Ben Affleck was, allegedly, hurt and jealous after seeing his girlfriend, Ana de Armas kiss another man.
Woman’s Day published the misleading headline this week as if to say that de Armas was cheating on Ben Affleck. But upon closer inspection, the man that the Cuban actress kissed is a model, who joined her for a photoshoot.
Still, a source for the tabloid insisted that Affleck was a bit hurt especially since the model is more age-appropriate for de Armas.
“Ben’s only human and seeing another guy with his paws all over his girlfriend is never easy. Especially when it comes to Ana. What they have is still fairly new, and she is almost 20 years his junior,” the source said.
Ben Affleck addiction took a toll on his self-esteem
The source they preyed on Affleck’s addiction and struggles with sobriety. They claimed that even though the actor still has a somewhat healthy ego, his addiction has certainly taken a toll on his self-esteem.
“He worries that Ana will leave him. Her star is on the rise and men much younger than him would die to date her,” the source said.
However, it is important to note that de Armas shared a steamy kiss with the male model for a commercial. And the so-called steamy kiss didn’t happen in real life.
It is also important to note that Affleck is a professional actor, and he’s been in the industry for decades. As such, he surely knows how to separate his personal life from his professional life.
It would be unfair to claim that Ben Affleck is jealous of de Armas’ steamy kiss with the model when he also kisses his co-stars if the script calls for it.
The tabloid also seemingly made a rude statement about Affleck and de Armas’ age gap by saying that the actor isn’t age-appropriate for the actress.
Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas’ relationship falling apart due to distance
The tabloids have been concocting dubious claims about Affleck and de Armas in recent weeks. OK! magazine recently claimed that the couple is struggling to make their relationship work because they’re away from each other.
Affleck is in Ireland right now for the filming of his upcoming movie with Matt Damon.
Once again, it is important to note that Ben Affleck and de Armas are both professionals. As such, it’s unlikely for their relationship to fall apart just because they need to work in a different country.
