Ana de Armas got Ben Affleck a motorcycle for his bday and they rode it for the paps


If Ana de Armas gives Ben Affleck a birthday gift and the paparazzi aren’t around, did it really happen? Ana gave Ben a new BMW motorcycle for his 48th birthday and then they took it for a spin. Ana was in a cute cornflower blue fit and flare dress and still rode on the back of Ben’s bike. She gifted him the matching green and white pinstriped helmets too. She was also seen bringing a giant orchid to Ben’s. This is the woman who put a cutout of herself on Ben’s lawn. She’s not going to have a gift shipped discreetly to his house for him to open inside.

People Magazine has the details on the bike and it was custom made for Ben. You can see more pics of that at JustJared, they’re exclusives so they’re too expensive for us.

On Saturday, the Knives Out actress, 32, gifted her boyfriend a new BMW motorcycle, which was built from scratch for Affleck by WYLD Garage Co. She also surprised him with his and her matching helmets.

Wearing matching green helmets atop the similarly colored vehicle, de Armas wore a light blue dress and a pair of white sneakers as Affleck sported a simple white button-down shirt alongside a pair of gray-colored pants.

The Deep Water costars were spotted riding the new motorcycle together in Pacific Palisades, California, as de Armas was seen throwing her hands up in the fresh air.

It’s kind of cute how Ben didn’t even bother to take the sticker off his helmet before taking it out for a spin. Ana missed a real opportunity here though. She should have given Ben a bike with a sidecar! I’ve heard those can be hard to switch to for seasoned motorcyclists though.

Oh and Ana posted this to Instagram. Ben does look absolutely thrilled. Do you think they’ll get engaged? I am beginning to think it might happen in the next couple of months. This is going to be a J.Lo redux though, it already has all the hallmarks of that.

    When I first saw Knives Out, I really enjoyed her performance. Now she’s just cloying. It makes me not want to watch her in anything anymore.

  2. Tina says:

    Nouveau rich people are so… Tacky sometimes lol

    • Agirlandherdog says:

      She needs to save that money. Ben can buy his own motorcycles. When they’re done, she’s going to curse the day she shelled out for a custom bike.

      • Marietta58 says:

        LOL… I don’t actually think she “bought the bike” for him. I mean, does this girl even have any money? She gets everything gifted. I’d imagine she’d probably reached out to the company mentioned in the People article, WYLD Garage Co. and promised some pap photos and the article, so yeah. This girl totally did not pay for this bike!

      • whatWHAT? says:

        hahahahahaha! kind of what I was thinking, too.

        like, honey…you’re just starting out (pretty much). you have NO IDEA if the parts and the money are going to keep rolling in like they are (?) now. save that money and get him something a little more practical.

        this just comes off as “OMG I LOVE YOU SO MUCH WHY DON’T YOU LOVE ME THE SAME WAY OH HERE’S A CUSTOM MOTORCYCLE FOR YOU NOW YOU’LL LOVE ME SO MUCH”…like the high school girl who gives her bf teddy bears in front of everyone and decorates his locker and showers him with stuff all the time because if she doesn’t, he’ll stray or outright split…it’s got a whiff of desperation.

        ETA: Marietta58, that’s a good point. perhaps she got it gratis or at a steep discount in exchange for publicity and pap pics of Affleck on the bike. however, it STILL reeks of desperation and a “look what I gave you…you’ll stay with me right?” kind of gift.

  3. EMc says:

    I don’t know y’all. The black and white photo of him with that huge grin, and the pics of her looking so excited to surprise him.. that seems like some genuine, happy emotion and I’m enjoying it.

    • WhoWhat says:

      The grin is reading differently to me, and it’s the only pic where he’s actually smiling. The rest of the pics he looks tired and she has her usual brand of the performative laughing and striking a pose for the camera face on. Also, is coronavirus over, why no face masks?

