Eva Mendes says she is not ready to come back to Hollywood as she feels her children are "still so little".
The 44-year-old actor, who has daughters Esmeralda, four, and Amada, two, with partner Ryan Gosling, said she wants to focus on bringing up her kids.
"I'm just so obsessed with my kids that I don't want to leave them. They're just still so little," Mendes told E! News.
The actor said being a parent is no mean feat and raising her children without her and Gosling's families' support would not have been the same.
"I don't feel like I have it balanced at all. I kind of have been figuring it out as I'm going along and it's just important to have a support system. I have my family, I have Ryan's family and that's just like, invaluable to have family around supporting you," she said.
Mendes was last seen in 2014's "Lost River".
