"Hercules": Irina Shayk Revealed

Sneak Peek revealing new images of Russian model/actress Irina Shayk (aka 'Megara' in director Brett Ratner's 2014 feature "Hercules") in a fashion spread for "Telegraph" (UK) magazine:

Shayk was discovered at the age of 20, and since 2007 has starred in every annual swimsuit edition of "Sports Illustrated" plus campaigns for Armani Exchange and Givenchy.

"I don't believe in plastic surgery," said Shayk. "I believe women have to love their bodies, and that it's all about confidence. When I do shoots, I say to myself, I love my body and I'm not afraid to show it. I hope every woman will feel special and be in love with her body, whatever her size.

"To get into lingerie or a swimsuit for a shoot you have to feel your best, and of course you have to train...You have to find something that works for your body. I get bored very easily, so I'm always trying to find something different.

"The thing you realize as a public person is that press attention is part of your job. Of course, sometimes you want to hide and don't want the attention, but it doesn't matter what people are saying. My friends and family know who I am. I'm not mad at anybody; they're writing something because it's their job. I'm just doing my job..."
