Name: Eva Mendes
Birth Date: March 5, 1978
Birth Place: Houston, Texas, USA
of four children, Eva Mendes was born in Houston,
Texas on March 5, 1978. Her parents are both
Cuban and contributed to an interesting childhood
that saw Eva move to Miami and then Los Angeles,
when she was still a young girl. Despite the
glitz and glamour of the Californian coast,
Mendes (or Mendez, as she is sometimes credited)
gravitated toward interior design and marketing,
Her very first experience came in music videos;
you can see her in the videos for "Hole
In My Soul" by Aerosmith and "Miami"
by Will Smith. She followed these up with a
few TV appearances, highlighted by roles in
Mortal Kombat: Conquest and ER, both in 1998.
She also hit the big screen (albeit, not for
too long) with a role in 1998's Children of
the Corn V: Fields of Terror.
Mendes kept at it in the comedy A Night at the
Roxbury, and then, after smaller projects, resurfaced
in 2000 with a role in Urban Legends: Final
Cut. It was there that she began to get labeled
as a tough, feisty and sexy vixen; this persona
was maintained in the action hit Exit Wounds
and especially in her most admired performance,
as Denzel Washington's wife in 2001's Training
This opportunity arrived in 2003. First, she
signed on to appear in one of the most anticipated
releases of summer 2003: 2 Fast 2 Furious. In
the sequel to the supercharged, souped-up car
flick of 2001, she has received the most exposure
of her short career. Mendes' star power is bound
to increase exponentially thanks to the film's
impressive box-office success.
If this wasn't enough, Mendes had three huge
hits in 2003. She bombarded audiences with appearances
in Desperado II: Once Upon a Time in Mexico
(starring Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek),
Out of Time (again with Denzel Washington) and
the Farrelly brothers' Stuck On You (starring
Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear). She is surely
movin' on up, and frankly, we couldn't be happier.
Eva Mendes is obsessed with reality TV and can't
miss an episode of rapper Flavor Flav's show
Flavor Of Love.
The Latina beauty's addiction to the programme
has only been fuelled by her role in the independent
film Live, a commentary on reality television
shows, which depicts how the genre has spiralled
into a massive worldwide success.
The Hollywood star admits she always rushes
home after being on set to catch the latest
installment of the VH1 series that sees unlucky
in love Flav - real name William Drayton - try
to find a soulmate.
Mendes tells the New York Daily News, "I
watch Flavor Of Love. I actually was addicted
to that, because when I was shooting, I would
come home really late and the only thing that
was on reruns on VH1 was that show.
"I even saw the follow up talk show. That
was pretty pathetic of me."
