AceShowbiz – Ana de Armas is full of praises for her new boyfriend Ben Affleck. Days after she was spotted cozying up to her “Deep Water” co-star while enjoying a getaway trip together in both Cuba and Costa Rica, the “Knives Out” actress gushed over his “infinite talent” in a new magazine interview.
As she graced the April issue’s cover of Vogue Spain, the 31-year-old opened up about working together with the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” actor. “The first time we read the scenes together, it became pretty clear he was going to do something exceptional with a very complex role,” she raved.
“His character is the engine of the story and requires him to move between tragedy and irony or between realism and the most absurd comedy,” the ex-wife of Spanish actor Marc Clotet continued. “Not only does he know how to do it with ease, he also manages to surprise you in every shot. His talent is infinite.”
Elsewhere in the interview, de Armas looked back at gaining fame through Spanish horror series “El Internado“. She recalled, “When the series first became successful, we couldn’t even walk down the street.” She added that co-star Elena Furiase, “who has been used to fame all her life, took my hand and knew how to get around an uncomfortable question or a photographer following me.”
The actress who will be seen as Bond girl in “No Time to Die” went on to admit she still feels “indebted” to Elena’s family for being there for her during the transition period. “[Elena’s] mother, Lolita, was a mother to me too,” she spilled. “The days that I was sad, crying and missing my parents in Cuba, she would throw the three of us into bed and make me laugh.”
De Armas has sparked dating rumors with Affleck after they filmed “Deep Water” together. The two were spotted vacationing together in her hometown of Havana earlier this March. One onlooker identified as Luz, told E! News when she saw them at the Cuban Art Factory, the pair “looked like good friends.”
The two added more fuel to their romance rumors days later when they were caught cozying up to each other in Costa Rica. An eyewitness insisted to E! News that they are “without a doubt a couple,” adding that they “have been kissing, cuddling up together and putting their arms around each other a lot. They look at each other adoringly and like taking pictures of each other.”
