In the March issue of Marie Claire, the actress gushes unapologetically about her love for Ryan … as a co-star.
The couple has yet to comment on their relationship, but Mendes spoke of him briefly in her interview when she mentioned he was her “dream co-star.”
“He’s your dream costar. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film.”
The couple has been dating for nearly six months, but Eva kept the focus of the interview on track with mentions of her new film with her beau, The Place Beyond The Pines, her plans to take on edgier roles, and the struggles that people have with 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.”
The 37-year-old Eva worked an embellished bustier on the cover of the fashion magazine, and inside reclined in the back of a car in a vintage-inspired lace bra.
