Eva Mendes was raised in Glendale, a Los Angeles suburb, and attended Herbert Hoover High School. She had no interest in acting when she was younger, but when she was attending California State University Northridge as a marketing major, a friend's talent agent discovered her picture and Mendes dropped out to pursue performing. She was soon rewarded with a successful modeling and acting career, and today she is a spokesmodel for innumerable brands, a recorded singer, and a movie star.
