Eva Mendes To Play Maria Callas On The Big Screen

May 20th, 2011 11:22am EDT
Maria Callas
Eva Mendes is set to portray opera star Maria Callas in an upcoming biopic.

The actress will play the soprano in Greek Fire, based on a book about the singer's tumultuous love life.

And she admits it's a role she couldn't turn down - because Gosford Park screenwriter Julian Fellowes penned the script specifically for Mendes.

She tells Britain's The Independent, "Julian Fellowes wrote a script for me based on the relationship between Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis, and as Julian Fellowes wrote it for me I couldn't say no to it."

Eva Mendes
Actress Eva Mendes is desperate to learn how to swim now that she has a pool.

The sexy 2 Fast 2 Furious and Hitch star insists her fear of the water is something she has to overcome and she's committed to taking lessons.

She says, "I can't swim. I don't know how to. I'm pathetic... I should know how to swim.

"I'm finally in a house, where I have my own pool and I'm like, 'OK, I'm gonna learn', (but) it's been a year now and I still just stick to the shallow (end).

"I'm the kind of girl, like, I see fear and... I go and I face fear... and this is the one, like, my last arena that I've go...

The stars stepped out in a vast array of looks. Fergie wore a very cleavage-heavy gown, while new mom Miranda Kerr looked like a ballerina.

This Week's Fashion Fails: Amy Poehler, Jessica Simpson & Eva Mendes

April 30th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
Eva Mendes
Bad fashion went bi-coastal this week, and you won't believe how bad things got. Take a look at this week's fashion fails...

Oh no, Amy Poehler. The awkward fit and shiny fabric or her "Time 100" dress are so bad, they almost distract us from that giant flower print. Almost.

Jessica Simpson stepped out for Us Weekly's "Hot in Hollywood" party, but that dress just isn't working. The high neckline and busy pattern do nothing for her curvy body.

And Eva Mendes' dress disaster is more mother-of-the-bride than Hollywood hottie.

Eva Mendes Fears Being A 'Messed Up Mom'

April 30th, 2011 10:30am EDT
Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes fears Hollywood thinks she'll make a terrible mom because the two times she has played mothers on film, her characters have been a mess.

The lovely Latina played a mom in her first big film, "Training Day," and she has just shot an indie movie in which she's an awful mother to "a perfect angel."

She tells WENN, "It's a wonderful little coming of age story about me and this little girl. I'm her very messed up mother and she is my little perfect angel who starts rebelling against me because I'm a mess; a very flawed character.

Eva Mendes: 'I Don't Think Marriage Is Necessary'

April 27th, 2011 12:37pm EDT
Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes is adamant she'll never walk down the aisle - because married life is "boring".

The Hitch actress has been dating filmmaker George Augusto since 2002, but the pair has never taken the next step to make the union official.

And Mendes insists the tradition of marriage is no longer relevant.

She says, "I just don't think marriage is necessary, as necessary as society makes it. And I don't have a negative point of view on it. I just think it's a very old tradition and if you look back to what marriage symbolizes in the first place... it has nothing to do with why we get married ...

2010 Celebrity Fashion Fail
The definition of fail: "The state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective and may be viewed as the opposite of success." Where there is success there is always failure, and this year there were lots of star-powered failures on the red carpet and out and about in public.

Take a look back at some serious celebrity fashion fails from 2010:

Bonnie Somerville showed up to the Trevor Live Fundraiser at the Hollywood Palladium looking like a hot mess. While revealing underwear is hot right now, it has to be done right.

Blinded By The Fashion At The 2010 MTV Movie Awards

Katy Perry
This year's MTV Movie Awards almost put me into epileptic shock. Everywhere in the audience, and on stage, women were wearing gowns completely saturated in sparkles. It seems that fashion designers are becoming a little happy with their bedazzle guns.

I consider the worst dressed to be Lindsay Lohan’s pant suit. If she was performing in “Hair” then maybe, just maybe, she could have gotten away with it. However, this is probably one of the only times Lohan came to an event where she could bend over to pick up a penny and the world not see her crouch.

Second below her was Christina Aguilera...
