She strolled the NYC sidewalk in a pair of silver lace-up sandals with a modest heel that gave her petite 5foot6inch frame a boost.

The Knock Knock star’s shiny brunette hair cascaded down her back and chest in loose, voluminous waves.

She had a noticeably radiant complexion, with a generous amount of pink blush dusted on her cheeks.

Her hypnotic hazel eyes were accented with a shimmery champagne-toned eyeshadow and a subtle cateye flick.

Ana has been busy in recent weeks promoting her new film that focuses on the life of Hollywood blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe.

She recently dished to AnOther magazine that she asked for Marilyn Monroe’s ‘permission’ to play her when visiting her Los Angeles grave. 

‘We got this big card and everyone in the crew wrote a message to her. Then we went to the cemetery and put it on her grave,’ she said. ‘We were asking for permission in a way. Everyone felt a huge responsibility, and we were very aware of the side of the story we were going to tell — the story of Norma Jeane, the person behind this character, Marilyn Monroe. Who was she really?’

She also said Blonde uses real incidents, but tries to fill in the moments in between what’s known on the public record.

‘It’s about the things we haven’t seen, the moments when the cameras aren’t flashing or rolling, when Marilyn is not ‘on’,’ said the Cuban-born beauty. ‘It’s fiction. We don’t have proof this happened. But it fills the gaps in the things we already know with a version of events that we should at least consider.’

The Knives Out star admitted she didn’t seem the likely candidate to be cast when she auditioned for the role about one of the most famous women in the world.

‘But of course I went for it, because I love challenges, and I knew that emotionally I could get there,’ she explained.

‘I didn’t know if the hair, the make-up would, but I understood what we were trying to say. Andrew called me after the audition and said, “It’s you. It has to be you.” But then we had to convince everybody else.’

The Gray Man actor’s Cuban accent would have traditionally kept her from the job, but a voice coach was hired to help her learn to speak like Marilyn.

‘Marilyn’s voice, her expressions, were a consequence of the speech classes she took herself, of her insecurities, of her not having any boundaries and letting people in, of playing this part of having to be rescued all the time.’

In studying the star, Ana learned to share her vulnerability.

‘So I had to know what she was thinking and feeling every time. Because the way she rounded her lips for the ‘O’s, or how much of her lower teeth she would show, what her eyebrows were doing, all these expressions were a consequence of Marilyn in survival mode. They were tricks that she was pulling in desperate circumstances.’

Blonde premiered in theaters over the weekend and is slated for a September 28 release on Netflix.
