Eva Mendes in Nov. issue of Maxim

Here are a couple of pics from Eva Mendes' Maxim article, issue on newsstands now.

Your new movie, We Own the Night, opens with a pretty explicit scene between you and Joaquin Phoenix. What was that day at work like?
Eva: It was tough. That morning I was so nervous that the director was like, “Why don’t you put a little vodka in your orange juice?” So I did. It took the edge off.

M: Is it bizarre to watch your own sex scenes?
Eva: It’s weird to see myself in bed with Joaquin up on the big screen. I told my mom she has to come 15 minutes late. She wouldn’t live through that first scene—she’d have a heart attack. The poor lady would keel over in the movie theater.
