Eva Mendes is the cover girl for the latest issue of Marie Claire and she is doing it well… really well. Aside from the extremely sexy shoot she did, Eva gushed about her relationship with Ryan Gosling as well as opening up about her former insecurities.
“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.”
That is so very spot on. I love that she pointed it out. If we are all meant to be cookie cutter type people…. well, I want out. I love individuality. Let it shine.
