Eva Mendes won’t do movies with violence or sexuality after becoming a mom: ‘The list is short’

Eva Mendes has very strict standards for acting projects these days, which is why she hasn't appeared on the big screen in eight years. The difference, since she starred in flicks such as The Other Guys, Hitch and 2 Fast 2 Furious, is the presence of the two daughters she shares with Ryan Gosling: Esmeralda, 7, and 6-year-old Amada. "I have such a short list of what I will do [now]," Mendes said Tuesday on The View, explaining that she was much more open about the roles she would take before becoming a mom. "I mean, if it was a fun project [I'd do it]. But now I won't do violence, I don't want to do sexuality, the list is short."
