The last film Eva Mendes shot was ‘Lost River’ back in 2014. Curiously, the same year of her partner and father of her two children Ryan Gosling’s debut as a director in that movie. Since then, the actress of Cuban descent, but born in Miami, has stayed away from the Hollywood spotlight and does not seem to intend to return to the front line of the red carpets.
Eva Mendes was a recognized, sought-after actress in Hollywood. What happened for her to make the decision to pause her career? "Ryan Gosling passed," the actress confessed with a laugh, in an interview with Women's Health.
But it was in 2011, on the set of 'The Place Beyond the Pines', where the actress fell in love with her shooting partner, Ryan Gosling. Of course, Eva Mendes herself confessed that they had met years before, without specifying when or under what circumstances. She also revealed she never thought of having children before meeting her husband.
After three years of relationship, in September 2014 Esmeralda Amada Gosling was born, and in April 2016, Amada Lee Gosling would arrive. Even before her second daughter was born, Eva Mendes was clear about what she wanted. There you have it, she decided to change her focus and dedicate herself only to her family and to be the best mom.
