Eva Mendes

  1. Anne Hathaway, The Princess Diaries, 2001.      Among 22 youngstars (Jessica Alba to Reese Witherspoon) rejecting the awkward San Francisco teenager being groomed (by Julie Andrews!) to inherit the Genovia throne - after director Garry Marshall’s (rather surprising) first choice of Juliette Lewis quit. And so, Hathaway made her first movie.
  2. Catherine Bell, Bruce Almighty, 2002.     The magnificent Mendes had won the gig but had to pass Susan Ortega to Bell in the Jim Carrey comedy. Too many other films to fry... Almost as busy as her intended co-star Jennifer Aniston, who was shooting Bruce, Along Came Polly and Friends at the same time.
  3. Nona Gaye, The Matrix Reloaded, 2003.      Eva was among five potential successors to Aaliyah, killed in a 2001 plane crash. The Cuban-Amerian beauty has twice been Denzel Washington's lover: Training Day, 2001, Out Of Time, 2003.
  4. Cameron Diaz, Knight and Day, 2009.    As the tepid actioner went through nine writers over the years - from All New Enemies to Trouble Man to Wichita - Eva and Chris Tucker morphed into Cameron and Tom Cruise. And still flopped. Final title was, literally, senseless.
  5. Jessica Biel, Total Recall, 2011.     The hero succeeding Schwarzenegger was Colin Farrell in excellent 007-testing mode. Mendes, Eva Green, Rosario Dawson and Paula Patten were up for: his girlfriend Melina (ex-Rachel Ticotin in the 1989 version)).
  6. Kate Beckinsale, Total Recall, 2011.  Mendes, Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger were in the sf  mix for Lori Quaid, the wife of our hero, Colin Farrell. Well, that is to say, the UFB undercover agent posing as his missus.  Kate, of course, is The (real) wife of the re-make’s director, Len Wiseman.  He failed in any retread’s #1 rule. Build a better movie.
  7. Alice Braga, Queen of the South, TV, US-Spain-Malta-Mexico, 2016-2020   Change of  Mexican Drug Lord Teresa Mendoza, although Braga (Sônia’s niece) is  Brazilian, not Mexican. Mendes is Miami-born American.
