Ha! This is pretty cute!

Eva Mendes recently revealed that when she was a little girl, she wanted to become a nun - but that all quickly changed when she discovered that they don't get paid!

She explains:

"We didn't grow up with a lot of money so I would always tell my mom, 'Mommy I am going to buy you a big house when I grow up, and a car.' And my sister said to me one day when I was ten, 'How are you going to buy mom all these things? You are going to be a nun and nuns don't get paid.' I said, 'What?' and that was it, my convent dreams were over. I feel I have so much to be thankful for, and it means nothing if I can't give back. I do it within my own family and I do it with certain charities, particularly the art of the Elysium, which helps children in hospital heal themselves through art therapy."

So sweet!

And we commend Eva for taking her very lucrative career path and choosing to give back to others!

You definitely couldn't have done that as a nun, bb.

    I wanted to be a nun too. They make it sound so great when you're in Catholic school. I had a teacher who had been one for 20 years, then left it and has been married now for over 30 years. Wonderful lady, did a lot of good in her life.

    Yeah, because Mother Teresa, who was a nun, NEVER gave back to others. And my cousin, who is a nun and works at an AIDS hospital in Kenya, NEVER gives back to others. There are many, many ways to give back that don't involve money. Idiot.

    seriously perez… this is the most idiotic thing you have ever said. why don't you try living in a third world country and really see how nuns live their life. they have nothing yet they help people without getting paid. everything does not revolve on money you idiot. i'm gonna pray for you.

    you really need it.

    Now shes worships the goat of Mendes. BTW nuns are major alcoholics.

    How ironic, the way(s) she even got to her current lucrative career was anything but nun-like.



  9. 9

    yea instead of being the person who helps the people by directly interacting with them, she can buy people to do that! so much more helpful
    fame and money really dissociate people from reality…

    PEREZ, Nuns certainly give back. They dedicate their entire lives to charity and prayer. They may not have a checkbook, but they spend their time helping people/causes and never ask for recognition.
