Eva Longoria

  1. Violante  Placido, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, 2010  Eva Mendes passed on the very idea of reprising her Roxanne from the first film and, therefore, The Girl became a Nadya,  snatched from Eva by  the daughter of Italian stars, Michele Placido and Simonetta Stefanelli – best remembered as Al Pacino’s  blow- up wife in The Godfather.
  2. Halle Berry, John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum, 2018.    Still in need of a  haircut and a real beard, Wick III kicks off  when his his dog is klilled (“It wasn’t just a puppy”) and the Latin title explodes: “If you want peace, prepare for war.” Not much much room then for a girl alongside Keanu Reeves.  Shortlisted for Sofia were Longoria, Jennifer Beals, Marion Cotilliard, Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek, Uma Thurman, Marisa Tomei. Halle had the edge. She’d worked with James Bond… played Catwoman… and won an Oscar!
