Eva Mendes

Eva Mendes was born in Miami in 1974. She is of Cuban descent. Her parents divorced when she was still a kid, and thus she along with her mother and two sisters and a brother moved to Los Angeles. Eva considers herself to be a devout Catholic, although some of the dogmas (like marriage) are not for her, as she claims. She even considered becoming a nun, and never an actress.

After school she entered California State University, where she studied marketing. She ended up not graduating from it, as she was persuaded by an agent to try acting. Her career started with commercials and music videos for Will Smith, Pet Shop Boys and Aerosmith. She was then noticed and her major breakthrough was in the film that won an Oscar for Mr. Denzel Washington “Training Day.” She was then ushered into the big screen business with both leading and supporting roles in such films as Stuck on You, Hitch, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Ghost Rider, Bad Lieutenant, We Own the Night, becoming one of the most sought-after actresses in the business.

In 2008 she launches her line of bedding, which can be purchased in the Macy’s network.

Eva Mendes Quotes
Eva: It's fun to be a woman. It's fun to flirt and wear makeup and have boobs.

Eva: The celebrity world can be so ugly. Everyone seems to have slept with everyone else and it's some sort of strange weird cycle. I don't want to get into that.

Eva: I don't go to premieres. I attend film openings I'm in, and that's about it. Fame and celebrity doesn't matter to me. The longevity of my career does.

Eva: I feel I'll take on the responsibility of showing the world a whole different kind of Latin woman.
