The shade is real today, from Teyana and Rihanna to Solange throwing that subliminal shade at Miley. To now Eva Mendes who played in Hitch with Will Smith and Training Day with Denzel Washington had some very harsh words in regards to fellow Latina Jennifer Lopez. She was pissed that someone compared her to JLO and she clapped back by saying please don’t compare to her.
Then Eva went on to say, “I would like to think I will have a more serious career than J.Lo. We may both be of Latin origin but that’s where the comparisons stop. She manages her career like the head of a big corporation, whereas the only thing I care about is becoming the best actress possible.” I don’t think Jennifer Lopez can act (outside of romantic comedies), but, I will say….You know you’re doing something right when people feel the need to comment on you. Eva could’ve skipped right over this (if she was directly asked about J. Lo) and kept it about herself, but instead, she chose to shade Jennifer. Which was really uncalled for… By the way Jennifer has built an empire outside of acting, so I suggest Eva truly take heed.
