(CBS) From Denzel Washington and Johnny Depp to Will Smith and Nicholas Cage, actress Eva Mendes has worked with some of the Hollywood’s hottest leading men.

Mendes is now co-starring in the “The Spirit,” a film based on a 1940s comic book series. She plays Sand Saref, a woman who has a special relationship with The Spirit.

“They are childhood sweethearts, explains Mendes. “This film is visually stunning. It comes from the creative, genius mind of Frank Miller. What’s really unbelievable with my character is I get to play not only a jewel thief, but a woman who’s been married 14 times and killed every last one of her husbands. I mean, ladies, is that not just — it’s a sick fantasy, but, still a fantasy. Somewhat of a fantasy.”

“Now she is quite a dame,” adds Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen. “[She’s] got the lashes.”

“She’s a dame. She’s a broad,” says Mendes. “We paid homage to the women back then, in the 1940s — the Rita Hayworths and Bette Davis‘ of the world, the Ava Gardners. I had a lot of fun paying homage to those women.”
