Eva Mendes Opens Up About the Body ‘Insecurities’ She Experienced as a Young Actress
Eva Mendes is encouraging people to appreciate how they look at every stage of their lives — after struggling to accept that herself when she was younger.
As a 26-year-old early in her acting career, Mendes, now 47, said that she used to dislike her face and criticize her looks.
"Just came across this picture from a movie that was almost 20 years ago," she wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo from when she was in the 2003 movie Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
"I remember seeing this photo back then and thinking my face looked "weird" and that my bone structure was odd ...yadda yadda ...you know all those insecurities that a 26 year old can have," the mom of two continued.
