De Armas also talked about movie stars and how social media has changed the game in ways that can’t be measured. “I feel like the new generations don’t have that concept, because of social media. There is so much information out there and oversharing. The concept of a movie star is someone untouchable you only see onscreen,” she said. “That mystery is gone. For the most part, we’ve done that to ourselves - nobody’s keeping anything from anyone anymore.”
De Armas has experienced a whirlwind year, earning nominations for her work in “Blonde” in some of the industry’s most prestigious awards.

I’m over the moon,” she wrote. “Thank you for all your love and support, for all your messages, calls, and videos. My heart’s never been fuller! What an unbelievable day, what a beautiful honor. Thank you to the Academy for making this dream come true.”
