Eva Mendes has been been on a nearly 10-year break from Hollywood, She appeared on “The View” recently and discussed what it would take for her to work in front of a camera again.
“I have a short list of what I will do,” the 48-year-old said. “Like before kids, I kind of was up for anything, I mean, if it was a fun project. But now I won’t do violence, I don’t want to do sexuality, the list is short.”
Eva has two daughters with fellow actor Ryan Gosling, they have been a couple since 2011. Eva’s last acting role was in 2014’s “The Lost River,” which was written, co-produced and directed by her partner Ryan Gosling.
When Mendes was asked if she would consider taking on “a special project” that met her criteria, she replied, “I hope so. It has to be nice and clean.”
In an interview on the view, co-host Whoopi Goldberg suggested, “stuff like Disney does.” The “Hitch” star exclaimed, “Disney! Perfect.”
Earlier this month, Mendes opened up on “Today with Hoda & Jenna” about her most important role-being a mom.
Regarding settling down Mendes said; “Consciously I did want to wait until I was a bit older,” Mendes continued. “I just didn’t feel, really it wasn’t until I met Ryan and fell in love. But also as a woman, I just wasn’t ready. It’s such a personal choice for a woman, obviously.
Then you run the risk of… you’re always running a risk. When I was pregnant there was always something to worry about. But thankfully I had really healthy pregnancies and I was happy I waited.”
