Ana de Armas is a rising star with several new releases and a couple more films set to drop, including the upcoming Marilyn Monroe–inspired film Blonde.
With three weeks until the Blonde premiere on Netflix, the Cuban–Spanish actress was spotted catching a flight out of New York City alongside her boyfriend Paul Boukadakis.
The couple, who have been dating for about a year and a half, have made an effort to keep their romance out of the public eye as much as possible, partly due to all the attention that her previous relationship with Ben Affleck garnered during their year together.

De Armas, 34, looked stylish for her travel day decked out in a white jumpsuit and black loafers while carrying a Louis Vuitton bag.
In an added touch, she decided to cuff the bottom of each pant leg up a few inches above her ankles, which revealed that she opted to go sockless.
She wasn’t easily recognizable by wearing a black protective mask over her mouth and nose, as a precaution amid the latest strains of COVID-19.
Rounding out her look, the Blade Runner 2049 star had her dark tresses styled long, a few inches past her shoulders, with a part just off to the left.

Stylin’: The Blonde actress looked stylish for her travel day decked out in a white jumpsuit and black loafers, while carrying a Louis Vuitton bag.
Boukadakis, 38, looked ruggedly handsome in black pants with a matching leather jacket over a white T-shirt for their travel day.
The Oklahoma native, who’s a Tinder executive, also donned a pair of brown leather boots, and he too wore a face mask while out among all the people at the busy airport.
Boukadakis and de Armas first met through a mutual friend during one of the heights of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Elle.
With most public spaces and businesses closed during lockdown, the pair got to know each other while sipping on wine together in their respective homes.
By June of 2021, Page Six reported that they had been dating for ‘a few months’, and he had already introduced her to some of his family.

The pair would eventually confirm their romance when they were spotted sharing a passionate kiss in Los Angeles last December.
They have since taken the relationship to the next level by moving in together in an apartment in New York City.
De Armas’ high-profile romance with Affleck, and all the scrutiny that came along with it, was one of the contributing factors for the actress to decide to make the move from Los Angeles to New York.
‘Going through it [myself] confirmed my thoughts about, “This is not the place for me to be,”‘ she said of her seven years in LA. ‘It became a little bit too much. There’s no escape. There’s no way out… It’s always the feeling of something that you don’t have, something missing. It’s a city that keeps you anxious.’

The former couple met on the set of Deep Water in late 2019, and then began dating during the initial pandemic quarantine in March 2020, through until their split in January 2021.
It appears de Armas and Boukadakis started their relationship a couple of months after she decided to end things with Affleck.
The actress had two new films drop this year: Deep Water, the erotic psychological thriller with Affleck, in March on Hulu, and the action thriller film The Gray Man, in July, which also stars Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, among many others.
Blonde is scheduled to begin streaming on Netflix on September 28.
Most recently she shot the romantic action-adventure film Ghosted, that also stars Chris Evans, from February until mid-May.
