Ana de Armas ‘sometimes picks dumb and immature fights’ with Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck's girlfriend Ana de Armas pulls down his mask for a kiss at a beach photoshoot
We haven’t seen any photos of Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas out together practically since the Washington Post ran that cute article calling them “pandemic’s first tabloid celebrities.” They seem to have rejected that title, or someone on their PR teams told them to dial it down because they really did. We do get periodic updates about them in the celebrity-friendly press though, like US Weekly, which is running this article saying they’re practically living together in Ireland. They’re there while Ben is working on a film with Matt Damon. I guess that explains why we haven’t seen them in so long. It’s been a month since our main photo agency has had pictures of them. Oh and US says they do have problems, but they’re Ana’s fault because she picks petty fights. Nice.

“Ben and Ana basically live together and Ben is very into Ana and so sweet to her,” an insider tells Us Weekly exclusively. “They are like any couple and sometimes she picks dumb and immature fights with him, but he doesn’t get flustered and they’re never about big issues [or] dealbreakers for either of them.”

Affleck, 48, and the Knives Out actress, 32, have been spending time in Ireland while he works on a new movie that he wrote with pal Matt Damon, The Last Duel, the source says. The couple’s getaway comes six months after Us confirmed that they were “happy together and officially dating” after sparking relationship rumors on a romantic trip to Cuba in March.

On one hand this story sounds like PR from Ana’s side – they’re practically living together! – but on the other it’s kind of rude to her by saying she’s immature. Is this Ana being self deprecating and does that partially explain why she’s so dickmatized? “Oh I know I’m so immature but he loves me anyway and puts up with me.” Girl I know he is rich and good in bed but you can do better! The part about Ben being so stoic sounds like it comes straight from him though. No matter how neutral and normal his side tries to sound he’s always showing his hand. Remember when we heard that Ana was helping Ben maintain his sobriety because she “came into his life and has given him everything he wants and needs in a partner?

I have to give a shout out to my friend Rhiannon, who is almost over her crush on Ben thanks to Ben and Ana’s ridiculousness. Rhiannon has spoken about her love for Ben in our Zooms and you can hear her talk about Ben on podcasts number 54 and 59!

Anna is starring in a new ad for Only Natural diamonds. Outlets are saying this guy in the commercial is a Ben Affleck lookalike, which seems to be true. Also they’re only showing glimpses of him so our minds can fill in the blanks. If this was really Ben her diamonds would be a lot bigger though. Once they’re together a couple of years he’ll start giving her giant pieces when he needs forgiveness.

Ana is also doing ads for La Mer, which makes zero sense to me. The women who can afford that stuff are old like me. I can’t afford it, but the women L’oreal hires are more likely to convince me to buy creams, like Viola Davis, Helen Mirren and Andie MacDowell.

    Isn’t their movie supposed to come out next month? I assume we’ll get photos soon. Can’t wait.

  2. Meime says:

    When they started doing their pap strolls constantly and she blocked her fan page or whatever I got a sense that this woman is kind of immature and dramatic. I’m not saying Ben Affleck would someone I’d choose. He’s got his own issues, but Ana just seems like she’d be a little petulant. This all based off photos and absolutely no real evidence of course. Just my hunch on her.

  3. Mia4s says:

    Ah yes, laying the groundwork. So when there’s a break up she was just too immature and petty for a devoted father dedicated to his sobriety. Yeah this was his people, I’m calling it.

  4. Kalana says:

    Only natural diamonds as opposed to lab-created? I’d take lab-created.

  5. Merricat says:

    She is fully aware that she’s a beautiful child. Ben better look out.

    • Vote Science says:

      In what universe is 32 a child?

      • Merricat says:

        In a universe that takes mental and emotional levels of maturity into consideration.

      • Vote Science says:

        @ Merricat
        Sure, but in this case based on what, your armchair diagnosis from behind a computer? I just feel that infantilizing grown women is insulting, and so is painting one as a Lolita-esque figure ensnaring Poor Ben.

      • Merricat says:

        Every opinion that happens here is armchair diagnosis; I think that’s what gossip is, conjecture and extrapolation. I also think the “she picks dumb and immature fights” remark came from her, and I believe her.

      • Vote Science says:

        I get that. Agree to disagree 👍🏻

      • Rhianna says:

        Yeah I never paid attention to her actual age before – She’s a year younger than me though I would have guessed her several years younger. Both in maturity and looks, lol.

