Some hot and heavy pairs break up when September interrupts their summer glow. For Ben Affleck and Ana de Aramas, it is a matter of reality ruining their epistemic love affair.
“Quarantine was unique because they had downtime and actually had time to spend each other at home,” a source who knew Affleck and de Aramas was quoted as saying by the Post. “But once work took place, things started changing.”
De Aramas signed on for the film “The Gray Man” alongside Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling, while Affleck would be the next star in the adaptation of George Clooney’s book, “The Tender Bar”.
After months of love-filled lockdowns – PDA-filled dog walks and coffee runs in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood – it was reported this week that the two called it quits.

Rumors first erupted when they did not spend holidays together and de Armas went home to Havana, Cuba.
For de Armas, LA is only a place for work. He owns a house in Cuba, where his family still lives and according to friends he considers his home.
“He is here for work reasons; Like all actors, she lives wherever she works, ”said one de Armas.
“Ana decides she doesn’t want to live in LA and Ben knows Affleck’s three young children with Jennifer Garner.” “Their priority lies in LA. They are in different places [in their lives]. “
There was also the issue that – as Page Six pointed out – De Aramas, 32, wants to have children of his own, while, friends said, there is no way, Affleck, 48, wants more children.

“Ana is fantastic and the children love her. I think any setup is tough for anyone to get into a relationship like this, ”said the source who knows the couple.

In February 2020 he told The New York Times: “I started drinking every day. I came home from work and I started drinking and I sat there drinking until I passed on the couch, ”assuming that a public affair at a Halloween party in 2019 was embarrassing for him and his children Was. .
But insiders also say that, despite his previous substance-issues, Affleck is a devoted, involved father.
They also say that Garner, who is described as a fiercely protective mother, is approved of De Aramas, as he seemed to keep Affleck in a similar fashion.
Affleck and De Aramas met on the set of the thriller “Deep Water”, which was filmed in 2019, but its release date was pushed into the summer of 2021. He was spotted on a romantic getaway to Cuba in March 2020 before heading to Costa Rica and then heading. La just before the first lockdown starts.
The epidemic helped him grow quickly as a source close to him told the Post at the time: “Ben was on set [of ‘The Last Duel’] . . . And Ana was on a world tour [for the James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’].
“Spending so much time together is a real blessing.”
D’Armus was seen in photographs of what looked like an engagement ring, but was revealed to be a prelude to “Deep Water”.
D’Armus moved into the actor’s Brentwood home and in June, Cheekley planted a cardboard cutout of his own on his lawn – reportedly as a way to troll paparazzi.
This week, a masked man who resembled Affleck’s actor brother, Casey Affleck, threw the cutout into the trash can. Casey denied that it was him, but told Golmaal’s “Entertainment Tonight”:
“The reality is, I think this year has really been tough on people in relationships… I think Ana is just the sweetest, funniest, smartest, most attractive person. I think she’s got someone else. There will be no problem in meeting. “
Casey, who is divorced, said: “And I’ll take Ben up there, but I don’t think he’ll have a problem.” They would like my advice, ‘Yes, think long and hard [the decision to break up], Because quarantine is not fun if you are single. ‘”
Even though D’Aramas has moved out and is said to be looking for his own home-out-of-Cuba in West Hollywood, the sources who know him and Affleck feel they can’t lose all hope Huh.
“They had a really solid relationship and are really upset that they came to a place where they needed to break up,” the source said. “There’s a lot of love.” They were really very nice to each other and I think that friendship will have to last. “
