Where were you when you heard the news Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas were through? I was on my phone. And I wasn’t the only one, apparently. A source told People that BenAna actually broke things off over the phone. After almost a year! Damn. Was it at least on FaceTime? Or was it like one of those phone calls with my mom where I’m only half-listening and playing Spider Solitaire and she screams, “Why do I hear clicking?!”
Another source tells People that BenAna was having lots of big discussions about the future (and reportedly clashing over issues like having kids and location, location, location), and “they decided together to break up.” But earlier in the week, other sources told People it was Ana who swung the ax. Pick a lane, People!
Yet another fucking source told People that 32-year-old Ana and 48-year old Ben are still friends:
“Ben and Ana’s friendship has not ended,” a source close to the pair tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “They still talk regularly.”
Since parting ways, “he has been with the kids a lot,” the source says. “Ben continues to work on himself.”
Methinks “Ben working on himself” is going to be a lifelong career. Me also thinks Ana got what she came for: more fame, baybaaay!
I don’t know if exes can successfully be friends right after a breakup, but if the pandemic ends before the summer (snort) BenAna may be forced to do in-person press together for their movie, Deep Water. It’s about a couple who
find themselves stranded in the ocean surrounded by sharks open up their marriage and play sexy mind games with each other. Please, tell me that Cardboard Cutout Ana is the third.
