She added, “As a mother now, there are many roles I won’t do.”

Mendes and her longtime partner Ryan Gosling share two daughters together, Esmeralda, 5, and Amada, 3.

“There are many subject matters that I don’t want to be involved with, so it limits my choices and I’m fine with that,” she continued. “I have to set an example for my girls now. But no worry, I got some side hustles. Ha! Thanks for asking. All the best for 2020.”
