Washington: Eva Mendes has attributed her success to knowing how not to say ‘yes’ to every script that came her way.
The 37-year-old actress has always felt that turning down scripts that she could not ‘fall in love’ with was the best option for her.
“I think that what can make a career is the stuff you say no to. A couple of years ago, I made a decision to only do things I was really in love with, whereas before I just did things that seemed right for my career - a big part, a good move,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“I`ve been in the industry for 10 years now, so I`m at a nice place where people know me and I don`t have to make financially-motivated decisions anymore. It`s empowering to be able to choose,” she added.
