Ana de Armas Is In ‘Pain’ After Fight With Keanu Reeves

Ana de Armas has said that she’s in “pain” after a fight with Keanu Reeves. While Reeves is known as one of the gentlest, kindest souls in Hollywood, he transforms on screen, and the actors’ characters went into battle for “Ballerina,” the new movie in the John Wick franchise.

  1. “Ballerina” sounds like it’ll be another big hit. Ana de Armas plays a female assassin looking for revenge on the people who killed her family, while Keanu Reeves will reprise his John Wick role. Anjelica Huston and Lance Reddick will also be back.
  2. The fight scenes were intense. Filming began in Prague in 2022, and de Armas had to film more than a few fight scenes, one of which was with Reeves. Needless to say, it was a physically taxing job that left the actress with a few bumps and bruises.
  3. “Ballerina” hasn’t finished filming yet. Appearing on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” de Armas said there was about a month left of shooting and that it’s been an “awesome” experience. However, she’ll likely be looking forward to a bit of recovery time.
  4. Ana de Armas is in a world of pain after fighting with Keanu Reeves and other actors. “We’ve been in Prague filming for four months. We still have one more month to go,” she said during the interview. “And I’m in pain. You know, my body, my back, everything hurts. I’m complaining, I’m sore, I’m bruised.”
  5. Of course, this isn’t her first time doing fight scenes. She had a few in “No Time to Die,” as well. However, she was quick to point out that her Bond stint was only about 15 minutes worth of work, whereas the John Wick movie is several hours. “But the other day, Keanu and I were rehearsing our very difficult stunt scene, and this man is just rolling and throwing me and doing crazy stunts,” she shared. “And I’m like – I can’t complain anymore, I’m done. Because he is doing it!” She added of Reeves: “He truly is the best.”
