Ben Affleck & Ana De Armas End 1-Year Romance: Here's Why They Broke Up


Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have officially called it quits.

According to Us Weekly, the 48-year-old actor and the Knives Out star, 32, who have been quietly dating for almost a year, have decided to go their separate ways.

“The breakup was amicable, [but] she was the one who called things off,” an insider told Us of the split. “Ben and Ana were moving in different directions in their lives and stopped seeing eye to eye. The two couldn’t work through their differences and have decided to end their relationship.”

As we previously reported, Affleck and Armas, who had been filming their upcoming drama Deep Water before going public with their relationship, first sparked romance rumors when the couple was pictured and recorded on video looking quite smitten with each other during their getaway to Cuba, with bystanders claiming to have spotted the pair locking lips.

At the time, it was Us that confirmed the stars were “happy together and officially dating.”

Armas was the one to make their relationship Instagram-official last April when she posted a photo of the couple celebrating her birthday. “Cheers to another great year,” she captioned the romantic pic of Affleck wrapping his hands around her waist.

In returning to New Orleans to wrap their new movie, cameras caught the pair sharing passionate kisses with each other in between shooting takes in November.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Oscar winner had been putting a lot of his attention on his career, with an insider noting that Affleck has been “working on writing his next movie” and has been “hunkered down” on the project.
