Ana de Armas conquista Hollywood

"I can't stay in one place for too long," Ana de Armas says over a cup of tea in a quiet, sunlit cafe in SoHo. "I always need to keep moving." Well then, the 27-year-old actress has picked the right career. Since moving to Los Angeles from Spain a year ago, the Cuban native has been zipping from one film set to the next. Recent stints include time in Washington Heights, New York, filming Daughter of God with Keanu Reeves and Mira Sorvino, and in Panama for the forthcoming Hands of Stone, a boxing biopic that stars Robert De Niro. "It was a dream come true," she says of working with such a legend. "I was enjoying myself and, at the same time, trying to look at myself from the outside like, ‘Are you really getting to do this?' " In May, de Armas was in Miami for Arms and the Dudes, a Todd Phillips-directed crime caper co-starring Miles Teller and Jonah Hill. Never mind that she only began studying English a few years ago (this is her first interview in the language), de Armas, who at 18 decamped from Cuba to Spain by herself, without knowing a soul, is as dauntless as ever. "Right now I want to try as many different roles as I can," she says. "I want to do everything." (Interview Magazine)
