Eva Mendes can’t live without spice, according to femalefirst.co.uk. The Spirit actress enjoys a temperature-raising taste sensation and would take crushed red pepper and her boyfriend with her if she was ever stranded on a desert island, the website adds.

She said: “My five desert island staples would have to be my boyfriend George Augusto, our dog Hugo, an iPod, the Sunday New York Times newspaper and crushed red pepper.”

The 43-year-old actress has also revealed she wouldn’t change a thing about her physical appearance.

She told Britain’s The Times newspaper: “I love and accept my body completely. I know that is not an interesting answer, but I really wouldn’t change anything. I’ve worked too hard on accepting it all.”

But while Eva — the daughter of Cuban parents — isn’t hankering after other actress’ looks, she is envious of those who tackle more challenging roles, especially double Golden Globe winner Kate Winslet.

She said: “I would steal Kate Winslet’s roles. All her roles. Not only is she the most amazing actress in the entire world, she’s done nude scenes in a lot of her films which shows she’s just fearless.”
