Eva Mendes is an American actress and model. Described as one of the most beautiful Latin women, she knows that she has to “walk a fine line between being a respected actor and what they call a sex symbol.” In interviews, she has spoken freely about nudity, giving emphasis on the fact that her sexuality does not actually describe her. Let us look into some of her quotes in which she not only tries to define herself, but also talks about the trend to criticize nudity rather than violence in cinemas.  Let us also find what she thinks about marriage, the kind of men she would like to have in her life and her temper.

I don't go to premieres. I attend film openings I'm in, and that's about it. Fame and celebrity doesn't matter to me. The longevity of my career does.

The celebrity world can be so ugly. Everyone seems to have slept with everyone else and it's some sort of strange weird cycle. I don't want to get into that.

It's challenging being a woman. There are other kinds of obstacles that come your way, but there are many times that being Latin has actually helped me, being a Cuban-American has helped me.

The careers that I admire and actually try to emulate are those of Julianne Moore and Annette Bening. Those women, to me, make amazing choices. They're sexy, beautiful women, but that doesn't dictate their choices.

I'm very free with my sexuality, but not everywhere all the time. I pick and choose when I do nudity, and who I do it for when I'm working, and when I'm doing it. I've done nudity twice in a film.

I always see something for sure one time and then I make myself see it a second time. Because second time is like, 'OK, I'm not that bad. I'm not that horrible.' But the first time I just think I'm god-awful.

It's the scariest thing in the world, going to acting class, because first of all, there's a lot of pressure. I just go back to being that fourth grader who couldn't, like, sit still in her seat.
