Eva Mendes Slender Defence

Eva Mendes has defended her slender frame.

The 'We Own the Night' actress has lashed out at critics who have commented her body looks thin and skeletal in her recently-shot Calvin Klein Underwear advertisement campaign.

The 35-year-old beauty stripped down to her underwear for the steamy images in which she poses alongside actor Jamie Dornan on a sandy beach.

She said: "I don't have a starving body. I have a healthy toned body. I don't think people should criticise my advert. I prepped for it a lot and I think it's great. It was in the desert and we were all oiled up for it. That's my job!"

Last year, a Calvin Klein Secret Obsession advert featuring the dark-haired beauty writhing topless on a bed was banned from television after US bosses branded it too sexy.

At the time, Eva said she was "thrilled" with its saucy nature.

She said: "I love it. That means the ads are totally Calvin, totally provocative and a little controversial.

"In the commercial you'll see me rolling around in bed a lot, that's basically all I do. I have been a fan of Calvin Klein's Obsession ads since I can remember.

"I love to feel super-feminine. I love dresses and skirts and dislike jeans. I think what makes a woman sexy is confidence."
