Actress makes her New Year's resolution

Eva Mendes’ New Year’s resolution is to stop biting her fingernails.

The Hitch actress is desperate to ditch her bad habit – but isn’t confident she’ll succeed because she vows to stop every year and never manages to succeed.

She says: ‘For the 10th year in a row I will make a resolution not to bite my nails. And for the 10th year in a row I’m sure I will break that by 5 January. I think that’s the longest I went.’

But this year, Eva, 32, is so determined to stop that she’s going to see a hypnotherapist to help her willpower.

‘I’m hoping that will help me stop once and for all,’ she says. ‘It’s one of the things that I do that I no longer want to do.’
