Eva Mendes’ nipple too hot for TV
An advertisement featuring Hollywood star Eva Mendes rolling around on a bed naked has been banned from screening on TV in America.
The ad, for Calvin Klein’s new fragrance Secret Obsession, was banned because Mendez flashes her nipple in one scene.
“Between love and madness lies obsession,” Mendes, 34, says in the ad. “Love … madness. It’s my secret.”
An edited version is screening on cable TV in America.
The ban has seen the ad become a hit on the internet, with more than 360,000 views on YouTube in just two days.
Calvin Klein president Tom Murry said the ban was not a suprise.
“We believe the commercial is exceptional and hits the mark for Secret Obsession,” Murry told the New York Daily News.
“We are anticipating a very successful global launch.”
Mendes, who starred in We Own the Night, recently completed a stint in rehab. She has also posed nearly nude for Vanity Fair magazine.
