Eva Mendes covers the October 2013 issue of Lucky
magazine. She's wearing a Jason Wu python jacket on the cover. In the Lucky interview
, Eva talks about what she's willing to do for a role and her New York & Company collection.
On What She's Willing to Do For a Role
: "Weight is not my issue. I'll do anything for a role. For A Place Beyond the Pines, I exercised a lot. I wanted my character to feel really depleted. But my mom didn't understand why I would want to look that way. She's constantly telling me I'm too skinny!"
On Her New York & Company Collaboration
: "There are days when I don't feel great, but I put on my favorite dress and throw a scarf in my hair, and it makes all the difference. Hopefully my line can do that for women. Even if you're not feeling your best, let's admit it, the right outfit - it helps."
On Who Her Customer Is
: "My customer is not a fan of the way tabloids cover celebrity style: 'Who wore it best?' It's disastrous for women's self-esteem. With fashion, there is no right or wrong."
