Eva Mendes Covers 'Marie Claire' March 2012

Eva Mendes sparkles in Dolce&Gabbana on the cover of Marie Claire‘s March 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (February 14).

Here’s what the 37-year-old Girl in Progress star had to share:

On working with Ryan Gosling: “He’s your dream costar. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film.”

On body image: “It doesn’t matter what you have or what you look like. It’s something everyone has to work at. I realize I have contributed to a certain happy, healthy, empowered image, but that’s not all of me. I feel it’s important to let women know that I have similar struggles. What I tell girls is what they don’t like about themselves now, they will probably end up loving as an adult, because that’s what happened to me. When I am complimented on things that I didn’t like when I was 13, like my overbite and my mole, that’s when you realize that your imperfections are why people love you.”

On her idols, Julianne Moore and Annette Bening: “I have a girl crush on them. I’d kill to have half the careers they’ve had after 40.”

  • Leenah

    Her face is weird on the cover..I bet she felt more than satisfied with Ryan off and on screen.

  • Ladyb

    To me, she will always be the most beautiful Latina. I don’t find Sopha Vegara attractive. Nice shape but that’s it.

  • Orlando

    This Cuban has a man face she looks masculine.

  • chase

    she seems like a nice person and might have a cool personality and that makes all the difference.
    but im not really that attracted to her overbite or her mole.
    she’s not really physically attractive to me personally.

  • Bogata

    The Colombian Sofia Vergara is much better looking and a woman!

  • Scarlett

    She might be considered beautiful but she’s a terrible actress. A career like Julianne Moore, oh please.

  • mikshane

    she has quite a masculine face.
    ryan is a touch girlie so maybe so maybe that offsets her masculinity.
    everything’s balanced out then.

  • amanda

    i love being creatively satisfied….i creatively satisfy myself alot too

  • nina

    actually I know a lot of guys who think she’s gorgeous

  • Charlie

    @Ladyb: You must be joking.

  • arlo

    Do you think her and Ryan will get married and settle down together?
    Such a weird couple.

  • Tracy

    That photo is hideous! wtf???

  • one

    Yeah just because you are “dating” a respected actor doesn’t make you one, although it will likely land you a magazine cover. Sorry to say she probably wouldn’t know how to deal with a Moore or Benning script if she is to receive one.

  • Me

    I am so tired of these skinny skinny women pretending they have curves and are contributing to a helathy body image.

  • willanka

    So she must have enjoy watching The Kids Are All Right. Actually I like her a bit more couse I have a girl crush on Julianne and Annette too.

  • mel

    She’s gonna latch onto Gosling for deal life. She needs all the career boost she can get. I’ll bet she’s trying to tie him down for good.

  • izzy

    Do you mean sexually satisfied, Eva?

  • Jil

    that’s some crazy @ss eye make up going on here!

  • BlUe

    She looks deformed in this photo. She’s a beautiful woman though, can’t deny that. She does have a hard, almost masculine look to her but that only serves to highlight her more feminine features.
    However, she picks terrible roles. Ghost Rider??? And her role in The Women was actually a bit of a racist characterisation. She was great in Training Day and We Own the Night.

  • mel

    I just want to punch her in the face!

  • Kevin

    LOL at that photoshop…someone should be fired

  • Lo Lo Chisal

    Publicly dating that sizzling actor again!

    Julianne Moore and Annette Benning in “The Kids are all right” – Lesbian couple.

    Kill for a career – hmmm – yeah she comes across like she would not stop at nothing.

  • pinaynay

    tranny and not in a fabulous way

  • amy

    She’s dumb. She’s admitted to not being very bright and likes to date men who are smarter than her so they can teach her things. Thats the most stupid, ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard a woman say. As a fellow female, I want to smack her upside the head! And this is who Ryan loves?! What does that say about him?

  • jane

    I’m sorry for making so many mean comments about Eva in the past. I wish her the best.
