Cuban actress based in the US, Ana de Armas, bid farewell today from Havana, after spending a week celebrating her 35 birthday in the Cuban capital, and social networks heated up with it.

Since her arrival along with her boyfriend, businessman Paul Boukadakis, the trip enemies did not stop questioning her and tried to politicize the visit to the place she was born on April 30, 1988.

However, it seems that the star character of the film Blonde, film from which she has been nominated to the 2023 Oscar, ignored somehow the attacks sprouted by the most conservative sectors of the Cuban exile, bothered by the fact that the young actress wanted to spend some days with her people.

The pictures of her on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, leaked by fans and followers, showed that the Hollywood star had fun during her vacation in Cuba, a place she had not visited for over two years.

Her enemies were let down after her visit to the headquarters of the children's theater group La Colmenita, where the couple enjoyed some songs, danced and learned about the work this theater group with children from Cuba and other countries for 33 years.

They criticized their time there, the same place where Michelle Obama, former first lady of the United States, the so-called "laughter doctor" Patch Adams, singers Harry Belafonte, Katy Perry and Beyoncé; as well as actors Sean Penn and Danny Glover, and Spanish soccer star Sergio Ramos, among other personalities had previously visited the place.

She was attacked because she wanted to visit her home nation and toured Havana’s streets, drink a cocktail in El Floridita, and spent her birthday with relatives and childhood friends in Cuba.

They jumped to her neck, simply, for violating the US blockade. They do the same with every artist who decides to spend some time in the island. But they missed the shot this time, Ana flies high, too high, and she is a very determined girl.

She was welcomed here with admiration, pride, and respect for everything she has accomplished in her professional career.

Ana was seen happy with so much display of affection.

While social networks are still heated up, you can read tons of comments showing gratitude and affection, and congratulated her for her return, while other invited her back.

As an Internet user posted: Cuba is also her home.
