Eva Mendes Covers ALLURE August 2010

Eva Mendes dons Dolce & Gabbana for Michael Thompson in his New York City studio for the August 2010 cover spread of Allure, on newsstands July 20. Here are some choice quotes from the 36-year-old actress:

On her public image: “I don’t want ‘sexy’ to be my defining characteristic”

On her school yearbook photos: “One of the benefits of having a big smile and big teeth is that if you just smile you can look happy”

On a double standard existing when it comes to nudity in Hollywood: “[When] other actresses who aren’t thought of, maybe, as being quite as attractive do full-frontal, they’re called brave. Nobody has ever said, ‘Eva, you’re so brave for doing full-frontal nudity.’ Just because I’m attractive doesn’t mean it’s not still scary. Why am I not brave?”
