Eva Mendes W MagazineIncontrovertible fact: Eva Mendes and "sexy" go together. But with her role in Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's 'The Other Guys,' the 36-year-old actress is looking to add a generous layer of "hilarious" onto her image.

Her first comic role has her playing a "Knicks dancer-turned-doctor married to a dunderhead of a forensics cop (Ferrell) who doesn't realize what a babe his wife is," W magazine writes in their new cover story.

After the jump, Mendes talks nudity (doesn't faze her), comic acting (comes naturally) and her ethnicity (Cuban parents or not, she's an American gal).
