Ana de Armas Has a New Man Too

As the Ben Affleck–Jennifer Lopez reunion continues apace, Affleck’s most recent ex, Ana de Armas, is moving on with a new beau. And he’s not an actor.

De Armas is reportedly dating 37-year-old Paul Boukadakis and has been for a few months. Page Six reports that de Armas has already met members of his family, and according to its source, “Paul and Ana were introduced through friends. He is based in Austin, but splits his time between Texas and Santa Monica. He has been spending a lot of time with Ana before she left the U.S. to film her new movie.”

Being introduced by a friend is a classic—some might say even old-fashioned—meet-cute, especially when you consider that Boukadakis is an executive at dating app Tinder. The V.P., who has also acted in and produced short films, was apparently a founder at a company called Wheel, which Tinder bought a few years back to “add video collaboration” to its offerings. Not entirely sure what that means, though we can guess why de Armas might not be so keen on using dating apps herself, especially ones with video. Just before he got back with Lopez, Affleck sent a video to a match on Raya, and her TikTok about it went viral

Though de Armas hasn’t spoken publicly about her new relationship, she did seemingly confirm in March that she was not back together with Affleck. The two actors met on a movie set in early 2020 and spent most of the pandemic together in Los Angeles but split amicably in early 2021.

And now she’s back on set with a whole host of hunks. She’s the lead in the Russo Brothers’ upcoming spy thriller The Gray Man, which also stars Regé-Jean Page, Ryan Gosling, and Chris Evans. It’s good to be Ana de Armas.
