Eva Mendes – Pretty Woman of Latin America

Saturday, 08 May 2010

Eva MendesEva Mendes is a miracle for men as any other beautiful woman. The place of birth of one of the charming Hollywood actresses is shrouded in mystery. By some sources, Eva was born in Miami, the biggest city in Florida, while by other sources she is the native to Huston, the largest city of Texas, the typical American state among the others. The information on the date of birth of Eva and her parents is clear and has no difference in mass media: she was born on March 5, 1974 to the family of Cuban immigrants. Her father traded in automobiles and her mother was a teacher for pre-school department.

Wherever she was born, the fate played what it supposed to do. Her parents divorced and her mother was left alone with four kids to bring up and care. Eva was the youngest child in the family. Yet, the mother had to move to California, Los-Angeles looking for better life and challenges.

It seems as if natives to Los-Angeles relate to Hollywood to some regard or dream on arriving to Hollywood from the early childhood, get famous and earn the big money. Though, it is a myth. Thus, Eva Mendes had never dreamt of any Hollywood cinema achievements and triumph. She completed the elementary school named after  Herbert Hoover and then she became the student to the California State Northridge University.

Attending the University, Eva Mendes began taking acting class’s full time. And here the sources give the different information. They say that Eva was trained at the interior design courses but the others confirm that she was prepared to be a marketing analyst. It does not matter, though, since she became neither a designer not a marketing analyst.

And here again Mr. Fate get intervened in her biography, as well as with other people from show business an acquaintance of Eva once asked her to help with portfolio making as a model. Mendes was glad to help her friend and she forgot it after everything was done. In the soonest time her pictures drew attention of the Hollywood agent seeking for young actors. He appreciated Eva’s beauty and advised that she tried herself as an actress since she was found very beautiful. She refused but on the second though Eva left her studies and get involved in cinema.

Eva did not put high hopes just on her beauty and she made her mind to take some acting classes but she had to earn some money to pay for her classes and other expenditures she would have definitely. She featured in commercials and music videos and very soon Eva Mendes appeared in some episodes of the series Emergency Room and Mortal Kombat: Conquest. She first featured in cameo in the horror movie Children of the Corn V dated 1998.

Though, Eva did not get the fame and love of people after the movie was on and she featured in some more movies less known to the wide public. There was breakthrough in Eva’s life in the year 2001. The police drama Training Day features appearances by Eva Mendes as well as Scott Glenn and Tom Berenger. The box office hit tells about the criminal society in Los Angeles was warmly welcomed by the population and cinematography critics which is too rare.

This is obvious that the fascinating duo actors as Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawk (the former won his Oscar for the main male character while the latter was nominated for Oscar as the best «secondary male character». Nevertheless, Eva Mendes who featured opposite to Oscar-winner Denzel Washington was mentioned by the critics and considered as worth discussing. Moreover, Eva appeared absolutely naked in one of the episodes and this only increases the level of her fame for the wide public.

The year 2003 turned to be the fruitful and rich in events for Eva and she was officially acknowledged as the new star of Hollywood blockbusters. Within the year she featured in three movies good enough to be discussed by the spectators and critics. First, she starred in 2 Fast 2 Furious in 2003 as the second installment of the Fast and the Furious series following 2001's the Fast and the Furious. Second, she played a beautiful and adventurous woman in the movie Once Upon a Time in Mexico which is the final film in the «Mariachi Trilogy» about the mysterious guitar player wearing guns featured by Antonio Banderas. Third, she was the one to create the most romantic character in the sentimental comedy Stuck On You, a 2003 comedy film directed starring Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear as twins. Then Eva began dating off screen as well as on screen with Damon.

Thus, every even and every her step was obvious to bring to a real fame after Eva would be announced as the globally recognized star. And soon the project was offered to her when in 2005 she starred in the record-breaking romantic comedy Hitch playing Will Smith’s girlfriend and love interest. By the way, Eva Mendes featured in the video of Will Smith in the early step of her career. And when the film was on Eva woke up really famous.

The other project that she worked on is “Ghost Rider” with Nicolas Cage directed by Mark Steven Johnson and is said to be a huge hit. 

She was offered to be the image for one of the famous cosmetic companies, Revlon and as well as for the brand Calvin Klein.

As a matter of fact, her activity as an actress a little bit suspended after her success in 20005. Though, Eva has been popping up in lots of movies and her filmography includes such movies as Trust The Man, Night Lord, Ghost Rider and The Spirit. Neither of these projects became the real blockbuster nor was Eva Mendes fascinating and exclusively brilliant to strike the mind of people.

And this may be the cause of personal problems the actress experiences now and in early 2008 Eva addressed to the medical clinic specialized in rendering services for Hollywood celebrities who suffer from drug-addiction.

Eva completed the treatment course and announced just that she got addicted to some herbal medications in view of her depressive status and she was in need of qualified help.

Well, we hope that life will turn its best side to Eva soon. Yet, in the nearest future we will envoy the film version of the novel by the famous Spanish writer Arturo Pérez-Reverte «La Reina del Sur». And Eva is welcome to see all her talent and dramatic skills as this difficult character.

Achieving goals is something Eva Mendes is good at.  She has achieved many things others dream of achieving.  Eva has given her word to accomplish more in her life because she will not be satisfied until she wins an Oscar.
