Eva Mendes doesn’t believe in wearing sweatpants, which she thinks is a contributing factor to failed marriages. The new mom advises other women to never wear these comfortable clothes around the house.
Mendes gave birth to her first child with boyfriend Ryan Gosling, Esmeralda, six months ago. She now says she appreciates her own mother that much more because of it.
“Now I understand so much, my mother’s never gotten more ‘I love you so much mommy’ texts,” she told Extra. “I get it now.”
Mendes went on to talk about her relationship with Gosling, one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. Her biggest advice to keeping a relationship or marriage alive is, “You can’t do sweatpants.”
She added, “Ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!”
Mendes recently did her first cover shoot since giving birth but she admitted she got a lot of “help” with it.
“You’re helped in those situations, I want women at home to know, you’re lit, you’re angled, so yes, it was a few months after the baby, but with a lot of help,” she said.
