Ana de Armas Explains Why She Thinks 'Movie Stars' No Longer Exist

Ana de Armas is on her way to becoming a massive movie star, but she doesn’t agree that “movie stars” are a thing anymore.

The Oscar-nominated actress, who most recently starred in Netflix’s Blonde, is explaining why she doesn’t think movie stars exist in the social media generation.

“I feel like the new generations don’t have that concept, because of social media,” Ana said in a new interview for Vanity Fair. “There is so much information out there and oversharing. The concept of a movie star is someone untouchable you only see onscreen. That mystery is gone. For the most part, we’ve done that to ourselves — nobody’s keeping anything from anyone anymore.”

She added, “I barely use it because I just feel like things are always wrong on social media. If it was up to me, I would delete Instagram right now, but I can’t. I understand that I’m not just an actress. I have other brands that I’m working with and I have other commitments. It’s been good for Blonde and for films that I want to talk about.”

“It’s tricky because you feel the pressure to share some personal insight, or something about your private life, to keep people interested in you,” she said. “You have to find a balance somehow, which I find very difficult.”

Here’s everything else Ana had to share with the mag.
