(ANI): Eva Mendes has revealed that she gave up her childhood dream
of becoming a nun after she found out that they didn"t get any
salary. The sexy Hitch star has confessed that she was a "prude" as
a child and felt a convent career would be perfect for her. But it
was when her sister revealed the poor truths about nuns that she
dropped her plans to run after her dream.
"We grew up, not in a poor, poor family, but lower-middle class;
a lot of bills and my mother was always stressing about money and
stuff. And I would promise her, ''Mum, I'm gonna buy you a house
and pay all your bills one day,"" Contactmusic quoted her as
saying. “My older sister... said, ''How you gonna do all this?
Don't you know nuns don't get paid?'' And I was like, ''What?''"
