Eva Mendes: I'm a 'Work in Progress'

Eva Mendes: I'm a 'Work in Progress'

Eva Mendes wears a bright Jonathan Saunders dress while leaving the Today show studio on Wednesday (May 9) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actress – who accessorized with Thierry Lasry sunglasses and Prada heels – promoted her new film, Girl in Progress, on the morning news program.

Collider recently asked Eva how much of a girl in progress she is at this stage of her life.

“Personally? Oh, gosh! I often refer to myself as a work in progress, so it’s funny that this is the title of the film. I’m always taking the odd class, in anything, to grow,” she told the website.

“I just took a course in Thai massage,” Eva revealed. “It sounds so funny, but I enjoy giving massages. My mom has terrible neck and back problems, so I grew up massaging her and I feel like she trained me well, so I took a course in Thai massage. I’ve got to say, I’ve been told I’m pretty good.”

    The movies of her son are all failures, but Hollywood sells he as the next superstar

    I don’t care what you say, she still looks like she thinks her sh*t don’t stink.

    I’m convinced she’s sperminated by Gosling.

    Maggie Says:

    She’s absolutely stunning. And for all of the Ryan Gosling fans out there, he seems to have really high standards in his choice of women, with Sandra Bullock and Rachel Mcadams leading the pack. Everyone needs to give this woman a break. I’m sure she’s a great person.

    Love that look, which is unusual because I’m not usually a fan of her style. Presumably her massages are better than her acting.

    Ryan, please don’t procreate with this women! She uses a shock collar on her dog!

    She’s not that bright…why is Ryan Gosling dating her?

  18. 18
    joey Says:

    @Bodhi: Not that bright, and known as one of the bitchiest women in hollywood. It’s either a showmance, or Ryan doesn’t have his head screwed on right.

    Thai Massage, huh? I bet she got some good practice from home for her classes.

    and you know all that from ummm…gossip magazines, what makes you not bright at all.

    Mosley Says:

    She has a movie to promote (getting bad reviews btw) so I guess why these stories are coming out now. Her colour sense is just terrible (how can she wear those glasses with this dress) and she looks like a crazy person to me.

    Cuban Tranny Heels Says:

    She is a work in progress because she hasn’t had the operation yet to transform herself into a real man below the belt.

  23. 23
    mara Says:

    @Mosley: Exactly! Her PR people will do anything to get her name out there.

  24. 24
    annie Says:

    @haha: Agreed. Gossip magazine are probably the furthest from the truth.

    @annie:Especially when she needs publicity and her people put stories out to make people interested in her.
