Eva Mendez too focused on her career to take a break

London: Actress Eva Mendez has revealed that she hasn`t been on vacation in years – because she doesn`t want to risk losing out on work by booking a holiday.

The Hitch star has spent the last few years working hard to build up her status in Hollywood, and admits she’s too focused on her career to take a break.

"It`s a very intense way to live. There are times when I wish I had more reflective moments. For instance, I`m incapable of taking a holiday - and I haven`t had one for years,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

“I`m incapable of sitting on a beach for a week. I just don`t do it. I`m too driven."
