Entertainment And News

We've heard Ben Affleck talk a lot about ex Jennifer Garner lately, but could there be another woman on his mind? It seems totally possible. 

Reportedly, Affleck is dating his Deep Water costar Ana de Armas, and they were seen together in Havana looking pretty cozy last week.

So who is Ana de Armas, the woman who could be Affleck's current object of affection? Here's everything we know about her — and their potential relationship.

1. Affleck and de Armas were seen hanging out in Cuba last week. 

Last week, Affleck and de Armas were seen in Havana — where de Armas owns a home — shopping, eating out at restaurants, and visiting with friends, and they were even seen exhibiting a lot of PDA before they boarded their private flight out on Saturday.

“They were beaming. I saw Ana grab Ben’s arm as they walked out together, they looked super happy — she’s absolutely stunning!” an onlooker said. “I totally think they’re dating.”

2. They've also been seen together in New Orleans.

When they were filming a movie together in New Orleans earlier this year, it seemed like the possible couple was spending a lot of their downtime together off set, too. In January, fans spotted them out and about, with Affleck reportedly "spitting game" at de Armas in Spanish, so it certainly seems like this relationship may have been in the works for weeks now. 

3. But who is de Armas? She's a 31-year-old actress. 

Ana de Armas is best known for her acting career, and if her recent success is any indication, it seems like that career may be about to blow up. She was recently seen in Knives Out, and she'll be starring alongside Daniel Craig in No Time To Die later this year. She's also set to play Marilyn Monroe in Blonde, which is based on a fictional novel by Joyce Carol Oates about what the legendary star's personal life might have been like.

4. She was recently on the cover of Vanity Fair

Posing for the March 2020 cover of Vanity Fair, de Armas admitted that while she loves acting, she doesn't love Hollywood and all of the exposure that comes with it ... which may make a relationship with a high profile celeb like Affleck a bit tricky.

“I have great friends, and incredible things have happened for me here, but the lifestyle and the exposure and the constant business situations are not for me," she said. "I like talking about life and art and babies and pets. Acting is what I love to do, but I can’t talk about it, not all the time.”

5. Affleck and de Armas are set to play husband and wife in Deep Water

Deep Water, a psychological thriller that stars Affleck and de Armas as Melinda and Vic Van Allen, is now in post-production and is expected to be released later this year. The movie, which is based on Patricia Highsmith's book by the same name, is about a couple who has fallen out of love with each other and the deadly tricks they play on each other. Jacob Elordi, Rachel Blanchard, and Tracy Letts also star.

6. Recently, Affleck admitted his divorce from Jennifer Garner was his "biggest regret." 

Affleck made headlines in February when he admitted in an interview that he regrets his divorce from Garner and the way that his drinking impacted their marriage.

“The biggest regret of my life is this divorce,” he said at the time. “Shame is really toxic. There is no positive byproduct of shame. It’s just stewing in a toxic, hideous feeling of low self-worth and self-loathing.”

Only time will tell if Affleck and de Armas are truly dating, but at this point, it seems like they've definitely been spending a lot of time together.
