Jimmy Fallon and Ana de Armas Have Fans Rolling With Laughter as They Play The Ridiculously Tough 'Backtionary'
It's safe to assume that Ana de Armas is having a great year in Hollywood so far. The newly Oscar-nominated actress showed up on the April 18, 2023 episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and had a hilarious chat with the host. The Blonde actress also participated in a fun game organized by Fallon on the show which was aptly named “backtionary.” Fallon is known to host a range of different games on his show and this one happens to be just a funnier version of the pictionary game.
Armas appeared on the show to promote her upcoming film with Chris Evans titled Ghosted where she plays a secret agent who ends up ghosting Evans' character after a single date. When the interesting game of backtionary started, the actress was tasked to guess an item that will be sketched on her back by the host. She will win the game if she ends up recreating the image accurately on the canvas in front of her. The two then continued playing by reversing their roles.
The game started with a blast as both parties faced difficulty figuring out what their markers were up to. Fallon then invited the show’s resident band leader, Questlove to join them in the game, adding to the element of difficulty and humor. Now it was up to de Armas to draw on the back of Fallon who drew on the back of Questlove to figure out what picture de Armas had chosen. Rest assured, the audience has a gala time watching the trio struggle in the game.
The Knock Knock actress also got a major honor from the creators of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream on the show. Fallon had apparently not forgotten Armas’ words when she previously appeared on the talk show and revealed the kind of flavors she would love in her ice cream. So Fallon had a little chat with Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, the founders of the famous ice cream brand and presented Armas with a special surprise.
Armas was met on the show with a special video message from Cohen and Greenfield who announced that Armas will get her own one-time ice cream flavor known as Ana de ArMAS Leche. The ice cream is a mix of caramel and chocolate ice cream with chocolate cookie swirls, chocolate chip cookie dough, peanut butter cookie dough and sweetened condensed milk. Armas had especially preferred to tweak her ice cream flavor with a dash of condensed milk. "We were so excited to hear that Ben and Jerry's The Tonight Dough is your favorite ice cream," the ice cream giant’s owners told de Armas in a video message. "We love that you're a fan and came up with something in our kitchen for a special one-day-only, one-time-only surprise."
According to Daily Mail, the 34-year-old Cuban actress also mesmerized fans by making her SNL debut with an opening monologue where she joked about learning English watching Friends and shared an amusing anecdote about Robert De Niro. But unfortunately, the episode was negatively criticized by reviewers who labeled it subpar and boring. But there is no stopping this Cuban beauty as she climbs the Hollywood ladder and continues signing major movie deals with big studios.