      He left the sticker on even if it obstructed his view because it’s sponcon.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I see your point, WhoWhat. I think he seems happier than he’s been in quite a while, and to me, his smile/grin is almost, “I can’t believe the hot girl wants to be with me”. She reminds me of someone who catches sight of the ex (who dumped her) in the same room and is trying to make him see what he’s missing by smiling hard and laughing loudly with anyone nearby, all the while surreptitiously checking that she’s attracted his attention. A long way of saying she’s a fake, I guess.

      • Mia4s says:

        “ He left the sticker on even if it obstructed his view because it’s sponcon.”

        Yeah that was my thought too. We sure did get a nice clear photo of that sticker. 😏 Hey it’s all good, get paid and all.

    • a says:

      I think it’s genuine happiness too. Whether it’ll last is another story but I buy it right now

  4. Case says:

    Motorcycles really make me nervous, but it’s a beautiful bike she got him!

    Her dress is so cute. I feel like we see them so frequently that I’m a bit desensitized to what a beautiful woman she is, but she really is stunning. I know she and Ben are thirsty, but at least they seem bubbly and happy. The world is so dark right now that I honestly feel some joy in seeing them smiling together. I wish them well. They seem really in love.

  5. Nicole says:

    Is Ben getting in shape for a role? Or is this just love and wanting to keep it tight for his new woman? He’s dyed black and has lost at least 20lbs judging by the photographs.

  6. Züri says:

    Loving her Golden Goose kicks! That’s all I’ve got.

  7. Embee says:

    I just saw the new dog, Salsa is a Havanese! I am a Havvie owner as well and they are delightful dogs. (So delightful that my boyfriend’s son and ex-fiancee tried to steal him from me when they dog sat him last summer–long story–and then extorted my boyfriend to buy them one lol.) Despite those a-holes having one, Havanese are awesome dogs (if a bit slow to housebreak). The gifts are sweet. She seems very much in love. And she’s beautiful. I hope he doesn’t let her down the way he lets everyone else down.

  8. Petite hirondelle says:

    I follow her on Instagram since bladerunner and she was not private With her ex boyfriend who was not famous. She has posted a lot with him and her friends. Maybe she is just always like that

  9. B says:

    They seem very happy and in love. Good for them.

  10. Mia4s says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! The Famew**re Hall of Fame thanks you both for your application. We will let you know.

    This is what they are like when they have absolutely zero projects coming soon. When they actually have something coming out? Oh Lordy it will be UNBEARABLE. I suppose that’s what they will save the engagement for? The run up to the movie’s release.

  11. TadBit says:

    She comes off as easy to please & crazy manic. I’m uncomfortable seeing their dynamic. He’s just waking up into sobriety & will get super annoyed w pixie girl once he’s more alert.

    • WhoWhat says:

      Actually, just basing off these pics alone, it already looks like it’s getting there. He seems annoyed in most of the pics while she’s lapping it up for the paps. He’s still a famehoe though, he’s just as much of a clown as she is being complicit in this clown-a**ery.

    • Case says:

      I mean, what about her seems easy to please and manic? The fact that she smiles a lot? I haven’t seen her in interviews so I can’t speak to her personality at all, but in photos alone she just comes off as an outgoing, happy person.

  12. Tootsie McJingle says:

    You know, I wouldn’t be too surprised to hear they are so happy because Benana bred.

  13. JoJo says:

    Eh, at a time when America is turning into a third world country, and Trump is essentially stopping us from getting our own mail, I really don’t care about bashing on these two, who seem in love – at least right now. Good for them.

    On a related note, did anyone see the Rotten Tomatoes article about Ben’s acting career? I’m not in strong disagreement with it, and I actually do think he’s deserving of an Oscar nom for The Way Back. He’s at his best acting-wise when he plays this type of person.

    https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/article/hear-us-out-ben-affleck-is-one-the-most-under-appreciated-and-fiercely-talented-actors-of-his-generation/

    • Darla says:

      I didn’t see it but I respect his talent, and have always said so. If he’s involved with a film I will see it. I don’t really care about his personal life when it gets messy, I just root for him to stay healthy. He’s smart and he’s got talent.

