Hollywood actress Eva Mendes is currently raising two daughters: 6-year-old Esmeralda and 4-year-old Amanda Lee. For a while, while the girls were very young, Eva decided to take a break from her career
It turns out that a 6-year pause can end very soon. Recently, the American edition published an interview with the actress, in which Eva subtly hinted that she was ready to return to her favorite work. Moreover, her husband and father of children Ryan Gosling is not against such a decision. The purpose of this interview was to promote a charitable organization that greatly helped her cousin in difficult moments of life.
“I feel that my ambitions have not disappeared anywhere, just at some point in my life they were redirected to my children. I look at women who can combine career and parenting and give them a standing ovation. But I can honestly admit that I am not one of them. Fortunately, I have a choice whether to work or not. And I think I was very lucky because I was given such a choice. I was infinitely happy that I was able to safely carry my children. But now they are six and four, and I already understand that my ambitions are returning to their place” - the actress admitted to the publication.
Mendes also decided to tell how she and her 39-year-old husband Ryan Gosling dealt with children under one roof around the clock at the time of self-isolation.
“When I remember this time, it seems to me that during that period, we invited very drunk and aggressive friends to our house for bed and breakfast” - Eva says with a smile and a laugh. “We both thought we got a job in a hotel where all the guests are very angry and bossy, the only thing they needed was for us to bring them food. When they went to bed, we had enough time to just get out and at that moment talk about how tired we were of them all day” - the actress admits.
Eva also noted that they, like all parents, reached nervous breakdowns and a bad mood. However, at such moments, they reminded each other that in fact everything is fine, and this is the best time for the whole family. All family members are together and completely safe.
Eva and Ryan met on the set 9 years ago. They immediately realized that they had fallen in love, so they did not postpone the wedding. However, they always try to keep their personal life, as well as their children, away from journalists and prying eyes. Mendes periodically posts joint photos on her Instagram page, but she always follows the comments on such publications very carefully. If the actress does not like something, then she immediately boldly and rudely replies to her subscribers.
