We remember when we saw "Training Day" for the first time and Eva Mendes showed up and we were all like, "Whoa! Who is that? Oh yeah, it's the hottie from 'Urban Legends: Final Cut'!"
Since way back then, Eva has brought class to gritty crime dramas like "We Own the Night," kept her dignity as a cursed superhero's ladylove in "Ghost Rider" and held her own against exhausting Will Ferrell shenanigans in "The Other Guys." This week, she'll be going to "The Place Beyond the Pines" with Ryan Gosling, and we want to go there with her.
Check out our collection of pics of Eva Mendes in movies and on the red carpet. You'll be glad you did.
