Shocker: Eva Mendes Wanted to Be a Nun

In Eva Mendes on January 8, 2008 at 9:10 am

As a child, Eva Mendes wanted to be a nun…you know those self-denying ladies, with huge crosses hanging around the necks and with the long robes (in varying colors as grey, black, and blue). But she opted for Cal State University and not the convent.   


So, what exactly made La Eva drop her rosary?

“My sister told me: ‘You know, Eva, nuns don’t get paid.’ And I said: ‘Forget it!’ I’ve always wanted a better life, financially.”

Looks like there’s still a little nun left in Eva. So her parents wouldn’t see the sex scenes she has with Joaquin Phoenix in the movie We Own the Night, she had them wait in the lobby at the movie’s premiere for a good 15 minutes.  [Source]
