(Actress)Eva Mendes loves nudity but hates violence
timesofindia.indiatimes.com ^ | 25 Aug 2008, 1730 hrs IST, ANI

American actress Eva Mendes, who had jetted off to Australia for the 30 Days of Fashion and Beauty festival, was irked when her risque appearance in a Calvin Klein fragrance ad was cut off for showing too much skin.

In the ad, Mendes could be seen naked and rolling about on a bed, which revealed too much to suit the conservative US audiences.

"I''m completely American, I was born and raised in America and I love it but I think we are too quick to censor nudity," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as telling fashion editor Jen Melocco.

I tend to agree with her. I tired to watch a movie called "Shoot'em up" and it was stupid and pointless.

Someone should tell her - we are paying for photos of your body. You do not need to speak.

If you think that one was bad, then you haven’t watched “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”. Don’t waste your time.

I don't know of a Patton quote on nudity. He may have been in favor of that as well.

Its the nipple that did it. I frankly never saw the big deal about showing them. How else did we get fed as babies anyway?

Interestingly, she keeps talking about love while she touches herself, leading one to believe she loves...herself! What a surprise!
Saw her in a Denzel Washington movie last night. It was pretty good, and she IS pretty. I’m so glad I’m a woman and don’t HAVE to see her naked to feel complete! ;)

I think the vast majority of American babies were fed with a different sort of nipple, and I think you can show those anywhere. ;)

The only thing I didn't like about the commercial was the mole on her face. I find moles to be hideous and disgusting. She should have it removed.

Seventy-seven percent of American babies are breastfed.

Sorry. It does nothing for me, except make me think of what a waste of film it is. I prefer my women smiling. When women fake a lusty, come-hither look, it looks . . .well, faked!

so they give a full explicit show of the nipple.

This is not even the butt show/shot they allow on broadcast TV these days.

This is an intentional controversy fake for cheep PR.

I find that stat to be difficult to believe. Where did you get it? To my sadness, almost all of the new mothers I know either don’t breast feed at all, or do so for only a very short time (measured in weeks).

Statistics are from the National Center for Health Statistics, a part of the Center for Disease Control. You can google it, it’s the first site that pops up.

Doncha know that we men simply are unable to control ourselves in the presence of an exposed female nipple. We will at that point require having sex with 3 or 4 willing or unwilling women, we don't really care which.

Eva's got a major point, though. The exposed nipple means the commercial is a non-starter. We can, however, surfing basic cable on late Sunday afternoon, swing by SciFi showing Dawn of the Dead, in which one of the zombie's heads in literally blown off on screen.

It does say something (and I'm not sure what) about a culture that fears the appearance of the female nipple but has no issue with heads being blown off.

I don’t care enough to go to that much trouble if you can’t provide a url. All I can say is I suspect that stat refers to the number who are breastfed EVER AT ALL (ie, even a few days in the hospital) and that it’s self reporting. While I think breastfeeding even for a few days is better than nothing, it doesn’t make us much of a breastfeeding population.
However, I would LOVE to see most Moms do it. It has much to recommend it.
I also have been surprised at how few mothers to be I know who even consider having a childbirth without drugs. But, times change.

Don’t blame me for inciting male hormones. I just use fashion, and clothes have no affect on men with brains. Of course I am dissapointed with my man who fails to respond to my incitement of his male hormones, but that does not mean that all men react hormonally to my slut photos... /s

Perhaps it’s because it’s the difference in a real nipple and a fake zombie head? However, since there are so many outlets these days for those who choose to to see all the nipples they could possibly desire, why is Eva (or anyone else) concerned? And of course, the other difference is probably that it’s a commercial, so an unsuspecting family might be watching something with their kids, and suddenly there it is, whereas they could choose NOT to watch the exploding zombiehead movie. I personally am sick to death of viagra ads too. Are most men in this country impotent? (that might actually explain a lot of things!)

The “male enhancement” commercials really annoy me (and, yes, I carry a Y chromosome and two marbles). Don’t get me started on those late night infomercials about “internal cleansing” where they guy obsesses about his baby daughter’s bowel movements.

LOL. OK. I’ll try another tack.

The commercial cannot be viewed because of the appearance of a nipple. No, wait. I mean the female nipple. There is absolutely no problem in showing the male nipple. Both genders have them, usually a matching pair, but only the functional ones have to be covered up at all times.

Thank you. It was as I guessed:

* The percentage of infants who were ever breastfed increased from 60% among infants who were born in 1993-1994 to 77% among infants who were born in 2005-2006.
* There was no significant change in the rate of breastfeeding at 6 months of age for infants born between 1993 and 2004.

So, the it's hard to tell much from this other than that more mothers are at least trying it. But, even if they just breastfeed for a few days they are considered to have breast fed their infant. I think the more telling stat is the one that says that there was no change in the rate of breastfeeding at 6 months. I wish they had also done one at 4 months. I'm glad more moms are trying it, but I'm sad that they are not sticking with it.
