She announced her continued acting career in an Instagram post on Friday. With the success of my other efforts, I could spend more time at home with my children than acting ever would have permitted.
Mendes displays several articles from various newspapers that explain why she reportedly left the acting industry, all of which she dismisses in the video. Aiming to change that perception, she concluded, “I never quit,” in the accompanying piece.
After starring in 2014’s Lost River with longtime lover Ryan Gosling, Mendes said she was unimpressed by the stereotypical roles she was offered at the time. To her, working on the film that was Gosling’s directorial debut and was partially inspired by his upbringing was a dream come true. That’s an extremely high bar to reach.
The two actors became fast friends on the set of 2011’s The Place Beyond the Pines, where Mendes and Gosling first worked together. The couple currently has two daughters: Esmeralda Amada, 8, and Amada Lee, 6.
