Ana de Armas Says Romance With Ben Affleck Made Her Leave LA

Ana de Armas finds the constant media attention her relationship with Ben Affleck received so ‘terrible’ that it moved her.

“That’s one of the reasons I left LA,” the “Blonde” actress, 34, said of the couple’s constant paparazzi photos in Elle’s August 2022 cover story.

De Armas, who lived in the City of Angels for seven years, had seen firsthand how some of her friends gained public attention, but experiencing it confirmed her thoughts about it.

“This is not the place for me to be,” she told herself.

“It got a bit too much. There is no escape. There is no way out.”

The “Knives Out” actress said the city kept her “anxious” because in LA there is “always the feeling of something you don’t have, that something is missing.”

To be

De Armas dated Affleck, 49, during the coronavirus pandemic and the former couple went into quarantine together. During this time, they were often photographed walking their dogs or taking coffee walks.

By January 2021, however, the “Deep Water” co-stars had called it quits after nearly a year together.

A source close to the actors told Vidak For Congress at the time: “There is still a lot of love between the two. The split is as amicable as it gets.”

It’s unclear where the Armas moved to after her split from Affleck.

An insider then said the split was due to De Armas and Affleck being in “different places” in their lives and that the “Armageddon” star would not commit to having more children.”

He shares 16-year-old daughter Violet, 13-year-old daughter Seraphina and 10-year-old son Samuel with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

After Affleck and the Armas broke up, the ‘Argo’ director went on to have another high-profile relationship, rekindling his romance with Jennifer Lopez. They got engaged – for the second time – in April 2022.

Meanwhile, the Armas moved on with Tinder exec Paul Boukadakis.

However, the couple, who have been dating for a year, have not been able to avoid the dad either. In December 2021, they were photographed kissing while walking in LA.

While it’s unclear where De Armas moved to, Vidak For Congress previously reported that Boukadakis splits his time between Texas and Santa Monica, California.
