The end of each year inevitably brings with it carefully curated “best of” lists, but there are plenty of conversations to be had at the other end of the spectrum as well. Unfortunately, Ana de Armas got caught in the dogfight for having the worst 2022 of any star in Hollywood, but her bacon may have been saved by Margot Robbie.
To be fair, de Armas’ year wasn’t an absolute disaster, especially considering she didn’t appear in a single film that enjoyed wide theatrical release. Erotic Thriller Deep water was delayed for nearly a year and a half before being sold to Hulu and buried The gray man became Netflix’s biggest hit of the year, and it was pretty much Andrew Dominiks’ only element Blond who was able to escape relatively unscathed from the wreck.
That didn’t stop a debate erupting on Twitter, however, over whether or not the 34-year-old had genuinely enjoyed the industry’s most notable annus horribilis.
Of course, it wasn’t long before Margot Robbie hit the chat, as the two-time Oscar nominee was dubbed the unwelcome label “box office poison” after receiving second billing behind Christian Bale and Brad Pitt respectively Amsterdam and Babylontwo colossal box office disasters that together are expected to cause losses of a staggering $300 million.
Hard but probably fair. 2022 was hardly a standout year for de Armas, but at least she didn’t have to suffer the shame of watching two big budget vanity projects erupt in a ball of flames so hot their short-term reputation may have been damaged as a direct result .
