Ana de Armas, 33, is ‘dating’ Tinder exec Paul Boukadakis, 37… after her ex Ben Affleck, 48, reunited with his former fiancee Jennifer Lopez, 51
Ana de Armas of Knives Out fame has a new boyfriend.
The Cuban born actress, 33, has been dating Tinder exec Paul Boukadakis, 37, for the ‘past several months,’ according to PageSix.
This comes just as Ana’s ex Ben Affleck, 48, was seen kissing his former fiancee Jennifer Lopez, 51, in Malibu as her kids, twins Max and Emme, and her sister Lynda Lopez were nearby. Ben and Jennifer have been seeing each other since April.

It was also claimed Ana has already met Paul’s family members.
‘Paul and Ana were introduced through friends,’ a source told PageSix. ‘He is based in Austin, [Texas], but splits his time between Texas and Santa Monica [California]. He has been spending a lot of time with Ana before she left the US to film her new movie.’
Ana has a home in Venice Beach, California near Santa Monica. Her next film is The Gray Man with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
Ben and Ana split earlier this year after making the thriller Deep Water in 2020.
And now Ben has gotten back together with his Gigli co-star Jennifer. Last week it was claimed Lopez and Affleck are already discussing ‘settling down.’

The former couple recently rekindled their romance after they first dated in 2002 – where they got engaged after two months of dating, and split 18 months later – and sources have now said the pair are so close that friends wouldn’t be surprised if another ‘quickie engagement’ was on the cards.
An insider said: ‘Jen’s cloud nine – she and Ben are well and truly back on. Despite all those years apart, their feelings have come rushing back. It all feels so natural.
‘After the heartache she’s been through over the last few months, Jen’s admitted Ben has really helped her heal and his doting on her, which has given her faith in a happily ever after.

‘They’ve already spoken about the future and settling down, which she’s full of joy and excitement about. Friends wouldn’t be surprised if they have a quickie engagement or even a wedding like they’d once planned.’
The singer and actress is said to be convinced she and Ben are ‘meant to be’ after their paths crossed again this year following her split from ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez and his separation from de Armas.
The source added: ‘Jen truly believes that all paths have led to this one and that she and Ben are meant to be. It really is like a movie plot and she’s invested in their fairy tale.

‘They’ve spent a lot of time going over mistakes they made the first time and they are making a conscious effort not to let outside influences affect their relationship again. They’ve agreed not to speak about each other in interviews and generally keep a lower profile than they did the first time around.’
And the couple still have ‘chemistry’ together, and now want to start the ‘life they’d always planned together’.
Speaking to Closer magazine, the insider said: ‘They’ve both been through a lot over the last two decades but, ultimately, they never lost their chemistry. They are both hoping that after reuniting all these years later, they can look forward to the life they’d always planned together.’
