Eva Mendes Interview in Latina Magazine

Great Eva Mendes interview in the November Issue of Latina Magazine

Eva Mendes in the November Issue of Latina Magazine

We all know Eva Mendes for her sex appeal, sense of humor, and killer roles alongside Hollywood’s finest, but she still always manages to surprise us…read on as Latina reveals what you may not have known about this sultry starlet…

On the hot opening scene of We Own the Night…

“Unfortunately, yes [I had to get buzzed]. It was a big deal, even though you’ve seen me do more nudity. We were rehearsing the scene one morning, and I started crying like a little Catholic girl.”

“I told him (Papi) and everybody else in my family to come 15 minutes late [to the premiere at the Cannes Film Festival].”


On the Ideal Role…Dark & Risqué!

“A lot of actresses are so stuck on looking beautiful, and I really am not. I’m about letting the beauty and the ugliness come out.”

Fave Latina Actresses in Hollywood:

“I admire all of us, because it’s not easy to tear down boundaries. I adore Penelope Cruz. I remember going to see Volver and just crying. I love the up-and-coming ones, too, like Zoë Saldana – she’s a really funny girl. I just want more of us.”

Looking back to her childhood:

“It’s just so hard to go to school and be a 12-year-old, period. I wanted to have finer features, I didn’t want to be so dark, I didn’t want to have my mom speaking Spanish in front of the school where everyone was watching. But thank G-d it was just a phase.”

As for her beau, George Augusto…

“Even if you’re complete opposites, what matters is that you balance each other out, like a see saw – you don’t want to be on the floor or up in the sky. I’m really high-strung, loud and obnoxious. My boyfriend is quiet, mild-mannered and completely rational, whereas I’m completely emotional.”


Looking into the future…

“[If I had a daughter], I would teach her about culture. That’s probably why I don’t have kids yet. I feel like I need to go to Cuba first – whether Castro is in power or not – and figure out some stuff on my own. I guess it would be fun to go with my daughter and find out together.”

David Beckham Tops The List Of 49 Manliest Men of 2007 at AskMen.com

Justin Timberlake, Matt Damon, Timbaland, Roger Federer, Matt Damon also feature

AskMen.com Readers Rank Top 49 “Man’s Man” List of 2007

David Beckham Named No1

AskMen.com, the Internet’s #1 men’s lifestyle site, today unveiled its annual list of the Top 49 Men. AskMen.com readers were asked to select men who best exemplify a true “man’s man.” After more than one million votes were tallied over the past 30 days, the stylish soccer phenom David Beckham ranked No.1 on the list, which can now be viewed at http://www.AskMen.com

David Beckham

Screen actor Matt Damon was the Top 49 runner-up, followed by Timbaland, the music producer extraordinaire. The rest of the top 10, in order, are: tennis star Roger Federer, musician and actor Justin Timberlake, actor Daniel Craig, tech mogul Steve Jobs, actor George Clooney, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton and actor Christian Bale. The complete list, including profiles on each honoree is available for viewing at http://www.askmen.com/specials/2007_top_49/

“The annual Top 49 Men list provides a window into the collective mind of our readers and gives them a voice to proclaim who they care about most,” says James Bassil, Editor-in-Chief of AskMen.com. “The Top 49 list is unique among celebrity rankings in that it is created by our AskMen.com readers, rather than a stable of editors. This allows us to get a true sense of today’s most respected male role models across industries such as entertainment, sports and technology.”

The Top 49 list is an alternative to the common “Most Beautiful” and “Sexiest” lists as it’s determined by the general public, not an editorial staff. AskMen.com polled its own readers to initiate the annual list by asking them to nominate 100 “ambassadors of male-kind.” Readers were encouraged to look beyond surface attributes like good looks, wealth and fame, to focus on qualities that make a man truly admirable. After a month-long voting period, readers selected their Top 49 finalists.

An annual survey of its readers, the second-annual Top 49 Men list follows in the footsteps of AskMen.com’s widely popular Top 99 Most Desirable Women list, a yearly roundup that debuted in 2001. In January of 2007, Beyonce was named the year’s Most Desirable Woman by AskMen.com readers.
