Joaquin phoenix and eva mendes dating
And were spotted during the day time together as well ... Until this time, Eva Mendes is denying rumors that shes dating co-star Joaquin Phoenix.
Opening up tomorrow at theaters everywhere is “We Own the Night,” the new film by James Gray (“The Yards,” “Little Odessa”).
Eva Mendes: Yeah, and believe it or not that wasn’t what made me not…that wasn’t one of the reasons I didn’t respond.
I just felt like she was too much the girlfriend once the story started unraveling.
In the movie Eva plays the girlfriend of Joaquin Phoenix, and even though this kind of role is often just a token character, I thought Eva was great and she absolutely disappeared into her character. For Bobby, every night is a party, as he greets friends and customers or dances with his beautiful Puerto Rican girlfriend, Amada (Eva Mendes), in a haze of cigarette smoke and disco music. Bobby tries to keep a friendly distance from the Russian gangster who is operating out of the nightclub – a gangster who is being targeted by his brother, Joseph (Mark Wahlberg), an up-and-coming NYPD officer, and his father, Burt (Robert Duvall), the legendary deputy chief of police.
We Own the Night, an emotional crime thriller about a man who has chosen to hide his past only to discover that he has to confront an inevitable future, takes its title from the motto of the 1980s-era During our 20 minutes with Eva she discussed why she took the role, she talked about her sex scene, working with the cast and what she has coming up.
The couple were spotted dining together at a New York restaurant on Monday night.I’ve been really selective in my career to play like independent women or women who have something to overcome of course, but to not be just the girlfriend cause you can fall into that hole so easily, you know?He came back to me 6 months later and the script…you know the role was a little better but I say like no, no, no and then a year later he came back to me with a more enhanced role and then he said Joaquin Phoenix is definitely playing the role of Bobby and then I go well, maybe.Joe and Bert ask him to help with intelligence gathering; he declines.Then, Joe raids Bobby's club to arrest the Russian.
