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?”

OMFG SHE IS FUGLY AS HELL.

If she had insecurity issues, then yes, I guess it would be considered brave of her to strip down. But from the sounds of it, she doesn’t. N.b. Eva, it’s much harder doing nudity when you know your body isn’t perfect (and even so, this doesn’t mean that the actress is any less attractive) Take Kate Winslet for an example, her breasts are far from perfect but she is still very attractive. It’s considered ‘brave’ to do what Kate did in The Reader when the celeb industry villifies those who are less than perfect, so yes, Kate Winslet is more ‘brave’.
Eva has a standard good body, viewers will look and see that. Story over. Her having a good body is un-extraordinary in the industry and thus a non-issue. When your body and the sex you sell (visually – not calling her a prostitue or anything) comes a dime a dozen, it isn’t as big a deal to critics when you strip off.

Also, whilst I don’t agree that she is ugly, she does have a strong face which only lends itself well to certain angles. She is much more attractive in motion (i.e. on camera). She is undeniably sexy though and you don’t necessarily have to be beautiful to be sexy……

She is GORGEOUS.

fugly *****, full of **** and herself, awful actress. BLAH!

Since I’m so beautiful, I’m going to take a stab in the dark. Passing for white doesn’t make you beautiful. And it doesn’t mean that people want to look at your picture in fashion magazines, or at you in films, or on the internet, or in real life. Stop modeling and acting, now.
