Eva Mendes - who can currently be seen in new movie 'The Spirit' - is grateful she was an adult before becoming famous as an actress
Eva Mendes is grateful she was an adult before becoming famous as an actress.
The 34-year-old beauty - whose breakthrough role came in 2003's '2 Fast 2 Furious' when she was 28 - thinks a lot of actresses achieve fame at too young an age and can't handle it.
She said: "There are a lot of lost little souls in Hollywood - a lot of young women who have so much, who come into fame and fortune when they are young, and it's very difficult to handle that.
"I just thank my lucky stars for being an adult before being an actress."
Eva - who stars alongside Scarlett Johansson and Jaime King in new movie 'The Spirit' - also revealed she hates being quizzed about alleged feuds with her female co-stars.
She added: "It's a very sexist way of thinking. Nobody ever asks that when men work together in an ensemble cast. I have been in the business 10 years and I've never had a negative situation with another actress - ever!"
