You might think getting pressure from social media happens to ordinary people and not the rich and famous, however, it seems no one is immune to the toxic nature of the social media streets.
Fast 2 Fast 2 Furious star, Eva Mendes admits she isn’t a big fan of social media, but she does use it to connect with other women, which she does enjoy. “I do not like posting things for Instagram. It’s kind of stressful for me. I don’t enjoy it, but I love connecting with other women,” she says, speaking at the Create and Cultivate Summit.
On her fashion collections, Eva says it's obvious for her to include plus size offerings and she’s excited that her daughters - Amada Lee and Esmeralda Amada, who she has with her partner Ryan Gosling – will grow up in a world “where they get to see so much diversity”.
“I’ve always thought the fashion industry was a bit archaic that way. I never understood why there was really one form of beauty, and I’m just so excited that my girls are going to grow up in a world where they see so much diversity,” she says.