      Okay read the article. Hollywoodland is when I was first blown away by him. I’ve never found him attractive even tho he’s very handsome, it’s not a stan thing. I just love this guy’s acting, and the projects he chooses. And yeah, he was good as Batman, that was a terrible script and a big mess with the directors. that was not on Affleck.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        he is talented. I thought he was great in the Town and thought he did a good job directing that, too. he’s hit or miss in his roles though; maybe he just needs to choose better.

        (side note: as annoying as a lot of people find Blake Lively to be, I thought she was FANTASTIC in The Town. *ducks*)

      • Case says:

        @whatWHAT? I think Blake is a much better actress than people give her credit for, honestly. She’s not amazing or anything but she does really solid work and I enjoy her performances.

      • JoJo says:

        I agree. I thought she was really good in A Simple Favor.

      • Darla says:

        omg I LOVE a simple favor. yes she was great in that.

  14. Hmm says:

    They were wearing matching shoes, too. LoL am I the only one thinking they might last?

  15. OSTONE says:

    I had such high hopes for her. She is a terrific actress, the bright spot in a stacked cast for Knives Out. She would have had a wonderful career regardless.. it makes me so sad her reputation will be tarnished because of this relationship.

  16. Darla says:

    I do think they will get engaged yes.

    I really don’t have any opinion on her, except for a fleeting impression I got of her during the Knives Out tour interviews that she can bring the drama. A print interview in particular. But I know very little about her. I am interested in the early buzz around Blonde and will definitely see it.

    Also, I think they’re in love. Will it last? Does anyone ever know? I know none of mine did, but that didn’t take anything away from the experiences. And I’m still close to them.

  17. Meg says:

    The picture of her on the bike with her arms up is just shocking to me and at this point it shouldn’t be. Were you really concerned these pictures wouldn’t be released so you felt the need to draw more attention to yourself? I just cant with the thirst from her

    • Züri says:

      I had the same reaction!

    • BeanieBean says:

      All I could think about was the killer road rash she’ll get if they crash or lose control somehow. That’s gonna hurt.

    • a says:

      In the TMZ video, it’s clear it wasn’t a proper ride, just a minute down the street and back into the driveway. She was posing for a friend taking a photo

  18. jccw says:

    i think most of us see this as fame w… at it’s finest, but my concern is safety, bare legs, both arms in the air. This is something a 15 year old would do. Reinforces the maturity level of these two, never mind the actual chronological ages. (which i know is not an issue to some folks)

    • Theo says:

      Agree. She acts and looks like a teenager. Their need to show off is out of control. As an addiction.

  19. Whatever says:

    Can you imagine the fuss for attention she will make when she is preggers?

    And then they will get engaged.

  20. Helen says:

    What insufferable assholes.

  21. Caitlin Bruce says:

    This is giving me Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes vibes right down to the motorcycle gift (Katie gave Tom one of Steve McQueens motorcycles for his birthday one year) a once promising actress getting into a relationship with a much older and powerful actor that has tons of baggage (I’d take addiction over Scientology it has to be said). While I don’t think they are totally PR I think they do play up to the cameras. Which is exactly what Tom and Katie did too. I do not believe their relationship was PR either. You can’t act the way he did on Oprah. That was real. The way Oprah mentioned another Kate (Steven Speilbergs wife) and he got all giddy saying
    “Not My Kate” I recently rewatched it and wow, I miss those gossip days. I hope Ana De Arms career doesn’t go the way of Katie Holmes once promising career. Pieces of April is a yearly tradition for me at thanksgiving and just recently watched Wonder Boys for the first time and Katie held her own with Michael Douglas in a small but great part, such a shame she lost the momentum when she married cruise. Hopefully doesn’t do the same thing to Ana

    • Jules says:

      For sure, good comparison. The Cruise couch-hopping was epic and yet to be matched, but Benana are getting close to it.

