Eva Mendes says women shouldn’t wear sweatpants — unless they want their relationships to end.
“You can’t do sweatpants. … No, ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!” the 41-year-old told “Extra.”
The stunning actress and new mom dished out the style advice after being asked if she wears comfortable pants around the house. She repeatedly said “no” before explaining that sweats can actually cause a couple to break up.
Gosling later defended Mendes, saying the sweatpants comment was a joke.
Obviously sweatpants thing was a joke. Wearing them now. That's right, tweeting in sweatpants. Rats! Said too much! You win again Twitter.

Mendes apologized herself on Instagram saying she was "just kidding."
Dear favorite pair of sweatpants. I was just kidding when I said you're the #1 cause of divorce. Everyone knows that orange crocs are the #1 cause of divorce. Either way it was a bad joke and feel terrible if you or anyone thought I was serious. Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs.
“I haven’t eaten meat in about six years, because I don’t agree with factory farming here,” she said. “This is just what worked for me, it’s important to say, but when I cut that out I immediately felt better. And also, after a year of eliminating it, my skin looked brighter and healthier overall.”
For exercise, she lifts light weights, practices yoga and goes on hikes.
Motherhood has also made Mendes appreciate her own mom more, she told “Extra.”
“Now I understand so much, my mother’s never gotten more ‘I love you so much, Mommy’ texts, I mean, randomly. … Ya, I get it now,” she said of life with a 6-month-old.
