Eva Mendes is on the March cover of Marie Claire magazine, and the stunning actress dishes on body image and her co-star (and reported flame) Ryan Gosling.
On body image: ”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.”
On working with Ryan Gosling: “He’s your dream costar. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film.”
On her idols, Julianne Moore and Annette Bening: “I have a girl crush on them. I’d kill to have half the careers they’ve had after 40.”
