Miami - Beautiful model-turned actress Eva Mendes is a star on the rise and her profile will certainly be heightened as the female lead opposite heartthrob Paul Walker in The Fast and the Furious 2.
Born in Miami, the youngest of four children, Eva and her family would later move to Los Angeles. She started her acting career taking a role in her first feature film, 1998s Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror, as a summer job while she was attending college at Cal State Northridge.
She was discovered because her neighbor, a photographer, had her photo in his portfolio and it caught the eye of an agent. Before her first acting role Eva was uncertain about her future. However, with her first feature under her belt she decided to drop out of college and pursued acting full-time.
Soon after Mendes received small roles in commercials, music videos (Aerosmith''s Hole in My Sole video & Will Smith''s Miami video), and television (ER). Eva has also been cast in several feature films over the years such as Urban Legends: Final Cut, Training Day, All About the Benjamins and will be seen in the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film Once Upon a Time in Mexico and Out of Time and has starred in The Fast and the Furious 2.

What do your dreams mean? No two dreams are ever exactly the same. You may dream of the same thing, but each repeated dream is unique in its own way. The dream state is a place for us to relax and a place for us to receive messages. It is also a state of being where the real self, known as the subconscious, is able to reveal and relate to the conscious mind.
In ancient times, dreams were used as a method of focusing on present and future situations.
