Quotes From Eva:
"I love being a woman. I love the sexiness we get to exude. But the best thing about being a woman is the power we have over men."
"It would be nice to go out on a date with Brad Pitt but I'm not going to cry about it. There are plenty of other guys out there."
"I'm definitely no Bridget Jones. I don't believe in that whole 'oh there are no decent men out there' thing. Get real girls- there are loads of gorgeous guys on every street corner"
"I'm a late bloomer, my looks came pretty late and success happened at the age of 30. But I'm pleased about things not coming to me immediately because it makes you appreciate it when you finally get it"
