Eloi *

Mostly famous for rolling around in the buff while selling perfume, Eva Mendes was recently interviewed by Allure magazine. She briefly discussed this promotional photo for the film 2 Fast 2 Furious, in which she had a starring role.

"I was new to the business, but I would have killed this picture because I don't like the image of the gun. Even though I was playing a police officer, there's no reason for it! I'm over the image of a woman with a gun. I'm over the issue of anybody with a gun. I have evolved."

She has evolved...into prey.

Joe Allen said...

I bet she does like her Morlock bodyguards.

Let's hope that if she ever encounters real trouble, the people she calls on for help aren't similarly "enlightened".

Or maybe it'd be best if they were.

Dozy cow.

Rick R said...

At least the other Eva (Longoria) isn't prey. She HUNTS!

wv: fight (no kidding) something Ms Mendes apparently doesn't know how to do.

Boo Hoo shame on me for letting my picture be taken with GUN.

Eloi, tastes just like chicken.

I find Hollywood amazing, as in amazingly stupid. As prevalent as violence and casual weapons use is in films, there are sooo many of the "stars" who "don't like guns". Of course, if I made 15-20 million a year and could afford a fenced, guarded estate and 24-hr a day armed guards, I could afford to "not like guns" as well. However, I am not of the "elite" and have to depend on myself for protection. God bless the cops, but chances are they won't be around if someone kicks my door in or jumps me in a parking lot.

I didn't know "Retard" was in the human evolutionary chain.

rickn8or said...

So.

Is she going to give back the money she made from 2 Fast 2 Furious?

LabRat said...

Well, technically speaking, organisms that go from free-living to parasitic have evolved too. Evolution does not imply progress...

Bruce said...

As opposed to the image of a woman getting stabbed a couple dozen times and doused in gasoline by her estranged husband in the Dollar Store parking lot.

Quite the evolutionary thinking she's got going on there.

DirtCrashr said...

I guess it's nice (or something) that she thinks that she even can evolve - but she isn't, can't, and hasn't. It doesn't work that way with people, and especially not one like her.

Another vapid broad from Hollywierd.

Yawn.

A-MEN! If Ms. Mendez and her fellow actors "don't like guns", then may I suggest that they decline to appear in films that portray gun violence, even by fictional police officers or soldiers?

Yeah, like THAT will ever happen...

Hollywood has such an easy time. For years, they were paid and unpaid advertizers of the tobacco industry; actors in movies smoked like chimneys. Now, of course, Hollywood is self-righteously AGAINST smoking... unless "the script" calls for it. Ditto sex and violence.

Do as I say, not as I do.

Grrr...

That is an awesome looking Benelli shotgun; I must get one of those.
Eva who?

hairy hobbit said...

It's not JUST the actors, lots of the support staff in hollyweird are whackjobs.

Then there are the FX guys turned directors who move back to Ohio and are pretty damn cool.

As for Ms rapist bait there, she's welcome to go to her parents homeland of Cuba to get in touch with what it's like to NOT have the right to own weapons. Maybe she can chat it up with Elian about what it's like to be kidnapped at gunpoint by government types to be sent to a communist hell hole. Make sure to leave the bodyguards and entourage behind for an authentic experience.

Miz Minka said...

De-evolved is more like it.

Ahab said...

I think that's actually the FN police shotgun she's toting.

And she's still hot enough to melt my shorts off, I don't give a damn if she's dumber than a bucket full of hammers.

I take that back. Hammers are useful, and I should insult them like that.

What's with the index finger on the sling loop?

Justin said...

That is probably where the "adviser" told her to put her finger, begause all LEOs do it that way.
What other profession consists of individuals doing something that they may find questionable for money?

Joe Skilton said...

Let's mention Oleg Volk. There are many pictures on his site of women with guns, advancing the sentiment that 'Evolved' people Use Tools.
