Celebrity gossip and who’s dating who usually isn’t something we care for, let alone cover, but it recently came to our attention that Ben Affleck is dating the stunning Ana de Armas, and we must admit… we’re impressed! We can only presume rumors of their relationship have likely been circulating for weeks, but seeing as all we’ve been doing is watching movies and binging Netflix, we didn’t get the memo.
In all honestly, we have no idea if the former Batman actor and Knives Out star are dating or not, but based on the pictures below and considering their not shooting a movie together (we checked), it would appear this is legit. We’re big fans of both actors and the 14-year age gap between the two means nothing to us, but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t help at laugh at all the hilarious reactions fans posted in upon hearing the news.

Affleck has been very open as of late, discussing his struggle with substance abuse, the messy separation with actress Jennifer Garner, and his name being brought up during the “Me Too” movement, and more specifically, that he may or may not have had knowledge of the recently convicted Harvey Weinstein’s crimes. All that aside, we’re happy to hear Affleck is sober and on the right path, and let’s be honest, we highly doubt de Armas would couple-up with the two-time Oscar winner if he weren’t on the straight arrow.
de Armas is best known for her breakout role as Ryan Gosling’s holographic AI girlfriend Joi in Blade Runner 2049 (2017) and most recently for her leading in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out – which earned the actress her a best actress nomination at the 77th Golden Globes. She is also set to star alongside Daniel Craig in the recently delayed James Bond film, No Time to Die, which was pushed back to November 25, 2020.
