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

The following feature appears in the August 2016 issue of NYLON.

“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.’”
