The thought of being a Hollywood movie star probably has never crossed the mind of Eva Mendes before. What she had intended to do was to concentrate on her study in marketing at California State University in Northridge, yet fate has directed her to undergo a totally different path. Looking back on her early life, she was born on March 5, 1974 in Miami, Florida. Her Cuban parents then took her along with her three siblings to settle in Los Angeles. She spent most of her youth and spirited life there, studying at Herbert Hoover High School in Glendale until her graduation in 1992. It was when she attended the university that things began to change gradually. A talent agent apparently noticed her picture while browsing the portfolio of a photographer who appeared to be her neighbor. Getting interested, the agent persuaded her to pursue a career in the entertainment field.
