Ana de Armas is enjoying steady success in her career as an actress. Many recognized her for her role in the 2019 American mystery film Knives Out, which she almost turned down.
Ana de Armas is a good actress, no doubt about that. And she wants the people to also acknowledge that. In fact, she nearly bailed on her role for Knives Out due to a tiny detail, which was a big deal to her.
Ana de Armas almost bailed out Knives Out
Knives Out was a huge hit thanks to its beautiful story and a stellar cast, including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, Ana de Armas, and more. However, de Armas almost walked out of the project because she was unsure about it.
De Armas said she always pay attention to the description. And she didn’t know who did it, but when she read the description, her initial reaction was, “Oh no, I’m not doing this!”
De Armas played the protagonist in the movie named Martha. She was Harlan Thrombey’s (Plummer) nurse who thought she killed him and was surprising named as his inheritor.
“What do you mean—caretaker, Latina, pretty?’ I’m very proud of being Cuban and being Latina and I will play the most Latina any Latina has ever played Latina,” de Armas said per Cinema Blend after reading the description.
“But it also doesn’t interest me that much, all the time.”
De Armas added that it gets very boring, and she wants to do other things. Even if she’s a Latina, not all Latinas are the same, and she wants to be a universal actress.
“I want to think and believe that I can play anybody, anywhere in the world because the stories I want to tell are universal. I want to be able to tell any story,” she added.
Ana cried after Marilyn Monroe transformation
Ana de Armas stars with Craig David in No Time To Die. The Bond Girl will also get to play as Marilyn Monroe in the biopic Blonde.
Ben Affleck’s girlfriend shared that she became emotional when she saw her full transformation as Monroe. She couldn’t believe the reflection she saw in the mirror because she looked very different, and it made her cry.
De Armas said she was completely transformed. She considered it one of the most beautiful things about acting when one becomes someone else.
Affleck and de Armas’ relationship
Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas’ relationship is getting very serious. In fact, he already introduced her to his three kids with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
One tabloid claimed Affleck was just waiting for de Armas to move with him in his $20 million-mansion. An insider also alleged that they would soon announce their engagement.
