Affleck most recently dates Knives Out star Ana de Armas, although the two reportedly went their separate ways. And now it looks like we might have gotten a clue prior to this announcement: de Armas' bold new haircut.

Breakups are a tricky thing, and everyone processes them differently. One long-standing stereotype that folks will get drastic new haircuts in order to break back into their independence.

Ana de Armas has a new look, and it's quite fetching. And while it's unclear if she cut off her locks for work or pleasure, fans will no doubt assume it's a break-up related alteration. And in that way, she's just like the rest of us.

The above image of Ana de Armas comes from her recent appearance on the online series Ser mamá es De Madre. She debuted her new haircut in the process, which is a tight bob that really shows off the 32 year-old actress' bone structure. We'll just have to wait and see if Ben Affleck makes any bold new styling choices in the wake of the former couple's breakup.

Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck became an official couple back in May, and have been photographed countless times together since. The two took family trips with Affleck's kids, while also being caught walking de Armas' new puppy. Unfortunately the relationship recently ended, reportedly due to the actors being in such different places in their lives.

This is by far the first celebrity breakup, and it won't be the last of 2021. Because while famous names tend to couple off, it can be difficult to balance two very busy work schedules. Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck are both keeping busy, with highly anticipated projects coming down the line. And while fans are eager to see them on the big screen, we shouldn't expect the pair to be caught by paparazzi anytime soon.

Professionally, both Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck continue to be in good places. The actress has a number of highly anticipated projects coming down the line, including a role in No Time to Die as well as playing Marilyn Monroe in a biopic.
