Ana and her dog, Elvis, will co-star in Blonde, a fictionalized take on the life of Marilyn Monroe that will be released by Netflix in 2021. Elvis portrays Mafia, Marilyn Monroe’s loyal companion during her final years.
Named in honor of Sinatra’s alleged mafia connections, the Maltese dog was given to her by Frank Sinatra. After Marilyn Monroe’s death, Mafia was passed on to Sinatra’s secretary
