Can you believed that our beloved Hollywood rising star Ana de Armas almost turned down her leading, awesome role in the acclaimed movie “Knives Out” for being afraid to be stereotyped as just a beauty! Scroll down as we reveal this incredible confession!
“Things could have been very different,” reveals the girlfriend of Ben Affleck, in fact at the set of “Knives Out” she met Daniel Craig and also landed a role as the new Bond girl in the upcoming movie “No Time To Die.”
When de Armas read the description of the character as a pretty Latina caretaker, she though they only choose her for being Cuban. So the role didn’t seem exciting for her, it was totally typecast.
Ana really wanted to be able to play any character, from anywhere in the world because the stories she wants to tell as an actress with her performance are universal.
It looks like “Knives Out” production wanted to keep their clever script top secret and that’s why they only sent her such a short description with very little information. Spoiler alert: her character is the most important in the movie!
Thank God the 32-year-old star, after initial hesitation, decided to accept to perform the character of Marta Cabrera, whom she nailed so perfectly that she ended up with a Golden Globe nomination!
