Washington, July 17 : Actress Eva Mendes is full of praises for the world's press for not "trashing" her rehab stint.
The 30-year-old stunner entered Utah's Cirque Lodge centre in February this year.
As for the reason why she entered rehab, it has been said that she had to "proactively" attend to "some personal issues".
"Actually, the media has been pretty nice to me. They've really trashed some people, so I'm actually thankful that it didn't get too crazy," Contactmusic quoted Eva, as saying. "But for all the stuff that came out a few months ago about substance abuse, there were so many wrong stories," she said.
Eva added: "It's just better for you not to know, because it really does make me a better actor at the end of the day."
