In an interview with Elle magazine, Curtis said that she assumed de Armas had just arrived from Cuba and was new in Hollywood when the two met on the Knives Out set. “I assumed, and I say this with real embarrassment because she had come from Cuba, that she had just arrived,” Curtis said.
“I made an assumption that she was an inexperienced, unsophisticated young woman. That first day, I was like, ‘Oh, what are your dreams?’” Curtis explained that she asked de Armas because she was so impressed with her that Jamie wanted to introduce her to her godchildren Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal. However, she was surprised to learn that de Armas already knew Jake.
|Ana de Armas|
There is a lot to unpack here. Ana de Armas was born in Havana, but hasn’t lived there since her teenage years. De Armas had already been working in Hollywood for a number of years before working on Knives Out. It’s one thing to simply not know who Ana de Armas is, but another thing to assume that she is inexperienced and unsophisticated because she was a fresh off the boat Cuban woman.
The irony is that the film Knives Out was praised by progressive film critics for the way it attacked Trump supporters in the film. Ana de Armas plays the nurse of the patriarch of a wealthy family. When he suddenly dies, the rest of the family meet up to figure out how his wealth will be divided, leading to a murder mystery.
On Wednesday, the Emmy Award–winning actor took fans on a kitchen crusade that ultimately led her to the hospital, and she documented it all on her Instagram stories.
She kicked off the story showing off her index finger wrapped in bandages, with the caption, "See now…this is why I don’t cook.”
Who hasn't whacked their finger in the kitchen? She just needs more practice.At Da Mail, Russian supermodel Irina Shayk in social media storm as she is accused of ‘backing Putin’s war’ by ‘using his Z symbol’ in Instagram post...which vanishes after Ukrainian anger
Supermodel Irina Shayk is at the centre of a social media storm after she was accused of 'backing Putin's war' by using his 'Z' symbol on Instagram.
She captioned a picture of a traditional Olivier salad with the phrase 'Russianzz on Wednesday', provoking outrage from Ukrainians and others who interpreted the spelling to be a reference to Russia's war Z symbol.
. . .
The story with the picture of the salad - a Russian specialty - vanished after 24 hours and Shayk, 36, has not commented on the hostile reaction.
Britney Spears shared in an Instagram post that she’d "rather hang out with homeless people than people in Hollywood."
The 40-year-old pop star took to Instagram Thursday, sharing a text image that says "God is not nice," with the caption "Does that mean the devil is EXTREMELY HOT AND NICE???" The post also included the purple devil emoji, thinking emoji and crying laughing emoji.
Spears completed the post with "I’d rather hang out with homeless people than the people in Hollywood…JUST SAYING!!!!"
Fans were quick to respond to her post with comments like "Homeless people probably have A LOT more wisdom than those in Hollywood" and "Homeless people are people, Brit."
OK, so maybe it wasn't so random.
