Jules says:

    I feel for his kids… imagine having a dad with the maturity level of a teenager.

  13. Linda says:

    I give it a year. I also think she’ll try to trap him with a pregnancy.

    • Lizzie says:

      Totally. I think she’d settle for a ring/engagement out of this but she wants that meal ticket and a baby would do that AND keep her name in the press for many years to come. Which is clearly what she cares about now.

    • Sarah says:

      Luciana did that with her loser husband, Matt.

  14. Bread and Circuses says:

    Maybe lockdown has been really good for Ben. Maybe it helped keep all the chemical temptations away and let him really focus on healing himself and getting healthy.

    And yes, it’s all very extra, but they genuinely seem happy together, so I wish them the very best.

  15. Lizzie says:

    I see that subtle mention of the two of them momentarily breaking up tucked into the article. I’m inclined to agree. Knowing Ben’s fragile ego, the bad press and constant mocking about the two of them was getting to him, he of course blamed her for it and at the very least took a step way back from her and them. They both looked less than thrilled together and apart in their more recent pics.

    Ana most definitely saw all the articles/comments/etc. about how people think he’s cooling on her and them (he is, in the pictures and videos from their beach day she’s *always* the one initiating the physical contact and OTT-ness and he looks disinterested in her and her antics half of the time) and this is her version of damage control. It looks as fake and forced as ever and a weird move considering the story that came out that said Ben isn’t allowed to attend the James Bond premiere with her because of this exact kind of behavior.
