Eva Mendes Jokes About Sweatpants; Internet Loses Its Mind

Eva+Mendes

Eva Mendes is a new mom and has been opening up about her experiences regarding motherhood, and her relationship with Ryan Gosling, on Extra. During one of these little chats, Ms. Mendes made a (joking) comment about sweatpants that caused the Internet to lose its mind and go into a tizzy. What did she say? From Extra:

You can’t do sweatpants… ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!

I mean obviously she’s joking — it’s not particularly hilarious LOLZ — but it’s clearly not meant to be serious, right? Well, people managed to leave comments like,

Seriously? If a guy is going to divorce me cuz I wear sweatpants then I don’t need him in my life.

I’m married 42 years to the same wonderful man and yes I wear sweatpants.Let’s see how many years she stays married while NOT wearing sweatpants. I highly doubt it will be 42 years.

Etc, etc. (It should be noted that Mendes is not married.)

Mendes and Gosling decided to do some damage control, with Gosling tweeting,


And Mendes posted a photo on Instagram of sweatpants, with the caption,

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.

Oh, brother! Yeah, her comment was kind of annoying and stupid, but anyone who seriously got offended by it needs to get a hobby, FOR REAL.

Young Ryan Gosling dancing will change your life

Okay, the headline is probably a bit of an overstatement. While your life may not change after watching a young Ryan Gosling get his dance on, it will certainly make you laugh and/or experience some serious second hand embarrassment. Those pants! Those moves! Yikes. He may be a super stud now, but it’s great to see that even Ryan Gosling had his own special humble beginnings.

Thankfully, Ryan has a good sense of humour about it and took to Twitter to show he’s a good sport.


There ya go. Do you feel better about life?

Eva Mendes talks babies and motherhood on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’

Eva Mendes just welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Esmeralda, with boyfriend Ryan Gosling a couple of months ago and she’s finally talking about the whole thing – pregnancy and her reasons for being so secretive, motherhood, baby weight and the like – during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Here’s what she had to say (via US Weekly):

“I think just early on, we decided it’s going to be so hard for her to have privacy,” Mendes said. “We thought this is the first opportunity we can give her to protect her and so that I had a nice calm pregnancy, which I did.”

While Mendes’ pregnancy was calm, her first two months of motherhood have been less relaxing. Asked whether baby Esmeralda, who was born on Sept. 12, is sleeping through the night, the Fast and Furious alum exclaimed, “No! No, God no. She’s 2 months! You know, we’re getting the hang of it, the sleeping thing, but yeah I’m exhausted and it’s the best.”

“Really, I’m so incredibly tired,” she added. “I thought I was tired before at times, but no. Nothing like this, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“The whole bounce back thing… I’m like… ‘Oh gosh. Ease up. It’s okay. We don’t have to…’ you know?” she explained. “I mean, eventually maybe, but certainly not in a couple weeks.”

Despite her relaxed demeanor, Mendes already looks slim and gorgeous, which she attributes to a natural action, rather than hitting the gym for hours on end.

“I’m, you know, breastfeeding,” she spilled. “I’ve always heard it. It really does help to shrink your uterus back to normal size. It does! I know it’s a really weird thing to say, but it does. It’s the best. So it’s breastfeeding is really helping and then obviously you want to be healthy for the baby because she’s eating kind of what I’m eating, so you want to make good choices.”

Well, that’s all very exciting. I’ve never really understood the fascination with celebrity moms/how they’re raising their babies. Women have kids all the time – just because you happen to be rich doesn’t make the process any different, except that you can afford to hire help so that you can actually sleep and not stay up all night with a screaming infant. Happy they’re happy, though – I sound sarcastic, but I do mean it!

Ryan Gosling granted a restraining order against his stalker

Alright, fess up – which one of you was stalking Ryan Gosling? Someone was, to the point that the new dad had to go and get a restraining order against the crazy who swears that she and Ryan are “twin flames”, whatever the hell that even means (I don’t think I want to know).

From TMZ:

According to legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Gosling says Grace Marie Del Villar has been sending harassing emails and packages … in one case she sent a torn-out page from a magazine featuring Eva Mendes and stapled a copy of her contact info to the page.

She has also bombarded the inbox of Ryan’s sister with messages, in one case saying, “I am kicking your brother’s head.”

The tipping point came on Oct. 28th, when Del Villar traveled from NYC to L.A. and showed up at Gosling family residence, rang the security gate and said she was, “Ryan’s twin.” She left a doll catalog at the gate.

She’s ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ryan, Eva, daughter Esmeralda.

His sister Mandi also got a restraining order against the stalker.

I feel like a broken record (and know I sound like one, too) when I say: WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? I mean, I know it’s complicated, and there are many mental illnesses, etc, but Jesus. I know we hear more about these stories because the targets/victims are celebrities and stuff like this happens in “real life” all the time, but it seems like crazy people do gravitate even moreso towards famous people. I wonder why that is? Either way, stay safe, Ryan!

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling named their baby…

eva mendes ryan gosling

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, last month, but until now we didn’t know many details, besides the fact that Ryan was apparently a doting father and Eva was just… there. Well, now we seemingly know the name of the baby, since TMZ paid someone to get a hold of the birth certificate.

Gosling and Mendes named their daughter Esmeralda Amada … according to the baby’s birth certificate, obtained by TMZ.

Amada was the name of Eva’s character in “We Own the Night” — and Esmeralda, well … maybe she’s a big fan of the ’96 Disney flick “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

Esmeralda! I mean, it’s a bit Disney, like they say, but it’s unique and I quite like it. What would the nickname for Esmeralda be, though? It’s a bit of a mouthful to say all the time. Esme? No, that’s too close to Twilight territory. I dunno, but I do like it.

However, I also think it’s tacky as shit that TMZ went to the lengths of getting a hold of the birth certificate for the sake of being the first to tell the world their kid’s name. Are birth certificates part of public record? I dunno, but I could have lived without that information.

Ryan Gosling is “madly in love” with his daughter

ryan gosling eva mendes

That headline sounded far creeper than it was meant, I promise. What I meant was, Ryan Gosling is head over heels crazy about being a dad to his new baby girl with  Eva Mendes (though that was a direct quote). How do we know how Ryan is feeling about fatherhood? After all, we don’t even know the baby’s name or anything. But one fine civil servant, also known as “a source”, has bravely come forward to offer Ryan’s thoughts on his behalf.

“Ryan is madly in love with the baby,” a source tells PEOPLE of the infatuated father, 33, adding that Mendes, 40, is loving her new title of “mom.”

And the proud parents aren’t alone in their doting: Grandmas Gosling and Mendes are doing their share of pampering, too.

“Ryan’s mom and Eva’s mom have both been helping,” the source says. “They have both been great. The grandmothers are both very excited and both very hands-on – as much as they can be.”

Mendes is “absolutely in heaven being a mom. She’s never been happier,” a source told PEOPLE after the birth. “She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created. It’s a really special time for them.”

Well, I’ll tell you one thing – I’ll sleep soundly tonight knowing that! Also, I think this is the first time I have actually felt bad for Eva for being so basic that the angle of the story is about Ryan, despite the fact that she’s the one who carried and gave birth to the baby. Poor girl.
