Ana de Armas is opening up about what life has been like during the pandemic and also how she has been affected by fame.
The 32-year-old Knives Out actress chatted with Flaunt for the mag’s new cover story, which you can check out now on their site!
Ana has been in Los Angeles alongside boyfriend Ben Affleck during the lockdown, but she says she misses her family in Cuba.
“It’s been so hard not to see them,” Ana said. She also told the mag that she doesn’t want to stay in L.A forever. She added, “It’s a lot, or maybe it’s just because I miss Cuba too much or something. It’s a different experience for me to be in LA.”
Ana told the mag that she’d rather have privacy than fame.
“It’s funny as an actor because you do what you do and you don’t think of the consequences of your job and then all of a sudden you are in the spotlight and you realize ‘Oh this is not what I wanted!’ [Fame] to me, is not the most exciting thing about my job, it never has been, at all. It is just a consequence of my job,” Ana said.
Ana will be playing Marilyn Monroe in the movie Blonde and she said, “All that fame and that exposure was also [Marilyn’s] worst nightmare and it grew in me a lot of empathy for her and what she was going through. It was a really intense time for her.”
