Eva Mendes: 'I Didn't Mind Stripping in The Spirit'

Eva Mendes had no qualms about stripping off for her role in new movie The Spirit - because it meant she was able to play a tough girl.

The actress, 34 - who plays Sand Saref in director Frank Miller's new film noir - insists walking around in the buff wasn't an issue because she was playing her dream character.

Eva explains, "She's so kick-ass in every way. She's such a smart dame, that part of her sexuality, part of getting what she wants, is turning up the sex. So yeah, I had no problem with taking my clothes off for this role."

The Spirit - which also stars Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson - was released in December 2008.

Eva Mendes Blasts "Sexist" Hollywood

Eva Mendes insists she has never had a "negative situation" with a female co-star, even though she often has to deal with media reports to the contrary.

The We Own the Night actress, 34, believes the American film industry is sexist - because male actors never have to deal with rumors of feuding with same-sex co-stars.

Eva - who stars alongside Scarlett Johansson, Jaime King and Paz Vega in Frank Miller's avant-garde film noir The Spirit - insists there was no tension amongst the cast while filming, and is bored of rumors suggesting otherwise.

She explains, "I know how people like to believe that, but it's a very sexist way of thinking. Nobody ever asks that when men work together in an ensemble cast. I've been in the business 10 years and I've never had a negative situation with another actress - ever."

Kim Kardashian: 2008s Most Google’d Celeb

This is very surprising…or maybe not ..

Google just released their list of top searches this week and Kim Kardashian is at the top !

Normally you’d expect Britney Spears, Beyonce, or even Michael Jackson to nab the top spot but Kim Kardashian ..that’s some new ish’.

Before we start twitching our side-eyes we must look at Kardashian’s year. After her now pre-historic sex tape sold for six-plus figures the socialite nabbed her own reality show in 2008; upgraded from Ray J to NFL player Reggie Bush and took a nice check from ABC’s Dancing With The Stars among a few other things like her ‘flying off the shelf like hotcakes’ 2009 calendar.

I guess congratulations are in order for Ms. Kardashian… 2008s most Googled celebrity ! (Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, and Heath Ledger also made the cut).


'Spirit' star Eva Mendes talks about nudity, Scarlett Johannson & Jennifer Lopez

Eva Mendes made a huge stir this year when she posed nude for Calvin Klein ads that censors deemed too hot for American television. And as jewel thief Sand Saref, she heats up "The Spirit" — literally.

In an interview with Moviefone, she says Scarlett Johannson is sweet, maternal and amazingly sexy. She reveals that she finds nudity beauriful and tasteful — but only on a natural body. And she thanks Jennifer Lopez for breaking stereotypes about Latino women and opening a lot of doors.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

About working with Scarlett Johannson:

She's very sweet, and she's very maternal. And of course, she has this amazing look of just being completely, not only beautiful, but extremely, extremely sexy. She just oozes sexuality. Yet there is such a maternal quality in her that is so beautiful that I think people would be kind of surprised and impressed by. And she's smart, but I think you can tell that she's smart. She's a smart cookie.

About that Calvin Klein ad and nudity in general:

I think we're a bit conservative when it comes to nudity and sexuality. And it's so funny because I'd much rather see a beautiful nude of a woman than see these girls with these Triple-D fake boobs in a bikini. To me, that's more vulgar than seeing a beautiful nude of a natural body. ... I'm not against fake breasts at all; I'm not against augmentation. But I think when you get to that point of vulgarity where it's not in proportion, that's more vulgar to me than a beautiful nude.

On nudity in films:

If I'm going to be emotionally naked, sometimes a script will call for me to be physically naked as well. I would never frown upon it. And I think in Hollywood some actresses do frown upon it. They say it like an honor: "I would never do nudity!" And it's like, oh come on! I'm an actress, you know, I'll do what it takes to make my part as honest as it can be.

On Latinos being underrepresented in Hollywood (and how Jennifer Lopez is helping to change that):

When I started in the business 10 years ago, it was pretty pathetic as far as every time I went out for a role in an audition, they really did ask me to do it with a Spanish accent. And I did because I needed work and I was starting out. And there were hardly any roles. But I think I've seen so much progress in the last 10 years... in the last 5 years. ... I have to thank people like Jennifer Lopez, who is definitely a beautiful Latin woman, but she's American. I think she was a pioneer as far as breaking down those stereotypical walls, and I think it's getting better and better as far as the quality roles, absolutely. Now I just need to see more Asian people being represented.

Pamela Anderson Unintentionally Shows Her Breasts

The most shocking thing about the above headline isn't that Pamela Anderson whipped out her lady parts---it's that she did it unintentionally. Now that's what we call a stop-the-presses news (and titty) flash.

While filming an upcoming episode of the Osbourne's new variety show, Osbourned Uploaded (an Osbourne's reality show? Sounds riveting) Pammy had one of those pesky planned wardrobe malfunctions. During a skit called "Guess the Guest" the Osbourne were blindfolded and Pamela was sprawled on the ground (nobody explains why she was on the ground---I guess we'll just have to watch the show and find out! Not.) and when she jolted up, exposed her stretched, ballooned mammaries for the audience.

Large breasts will always have their connoisseurs, if you will, but Pamela Anderson's babies without air brushing could probably double as a feature on Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Here's hoping they still looked somewhat human.

Pamela Anderson Is The Queen Of Fur-Free In Amsterdam

No matter what Pamela Anderson’s ex-husband might think about fur, you can bet the animal-loving starlet will always be against it!!! In preperation for her recent trip to Amsterdam, Pam wrote a letter to Queen Beatrix, asking her to back a current legislative bill that would ban all fur farms in the Netherlands.

In the letter, Pam says:

“Your Majesty: I’m thrilled to be visiting Holland this week not only because of the country’s charm but also because of its progressive outlook on two issues close to my heart: sex and animal rights. These topics overlap when it comes to fur: Nothing has less sex appeal than a fur coat. I was thrilled to learn from PETA and Bont voor Dieren that Holland has banned several kinds of fur farming, and I hope it will consider enacting a ban on all types of fur farming.”

As always, we’re positively thrilled to see Anderson working hard to promote the fur-free lifestyle! To read Pam’s entire letter, visit blog.peta.org!


Katrina is the hottest babe on Google

Looks like Katrina Kaif has finally won the 'Race'! As per a new Google report, Indians couldn't have enough of the leggy beauty on big screen so they spent most of the 2008 searching for this Bollywood siren on the Web.

Recently declared as Asia's sexiest woman, Katrina Kaif has yet again pipped former beauty queen and Bollywood heart-throb Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the most searched for person on the Web, according to Google's India Zeitgeist list for 2008.

Interestingly, Katrina has also outdone her boyfriend and godfather Salman Khan when it comes to being googled on the Net! As for Salman, he may not have been able to set his account straight with Shah Rukh Khan in real life but on the world wide web he has elbowed King Khan, and remains the most searched for actor in India. Shahid Kapoor makes his debut on the list while Genelia D'Souza of Jaane Tu Jaane Na has been declared as one the fastest rising searched for terms on the Net besides Beijing Olympics and IPL!

Bollywood remains one of the most popular Internet search terms ahead of Tamil Cinema when it comes to netizens' interest on movies. As with most of the awards ceremonies, one name that is conspicously missing is none other than Aamir Khan's. After all, Aamir was never in the rat race, more so if it was run on people's keyboards!
