Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas’ love was so passionate, so intense, so completely and totally real, they simply couldn’t bear to quit each other. After announcing their split last Monday (I know, it’s only been eight days of this fuckery), it was reported they were still in contact. Now a source is saying they’re still speaking “several times a day.” Because we all know the only way to get over an ex is to set zero boundaries and never ever break contact.
The sad, tragic news of Ben Affleck’s breakup with Ana de Armas was likely very devastating for some (photographers, Boston-based iced coffee chains, the makers of life-sized cardboard cutouts). But it was tempered with one moment we could all laugh at, and that was when a photographer stationed outside of Ben’s house caught someone tossing Ana’s smiling life-size cardboard cutout directly into the trash. A rainbow after the rain moment.
We didn’t know the identity of the dumper, because they were wearing a face mask, but it didn’t look like Ben, and it didn’t look like Ben’s bestie and frequent quarantine visitor Matt Damon. Some thought it was Ben’s brother Casey Affleck. Casey now says he’s not the cutout dumper.
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?!” Continue reading
This is not the news any of us want to read on a Monday. Not now, not ever. But sadly here we are. So please grab the tissues and pour out a large iced coffee from Dunkin’, then arm yourself with whatever coping skills you’ll need to deal with this devastating blow to love/celebrity pandemic photographers in Los Angeles. Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have reportedly split up after nearly a year of dating and walking in public together.
Only a love as raw and transcendent as that between Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas and Rodrigo (pictured above in July) has the power to make a couple of months feel like an eternity. BenAna spent the spring and summer reminding us daily what real commitment (to a bit) looks like, but as soon as the first chill of fall hit the air, BenAna receded from the spotlight, presumably taking to heart the world’s pleas that they get a fucking room. However, according to The Daily Mail, BenAnaRod had a brief reunion yesterday in front of Ben’s “dad pad,” with Ben greeting Ana at the front gate while wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the Cuban phrase “asere ya, gracias” which translates loosely to “my eyes are up here, thank you.”
Last month Ben Affleck was spotted lugging Ana de Armas’ shit (my bad, gorgeous A-listers like Ana don’t have “shit”, they possess “personal effects”) out of her Venice Beach home, presumably so she could move into his Pacific Palisades house. Or, as the Sun calls it, his “$20 million dad pad”. Because it has a “very kid-friendly backyard” (no orgy grotto?!).
The Sun has a bunch of helicopter pics of the “kid’s paradise”, which isn’t even a new thing; Ben purchased the home over two years ago. But now that his 31-year-old “fiancée-in-waiting” (ew) is moving in, his mansion is “news.”
