Eva Mendes celebrates her 41st birthday Thursday, and most probably in the company of her husband Ryan Gosling and their baby girl Esmeralda.
The Latina actress is big on keeping a low profile and now more than ever to protect her daughter from the paps. Therefore, we may never know how Mendes will party it up on her big day.
What we do know, is that this Cuban-American star has played her cards right, nabbing one of the hottest studs in Hollywood as her man and baby daddy.
She’s also got great flicks to showcase in her filmography and a new clothing line with New York & Company.
It’s a no brainer that Eva is on top of the world, and in honor of her 41st cumpleaños (which happens to also land on a Throwback Thursday), we take it back to some of the times she looked more like the girl-next-door while still being incredibly sexy.
It’s all in good spirit, Evita. We wish you Happy Birthday!
1) The time she looked like a fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Rodriguez.
2) The time she looked like an 18-year-old on their first day of an internship.
3) The time she looked like mom when she was 18-years-old.
4) The time she looked like a Soccer Mom picking up their kid from a match.
5) And the time when she looked like that chismosa next door neighbor.
6) How about the time she looked like someone from Greek Mythology?
7) And the time she looked like an innocent, Latina version of Britney Spears.
8) The time she looked like a contestant of VH1’s “Rock of Love.”
9) And the time she looked like this. No comments.