    • Merricat says:

      I actually agree with you on the infantilization of women. Thanks for the civil discourse.

  6. B says:

    Us Weekly isn’t reliable. Remember they reported back in March that he’d “love to have a baby with her” which was hilarious and obviously fake. And everyone already knows they’re in Ireland, so that’s not something they got exclusively.

  7. jessamine says:

    And so it begins…

  8. Case says:

    I’ll say it: I miss their pap walks. It was a strange injection of joy into a very dark world.

  9. sara says:

    I actually did think the guy in the commercial was Ben…

    Seems pretty tone deaf to sign on to hawk “natural” diamonds in the current climate when you can easily get lab created diamonds. DeBeers is blood money.

  10. Ada says:

    The end is near then.

  11. Bettyrose says:

    Good in bed? Do we really think that?

  12. Mags says:

    Ha, La Mer. I had a friend in college who used their moisturizer and kept recommending it to me. And then I looked it up and saw the price. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised because her parents not only paid for college but also law school. But yeah, 15 years on I’m still not buying it, even though Ana does have lovely skin.

  13. D says:

    Who said he was good in bed? Now we’re just making stuff up

  14. detritus says:

    I also wouldn’t use her for a prestige cream because she has visible sun damage at a very young age, but maybe that’s just me.

    Also, no crap she’s less mature. That’s what you get when you date someone significantly younger than you.

    • Shocked says:

      Exactly! Maybe Affleck should be mature enough to date someone his own age instead of someone a decade and a half younger than him..

  15. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Oh good, we’re at the bicker stage. Counting the days.

  16. lola says:

    That’s all she could get after her constant pandemic pap walks? A La Mer ad on Instagram and an ad for an unknown brand with a Ben double?! LMAO!!!

  17. Jerusha says:

    Did US hire a bunch of writers from Teen Beat?

  18. Lena says:

    Pretty tone deaf for this diamond PR company (?) to hire someone who looks like Ben. Guess she is now known as Ben Affleck’s latest piece rather than an independent actress and they are leaning into that and exploiting it. Her people should have nixed that. And in what world has anyone heard Ben good in bed? Seemed like JLo made it clear he was behind Marc and Casper and Cris.

  19. Mtec says:

    “They are like any couple and sometimes she picks dumb and immature fights with him, but he doesn’t get flustered ”—So, is this what they meant by her “vivacious personality“ that’s supposed to keep him sober? …Okay 🙄

  20. Julia says:

    I love it when magazines unironically describe women as “immature” when the dudes dating them are 15+ years older. Like, if you want to date a woman with a similar life outlook, Ben Affleck, maybe don’t date someone who’s only been able to rent a car for SEVEN YEARS?

    • Shocked says:

      Came here to say this!
      Imagine dating someone 16 yrs younger than you and complaining about their immaturity. Who’s the immature one? Try dating someone your own age.

  21. ohrhilly says:

    They exhaust me. Full stop. At this point, I’ve lost interest in anything she does and feel my love for Ben is fading. I can’t nt defend him when he does this shit.

  22. Lizzie says:

    What is with their incessant need to let the world know where they are and what they’re doing at all times? Their performative pap strolls were amusing at first but quickly became exhausting, just like the two of them. All Ana seems to have gotten out of them is schilling overpriced skincare on Instagram like some social media influencer and not, you know, an actress (when is the last time she booked a new role?) and some campaign for *diamonds* for a company no one has heard of during a worldwide pandemic when people are losing their jobs, homes, lives, etc. Her tone deaf parade continues.

    That quote is totally Ben and his team gearing up for the inevitable break up between these two. It’s funny, when they first started getting photographed together, these overly saccharine quotes and articles were put out about the two of them and how in love they were after 3 seconds of dating, but they’ve seemed to pull back a lot with those and downgraded to him being “very into” her.

  23. SilentStar says:

    Yikes, how can anyone promote natural diamonds? I think there are some ethically mined ones from northern Canada, but anywhere else I would be horrified about supporting oppressive regimes and human rights violations. Not a good look, Ana.

  24. Alyse says:

    In terms of young people being the faces of products that are obviously only in the price-range/interest of older women… at least Kaia Gerber isn’t the face of La Mer???
