Actress Eva Mendes isn’t afraid to admit that she uses her sex-symbol status to help her secure film roles.

“I don’t allow myself to be typecast, but when I have to turn up the heat and turn up the sexuality and I do an amazing Calvin Klein campaign it’s very conscious, that’s no accident. It’s very methodical on my part,” Mendes explained. “If I feel it’s appropriate to show some nudity in the scenes then I go for it. As much as I use my sexuality, I have never felt exploited. I feel like it’s on my terms and I have no problem with it.”

And while Mendes is one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood who has likely been all around the world, interestingly enough, she only made her first visit to the hurricane-torn New Orleans while filming her latest crime drama “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” in August last year.

“It was exciting because we brought business there, but it was pretty devastating. I was in shock at some parts, I hadn’t been there ever so I was still in shock that this happened in our country,” Mendes told us while promoting the flick. “I felt we were somewhere else in certain areas. Our government failed this; you can see they failed this. It was pretty intense.”
