Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas Are Still Talking After Split
Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have separated, but a close source to the couple tells People that the actors still talk frequently. Is there room for a possible reconciliation? Affleck, 48, was hoping the Cuban actress, 32, was "the one." A source close to the couple told People: "Ben really wanted their relationship to work. Ana has a great energy. Ben was always very happy when Ana was around. She likes to stay healthy and inspired Ben to keep staying healthy, too."
Although they shared happy moments during almost one year together, the source said the pair also faced challenges in their "very complicated" union. "Ana is young and adventurous," the insider told People. "When she is not working, she wants to travel. She doesn't want to settle down in Los Angeles. Ben needs to live in L.A. since his kids do."
A source told Page Six the split was due to de Armas wanting to become a mom and Affleck not wanting to have more kids. Another source assured People the decision to end their relationship was "mutual and something that is completely amicable," adding "they are in different points in their lives; there is deep love and respect there."
Could love still triumph? "Ben and Ana's friendship has not ended," a source close to the pair tells People. "They still talk regularly." An insider revealed to Us Weekly: "Ben and Ana were so close to each other ... They have their issues, but still want to remain on good terms and keep a friendship." Is there hope for a movie-like happy ending? Time will tell!
