Eva Mendes Drank Vodka before Sex Scenes with Joaquin Phoenix

So.

Apparently Eva Mendes had to calm her nerves before filming sex scenes with Joaquin Phoenix.

You know, THIS #guy.

Uh huh.

Pardon me while I drop my jaw with incredulity, shall you?

Ah, all done.

She revealed: "I wasn’t comfortable at all, but they were very sweet and they poured me a vodka and orange juice and then I was fine.

"I’m very professional and I don’t usually drink on the job but that morning I had to have something.

It was my first

He did it at the end of the shoot, so it was the last day and I was really, really comfortable with James and Joaquin."

Oh, I BET you were very comfortable, since drinking screwdrivers all day would relax a bullheaded yak.

Here’s another nugget of wisdom from our Eva:

Eva also joked that working with Joaquin was like working with a puppy.

She said: "It’s kind of like working with a puppy dog or a two-year-old.

When you have its attention, it’s really cute, but otherwise…

But, seriously, he is one of the greatest actors of his generation."

This, my loverlies, is a prime example of what is commonly known as a "backhanded compliment", currently practiced by mothers all over the world.

Example:

"I could see your pretty face better if you lost 20 pounds, dear!"

or

"I’m so glad you have the courage to wear something like that - really shows that you’re not afraid to tell the world you don’t care what you look like."

Yes.

Well.

Now that we’re all cringing with mother-inflicted guilt, just think of what poor Joaquin must be feeling, compared to a frikking PUPPY.

Don’t worry, I’ll comfort the poor lad.
