Enough of Hollywood: Eva Mendes didn't want to fight anymore

Eva Mendes fans have been missing out on movies starring the actress for a while now as she has left Hollywood. In an interview, the 48-year-old now explains the reason for this, and it has something to do with her origin.

Eva Mendes has no plans to get back into acting anytime soon. Speaking to industry magazine Variety, the actress said on the sidelines of an event, "I don't really miss it."

Mendes began her film career in the 1990s, and in the years that followed she appeared in films such as "2 Fast 2 Furious" or "Hitch - The Date Doctor". Her last film to date, Lost River, the directorial debut of her partner Ryan Gosling, was released in 2014. Almost a decade later, she now says: "It was tiring to have to fight for the good parts."

She briefly flirted with the idea of ​​becoming a producer herself: "There was just a point where I was like, 'I'm going to create my own opportunities and be a producer and create my own material,' but it took off didn't feel like it was worth it to me."

Shortly thereafter, Mendes, who has been dating Hollywood darling Gosling since 2011, became a mother for the first time at 40. "Oh, that's what I'm supposed to do now," she thought at the time. She actually never wanted children, as she revealed on an Australian radio show in 2020. "I never wanted to have a baby until I fell in love with Ryan," she said there. The couple now has two daughters, seven-year-old Esmeralda and one year younger, Amanda.

Today there are more opportunities for Latina actresses, Mendes explains. "But when I left ten years ago, I wasn't offered roles that weren't specifically Latina." However, a comeback is not completely out of the question either: "It's exciting that things are different now, so who knows what I'll do in the future. But for the moment I'm staying at home with my children."
