An insider for The Sun newspaper said that the actor became an unwelcome guest at the premiere due to his lack of restraint in his feelings for Ana de Armas. He called Affleck’s eventual appearance “a disaster” because he and Ana would “draw all the attention” and become more talked about than the film itself. According to the source, the problem is that Affleck and de Armas often show feelings in public and cannot tear themselves away from each other.
And there is a lot of evidence for this. Since the beginning of the novel, the paparazzi have flooded the Internet with their romantic pictures. Ben and Ana kiss at home, on the beach, on city streets, in a restaurant, and even while walking with friends.
