Ryan, 41, will appear in the film alongside Margot Robbie, and his long-time partner has embraced her sweetie’s movie makeover, which includes his eye-catching blonde hair.

She shares Amada, six, and Esmeralda, seven, with The Gray Man actor. 

During an interview in 2020, Eva explained: ‘I feel like, as far as my ambition, it didn’t go away, it just shifted onto the children.

‘I applaud and look up to those women who can do it all, but I’m not one of them – and, thankfully, I have a choice not to work and I realize how fortunate I am that it’s even a choice.

‘I’ve been so happy to be able to incubate with my babies, but now they are four and six, I’m starting to feel like my ambition is coming back.’

Eva was one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood at the height of her career. Her last film was 2014’s Lost River.

But in the early days, she was told she was ‘too ethnic’ by one casting director.

Eva, who was born in Miami, Florida, to Cuban parents, revealed, ‘There was a commercial casting director who’d let me audition for commercials and kept bringing me in for callback. One day, after a year of never booking a job, I said, ‘Okay, tell me what I need to change so I can get cast?’ ‘She said, “Honey, it’s just your look. You’re too ethnic, so you’re never going to be the face of any American product.”’

The determined actress has proven the casting director wrong.  She has helped creating the Eva Mendes collection for clothing store NY & Co. She is also the face of a new line of kitchen cleaning products for Skura style, releasing a new video earlier this week on Instagram. 

Whether she will return to acting is anyone’s guess. In a May interview on Today with Hoda and Jenna, the busy partner, mom and entrepreneur listed the things she doesn’t want to do on-screen, ‘I don’t want to do anything violent, I don’t want to do anything sexual, I don’t want to do like, you know… I’m like, what’s left?’
