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.
