BEN Affleck should be used to wearing masks after his turn as Batman, but it seems the A-lister is getting fed up of covering his face while out in public.
The 47-year-old actor was spotted grabbing coffee in LA with his new girlfriend Ana de Armas, 32, when he took his face mask off and stopped to pose for selfies with a Starbucks barista.
In California, face coverings are mandatory and people are required to practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from others.
And while Affleck was wearing a mask when he entered the Kroger store with his girlfriend and a small group of other friends – he soon removed it.
“He was wearing a mask but he may have gotten tired of it and when he had come to ask me for his refill he had it off and I knew that was the Batman for sure,” the barista in the store said.
He added that Ben was “certainly not afraid” to get close to him and his colleagues despite the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.
Affleck ordered an iced coffee with one pump of sugar-free vanilla from the Starbucks concession.
He wandered around the store to do his shopping and then returned for his free refill.
It’s not the first time Ben has broken the rules as last month he was spotted lifting his face mask to smoke a cigarette just days after kissing his girlfriend Ana de Arma through the protective gear.
He has been wearing the mask as he follows guidelines during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier this month, Ben was seen kissing Ana in spite of the masks while taking a stroll with new flame Ana.
Ben and Ana were first linked in early March after they were both spotted visiting the actress’s native Cuba.
A fan spotted Ben, who split from wife Jennifer Garner in 2015, and Ana enjoying themselves in a small town in Havana.
Ex Jen has been dating businessman John Miller since 2018.
It was recently reported that she has banned her Ben from introducing their children to his new girlfriend.
A source told Us magazine: “Ben is understanding.
“[He] said he would work with Jennifer to prepare the kids for meeting [Ana].”
The two share daughters Violet, 14, and Seraphina, 11, and son Samuel, 8, together.
Ben’s rep had no comment when contacted by The Sun Online.
