‘Unless there’s some miracle and Ana comes back asking for another chance. He is really focused on prioritizing himself and his kids rather than relationships, and his friends have been joking about him taking an oath of celibacy. Whether or not he can stay single for long remains to be seen.’

Affleck’s friends have urged him to ‘work on himself’ and ‘stop rushing into very intense relationships, which implode as soon as the honeymoon’s over.’

The Last Thing He Wanted actor and the Cuban 32-year-old – who met in New Orleans in November 2019 – were last physically pictured together in Santa Monica on November 28.

Things are going to be awkward when Ben and Ana have to reunite to promote their roles as a dysfunctional couple in Adrian Lyne’s erotic thriller Deep Water hitting US/UK theaters August 13.

‘At this point in my career, I’m a little old. I’m 48, so I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be the “not-25-year-old” guy,’ Ben told Variety’s Actors on Actors on Friday.

‘But there are more interesting roles. People with whom you can identify are more interesting to me because I no longer have the ability to do something when I’m bored halfway through it and hate it. I just can’t do it.

‘It’s not worth it to be away from my kids. If I’m going to travel, there had better be something really satisfying that I think they’ll see at some point, hopefully. Although my kids are like, “Dad, we don’t want to watch your movies.”‘
