We love Eva Mendes because she ain’t afraid to call a spade a spade — or a power-fuelled diva a power-fuelled diva, as the case may be. In an interview with ES Magazine in London, Eva lays it all on the line to try and firmly bury those comparisons to Jennifer Lopez.
“I would like to think I will have a more serious career than J-Lo. We may both be of Latino origin, but that’s where the comparisons stop. She manages her career like the head of a big corporation, whereas the only thing I care about is becoming the best actress possible.”
Whoah. And J.Lo could probably fire your ass as well — but Eva didn’t stop there!
“I would never consider going out with another actor because it’s always difficult to have two egocentric people in one relationship. It’s a smaller circle than you realize and everybody has slept with everybody. It’s this sex-recycling machine and I don’t want to be part of it.”
Quite. But we love you Eva! Come round to our house and play “Six Degrees Of Sex-eration” with us. We want to know exactly who’s been, er, “recycling” who. [Photo: Getty Images]
