Eva Mendes is opening up about her life out of the spotlight and how she is ready to finally return to the acting world now that her kids are growing up.
The 46-year-old actress said in an interview with Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa that she didn’t want to have kids until she fell in love with her partner Ryan Gosling.
“I am [ready to go back to work], now that they getting a bit older but I really feel like, I never want to send the wrong message to young women out there, it’s not an either/or situation,” Eva said.
She added, “I was lucky enough to work my bum off for 20 years and then, I never wanted babies before until I fell in love with Ryan, and it kind of worked out to where I was 40 and having my first baby, I think I was 42 for the second one so it worked out in that way that I had a career and that then I change my focus to my family. So now I’m thinking of definitely going back, I feel like it’s time. I’m telling you guys, the list is getting shorter and shorter of stuff that I do, I don’t want to do anything violent, nothing risque. I think the only thing that’s left is Disney!”
Eva also talked about Ryan‘s 40th birthday being less than a month away.
“You know I haven’t really given it to much thought,” she said about present ideas. “It’s been such a year that you know I think it was just like you know, we’re not going to have a party. It’s not the time for it. Honestly it’s just going to be us.”
