The actress was married for two years to fellow Spanish actor and model, Marc Clotet, several years before she began dating Ben Affleck

Ana and Marc looked picture perfect as they walked down the aisle in an intimate ceremony in Costa Brava.

The pair's love didn't last though, and they were only married for two years from 2011-2013 before they divorced. 

At the time, Marc insisted it was amicable and confirmed their split to Diez Minutos while attending the 2013 Goya Awards. During the interview, the star added: "We are still friends," and are believed to still be.

Ana said the attention her romance with Ben Affleck drew was too much 

Ana left Los Angeles and said she's much happier with a life further away from the spotlight, outside of work. 

"It became a little bit too much," she told Elle. "There’s no escape. There’s no way out. That’s one of the reasons why I left L.A. It’s always the feeling of something that you don’t have, something missing. It’s a city that keeps you anxious."

Speaking of how draining the filming process often was, she said: "I was her for nine weeks. And I can tell you, it was exhausting. I just cannot imagine what it was like to be her for 36 years."
