Eva Mendes is brave too, wants some recognition for baring all, pretty or not, its scary
HollywoodNews.com: Actress Eva Mendes wants people to think of her as “brave” when she bares all in movies.
The pretty 36-year-old thinks she is treated differently in comparison to other actors and actresses when it comes to nude scenes. Eva told Allure magazine: “[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, ‘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?”
Mendes, who is known for her appearances in films such as 2 Fast 2 Furious, would also prefer to be known more for her humour and intellect rather than her looks.
She added: “I don’t want ‘sexy’ to be my defining characteristic.”
