She has not been seen on the big screen since appearing in her partner Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut in 2014.
But Eva Mendes sounded like she might be ready to return to acting in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald published on Saturday.
When asked about her priorities, the 46-year-old actress said her ‘ambition’ to act was starting to come back.

“I want, as far as my ambition is, that it did not disappear, it just changed for the children,” Eva explained.
‘I applaud and look up to the women who can do it all, but I’m not one of them – and luckily I have a choice not to work and I’m aware of how lucky I am that it even is a choice.
‘I’ve been so happy to be able to incubate with my babies, but now that they’s four and six, I’m starting to feel like my ambition is coming back,’ she said.
Renewed ambition: ‘I’ve been so happy to be able to incubate with my babies, but now that they’s four and six, I’m starting to feel like my ambition is coming back,’ she said.
She described having daughters Esmeralda at six and Amada at four with Ryan as ‘running a kind of bed-and-breakfast with very drunk and aggressive guests’
The devoted couple began their relationship in 2011 after they met on stage of the crime drama The Place Beyond The Pines, which also starred in Bradley Cooper.
Elsewhere in the interview, she described the surreal scene of raising two young children.
‘Sometimes it feels like we’re running a kind of bed-and-breakfast with very drunk and aggressive guests,’ she said, laughing.
‘We really want to work in a hotel and the guests are angry and daring and demand food brought to them. And when they go to bed, we’re back to just cleaning up and talking about how they treated us that day! ‘
Honestly: Eva spoke to the publication after being named Ambassador for McDonalds Australia’s McHappy Day, even though she will not be attending in November due to the pandemic; shown in February
Eva spoke with the publication after being named Ambassador for McDonald’s Australia’s McHappy Day, a position previously held by Katie Holmes, Naomi Watts and Benji and Joel Madden, among other celebrities.
Although the Hitch actress does not travel to Australia due to the global pandemic, she had plenty of praise for Ronald McDonald House, who had played an important role in the lives of her family members.
‘About five years ago, my cousin Linda’s 18-month-old son, Andrew, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and it was one of the most frightening, most challenging times of her life,’ she recalled.
‘When she was going to take Andrew to New York for treatment, I asked her to let us help. I said, “Do you need an apartment next to the hospital? We do everything for you, just ask.” That was when she told me about RMHC and what an incredible support system it was for her and others in the same position.
‘She loved it even more when her second son was born and she had to return to New York because they had activities for the siblings and really helped with the little things no one thinks of in such an unthinkable situation,’ she added.

‘No I did not. This picture was taken 15 years ago. Have not seen a beach this year. Have not been on the run this year. ‘
After a commenter said she needed to ‘tell Ryan to get you out more’, she replied: ‘no thank you, I’m good. Be at home with my husband rather than anywhere else in the world. ‘
