Eva Says She's Not the Sharpest Tool in the Shed

Eva Says She's Not the Sharpest Tool in the Shed

Eva stopped by the LA Comic Book and Science Fiction convention this weekend to talk about her latest film Ghost Rider. You know those guys were probably just falling over in their chairs. She recently said that she gained weight to purposely make her boobs and her butt bigger for the role of Roxanne. The nice thing about Eva is she tells it exactly like it is. Here's some more highlights:

  • On her big addiction:
    “I had a Red Bull problem. I was up to seven a day. Red Bull wanted to send me a mini-fridge. I was like, “No!” It’s like giving a crack addict free crack.”
  • On gaining weight for Ghost Rider:
    “I don’t complain about gaining weight. It was actually fun. I love my body. I believe in cherishing myself as a woman. But I don’t’ want to come off like I’m this totally in-control person, because I’m definitely not.”
  • On her intelligence:
    “I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. I like a man to be smarter than me so I can learn from him. I like a superintellectual with an edge. Having an edge means not always abiding by the rules. I like a little danger. A little mischief.”

So she's not going to be the spokeswoman for feminism anytime soon but at least she's honest (and funny)! It's refreshing these days, that's for sure. For more pics of her with director Mark Steven Johnson just

That was funny. I like her.
Poor Eva :( 1st of all, who can make the fat they gain go to their boobs and butt and not their tummy? & Just because you arent the sharpest tool doesnt mean you have to go around advertising it! IMO, eva and the NBA player is a disaster waiting to happen. I hope not, but if the marriage works, I would be amazed! ~Let's Go~

Dumb isn't sexy I don't know why she said that in the first place. I guess she really is dull.

since when has being dumb been a positive trait? if u're gonna sell urself Eva, atleast be nice about urself. i agree with everyone else who says that she shouldn't play the dumb role, it's not a good look on her!

I like Eva, I think she's pretty funny and just being herself. She really isn't the "sharpest tool in the shed," I'm not trying to be mean also I don't think she's just "playing that card." Anyone ever see her, Kevin James and Will Smith on Oprah when promoting Hitch? The girl didn't even know how many days were in a year... lol.

Although the dumb roll works I wish people would stop using it. There nothing more dumb than playing dumb (also, it's like fake modesty)
