    Eva Mendes thinks physical shops are a "dying breed"

    The 'Place Beyond the Pines' actress - who has Esmeralda, five, and Amada, three, with husband Ryan Gosling - admitted it "means a lot" to have her New York & Company fashion line stocked in actual stores because it reminds her of hanging out at the mall with her friends as a teenager


    She told HOLA! USA magazine: "I grew up in the '80s and '90s, and as soon as I turned 12, my mom would let me go to the mall with my girlfriends because it was only a few blocks away.

    "I have a very strict Cuban family, and all we would do is hang out in malls. So the fact that I'm in an actual brick & mortar store means a lot to me because it is a dying breed."

    The 45-year-old star credits her mother and older sisters for her interest in fashion.

    She said: "I have two sisters that are older than me, and I remember seeing them and my mom when they would put a little bit of effort into what they were wearing. I would stare at them, and I loved to see them feel good about wearing something beautiful."

    And Eva bonds with her mom by talking about her parent's favourite Latina fashion icons from the past.

    She said: "My mom helps me with a lot of women that I personally didn't know growing up.

    "I get a lot of inspiration from Latin women from that era, and then me and my mom will start to talk and look up to stuff, and it's just fun. That's a way for me and my mom to bond."
