Ana de Armas makes sure work isn’t the center of her life
Although de Armas has enjoyed a successful acting career, work isn’t her main focus. She told Vanity Fair‘s Sloane Crosley she prefers to talk about life and what’s going on in the world. She says she is fond of her career as an actress, but she wants to live a well-rounded life.
“I have great friends, and incredible things have happened for me here, but the lifestyle and the exposure and the constant business situations are not for me,” de Armas told Vanity Fair. “I like talking about life and art and babies and pets. Acting is what I love to do, but I can’t talk about it, not all the time.”
Ana de Armas’ message for people who doubt her ability
In her Vanity Fair interview, De Armas says she doesn’t have to prove herself to anyone. Rather, she is focused on proving to herself that she has the ability to complete a challenge.
“For anyone who ever questions or how did I get to do this or that, f*** them,” de Armas said. “They will not get to spend their New Year’s with me. They are not the people whose opinion I should care about. They are not the people I share my happiness with. I’ve never had an agenda. All I want to do is work. All I want to do is get something challenging and prove to myself that I can do it.”
Ana de Armas believes in living a full life
At one point in the interview, de Armas gets up to leave. As she is leaving, Crosley says she flings a designer bag over her shoulder. When Crosley says she would be concerned about ruining the bag, de Armas simply says, “Oh, you can’t be. Life is for living.”
