Eva Mendes (36) brings the quotes of the day:
On a double standard existing when it comes to nudity in Hollywood: â€œ[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, â€˜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?â€
On her sexy image: â€œI’m definitely responsible for the image that I put out there,â€ she says. â€œBut it does become frustrating, because I don’t want â€˜sexy’ to be my defining characteristic. I’d love for my ambition and will and intellect and sense of humor to define me as well.â€
