Eva Mendes (born Eva de la Caridad Méndez, March 5, 1974 in Miami, Florida) is a Cuban-American actress and model best known for such movies as The Spirit, Stuck on You, and The Other Guys.

She has been with Canadian actor Ryan Gosling since 2011, and they have two daughters. In 2014, she announced her hiatus from acting, with her final film being released that year. She returned to acting later in 2021 with a minor TV role, and says she's planning new roles, though saying they won't be either violent or sexual anymore.


Tropes related to her works:

  • Ms. Fanservice: She even appears in a full frontal in her arguable breakout role (Training Day).
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse/Reluctant Fanservice Girl: She has commented many times on how she is kept from being taken seriously as an actress because of her attractive appearance. Yet, she has also mentioned how she's not afraid to turn up the sexuality if it's needed to secure a role.
