AceShowbiz - Eva Mendes likes to "set an example" for her daughters with the acting roles she takes on.
The 45-year-old actress hasn't been seen in anything since she appeared in her partner Ryan Gosling's movie "Lost River" back in 2014. Since becoming a mother, her absence from the screen hasn't gone unnoticed by fans, one of whom took to Instagram to question the multi-talented star on when she will next be seen in a film.
"When can we the fans going to see u in some new movies @evamendes," the fan wrote, to which Eva replied, "hi! When there's something worthwhile to be apart of."
"As a mother now, there are many roles I won't do," she continued. "There are many subject matters that I don't want to be involved with, so it limits my choices and I'm fine with that. I have to set an example for my girls now. But no worry, I got some side hustles. Ha! Thanks for asking. All the best for 2020."
Eva shares two daughters - Esmeralda, five, and Amada, three - with Ryan.
While she hasn't been seen acting in recent years, Eva has turned her hand to designing collections for New York & Company - all of which have proved to be incredibly successful.
