Funny enough, even famous celebrities have other career aspirations sometimes!

Just ask Eva Mendes, who recently revealed that if she wasn't making it big in Hollywood as an actress, she would be just as content designing buildings and creating a beautiful things for others to enjoy.

"If I wasn't an actress, I would be an architect and an interior designer…yes, definitely!" she offered, without missing a beat. "And a florist! Oh, I love making floral arrangements," she added with a grin.

Aww! Who knew?!                          

The gorgeous star, who also serves as Vogue Eyewear's Global Brand Ambassador, recently filmed a few promotional videos for the optical line and chatted about her favorite styles and trends.

"I love making a splash, but sometimes if you make too much of a splash, it dominates your outfit," she advised.

She also cheerfully chatted about the latest eyewear collaboration with designer Charlotte Ronson, who threw a star-studded party in L.A. to kick it off last night, and showed off a few of her favorite styles from the range.
