Eva Mendes Reveals Daughters Esmeralda and Amada Are Obsessed With Dorothy From The Wizard Of Oz


While most parents are still toying with ideas on what to dress their children up for Halloween, actress Eva Mendes says she already has that base covered because daughters Esmeralda 5, and Amada, 3, always choose to dress up as The Wizard Of Oz‘s Dorothy every year. Speaking on The Kelly Clarkson show to host Kelly Clarkson, she said:

‘They’re constantly dressing up, and our kids are obsessed with The Wizard of Oz and Dorothy, so they’ve been Dorothy every year.”

The two little girls — whom she shares with fellow actor Ryan Gosling — even refuse to allow their mum to add a bit of blood and gore to their costumes for the spooky holiday.

“Maybe we can do a bloody Dorothy? Like can I just put some blood on you or something? Because, really, Dorothy again?”

Obsessed with the 1939 film they might be, but that doesn’t mean they’re the same when it comes to what to wear on any other occasions.

“They’ll be like: “Can I wear socks on my hands today?” And I’m like, “Yes, of course you can wear socks on your hands today.” So we make that happen.”
