Ben Affleck and his new girlfriend Ana de Armas are really going for it. They’re swinging for the fences, pulling out all the stops, laying it all on the line, and mounting a full court press (as in they’re full on courting the press). Metaphorically speaking, it’s a mess. Ben and Ana are literally rubbing their new relationship in our faces. Ok, also metaphorically. No, I’m not going crazy, you’re going crazy! We’re all going crazy, and in struts Ben and Ana doing a carefully curated pap stroll/Starbucks run, complete with heads thrown back in laughter and a tiny white dog, like it’s the year 2019 and they haven’t a care in the world. To which I say, THANK GOD FOR BEN AFFLECK AND HIS 2020 DICK CHOICES. I needed this.
Ben is old school. Nobody knows how to werk a Starbucks cup quite like Ben. I highly doubt Ben’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner was solely responsible for dropping the dime to the paparazzi every time there was a need to announce The State Of The Union. Ben’s quite capable of sending out the Bat Signal himself so he can show up 10 minutes later and be all, “Did somebody call for Batman?” Even during a city-wide quarantine!
The Daily Mail says this pap stroll took place on Tuesday, “after LA Mayor Eric Garcetti issued strict guidelines for the city, asking for all bars, clubs, movie theaters, gyms and other places that hold large gatherings to close.” I guess Starbucks falls under the restaurant category and therefore is allowed to stay open for takeout, delivery and stunting only. Here’s Ben and Ana, both getting out of the car to grab a single tray of iced coffees to go even though Ana has her hands full of tiny white dog. Could she have waited in the car and practiced some social distancing? Sure, but then what would be the point?

I’m just picturing Ben sitting in the car waiting for one of the paps to confirm their scheduled time of arrival. In #theseuncertaintimes, he can’t take any chances. The streets are deserted! I hope that Starbucks closed up shop and deep-cleaned as soon as they left. As we know, these two have been traveling the past few weeks, making out at airports and shit. They might as well have just taken the coronavirus challenge. In case you forgot about their romantic trip to Cuba and Costa Rica, Ben and Ana have made sure you remember by going Instagram official via the comments on the pictures Ana previously posted of herself on the beach. Pictures that were taken by her boyfriend. DM reports:
On Wednesday, the beauty shared some stunning photos taken by her new boo during their recent getaway to Costa Rica, where they actor was seen snapping pictures of Ana along the beach.
She didn’t tag her new man but instead captioned the portraits with a sparkle and a heart emoji.
But that didn’t stop Affleck from chiming in in a cheeky manner, taking to the comments to tell his darling: ‘Photo credit pls’ along with a laughing with tears emoji.
Guys, there’s no flattening the curve on this romance! Corona who? All hats off to these thirsty legends.
