"Ben and Ana have been dating for a few weeks and are enjoying each other's company," the source says. "The couple met while filming [upcoming psychological thriller] Deep Water in Louisiana and instantly had a connection."
According to the source, de Armas is supportive of Affleck's sobriety, which he was extremely open about while promoting his latest film, The Way Back, in which he plays a basketball coach struggling with addiction.
"Ben is sober and in a really good place and Ana respects him for the process he's going through," the source says. "Ben and Ana are still early into their relationship, but it's been fun and exciting for both."
"I don't know, trust? And care, and mutual respect, and all the sort of usual stuff," he said. "But I think that's a big part of what makes life satisfying and interesting... It sort of happens when it happens, though. It's not the thing you can force."
