Actress Eva Mendes has vowed never to go under the knife, because she deems perfect looks "boring".

The 2 Fast 2 Furious star, who regularly features in the top 10 of lists of the world's most beautiful women, admits she has her insecurities, but would rather be imperfect than flawless.

She says: "If I was striving for perfection, I would have fixed my teeth and my big nose. But perfection is so boring.

"I think the greatest beauties in the world were imperfect. Audrey Hepburn was one of the world's most beautiful women but she did a movie called Funny Face for a reason.

"I work out but I do not allow the body image stuff to get to me. There is so much else in life to worry about. Why add to that? It certainly was not an issue during my upbringing.

"My mum is a very voluptuous woman." - Wenn
