Eva Mendes is quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s most bankable young actresses thanks to her outstanding performances in Training Day, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Hitch, Ghost Rider, We Own the Night, Cleaner, and her latest, Werner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. “I think about the bigger picture,” she says when asked about selecting her roles. “I think about it a lot, maybe too much sometimes. I don't want to pigeonhole myself.” Her strategy seems to be working so far, as Eva Mendes has shown herself to be equally at ease starring in broad comedies as she is in harrowing dramas.
