While Park City, Utah, was flooded with celebs last week for the Sundance Film Festival, one of Hollywood's most beautiful women, Eva Mendes, was in the Beehive State for another reason. The 33-year-old has been in Utah for a few weeks getting clean.

A statement released by her rep says: “Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support.
