Eva Mendes: “Ryan’s the cook; I clean”

Hollywood actress Eva Mendes recently had an interaction with ‘People’ magazine. She opened up about the domestic situation of her house and how the chores are divided between her and her long-term boyfriend, Ryan Gosling.

For the unversed, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been in a relationship for several years. The duo lives together and are parents to two girls.

Speaking about how things work at home, Mendes (48) said, “Ryan’s the cook. He’s an incredible cook. I think that there’s a really nice balance to ‘you cook, I clean’. And it just works for us.”

Mendes added that for her “clean sink equals clear mind”, so she uses cleaning dishes as a way to calm herself after a stressful day.

Mendes said, “Life is so chaotic. But the one thing I can control is my house, my kitchen. So, when I do the dishes it’s meditative for me. It really goes deeper than just cleaning up. It really gives me clarity. Clean sink equals clear mind for me.”

The ‘Hitch’ actress said that she finds the cleaning process “emotional” because when she was growing up, she lived in “a tiny tiny apartment”. This was reported by femalefirst.co.uk.

She shares that with the pandemic still not completely over, it’s a “mess” to work from home. Speaking about it, Mendes said, “It’s a mess! I’ll be Zooming with various people throughout the day and I have no idea. I’ll see people kind of giggle, and I see my five-year-old, who just turned six, will be right behind me with her blankie and looking so cute.”

She further shared that though there were ground rules in place like only call her if it’s “super important”, Mendes finds that it’s often ignored. She said, “Of course, my six-year-old will run in and say, ‘It’s so important’. And I’m just like, ‘What?’ She’s like, ‘Essie took my Barbie’, but it’s hard to be mad because it’s so cute.”

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling are notoriously private about their life and rarely talk about their relationship or their family. Even though the two never got married, they are considered one of the rock-solid couples of Hollywood.
