Ana De Armas Admits She Is Quitting Action Movies

Although Ana De Armas has recently appeared in movies such as Blonde, her reputation is undoubtedly built on her performances in action films.

Ana De Armas has starred in various movies, including No Time to Die where she played Paloma, as well as The Gray Man and Blade Runner 2049.

Undoubtedly, de Armas has become familiar with the genre, but it appears that her association with it might soon come to an end.

According to a recent interview, de Armas disclosed that she intends to retire from action movies after her upcoming film, Ballerina, which is a spin-off from the John Wick franchise.

For those who are not familiar with Ballerina, the movie's plot takes place during the events of John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum and John Wick 4.

De Armas portrays the lead character, Rooney, in the movie, who is an assassin seeking vengeance for the death of her family.

It seems that Ballerina will be the actor's final action movie for the time being, as she has indicated that she will adopt a more selective approach to selecting her future projects.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actor from No Time to Die elaborated that this will entail distancing herself from action and thriller movies.

She said: "After Bond, there was kind of a wave of all these action roles, and that was fun. I chose from the ones that I thought were more exciting or with people I wanted to work with."

"I feel like Ballerina is going to be the end of that, at least for now, because I'm craving a wave of Blonde-type films."

The actor continued: "I want to do work with directors and do character work. I have had the opportunity to meet directors that I want to work with."

"The people that I'm getting access to is changing, and that makes me very excited."

In other parts of the interview, de Armas commented on the highly-discussed movie, Blonde, set to release in 2022.

Vanity Fair asked de Armas whether Blonde's depiction of Hollywood had caused her to reconsider her experience of working in the industry.

She said: "Oh, yeah, for sure. The sad part for me - and the most challenging - is to see not only what happened in the '40s and '50s and '60s but to see patterns continue to happen."

"It's definitely made me more protective of myself and set boundaries and know my limits for how much I'm willing to give - and how much I want to keep to myself."

"But at the same time, it clearly is a place where incredible opportunities happen."
