While we admire Eva Mendes‘ willingness to pose nude for her “art” (be it a Calvin Klein ad or Training Day), we can’t say we’d use the same terminology she uses her W Magazine cover story. For instance, while her brief masturbation scene with an amorous Joaquin Phoenix in 2007′s We Own The Night was certainly enjoyable, we figured it was more “Mr. Skin mpeg” than “Oscar reel.” But we were wrong! ““I remember calling my acting coach after seeing that first scene and telling her how embarrassed I felt, and she said, ‘It means you bared your soul.’ I was like, ‘Right,’…I’d never felt that before.” Hear that, Kendra Wilkinson? You didn’t bare your hole in that sex tape, you bared your soul. That’s why you’re embarrassed.
Don’t take Eva’s romantic perspective on screencap-bait for naivete, though. “I know I walk a fine line between being a respected actor and being what they call a sex symbol,” she tells the mag.. “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 might act like it’s an accident, but the opposite is true. I’m incredibly calculated when it comes to my career.” For some reason we don’t feel like complaining about her math.

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards included some style highlights (Kristen Stewart‘s D&G mini, Sandra Bullock‘s mile-high Louboutins, Whitney Port‘s Yigal Azrouël yellow dress), but for every perfect 10, a belly flop lurked within arm’s reach. What was Katy Perry thinking?! Who let Lindsay Lohan out of the house? And would the real Christina Aguilera please stand up?! Here are our Top 10 WTF fashion moments from the star-filled evening.
10. Katy Perry
Offense #1: Katy Perry’s bright blue wig clashes with her bright yellow nails. Add hundreds of shiny rhinestones to the equation and you get something resembling a human sparkler.
Plus Side: She still looks hot!
9. Snowboarder Shaun White
Offense #1: We know the 60s and 70s are in style, but do we really want to see man nipple on our MTV Movie Awards red carpet? Leave the bare-chested vest to the gang members of 1979′s The Warriors.
Offense #2: We respect that Shaun’s hair has become iconic, but it was iconic for Robert Plant too!
Plus Side: We’d like Shaun’s vest if there were a shirt underneath it.

This year’s MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Aziz Ansari, will be just like the Oscars — except sillier, sexier and probably more fun. Christina Aguilera is making her big comeback performance; Katy Perry‘s promising to get naked (don’t hold your breath); the Jersey Shore cast will flaunt their Miami tans; and Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are presenting a new “Eclipse” clip. Stay with us as we break down the hotties and notties of the Movie Awards in our shared chat with MTV and BWE.tv.
There was no shortage of indisputably gorgeous gowns at the Met’s Costume Gala last night. Everyone can agree that Anne Hathaway, Gwen Stefani, and Kate Hudson looked drop-dead. What’s still irking us this afternoon are five starlets we love that got caught somewhere in between the best and the worst.
1. Tina Fey: It’s quite plausible that our love for Tina in general has fogged our fashion critique. Her zipped jumper isn’t hideous, but is it appropriate for a gala?
2. Eva Mendes: When you’re as stunning as Eva Mendes, it’s a feat to look bad. Big florals are usually a big risk for the red carpet, but we kind of love her form-fitting mermaid gown.
3. Blake Lively: Yes, her legs go on for days. Yes, she’s radiant. But doesn’t this barely-there get-up look a little too Dancing with the Stars?
4. Kristen Stewart: We can’t picture KStew’s edgy Chanel frock on anyone else in young Hollywood, but somehow her badass attitude, twiggy legs, and a pair of sky-high pumps made it work.
5. Naomi Watts: We love Watts’ pairing of red lips with her dark pink satin gown. Is the giant ruffle on her shoulder too much or tres chic?
Help us, readers! We won’t be able to sleep tonight without deciding if this quintet of ladies rocked or flopped.

Halle Berry has struck out again. According to Radar Online, Berry and Gabriel Aubry, her boyfriend of 4 years, have hashed out a custody deal for their daughter Nahla after the male model decided he was no longer invested in their relationship. “When they were first together the 9-year age difference between them didn’t phase him, she was the most beautiful woman he had ever dated and he was totally in love. But as time went on he started feeling it more and more,” says their source. “Also, Gabriel started noticing other women, and being attracted to other, and he felt it just wasn’t right to stay with Halle in those circumstances.” Ouch—at least he didn’t come out as a sex addict like ex-husband Eric Benet.
If Berry’s humiliated by her latest romantic loss (she admitted her relationship with Aubry might not be “forever” in an interview last year), she wasn’t showing it at the DKMS gala and leukemia benefit last night. See photos of Berry on the red carpet last night and pics of her, Gabriel and Nahla in happier times below.

Eva Mendes‘ sexy Calvin Klein ads may have startled some, but the Bad Lieutent: Port Of Call New Orleans actress knows exactly what she’s doing. “When I have to turn up the heat and turn up the sexuality and I do an amazing Calvin Klein campaign it’s very conscious, that’s no accident,” Mendes recently told Fox. “It’s very methodical on my part.” Well, that’s a relief! We’d hate to think she just accidentally showed up sweaty and half-naked on set. That nipple slip last weekend wasn’t a wardrobe malfunction, it was a strategic move in the erotic chess game that is her career. “As much as I use my sexuality, I have never felt exploited. I feel like it’s on my terms and I have no problem with it.”
Opening CK’s new store in Milan yesterday gave Eva further opportunity to practice her method. Watch the artist survey her work in the gallery below.
While we hate to imagine it was the highlight of the night, Jennifer Aniston‘s rendition of “Yellow Submarine” was apparently one of the most memorable moments from last night’s 24-Hour Play event on Broadway, which raised money for the Urban Arts Partnership. Aniston and her pals acted out 6 10-minute scenes that were written, cast and performed within a 24-hour period. Apparently a bit of a date night, some of the couples attending included Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore, Naomi Watts & Liev Schreiber, Emily Blunt & John Krasinski and David Cross & Amber Tamblyn. See who else came out for the kids in the gallery below.

Make up your mind, NYC! Should Eva Mendes wear a bra or not? Just as her sexy new billboard for Calvin Klein underwear was drawing stares in Soho, the Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans star was getting looks in person for going without. Making the rounds to support her new movie, Eva seemed in need of a little support herself last night at a Manhattan screening. Posing alongside Susan Sarandon (no stranger to breast baring herself), she seemed indifferent to the occasional flash she gave photographers. Eva’s sexy, New York City! Deal with it!
Check out the racy, potentially NSFW pics in the gallery below.
Nicolas Cage wasn’t able to make it to the AFI Film Festival screening of Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans in LA yesterday, but his female co-stars brought plenty of crazy in his absence. Eva Mendes wore a dress entirely made out of old gum…sorry, sequins…and Fairuza Balk‘s black leather gown took us all back to The Craft. But sometimes less is more, as proven by Spice Girl Melanie Brown, whose decision to attend sans pants caught plenty of eyes. It was like something out of a Werner Herzog movie…oh wait, this is one!
