“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.”
– Eva Mendes is on the cover of the March issue of Marie Claire and, inside the mag, talks about her own body image evolution. I quite agree with her — in my list of “Style Resolutions I’ve Already Achieved,” I said that I had come to love and/or appreciate certain “flaws,” like my thin upper lip, thick brown hair, and butt and my overall self-esteem had reaped the rewards. (FYI, Eva also supposedly discussed a certain co-star/boyfriend with the magazine, but upon seeing his name at the link I shut my eyes really quick so as to not break my Goservention rules. Aren’t you proud of me? Please be proud of me. Without your pride, this torture is just not worth it.) [Just Jared]
J. Lo and Marc Anthony. Sniff. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Chin wobble. Demi and Ashton, no last names necessary. Sob! So many celebrity breakups this year, it’s almost as if it’s impossible for love to last in Tinseltown. But let’s stop being negative. Plenty of fun, new couples were formed in just the last few months — here’s a look at 12 couples to watch in 2012.
Funny or Die’s drunk retelling of “The Night Before Christmas” is like no other Christmas tale you’ve heard. Drunk Allan McLeod recites the poem while Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes attempt to act it out. It looks like someone dipped into the Christmas brandy early. [Funny or Die]
We spotted Eva Mendes with red hair on the set of her new movie “Holly Motors” in Paris yesterday. Mendes looked eerily like deceased soul singer Amy Winehouse. Winehouse, 27, died as as an “unintended consequence” of drinking too much alcohol on July 23.
Mendes, 37, sported a similar beehive hairdo and eye make-up like the British singer. In the film, French actor Dennis Lavant plays a man who who travels between different lives, including that of a murderer, beggar, CEO, monstrous creature and father. Mendes plays a character from the past. Check out more photos here!
With films “Drive” and “The Ides of March” about to debut, 30-year-old Ryan Gosling’s about to go from being known as “the dude from ‘The Notebook’” to “the hottest actor in Hollywood.” So what does that mean for Gosling, besides being able to negotiate $20-million film contracts? Scoring tons of women. That’s right, Leonardo finally has some serious competition, but fortunately for Leo, who prefers to date women while their in their physical prime (he’s currently tied to “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively), Gosling likes his women more mature and worldly — in other words, older. It seems he’s finally gotten over his former long-term beau, 32-year-old Rachel McAdams, by falling for 37-year-old Eva Mendes. Here are the hot Hollywood couples who remind us why we liked “The Graduate” so much. Read more… Keep reading »
When most woman read today that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes had been spotted holding hands in Adventure Park at Disneyland, and later snuggling while watching a water show in Tomorrowland, they got very depressed. But since I do not quite understand the Gosling worship, another thought crossed my mind: wow, Ryan sure seems to bring a lot of ladies to Disneyland. What’s up with that?
After a jump, a review of the depths of Ryan’s Disneyland obsession: Keep reading »
Actress Eva Mendes
has a lot in common with the host of “Chelsea Lately.” Apart from sharing a taste for shoes with really super-high heels, both Mendes and Chelsea Handler
admit they have an aversion to getting married.
Mendes believes in true love and spiritual unions and all that good stuff — she’s just not into having a piece of paper to seal the deal. “We were doing it for land originally. I mean, how unromantic is that?” she asked.
“Well,” replied the ever-practical Handler, “if we were doing it for land now I’d probably be more interested.” Read more… Keep reading »
UPDATE: Since they happen so quickly before the Oscars, the Independent Spirit Awards don’t usually get a ton of press. And so we will just bring you the weird-light (yeah, I can’t quite call it a highlight) of the awards ceremony. As Paul Rudd and Eva Mendes were presenting an award for Best Screenplay, Eva explained that the two had planned a bit that got cut for time wherein “Paul was going to grab my tits, and you guys were going to shocked, horrified, and laugh hysterically.” For good measure, Paul cupped one of her boobs anyway. As they continued with the presentation, and Paul read the names of the nominees, Rosario Dawson jumped on stage and grabbed Paul’s crotch. Grabbed and squeezed. Yes, really—this happened.
