Eva Mendes has slammed critics for comments that her body looks thin and skeletal in her recently shot Calvin Klein Underwear advertisement campaign. “I don't have a starving body. I have a healthy toned body. I don't think people should criticise my advert. I prepped for it a lot and I think it's great. It was in the desert and we were all oiled up for it.
That's my job!" Contactmusic quoted her as saying. In the advertisement, the
We Own the Night
actress poses alongside actor Jamie Dornan on a sandy beach wearing just undergarments. The bombshell also featured in the Calvin Klein Secret Obsession advert last year in which she was seen writhing topless on a bed.
The advert was later banned after the US bosses said it was ‘too sexy’ for family viewing. However, Mendes loved the advert, she said: "I love it. That means the ads are totally Calvin, totally provocative and a little controversial. "In the commercial you'll see me rolling around in bed a lot, that's basically all I do. I have been a fan of Calvin Klein's Obsession ads since I can remember.
"I love to feel super-feminine. I love dresses and skirts and dislike jeans. I think what makes a woman sexy is confidence.”
