Ana de Armas addresses rumors that she’s back together with Ben Affleck


How many of you sat through Zack Synder’s Justice League this weekend? I did. I agree it’s better than the first one, but that’s about as much praise as I can give it (which isn’t much). However I can see why there is a lot of talk about the Batfleck again, Zach certainly did him justice (ha! See what I did there?) But has all the renewed interest in Ben Affleck coming back as Batman gotten the attention of his ex-girlfriend Ana de Armas? There are rumors that the former highly caffeinated, dog-walking flames might be dating again after splitting two months ago. Ana got those started when she posted the shot above to her Instagram stories. That is the same half heart necklace that Ben got so much attention for wearing back in May 2020 while they were dating. Soon everyone flooded her comment section asking about Ben. But Ana shut that news down with a follow up story that was just several versions of “Nope!”

Nothing to see here! Ana de Armas appeared to shut down rumors that she and Ben Affleck are back together two months after their split.

The Knives Out star, 32, raised eyebrows on Sunday, March 21, when she uploaded a selfie to her Instagram Stories that showed her wearing a half-heart necklace. The Oscar winner, 48, was previously spotted rocking the other half of the gold pendant in May 2020 when they were still in a relationship.

De Armas’ captionless post sparked speculation that the former couple were giving their romance another try. However, she seemingly denied that was the case on Monday, March 22, by posting a series of GIFs that read “Nope,” “No” and “I Don’t Think So” on her Instagram Stories alongside a hand making a peace sign.

CB asked last year who held the other half of the necklace and we still don’t know. There is no right or wrong way to wear them, of course, but I have never known anyone to openly display their half unless they wanted to make a statement. Those who wear them for sentimental reasons tend to tuck them inside their shirts. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Or, maybe Ana wanted the intended person to see it, she simply doesn’t want us to know who that is.

Regardless of whether she meant for it to catch this much attention, it did get Ana’s name in the headlines right when Ben was trending on Twitter. Unfortunately, all the articles mentioning the rumors and the necklace also bring up her life-sized cutout being dumped in the trash. I don’t really care one way or the other if they hook up again. I do think Ben has been working on his sobriety and that he’s been pretty successful of late. I hope that’s his focus and not who his next relationship is. Ana is lovely and very talented. I don’t really think she needs gimmicks to keep her name in the news. But I don’t think she’s above pulling gimmicks to keep her name in the news either.

    Seems to me she is (rather artlessly) saying her own heart is whole (on shirt, over heart) even if the heart he held (on necklace) is broken.
    Something stupid like that.

  2. Darla says:

    Yeah, I didn’t get this. It’s famously associated with your most high profile relationship, you pose and instagram it, then deny it means anything. No idea.

    Justice League! So, I thought it was much better, and revelatory as far as Ray Fisher, Ezra, and Affleck go. Whedon really did those three dirty. As far as Momoa , strangely, I thought his almost-unapparelled charisma was better showcased in Whedon’s version. Gal and Henry? I don’t think there was any change. It was interesting.

  3. Alissa says:

    I thought the cutout thing was hilarious, both her initially putting it up and then the subsequent dumpster throwing of it. but this just strikes me as gross and trying to get attention? I don’t know.

  4. milliemollie says:

    Lol, she started her own rumor only to deny it later?! Must have been a boring weekend for her. But she got finally attention again, so good for her?!

    • smcollins says:

      Just another page out of the celebrity handbook. Right up there with calling the paps on yourself then complaining in interviews about being “followed” by the paps. Being a celebrity and constantly chasing attention just sounds so exhausting. But I guess it works because here we are…lol

      • milliemollie says:

        Yeah, it worked,Lol, Haven’t thought about her since the end of Benana. And it looks like the tabloids didn’t care about her either until she posted that photo.

        Also did she do something to her face? She looks different. Her lips look fuller.

      • smcollins says:

        Eh, probably not. I think it’s just a combination of her hair, makeup, the way she’s posing, the angle of the photo…I wish I looked half that good in a selfie. I either get that lucky, really good shot or I look like a troll (usually the latter, which is why I rarely attempt selfies).

      • milliemollie says:

        Maybe she discovered whatever app Kourtney Kardiashan uses, because she really looks different to me in that photo.

  5. Jo says:

    Maybe she just likes the necklace?

    • Ocho says:

      Yup. Seems like she was just doing a match-y thing with her shirt.

      • maddie says:

        The heart was not on her shirt, it was an animated gif/sticker.

        She followed up on her Instagram page with a video of a famous Marilyn Monroe scene singing no, no, no to a lot of men before she starts Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend.

        I read she’s playing Monroe in an upcoming movie, but girl, please.

  6. Susan says:

    Gotta hand it to these two, they know how to keep their names in the news. While I am mostly annoyed with her thirstiness, there is a piece of me that respects her game. Ha. Well played Ana.

  7. Coolitude says:

    She is working on The Grey Man so if she wants attention in the News… Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Rege are there. She can easily find a way

  8. Case says:

    I saw this happen in realtime on Insta and couldn’t wait to talk about it, lol. I feel like if I were her I would’ve gotten rid of the necklace. But I guess she just likes it and wants to continue wearing it!

  9. Kristen says:

    That haircut is ridiculously good on her.

  10. LaurenMichelle says:

    I wanna know why they broke up!

  11. The Recluse says:

    She is beginning to come across as ‘thirsty’. I liked her in Knives Out, but this is beginning to be too much exposure.

  12. Lizzie says:

    The other half of the necklace belongs to her stylist (Karla Welch) who gifted/gave it to her last year. One of Ana’s fan accounts posted about it. I thought Ana’s reaction to the rumor was a little funny and definitely not how someone would respond to it if their break up was amicable as it was first claimed.

  13. Carolnr says:

    Deep Water is coming out in January 2022 now. I think we are going to see alot of ” Ana & Ben could get back together” to promote that movie as much as they can.
