Ana de Armas Net Worth 2022: Biography Career Earnings
Cuban-Spanish actress Ana de Armas has a $6 million fortune. After starting out in Cuba, Ana made her way to Spain, where she played in the hit teen drama “El Internado.” Her portrayal of Carolina Leal Solis on The Boarding School from 2007 to 2010 is widely regarded as one of her earliest and most memorable roles. From 2010 to 2011, Ana de Armas played Nerea on the Spanish-language TV series Hispania, la leyenda.
In 2006, she made her cinematic debut in Virgin Rose, and since then she has appeared in Madrigal, Sex, Party and Lies, Blind Alley, Faraday, Por un punado de besos, Knock Knock, Anabel, Exposed, Hands of Stone, War Dogs, Overdrive, and Blade Runner 2049, among many more. After being married to Marc Clotet from 2011 to 2013, Ana de Armas relocated to Los Angeles in 2014. She was considered for Best Supporting Actress at the 2018 Saturn Awards for her work in Blade Runner 2049.
As per her birth date, De Armas is 30 years old. Her parents, Ramón and Ana, brought her up in the northern city of Santa Cruz del Norte. Her mother worked in human resources for the Ministry of Education, while her father was a teacher, principal, bank manager, and deputy mayor of the town when she was growing up. Though she recalls experiencing gasoline shortages, food rationing, and electrical blackouts while growing up in Cuba with her older brother Javier,
she has typically portrayed her childhood as joyful. Since her family did not have a video or DVD player, De Armas first saw Hollywood films in her neighbor’s apartment, when she made the life-changing decision that she wanted to be an actress. In age 14, she started performing at the Havana National Theatre in Cuba, and she went on to star in three films shot there.
The Cuban movies “El edén perdido,” “Una rose de Francia,” and “Madrigal” all featured de Armas in supporting roles. She met her future Spanish agent, Juan Lanja, on a promotional trip to Spain for one of the films she was promoting. When de Armas was 18 years old, she uprooted to Madrid, Spain, to further her acting career. After only two weeks in the country, she auditioned for casting director Luis san Narciso, who had seen her in “Una rose de Francia.”
He eventually found a role for her in “El Internado,” a drama for young adults. From 2007 through 2010, De Armas portrayed Carolina on the show for a total of six seasons. The show, which was filmed at a fictional boarding school, shot to fame in Spain. At the same period, in 2009, she had a leading role in the coming-of-age comedy “Mentiras y Gordas.”
Despite the show’s success, de Armas begged to be written out of the series in its second-to-last season out of fear that she was being typecast in predominantly teenage parts. Following this, De Armas spent a few months in New York City studying the English language. She went back to her homeland to star in the historical drama series Hispania, for which she shot seventeen episodes. Her subsequent cinematic roles include Antonio Trashorra’s “El callejón” (2011) and “Anabel” (2015), after her involvement on that series ended in 2011.
When this phase of her career ended, de Armas’s acting career hit something of a lull. She began taking acting classes at a Madrid theatre, and after signing with a Hollywood agent, relocated to the city of angels in 2014. She didn’t know much English and had almost no name recognition in the United States, so De Armas says she had to start her acting career from scratch when she moved to LA. After arriving, she studied English intensively for four months.
In 2015’s “Knock Knock,” she made her Hollywood debut with Keanu Reeves. The next year, in 2016, Reeves offered her a part in the suspense film he was creating called “Exposed.” Often learning her lines phonetically, she also made appearances in “War Dogs” and “Hands of Stone” that same year. In 2017, de Armas scored a supporting part in the critically acclaimed sequel “Blade Runner 2049.” In addition, she made an appearance in the adrenaline-pumping thriller “Overdrive.” The next year, she starred in “Corazón,” a medical drama produced with support from the Montefiore Medical Center to promote organ donation.
In 2019, De Armas got her big break in Hollywood when she played a leading role in the ensemble picture “Knives Out.” She received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical and universal acclaim from critics. She was also named Best Supporting Actress at the Saturn Awards. It was a busy year for de Armas in the movies: 2020 saw her in “The Informer,” “The Night Clerk,” “Sergio,” and “Wasp Network.”

All four of her roles were well received. She was cast as Daniel Craig’s Bond girl in the 2021 film “No Time to Die.” Her role as a Cuban CIA spy was created especially for de Armas. After that, De Armas was cast in the film adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s sensual suspense novel Deep Water. She’s in the cast as Ben Affleck’s antagonist. She was also cast as Marilyn Monroe in the film “Blonde,” a biopic based on Monroe’s life and adapted from Joyce Carol Oates’ novel of the same name.
During the middle of 2010, de Armas started dating the Spanish actor Marc Clotet. In July of 2011, the happy couple tied the knot on the Costa Brava. About two years later, in 2013, they decided to separate. She started dating talent agent Franklin Latt in the beginning of 2015, and they dated until the end of 2016, when they became engaged briefly.
It was on the filming of “Deep Water” in late 2019 that she first met American actor Ben Affleck. Beginning in early 2020 and ending in early 2021, they were a couple.
