Eva Mendes is on the cover of the March issue of Marie Claire, in which she dishes on working with her beau, Ryan Gosling, on their new film, "The Place Beyond the Pines." Mendes gushed, "He's your dream co-star. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film."

Mendes, 37, also talked about body image, saying, "It doesn't matter what you have or what you look like. It's something everyone has to work at. I realize I have contributed to a certain happy, healthy, empowered image, but that's not all of me."

She continued, "I feel it's important to let women know that I have similar struggles. What I tell girls is what they don't like about themselves now, they will probably end up loving as an adult, because that's what happened to me. When I am complimented on things that I didn't like when I was 13, like my overbite and my mole, that's when you realize that your imperfections are why people love you."

The March issue of Marie Claire hits newsstands on February 14.
