Ana de Armas is selling Netflix’s The Grey Man on this Elle Journal cowl profile. I used to be involved that we had already began the Blonde promotion, however this isn’t it. Ana’s Elle editorial is fairly and lowkey. It strikes me that she’s really not a “excessive trend” particular person, and she or he appears to desire doing photoshoots that are both horny or undone/regular-person stuff. I imply, Ana is gorgeous and she or he doesn’t have to put on the newest tendencies and such. I loved her Elle interview, she’s actually humorous and she or he’s fairly trustworthy about most issues. Some highlights:
All the gossip about her cut up with Ben Affleck. “[The gossip was] horrible. Yeah, which is nice. That’s one of many explanation why I left L.A.”
The paparazzi in LA: “Going by means of it [myself] confirmed my ideas about, ‘This isn’t the place for me to be.’ It turned somewhat bit an excessive amount of. There’s no escape. There’s no manner out.” In Los Angeles, she provides, “it’s all the time the sensation of one thing that you just don’t have, one thing lacking. It’s a metropolis that retains you anxious.”
She by no means thought she’d be an motion actor: “The reality is, I by no means thought I used to be going to be an motion actor. It wasn’t my factor… You need to watch out, as a result of it’s not what I wish to put the deal with. This isn’t the place I’m essentially the most comfy, to be trustworthy, as a result of I really feel ridiculous. And it takes numerous work.”
Whether or not she likes residing in America, in New York: “I do,” she says. “Typically… Typically I do; typically I miss Europe. I really feel typically that I’m not a part of the Cuban artist neighborhood, after which I used to be in Spain and I really feel like I’m not a part of the neighborhood there—particularly as a result of in Spain, I did extra TV than films. After which I’m right here, and I really feel like I’m not there but both. You understand? Am I a part of the neighborhood? I barely know anyone.”
Her feminism: “I grew up in essentially the most macho-man tradition, and on the similar time, Cuba is simply so free in so many different ways in which typically I’m shocked with the issues that I hear which can be nonetheless conversations on this nation. I’m like, ‘We’re nonetheless right here?’”
No social media: “I deleted Twitter years in the past. I’ve barely been on Instagram for nearly a 12 months.” And no secret Instagram accounts–no secret something.
She drank Fireballs on her thirty fourth birthday: “It was on the seashore and [there was] a hearth pit, and we had been working till virtually 1 a.m. On the finish, I stated, ‘Okay. That is my birthday, so I would like a Fireball.’” Sure, she lately found shot glasses of Fireballs—which she understands most People affiliate with college-era binge ingesting—and thinks they’re the most effective factor she’s ever had. “I had everyone with me: my man, my canines, Chris and the crew. I wasn’t dwelling having a romantic dinner; I used to be on set with my individuals doing what I like and on the seashore and having a shot of Fireball. In order that was my thirty fourth birthday. And it’s the happiest I’ve been.”
The discuss of Fireballs actually gave me an surprising hit of nostalgia. I forgot about Fireballs and I haven’t had one since faculty. It’s humorous that Fireballs are her favourite drink now. I additionally felt somewhat bit sorry for her when she talked about not feeling like a part of the Cuban artist neighborhood and probably not being a part of the Spanish arts neighborhood when she lived in Spain both. She’s sort of a displaced artist, together with her toes in numerous worlds, making an attempt to determine the place she actually suits. It’s additionally clear that each one of her coworkers love her too – this piece was stuffed with her costars speaking her up and being impressed by her. Anyway, I’m glad she’s out of LA – that relationship with Ben Affleck may have actually broken her profession. She acquired out free and clear and now they’ve each moved on with way more appropriate companions.
