Eva Mendes proud of banned Calvin Klein commercial
Despite being banned, well... just about everywhere, Eva Mendes says she is proud of her nipple-flashing commercial for Calvin Klein's 'Secret Obsession' fragrance.
"It makes me more proud," she said, referring to the ban. "I'm sure if it was for some kind of independent brand that wasn't as iconic as Calvin Klein, I don't think I would have done it because that's too much of a risk."

The ad, which sees the actress rolling around in bed with just a sheet covering her, sparked alarm bells for network censors in the U.S., prompting them to ban it due its provocative content. Mendes has responded to the decision by claiming that Americans are too uptight about nudity, but are happy to allow so much violence in movies.
"When it's Calvin Klein and it's Steve Meisel shooting you and you get to be a part of this amazing iconic brand and their legacy, you just kind of go for it," she said.
