March-2012---Eva-Mendes230.jpgEva Mendes is calling her beau Ryan Gosling a "dream," and we couldn't agree with her more!

The sexy Latina, who is gracing the cover of March's Marie Claire, is talking about working alongside her sexy man on the movie The Place Beyond The Pines. She tells the mag:

    “He’s your dream costar. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film.”

When asked about her body image, Eva adds:

    "It doesn’t matter what you have or what you look like. It’s something everyone has to work at. I realize I have contributed to a certain happy, healthy, empowered image, but that’s not all of me. I feel it’s important to let women know that I have similar struggles ... When I am complimented on things that I didn’t like when I was 13, like my overbite and my mole, that’s when you realize that your imperfections are why people love you.”

As for her idols, Mendes says she has "a girl crush" on Julianne Moore and Annette Bening.
