This is the tale of a sadly underutilized instrument of beauty finally being recognized and appreciated. After a slew of straight-to-video outings (Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror ) and blink-and-you'll-miss-her roles (A Night at the Roxbury ), Latina hottie Eva Mendes writhed and quaked into mass ass consciousness as the busty, underdressed girlfriend of Denzel Washington in Training Day (2001). Her stock only rose from there, landing plum roles in big hit films like the Fast and the Furious franchise, The Other Guys (2010), and the Werner Herzog-directed, Nicolas Cage-starring Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009)! She also balanced those with some skin-baring roles like when she gave the world another lusty look at one mamnificent maraca in We Own the Night (2007) and again in a nip-slipping too-hot-for-TV commercial for Calvin Klein perfume in 2008. Also that year, she bared her beautifully bountiful booty in The Spirit (2008), and even slipped a little nip in the art-house hit Holy Motors (2012)!
