SUNDAY TIMES WEB DESK:Eva Mendes, who has taken an extended hiatus from acting to care for her daughters Esmeralda and Amada, says she would return to the big screen and she would like to work with her husband and actor Ryan Gosling.

The two last starred with each other in the 2012 movie The Place Beyond The Pines. Mendes told  magazine that she would “absolutely” work with Gosling again, adding, “I’m excited to go back to work, it’s just not, like, I’m dying to do a movie again, so it has to be something really special.” She also said that she is the stricter parent to the couple’s daughters.

“I think I am. There’s that term ‘helicopter parent’, but aren’t you supposed to be a helicopter parent?… I’m strict about what they eat, and what they wear, and what time they go to bed. And what they watch, so yeah,” the 45-year-old actress said.
