Eva Mendes: I love therapy

LONDON: Eva Mendis has heaped praise on psychiatrists - insisting therapy has made her "a completely different person".

The Hitch actress spent several weeks in a rehab facility in Utah last year (08), but has refused to reveal why she needed the stint at the centre.

But she is proud to admit she is a huge fan of therapy sessions, because she is such an emotional person.

The star tells Marie Claire magazine, "(I'm) a woman who has been through life experiences, thank God, and therapy. I love therapy!

"I’m very into it. I’m very in touch with my feelings, so I’m a completely different person.

"Not that different but you know... I gotta tell you, there’s nothing like going in and sitting down and talking to someone who has no emotional tie to your life.

"Just to talk to someone. It’s amazing."
