Eva Mendes always thought she had a “strange” face.
The 46-year-old actress has read up on her insecurities in the past and admitted that although she used to believe that her facial features were “strange”, nowadays she wishes she still looked the way she used to Has.
She shared a photo of herself from the 2003 film Once Upon a Time in Mexico and wrote on Instagram: “I just came across this picture from a movie that was shot almost 20 years ago.
“I remember seeing this photo back then and thinking my face looked ‘weird’ and my bone structure was strange… yadda yadda… you know all the insecurities a 26 year old can have.
“In the meantime, 20 years later and now I wish I still had that ‘weird’ face and that weird ‘bone structure’. [sad face emoji] (sic) ”
The ‘Place Beyond the Pines’ actress admitted she wasn’t sure why she decided to post the photo, but felt that there was a lesson to be learned somewhere.
She added, “Why is my point? I’m not sure. Maybe if you hate a photo of yourself, wait 20 years then you’ll love it.

Earlier this year, Eva – who has kids Esmeralda, six, and Amada, five, with partner Ryan Gosling – recently hinted that she might return to acting soon after taking a break from raising their daughters.
She said in October: “I have a feeling that my ambition has not disappeared, it has just shifted to the children. I applaud and look up to the women who can do everything, but I am not one of them.
“And luckily I have a choice not to work, and I realize how lucky I am that it is even a choice. I was so happy to incubate with my babies, but now they are [older]I’m starting to feel that my ambition is coming back. “
