Eva Mendes was allegedly caught using her cell phone while driving.

The 'Training Day' star narrowly avoided a ticket when she was pulled over by a police officer on a bicycle in Los Angeles after he spotted her chatting into the device in her grey Lexus SUV.

The 39-year-old actress was reportedly given a piece of paper but apparently talked her way out of a ticket, as a law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that they have no record of a citation.

The brunette beauty has had a difficult time recently as rumours surfaced she split from her boyfriend Ryan Gosling after almost three years together over Christmas.

But a spokesperson for the actress told E! News the breakup reports were just rumours.

The '2 Fast 2 Furious' star also sparked speculation she was pregnant when she refused to go through an airport security scan recently.

But her publicist said: ''She has never gone through the scanners at the airport; she has always elected to be hand-checked instead.''

Eva previously admitted she had no desire to become a mother.

She said: ''I'm certainly not thinking about being a mom. I can't imagine it. I'm too selfish.''