  22. TeamMeg says:

    Wow – comments run the gamut here! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, no in-between. I think Ana is so cute, I can’t help crushing out on her fresh-faced, natural beauty. So adorable. She and Ben do SEEM to be happy & in love right now, so why bet against them? Plus Ben looks terrific, healthy and sober at 48. (Nice bike, too!)

  23. tcbc says:

    The stickers are still there because this whole thing is an ad, and the advertisers want to make sure the photos have a visible logo. She didn’t pay for the bike, the helmets, or their matching sneakers. (Which is good, because she doesn’t have the kind of money to splash out for gifts like that, especially when the recipient is so much wealthier than she is.) This is a sponsored pap shoot.

  24. Lena says:

    Nobody cares if she might be a talented actress or he might be a talented actor anymore – just like with Bennifer they’ve become a tabloid l/internet joke and when you hear their names that’s the first thing you think of. He should know better since it took both he and JLo years and years to get past it. I am a little irritated when people say about couples they don’t know that they think he/she are in love or they think he/she never loved the other because nobody really knows that but them. However if it was the real thing why are they so performative and public because it just comes off as fake and not believable. I really thought they had learned their lesson when WaPo made fun of them but Ben is still doing his pap set ups.

    • Theo says:

      Matt Damon will tell again that his friend is misunderstood . At Jlo years he was a young man. Now he is a father of three young children who are not his priority. It’s insensitive to celebrate his birthday with his young girlfriend and not his children.

      • Meg says:

        To be fair he might have celebrated with them and it just wasnt photographed- even Jennifer garner doesnt court press as often lately or as obviously as ana

    • Meg says:

      Lots of good points. Ben doesnt seem to have self awareness about loving attention like he does, until hes criticized for it then says ‘focus on my work!’ well its hard to dude when you deflect from it so much. courting the press seems to get worse when hes with someone who loves attention as much as he does (ana and JLo) and they feed off each other, then when others point out how extra it is, he seems surprised

  25. Jessi says:

    I think I need a movie where she & Mila Kunis play sisters – I think they look a lot alike!

  26. L4frimaire says:

    I think these pictures are cute and Ben looks so stoked. That’s a good birthday gift;she did good. I’ve only seen DeArmas in Knives Out and Blade Runner2 so I don’t feel a way about her and think it’s a bit funny ha ha and funny strange how she and Ben do these pap strolls. Anyway they clearly are into each other, enjoying their moment and having fun. That’s a really nice bike.

  27. Kari says:

    This may be my cheap a** talking but I once gave a boyfriend a semi-nice leather wallet for his bday and we were together longer than these too. Let me tell you I still regret that purchase. A whole motorcycle? I don’t know, their whole relationship is too much for me, but whatever makes them happy I guess 🤷🏾‍♀️

    • Darla says:

      I love this comment. “I still regret that purchase”. I am laughing out loud. My BFF actually too my 21 yo niece aside when she got her first serious bf, and tells her “listen, don’t buy him any presents. If you have to buy him a present you make sure you get it on sale’. I lost it. I cracked up.

      • Kari says:

        Girl yes! I have given that same advice to all the women in my family. lol Like I am so petty that wallet wasn’t even that pricey because I bought it in Mexico, but the fact that it was nice and that I spent any emotional labor looking for something to match his style…nope not doing it again unless I am serious about the guy lol

      • Marietta58 says:

        LOL Kari… too funny! I once spent so much money on my ex-husband to make his birthday special one year, same year, we got married and promised to take me to Hawaii for our honeymoon. He ended up spending the money on a $3500 mountain bike. So yeah, no presents for any guy unless its very serious!

