The difficulty in picking a fabulous babe from a small state (Delaware) was enormous.
The difficulty in picking a fabulous babe from Florida? Not so much. Thank you Sunshine State. Thank you for giving us the lovely and talented Eva Mendes! An uber-hottie, I loved Eva in Once Upon a Time in Mexico and Training Day.
Need a little background?
This from Wikipedia:
Mendes was born in Miami, to Cuban-American parents and was raised in Los Angeles by her mother after her parents’ divorce; Mendes has said that her mother “suffered so much to make my life OK” during her early years. Her father was a car salesman and her mother, also named Eva, is now an elementary school principal. She is the youngest of four children (she has two sisters and a brother). She was raised Roman Catholic and aspired to be a nun.
A nun? What a terrible waste that would have been!
