Before her break in Hollywood – Mendes worked her way up through commercials to music videos, including an appearance in Will Smith's video "Miami" (1996) and Aerosmith's video "Hole in My Soul" (1997). The 35-year old actress has been in such movies as 2 Fast 2 Furious, Training Day, Hitch and The Spirit.
Now aside from acting, Mendes is also employed by Revlon Cosmetics as an international spokeswoman. She is also an active supporter of breast cancer research.
