Actor Eva Mendes admits that she feels guilty for being a working mother.
The 43-year-old actor says she often struggles with striking a balance between her work and life, reports E! News.
“Oh my God, nobody warns you about the guilt that you feel when you do work! I don’t know how I find balance, because I think it is like a day to day kind of struggle, you know?” says Mendes.
The actor, who has two daughters – Esmeralda (3 years) and 16-month-old Amada – with actor partner Ryan Gosling, 36, says she knows she will never fully be able to stop feeling guilty.
“I’m all for obviously taking care of myself – that’s how I can take care of them of course – but that guilt that is just kind of always there. It’s like, ‘Ugh, this is gonna be there forever now’,” she says.