    • Anna says:

      omg yes…and I spent way, way too much…ugh…it was almost a decade ago and I *still* get pissed off thinking about it, especially when the credit card bill comes that I’ve been eeking out payments on for years. :(

  28. Blerg says:

    If you get divorced and your ex-husband’s girlfriend buys him a motorcycle, can you go back to the judge and stipulate something like “my kids do not ride on that thing, ever,” or do Ben and Jen just have to work it out themselves? (I don’t even know if it’s legal for kids to get little neighborhood street rides on motorcycles with their dad. But the thought of it is making me anxious, and angry at Ana.)

  29. Sailorrin says:

    I watched Knives Out on a recommendation from a coworker whose movie taste aligns very much with my own. I also love Rian Johnson so it was a given I was gonna see it eventually. Anyhowwww, I was told how she was the best part of that movie. I shit you not, you guys, I watched it and found her so fucking saccharine and fake. I really thought I was being a hater. I was like, why don’t I like this adorable girl as much as everyone else? At the time, I just felt like something rang false in the character or something. Like maybe it was poor writing and the actress did what she could with that character. Now many months later and too many fucking pap walks later can I conclusively say, naw it really be this bitch. She’s fake as fuck. I don’t buy her performance even here.

  30. Peri says:

    These two are over the top and the pictures of her looking directly into the camera, etc are annoying and really silly. But Ben has been public about every single one of his relationships, to the point where we even knew about the Wendy’s drive through thing with one of them/had pictures of him and Shookus when that mess was happening, Bennifer is still recalled, Garner was obviously huge — I know all of these and I’m not even a Ben fan, I just like pop culture!

    For some reason I buy that they’re in love and that they’ve having a good time. He’s a fame whore, and she’s an actress in her 30s approaching the height of her fame. You may call her an opportunist, but if you’re dating someone who famously loves flaunting their relationships, you’re shameless, and you want more work/attention? It’s honestly kind of smart. Funny to see how many here are putting this just on her somehow.

    • milliemollie says:

      They are BOTH fame hoes, so it could actually last for some time.
      Unless of course Ben suddenly thinks he’s above all of this because he’s a sERiouS fILmMaKEr like he has already done before.

    • Lena says:

      People here are putting it mostly on her because:
      1. I think it’s second nature for women to blame most of the faults of a couple on the woman, (sorry)
      2. In these shots anyway, and all of the ones taken that day that are not on here, she really is doing all the mugging. He looks annoyed which he has done before acting like he doesn’t like the paps when he’s offered them shots (as in pictures) before

      By the way People only surmised Ana got the bike for Ben. On ET Canada instagram the bike company Wyldgarage said it was sponsored.

  31. SJR says:

    BA is an annoying man child who is a walking cliche of a mid-life crisis, circa 1970′s.

    Drinking, gambling, adultery, rising Phoenix full back tattoo, now motorcycle riding, who spends his time stroking his ego with his much younger, thirsty actress girlfriend, papped at every chance during a pandemic, etc, etc.

    Meanwhile his 3 young children get little to none of his time or attention.

    IMO, this guy is a failure at Fatherhood. One more who has children but none of the work caring for or being usefully involved with them.

    Ugh! What.A.Tool.

  32. Hello says:

    Anyone else notice that it looks like they’re wearing same shoes on bike?? 🤔😂 (Full disclosure my husband and I wear same brand flip flops….)

    • Lena says:

      Yes same shoes, same yellow strings, same half heart necklace, matching helmets -it’s junior high all over again

  33. Carolnr says:

    A “source” claims that there is no pressure in Ben & Ana’s relationship. Also says that Ana is “fun, loving, & caring.” Of course she is fun…she has no responsibilities but to be a devoted girlfriend who is carefree & giddy over Ben!

  34. Diamond Rottweiler says:

    Having been thrown from a bike as a kid—luckily my dad was going slowly when we hit a gravel patch—all I can think when I see pics of women totally exposed in cute little dresses on the back of a bike is, “Well, your head won’t explode like a watermelon hitting the pavement, but one small accident and that road rash is going to peel you like a carrot.“ *shudder*
