VIDEO: Up close in Spain with Irina Shayk

Dark hair, olive skin, fit body. And that's just her boyfriend. (You see what I did there?)

She may be hard to look away from, but Irina Shayk readily admits that success doesn't just come to you, or her, or anyone, as she did in this recent interview with DNAIndia.com. It takes hard work. And so does keeping the media off her back about her several-year long relationship with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, revealing only that, "he is a nice person and I would not be in a relationship with him for so long, otherwise." Fair enough.
