Eva Mendes looks like a sparkling ray of light on the July cover of Marie Claire UK.
The summery spread features the Fast Five actress in a burgundy bedazzled swimsuit catching some sun poolside, or posing like the star she is while in a car.
Eva touches on quite a few things in the accompanying article. The most interesting of all may be what she says about her current boyfriend Ryan Gosling:
"He’s your dream co-star. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film."
She later goes on to talk about her body insecurities and how she finds strength to fight them:
"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.”
You can take a look at all of the sexy pictures of Eva in the gallery above, but if you want to read the entire article, make sure you pick up the July issue of UK Marie Claire on May 30th!
