Eva Mendes For W Magazine July 2010

Eva Mendes shows plenty of boobage on the cover of W Magazine’s July 2010 edition, wearing a mustard Miu Miu Fall 2010 dress which was shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.

The sultry bombshell talks about performing in the nude, her love of comedy, and drive to be considered a serious actress.

Her editorial sees her wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci, Louis Vuitton and Prada.

Here are some extracts:

On performing in the nude: “I’ve never had a problem with nudity, but I don’t put it out there without a reason. I’m not an exhibitionist. But, honestly, for my art I’ll do anything almost. I’ll go there.”

On whether nudity makes her feel objectified: “I know I walk a fine line between being a respected actor and being what they call a sex symbol. It’s a hard one to walk if you want to be known as a real, credible actor. But I’ve never felt objectified. Nothing you see me do is an accident. . . . I’m incredibly calculated when it comes to my career.”

On her latest comedy, The Other Guy: “It’s very hard for me to be seen as funny. And the truth is, that’s where I’m most comfortable.”

On her own dual passions: “I’m a modern woman in the sense of I take care of myself, I’m fiercely independent, and I’m really ambitious. Yet I have these old-school thoughts in my mind. I do like to belong to a man. I love having a man in my life, and being his woman at the end of the day. I know it’s a dichotomy.”

On her ethnicity: “I don’t consider myself a Latin American actress. I was born and raised here, and I have Cuban parents, but for me, I am the new American girl. It’s not only Drew Barrymore and the blond Mid-western girl. This, [pointing to her face] is also what we look like now.”
