Early life

Mendes was born in Miami, Florida to Cuban parents, and was raised in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale by her mother after her parents’ divorce;[1] Mendes has said that her mother (who was a stay-at-home mom until she became an accountant when Eva went to school) “suffered so much to make my life OK” during her early years.[1] Mendes was raised a Roman Catholic and aspired to be a nun.[2] She attended Hoover High School in Glendale and later attended California State University, Northridge to study marketing, but dropped out after wanting to begin an acting career. She studied acting under Ivana Chubbuck.[3]. Before Eva Mendes[4] got her big break, she sold ‘Hot Dog on a Stick’ at Glendale Galleria Mall in California. Growing up, Eva’s role model was Cindy Crawford.
