Actress Eva Mendes has a new skill to draw on for any future roles - she's a trained masseuse.
The Hitch star learned the basic techniques growing up in a bid to help her mother's joint problems, but she recently took a professional class - and is proud of her talent.
She tells, "I just took a course in Thai massage. It sounds so funny, but I enjoy giving massages. My mom has terrible neck and back problems, so I grew up massaging her and I feel like she trained me well, so I took a course in Thai massage. I've got to say, I've been told I'm pretty good.
"In the States, I'm not certified, but overseas I am. It's harder to get certified here, in the States."
