Eva Mendes was a student at Cal State Northridge with no particular show business aspirations, when she was "discovered" by a neighbor's talent agent. Within weeks she was in an Aerosmith video, and shortly after that she made her film debut in Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror with Ahmet Zappa and Fred Williamson. She worked her way into progressively larger roles in bit-by-bit more prestigious movies, including Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Stuck On You, and Hitch.
Between movies, she has written a children's book called Crazy Legs.
