Eva Mendes (48) has no plans to get back into acting in the near future. Speaking to the industry magazine Variety, the actress said on the sidelines of an event, "I don't really miss it."
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 worked for me didn't feel like it was worth it." Shortly thereafter, Mendes - who has been dating Hollywood darling Gosling since 2011 - became a mother. The couple have two daughters, Esmeralda (7) and Amada (6). "Oh, that's what I'm supposed to do now," she thought at the time.
There are now 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."
