Behind every bumbling cop is…a hot wife?! It's true, at least in new comedy "The Other Guys." While conventional casting would match Eva Mendes with someone like Mark Wahlberg, this time she plays Will Ferrell's better (looking) half. Here, Eva opens up to Allure about her working-class upbringing, fears of being too sexy, and more.
On increasing her self-acceptance and her acceptance of others through meditation:
"I have worked very hard to love myself, and I do. I think that's what people may respond to with me. 'Cause there are a ton of beautiful girls in this business with beautiful bodies."
