Eva Mendes checked her hot ass into Utah’s Cirque Lodge rehab facility last January for “personal issues.” Star Magazine (via SF Gate) claims Eva was actually researching a film role. Eva plays a Spanish drug lord in the movie “Queen of the South.” Her character flees Mexico for Spain when her drug-runner boyfriend is murdered. Errr…..what does this have to do with rehab?
An acting coach told the magazine, “It’s not unusual at all for an actor or actress to go to the extreme of checking into rehab to prepare for a character. In fact, I would encourage that for my students, because you want to fully immerse yourself in the role.”
Nice try, Eva. If this is true, she checked herself into the wrong joint. The bitch really should have gone undercover in an acting school.
Hopefully, she’ll play Charles Manson in her next movie and check into prison for a long ass time in order to “research” the role.
