Eva Mendes to 'Flare': 'I Don't Like Feeling Like I'm on Display'

Eva Mendes gets a closeup on her gorgeous face on the cover of Flare magazine’s May 2014 issue, on newsstands April 14.

Here’s what the 40-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On body baring clothes: “I don’t like when it’s just me and I’m not working. I don’t like feeling like I’m on display. It’s not that I’m against body-conscious clothes: I have worn them on the red carpet or out, but when I’m photographed in them, I always regret it. For me, it’s always been the easy way out. When I wear something a little more revealing, I think, Oh, gosh, I should have been more creative.”

On her famous head wraps: “They’re an easy way for me to feel pulled together, even when I’m not. Some kind of scarf or a mini-turban situation. That finishes a not-so-great outfit and polishes up the look a bit.”

On choosing her clothes: “It’s an important part of my day, what I choose to wear and put out there in the world. I also have to remember that I probably will be photographed at the gas pump.”

On her mom’s critiques: “She’s usually on the money. If she doesn’t like something, I can usually see why: it didn’t photograph well or looked weird around the waist.”
