Kate del Castillo
Tonight, La Reina del Sur starts a second run on Mun2. The popular telenovela stars Kate del Castillo as Teresa Mendoza, who becomes the toughest woman in the Mexican drug world.

I recently sat down with Kate to ask her about the experience of playing 'The Queen of the North,' and the show having a second life.

Why this role, and how did it come to you?

I read the book probably ten to twelve years ago, and as an actress, you picture yourself doing a role like this. They were going to do the movie and I tried to seek this role [out] and I couldn't. Finally I stopped because Eva Mend...

Ryan Gosling: 'I'd Like To Be Making Babies But I'm Not'

Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling is eager to cut down on his busy work schedule so he can settle down and start "making babies."

The hunk, 30, admits he's been putting his career above his personal life for too long, blaming the pressure of Hollywood for his failed romances with "the greatest girlfriends" Rachel McAdams and Sandra Bullock.

He tells Britain's The Times newspaper, "I had two of the greatest girlfriends of all time. I haven't met anybody who could top them.... Showbusiness is the bad guy. When both people are in show business it's too much showbusiness. It takes all of the light, so nothing els...

The Hitch actress told a judge she has been living in "constant fear" of John C. Luna, who allegedly believes he is in a relationship with her and that she is "willing to die for him." Mendes also claims Luna has been harassing her since 2008 and even showed up at her Los Angeles home in May.

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."

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.

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

4/30/2011 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 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'

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.

Will was delighted his colleagues seemed to love his food and devoured every lunch - but now he's been left licking his wounds after they confessed he's useless in the kitchen.

Eva Longoria-Parker and Eva Mendes brought out the glamor to two different events this week. Which actress made the better impression?

Mendes posed for photographs at the premiere of her new film "Last Night" during the 35th Toronto Film Festival in Canada. She wore a long black sequined gown. We wish she was showing a little more skin and less fabric!

Longoria-Parker attended the Par Coeur Gala in Paris with her husband Tony Parker. She also opted for a long dress, but hers was strapless. She's the epitome of Hollywood glamor, don't you think?
