Along with fame came personal challenges. In 2008 Mendes checked into Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab center for undisclosed issues. Her long-term relationship with filmmaker George Augusto ended in the late 2000s, but since September 2011 she has found new love in dating actor Ryan Gosling.
Mendes said she doesn't need marriage and kids to feel fulfilled. "I believe in commitment wholeheartedly,
but the institution of marriage doesn't appeal to me. Maybe I would consider the idea if gays were allowed to get married," she told the Sydney Morning Herald. She continued, "I'm certainly not thinking about being a mum at the moment. I can't imagine it. I'm too selfish, but I really want to get a pet pug."
Though she is no longer in her 20s, the public continues to acknowledge the actress's beauty. Maxim has included Mendes in its Hot 100 issue (No. 7 in 2007, No. 11 in 2010), and she was voted into AskMen.com's "Top 99 Most Desirable Women" in 2008 (No. 4) and 2009 (No. 1). She also made People magazine's 2012 "Most Beautiful at Every Age" list.
