Occupation: Actress
Biggest accomplishment this year: Co-starring in the critically acclaimed indie drama The Place Beyond the Pines

While we were very disappointed not to see her in Fast Six after her cameo in Fast Five, Eva Mendes still found time to appear alongside her de facto husband Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond the Pines earlier this year. She also announced in February of this year that she'll be launching her own fashion collection, adding that to her stable of other products that include linens and dinnerware. Even at age 39, Mendes looks like someone half her age and continues to model for Revlon, Pantene, and Calvin Klein.
