Eva Mendes Wants to Play a Disney Villain for Her Daughters


For Eva Mendes, there are a lot of things she won’t do such as doing anything too sexual. But hello there Disney! She is ready for you!

After six years, Eva Mendes is now geared up to make her come back on the big screen and it is something very specific and only she’d do for her daughters.

Mendes shared that acting is something that she will always love and now that she has children, she feels excited. The 45-year-old actress shared on Entertainment Tonight that there may be a lot of things that she wouldn’t do like most of the movies she has already done in the past. Now that she has children, a lot of things are off her list including violent and sexual roles. She continued that maybe all that’s left is acting for Disney where she says ‘Disney, I’m all yours’.

The proud mom shares her two daughters with Ryan Gosling namely Amada Lee, 3 years old and Esmeralda Amada, 5 years old.  However, the actress wouldn’t want to play another Disney princess as she is more of a villain type of girl than a princess. She told Entertainment Tonight that she’s more of an Ursula type, referring to Little Mermaid. She also added that she likes the villains of the Disney movies because they are fun.

Moreover, Mendes says that if it’s not a Disney movie she’ll be doing soon, she’s willing to team up with Will Smith for a sequel of Hitch. She added that it’s definitely time for Hitch 2 where it’d be in the world of all these dating apps and Hitch would be out of a job.


Over the weekend, while speaking with people, the fashion designer shares how much she loves watching her children forge their own identities. She added that they are their own kind of woman already and it’s a beautiful scene to witness. Mendes continues that she feels like it’s her job to get out of their way and just let them be what they want to be. According to the actress, in order to protect her children, she tries not to give her opinion too much on what they like and just let them be.
