Ahead of this month’s dark comedy, War Dogs, the Cuban-Spanish actress talks to Vanity Fair about her childhood, her heritage, and her introduction to Hollywood.

AGE: 28.

PROVENANCE: Santa Cruz del Norte, Cuba.

BEHIND THE BAN: “My childhood memories are amazing, I had freedom in every way—but I see everything from a different perspective now that I live outside.”

STAMP OF SUCCESS: After attending Cuba’s National Theater School, Ana was cast in three Cuban co-productions with Spain. “My grandparents were Spanish, so I had a dual passport—it was the only way I had to get out.”

RIGHT HOOK: Director Jonathan Jakubowicz handpicked Ana to play the girlfriend of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez) in this month’s boxing biopic Hands of Stone.

COMING TO AMERICA: “Moving to L.A. was hard. I had a career in Spain, and you have to forget your ego. I was a nobody again.”

NOBODY NO MORE: Also this month, she stars alongside Jonah Hill as Miles Teller’s girlfriend in the buddy comedy War Dogs. “I know it sounds like I’m playing all these wives and girlfriends, but they’re not waiting at home. I wear the pants.”

FUTURE UNIT: Next up, Ana joins the highly anticipated Blade Runner reboot, starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. “It’s hard to explain to my parents what’s going on. You can’t compare Hollywood with Cuba. I didn’t even know I could dream this.”


This Cuban is making us wish we’d eased the embargo sooner.

Two years ago, Ana de Armas could barely speak English. Which turns out to be a hurdle when you’re trying to become a movie star in America. The 28-year-old Cuban remembers her first meetings with L.A. agents: “I was just nodding like, ‘I don’t know what you’re saying.’ Now I speak English,” she says, in English.

Of course, since she’s mastered the language, she’s hardly been in the U.S.—de Armas spent the past few years globe-trotting. First, she saw Robert De Niro and Usher share a Panamanian dance floor during filming of this summer’s boxing flick Hands of Stone; then she hit Jordan with Jonah Hill and Miles Teller for the bro-y gunrunner comedy War Dogs (also out this summer). And now she’s in Budapest with hunks present and past (Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford) for the Blade Runner sequel.

If you’re noticing a theme, yes, her films have largely been dude-dominated. But if the roles she’s playing are any indication, de Armas won’t be just another beautiful sidekick.

“They’re both the rock of their partner,” she says. “Not just the wives; they are understanding, and they forgive.” And their motto? “Don’t fuck with me.”

In Hands of Stone, a biopic out this month about the boxer Roberto Durán, the actress Ana de Armas, 28, goes mano a mano in the marital ring. “In one scene, I find Roberto asleep with all these whores, and I slap him in the face to wake him up,” recalls de Armas, who plays Durán’s wife, opposite Edgar Ramírez. “My jewelry was chunky, and I hit him with my ring by mistake. But it was fine. Edgar would throw beer bottles at me. We always kept the scene going.”

Neither does she tolerate any nonsense as the girlfriend of a man-child arms dealer (played by Miles Teller) in War Dogs, a dudes-with-guns caper also out this month. De Armas, who left her native Cuba for Spain at 18, and who only arrived in Los Angeles two years ago, is already being touted as Hollywood’s next big thing—thanks in part to her role in the much anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 cult classic, Blade Runner. But she’s not letting the accolades go to her head just yet. “I’m very impatient. I always want more. But I’m also still in the process of finding my sense of home. This business—the auditions, the anxiety—it’s all so, aaah, crazy! But I can always call my mom in Cuba to be reminded of what real life is.”

 From Cuba to Los Angeles, she’s had quite the journey

“Everything hurts!” says Ana de Armas, the saucer-eyed beauty who just got back from her daily training routine at Santa Monica’s Altus fitness studio, where she is overseen by a team of doctors, trainers, nutritionists, and chiropractors who “just kick your ass.” With only a few weeks until she leaves Los Angeles for Budapest to shoot the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, de Armas appreciates the extra motivation. “I’m the laziest person on the planet,” she says. “I’m happy just drinking wine and watching movies on my couch. I just show up to the gym because I know someone is waiting for me!”

Clad in shorts and a sheer navy V-neck tunic, de Armas is sitting in Venice Beach’s airy Rose Cafe, where she celebrated her 28th birthday this past April. She can’t reveal anything about the top-secret film project, which sees Harrison Ford reprising his original role as Rick Deckard alongside Ryan Gosling and Robin Wright, but is confident that in the hands of director Denis Villeneuve, fans have nothing to worry about. “There’s pressure because it’s a movie everyone has seen, but Denis is really a genius, and we’re working to build this character. We’re gonna do our thing.”

But there are projects that de Armas can talk about. War Dogs, starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller and directed by The Hangover guru Todd Phillips, is a testosterone-laced action flick that tells the true story of two childhood friends who become notorious arms dealers, and the story plays out like the fantasy of every unemployed stoner bro who ever owned a Scarface poster. But in a movie punctuated by high fives and fast cars, de Armas’s role as Teller’s girlfriend Iz acts as a moral lighthouse that lends the film an emotional counterweight. “Iz is strong but understanding,” she says fondly. “She has a point of view, and I thought it was really cool that she was able to say, ‘No more bullshit from you.’”
