Eva Mendes, Interview Magazine

Interview Magazine

Don't look for Eva Mendes to be spillin' all about her visit to rehab.

"There are so many lies out there regarding my recent trip to Cirque Lodge," the starlet says in the new Interview magazine, out July 15. "But I don't care what people think. I just don't care. So I will neither confirm or deny."

Mendes actually feels better when stories are wrong rather right...

"But for all the stuff that came out a few months ago about substance abuse, there were so many wrong stories," she says. "I was so happy about that, because it's when they get the real scoop that would make me really nervous…You want it to be a lie, because when it's true, that's when I'd be like, 'Oh, my God!' It's time to rethink who's in your circle, because stuff got out."

Mendes also sounds off on the obstacles she faces as a Latina in Hollywood, including not being considered for the same parts as her pal Drew Barrymore. "But it's like, 'No we want more of an American type of girl,'" she explains. "And it's like, American has opened up. I'm an American girl, born and raised. I mean, I was into New Kids on the Block, just like Drew! Actually, I shouldn't say that. I don't know if she was. I'm going to text her on that one."

(For the record, Barrymore is shooting right now and couldn't be reached to ask if she is, in fact, a New Kids fan, but her rep did respond, "We do love Eva, though!")
