Recalling the past, the actress said that her childhood was very vivid and un. She and her friends had never played video games or watched DVDs, on the contrary her the days were filled with plain human communication and interesting ideas.
I grew up in nature, at the beach, and playing on the streets with friends. I felt very free. Just going wild out there and coming back home to have dinner and watch cartoons. Falling and having my knees all bleeding all the time. It was a normal childhood.
And today, when she comes to Cuba to visit her parents, she turns off her phone, does not go online and simply enjoys communicating with loved ones, going to the beach and taking strolls.

Ana de Armas' parents are Ana Caso and Ramon de Armas. Her father, who at one time studied philosophy at one of the universities in the USSR, changed many professions: he was a teacher, bank manager and vice mayor of the city. Her mom worked in the personnel department of the Ministry of Education.

Before moving to Los Angeles, Ana de Armas did not know English, except for some common phrases. And this fact surprises many of her colleagues, because her English is impeccable, and without an accent. After moving to LA, she went to a full-time language school for four months and studied, studied, studied...
I went to English school full-time for the first three or four months when I got here. I really wanted to learn grammar so I could write correctly and understand what I was saying. But I make so many mistakes.
The first American project of the Cuban heroine was the film "Hands of Stone" (2015), where Ana starred with Robert de Niro. The girl was amazed by the experience of playing together with the legendary actor, and she herself showed top class. However, the biopic about the great boxer remained almost unnoticed by the audience.

Another film that was released during this period, with the participation of Ana de Armas is the thriller "Knock Knock" with Keanu Reeves. The movie was remembered by the audience with an unusual approach to the old plot: two girls (Ana de Armas and LorenzaIzzo) turned out to be in the vicinity of cold-blooded sadistic maniacs, mocking with cold cruelty the family that had sheltered them.
