Eva Mendes

Born March 5, 1974

Eva Mendes really can do it all. She is an amazing actress, a business person, and a mom. She is also devastatingly funny.

Noteworthy

  • Hitch – Mendes is the perfect leading lady and counterpart to Will Smith in Hitch. She is so damn funny in this movie.
  • Stuck On You – Mendes adds just the right touch to this movie. A weird flick needs strong actors and she filled that nicely.
  • Ghost Rider – LOved her as the leading female role in Ghostrider. Nicholas Cage needed someone to be the grounding force and Mendes kept up with Cage scene for scene.
  • Beauty and Fashion Lines – She designs a fashion line for New York and Company and she also designs a line of beauty products for her company CIRCA Beauty.

I’m a modern woman in the sense of I take care of myself, I’m fiercely independent, and I’m really ambitious. Yet I have these old-school thoughts in my mind.
