Eva Mendes, 37, shines in Dolce&Gabbana on the cover of Marie Claire‘s March 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (February 14). I had to post about this because 1. She is gorgeous! 2. She is dating the oh-so-yummy Ryan Gosling 3. She is older than him!
I think she is so pretty and has the best body, but I am not so sure what Marie Claire was doing with this cover. I think it looks a little man-ish mannequin. Whoever went a little crazy with the Photoshop needs to realize she doesn’t need it and it made her look bad. However, the rest of her pics are breathtaking.
Eva is out with her bf promoting her new movie in which she co-stars with him ‘Girl in Progress’ and here is what she has to share with the mag:
On working with Ryan Gosling: “He’s your dream costar. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film.”
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 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.”
