Ana de Armas reflects on paparazzi attention during Ben Affleck romance

Ana de Armas wants to be recognised for her work and not her love life. The Blonde actress opened up about the paparazzi attention she was receiving while dating her Deep Water co-star Ben Affleck back in March 2020. "I have never been someone that wants any attention that's not about my work," she told Variety. "So when the attention is not about my work, it is upsetting, and it feels disrespectful, and it feels inappropriate." The Knives Out star explained how the paparazzi and online attention caused her to be concerned over her safety. Ana said, "But, especially in this country, I don't know how you can find protection. I don't know how you can stop that from happening, other than leaving." The actress, who began her career in Cuba and has also worked in Spain confessed, "When I was living in Madrid, I was a very well-known actress and had press and paparazzi after me. It's something that you learn, unfortunately." However, the actress wants to continue to keep her private life out of the public eye and be recognised for her work as an actress.
