The `Hitch` star`s mind was more focused on her career than children at the time she met her long-time boyfriend. Mendes admitted in an interview with Nova 96.9`s Fitzy & Wippa,"I never wanted babies before until I fell in love with Ryan, and it kind of worked out to where I was 40 and having my first baby. I think I was 42 for the second one, so it worked out in that way that I had a career and then I change my focus to my family. "During the conversation, the `2 Fast 2 Furious` star also declared that since her children are getting older, she thinks she`s "definitely going back" to acting after a six-year hiatus.
The `Lost River` actor told the radio station,"I am [considering acting] now that [my kids] getting a bit older, but I really feel like I never want to send the wrong message to young women out there. It`s not an either/or situation. "Mendes continued: "I was lucky enough to work my bum off for 20 years."
"I feel like it`s time," she said of returning to the big screen. The mom of two admitted, "the list is getting shorter and shorter of stuff that I`d do."
"I don`t want to do anything violent. I don`t want to do something risque. I think the only thing that`s left is Disney!" she quipped.Mendes was last seen in `Lost River,` which Gosling directed in 2014.Just days before her radio interview, the "Ghost Rider" star echoed her sentiments that she hasn`t found room to balance work and motherhood.
