Eva Mendes' Family Takes Over When They Visit Esmeralda

Eva Mendes' Family Takes Over When They Visit Esmeralda

Eva Mendes is up close and personal on the cover Glam Belleza Latina‘s Fall 2015 issue.

Here is what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On visits with her family: “When my mom and sisters visit, they take over the house. They take my baby! They start cleaning everything! They sound like a bunch of hyenas, yelling in Spanish, English, Spanglish. They sing [my daughter Esmeralda] all these Cuban nursery songs that I forgot my mom used to sing to me. They’re like a raucous crew…. It’s incredible. I really appreciate my family, now more than ever. I’m so happy that my little girl gets to grow up with this.”

On the rise of Latinas in Hollywood: “It’s a great time. I remember reading scripts when I started in the business, nearly 15 years ago, and [Latino roles] were either nonexistent or written as the maid or a drug dealer. We’re no longer just that. I’ll play any part that challenges me. What’s important is that all races have choices.”

On connecting with fans on Instagram: “That is 100 percent me. It actually breaks my heart when I can’t respond. I love connecting with women; it’s fun for me. I come from a huge family of women, and I’m super close to the girlfriends I’ve had since I was 12 years old. And as you can see, all my businesses are geared toward women…. I was in a New York & Company design meeting recently, and I was unsure about a print. I decided to ask for feedback on Instagram. One lady said, ‘It depends on how it falls on the body.’ So we looked at it and said, ‘You know what? She’s totally right, because if this leaf falls by the boob, it’s going to be weird.’”
