About Eva Mendes

Born in Miami, Florida to Cuban parents, Mendes was raised by her mother in Los Angeles after her parents divorced. She studied marketing at California State Northridge University, and later decided to switch her focus towards acting. Mendes began studying under the respected acting coach Ivana Chubbuck, who is in no small part responsible for advancing the acting skills of Hollywood greats, such as Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron.

American actress, model and fashion designer Eva Mendes has an estimated net worth of $15 million dollars, as of 2023. While Mendes is no longer an actress, she has continued her career working in fashion design.

In the beginning of her career, Mendes was cast in guest roles on television shows like E.R. as well as in the occasional soap opera. She also appeared in music videos, including in Will Smith’s “Miami”. She was also cast in small roles in B-level horror movie sequels, appearing in her first movie the direct-to-video Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror as well as Urban Legends: The Final Cut.

Then, she began to gain traction after appearing as Denzel Washington’s girlfriend, Sara, in the gritty police drama Training Day. While it was Washington who of course took the sheer majority of the limelight, winning an Oscar for his lead role, Mendes was also remembered, and not just because of her brief nude scene, either. The harrowing performances were all heralded, including Ethan Hawke’s and Training Day remains one of the greatest crime-thrillers of all time.

Next, she appeared in action movies like 2 Fast 2 Furious and Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Films that used the rising starlet’s presence to soften their testosterone-heavy cast. Mendes then worked alongside Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear in Stuck On You and, possibly most important to her career, she was cast in the female lead in the romantic comedy Hitch.

In 2007, Mendes appeared as the role of Roxanne Simpson opposite motorcyclist-gone-flaming skeleton demon hunter Nicolas Cage in Ghost Rider. Finding it difficult to compete for roles, Mendes lent on her beauty and joined an elite list of celebrities, including Halle Barry and Nicole Kidman, as a model and international spokesperson for Revlon Cosmetics.

In 2009, she reunited with Cage in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. A film that earned less than half of its budget but was a surprising critical success. Still, it was not enough to get Mendes into the drivers seat of her career, and she continued to model, this time notably for Calvin Klein.

In 2011, Mendes was cast in the role as Romina in The Place Beyond the Pines. Working alongside Canadian heartthrob, Ryan Gosling, in the movie, their romance ventured into real life. The couple became partners that same year and Mendes has said that “I got tired of fighting for the good roles,” and over the next few years began to stop auditioning for parts, rather investing her efforts into fashion design and business.

Mendes’ Total Net Worth

Eva Mendes’ acting career was short lived and many were shocked by her early departure from Hollywood. It seems like she had what was needed to be a big star however, in the end, after marrying one of the biggest stars in the business, she settled down as a mother and became a fashion designer. She is also the creative director of CIRCA Beauty, a makeup line sold at Walgreens. In total, Eva Mendes has earned estimated total career income of $23 million dollars.

Of that amount, $2-3 million is expected to have been paid in business related costs. The remainder, $20.5 million, will have been taxed at a rate of around 45% as Eva Mendes has been residing in the state of California and earned through some lower tax years in the 2000s. After tax, it is estimated that her career earnings are at around $11.27 million dollars, having paid $9.23 million dollars in taxes.

Eva Mendes partnered with Ryan Gosling in 2011 and they remain together. They have two children together, Esmeralda Amada and Amada Lee Gosling. In her personal life, Eva has likely spent $1-3 million dollars of her career earnings but also probably possesses assets valued at around $850,000, not including investment assets. In her investments, she may have earned investment returns of $3-4 million dollars. Therefore, it is estimated that Eva Mendes has a net worth of a rounded up $15 million dollars.


Eva Mendes, the amazingly beautiful model and actress of Cuban descent, retired early from Hollywood after partnering with Ryan Gosling and starting a family. While her foray into life as an actress was short lived, many are hoping to see a return of the beauty who brought us performances like Sara, in Training Day, Roxanne Simpson, in Ghost Rider, and Romina, in The Place Beyond the Pines.
