Ana de Armas spent the holiday in Cuba without Ben Affleck and she has a new haircut


First of all, thanks to Lainey Gossip for covering this because I likely wouldn’t have seen it otherwise. Also, I don’t know how much I care about Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas at this point. They were so thirsty early in the pandemic and that was fun for a while, but then they went dark and I was fine with that too. I liked the break from them, especially because they wore masks inconsistently and Anna in particular didn’t seem to be wearing masks or social distancing.

I guess I’m not surprised that Anna traveled to Cuba for the holidays to see a friend and her baby. She’s possibly family, like a cousin. Anna just has one brother, an artist named Javier. As Lainey mentions, the hospitals in LA are so full they’re turning people away and advising EMTs not to bring all patients in, but here’s Anna traveling to another country. At least she’s not on vacation I guess. She has shown us who she is and so has Ben. They’re a good match.

Anna also has a new haircut. I like it! I had a pageboy like this in the 90s when I wanted to look like Agent Scully. The question is whether this haircut is a sign that Anna and Ben are having trouble. She presumably traveled without him, but there’s a pandemic on and he may be smarter than she is about it, or at least about the optics. (Plus as some of you mentioned, Ben was probably with his kids.) She did move in with Ben late last year and that can put a strain on things, but she’s also an actress. It’s possible her new hair is for a role or that she just wanted a change after wrapping filming. We just heard she got a part on a film with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans (again). It’s Ben though, of course he’s a moody bastard who runs hot and cold. He’s not going to break up with Anna, he’ll just make a bunch of passive aggressive moves, pull away and then suck her back in. That’s how narcissists work.

Did you see these photos of Ben trying to hold Dunkin Donuts delivery and a package at the same time? This is me every morning with my coffee mug and five things I need to bring into my office.

    I like her haircut it’s cute, and she has incredible bone structure. So it really makes her cheekbones pop. I got my first haircut in a year in November. It was such a wonderful feeling of change!

  2. Darla says:

    Maybe he spent it with his kids. IF they’re done (i doubt it) the set of The Gray Man is going to be a gossip hot spot though.

  3. Detnow359 says:

    I honestly didn’t know who she was prior to this relationship but it certainly has elevated her status. Ben has kids so I’m guessing he spent time with his kids during the holidays. If I’m Jennifer seeing the GF is out traveling I would definitely tell Ben to keep her away from my kids though

    I do like the hair.

  4. B says:

    Why wouldn’t she spend Xmas her own family?
    She looks cute with short hair!

  5. megs283 says:

    I have a major soft spot for Ana because a lovely, kind coworker looks very similar.

  6. Lillyfromlilooet says:

    I am a fan of people switching up style, so go her. That said, a new haircut and a major holiday apart are Deadly Tells…but also two data points. Sometimes also when people are going through a transition to the next stage of a relationship, more likely to winding down–one party will make some physical change, like a haircut, or a tattoo, hair color, or something–when they aren’t even aware why yet.

    I wish Ben well, but I think he’s kind of a black hole and Ana’s too young to have to take on his weirdness.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, I’m with you. an Xmas/NYE trip alone and a new haircut? first think I thought was “uh oh, trouble in pandemic-paradise for these two”.

      her cut is cute though.

  7. tcbc says:

    The haircut makes her look like an older woman with cheek implants. The difference between good bone structure and great bone structure is that good isn’t enough to pull off very short hair – not everyone is Halle Berry or Natalie Portman.

    Also this was completely selfish but after her antics this summer I am not surprised.

    My bet is Ben is with his children because there would have been some shady story from People Magazine otherwise.

  8. Darren says:

    Isn’t she Cuban. Doesn’t seem strange for her to desire to see family.
    Ben has kids in the US.
    And are there not still restrictions on US citizens visiting Cuba ?

  9. lola says:

    I’m convinced that Ben’s “sources” would start to bad mouth Ana before an official break up and that hasn’t happened (yet).
    Pandemic aside, why wouldn’t they spend the holidays with their own families.

  10. Jessie says:

    She owns a home there, and Cuba has managed the pandemic incredibly well, with public health, contact tracing, and vaccine development much more under control than the US. This is hardly the same as celebs going on vacation.

  11. ASHBY says:

    YIKES…..The first thing that comes to mind when I see her new haircut is a 45 year old school teacher, it ages her by at least a decade easily in my opinion.

    From what I can see, she has a nice bone structure and great skin, it seems to me that she pays a lot more attention to having good skin by trying to live a very healthy lifestyle and focusing on skin care over covering up bad & damaged skin with snow shovels worth of make -up like say – a Kardashian.

    Reminds me of European women friends I have, they are laser focused on being natural beauties with healthy lifestyles and excellent skin care routines, they spend the least possible amount of money on make-up and a lot more on quality skin care products.

      I did that same haircut at her age… it really made me look like a Karen. I grew it out immediately.

  12. Suze says:

    She and Chris Evans had such good chemistry in Knives Out, I’m excited to watch their next project. Add in Ryan Gosling, and it gets even better!

    As for the hair, I like it! As others have pointed out she’s got great bone structure, it makes her cheekbones and eyes really pop.

    I want those pants!!
