Eva Mendes used to be a waitress. But these days she's busy being a mother to Ryan Gosling's children. The two really aren't the definition of a power couple. Ryan is busy with reboots like Bladerunner and losing Oscars to the black version of Brokeback Mountain. Eva Mendes, on the other hand, decided opening up about how hard it is to work and care for children at the same time. I'm pretty sure every household that has kids goes through the same situation. But since her face has been seen on the big screen her comments on the issue are a revelation. Last time I checked it was only Ryan Gosling starring in La La Land. Now it seems Eva Mendes is there too with the revamped plot focusing on her nonexistent hectic work schedule.
Mendes told E! News that she didn't realize how guilty she would feel splitting her time between work and raising her and Ryan Gosling's two beautiful daughters: "Oh my God, nobody warns you about the guilt that you feel when you do work!" The actress admitted that she doesn't know how she balances it all, saying, "I don't know how I find balance, because I think it is like a day to day kind of struggle, you know?" Between creating her collection for New York & Co., taking care of herself and raising her two girls Esmeralda, 3, and Amada, 1, she definitely has her hands full.
I feel so bad for celebrity moms like Mendes. Having millions of dollars to actually pay for daycare just to make more money in one sitting than most people will ever see in their lifetime. Yep. So much guilt to go around. Save some for Eva. The film that propelled you to superstar status was from 2005 when Will Smith was relevant and everyone could easily identify the name of that fat guy from King Of Queens. So where exactly is this cinematic blockbuster excellence that's keeping you away from your kids in 2017? Or was this just a cry for attention?
