Actress Eva Mendes is refusing to talk about her recent stint in rehab for fear of upsetting her mum.
The 30-year-old entered Utah's Cirque Lodge centre in February (08) to "proactively" attend to "some personal issues" but she had refused to elaborate on what they were.
She tells Parade magazine she's happy for the media to speculate about what might have been wrong - but she won't confirm or deny anything.
Mendes says, "There are different stories about why I decided to get help for myself. People can speculate all they want.
"I'm not going to clear up the misconceptions. I have to think of the pain it might bring my mother."
