Eva Mendes is an American actress and model.

Since I begrudgingly started my Instagram account and my social media exposure/connection.

I like listening to their stories and their feedback.

Eva Mendes

I just love architecture, and I just love the idea of being someone who sees the world differently and doing everything you can do in order to actualize that dream. And really sticking to your guns when everyone else is telling you that you're crazy.

People in my inner circle of loved ones - we're tight and I've never misjudged someone as far as I know; I can feel someone's intentions, I know their intentions before they probably are honest enough with themselves to know it, so that's my strength.
