The actress seems to be extremely enthusiastic about the character and the movie in general as she goes on to say, “There was something about the image that sparked my, you know, that little teenage….

Eva Mendes has taken it a step above others when it comes to obsession as she confesses “So, anyway, I do have it. I’m wearing it right now.” Her comedic justification also fits the bill as she says “People do know he’s not playing a real person. He’s playing a fake person!
