Even Ryan Gosling can love a lady who scrubs out every once in a while! Despite saying in a recent interview that she never wears sweatpants, even around the house, because they’re the “number one cause of divorce in America,” Eva Mendes took to her newly-created Instagram account to pay tribute to her favorite pair of lounging-wear.
“Dear favorite pair of sweatpants,” she wrote, with a caption of the comfy pants. “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 I feel terrible if your or anyone thought I was serious. Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs.”
The actress’ hunky boyfriend and baby daddy also revealed to followers that his lady’s comment was made in jest. “Obviously sweatpants thing was a joke,” Ryan tweeted. “Wearing them now. That’s right, tweeting in sweatpants. Rats! Said too much! You win again Twitter.”
Especially with a six month old baby at home, let’s hope Eva can find some time to kick back in her sweats! The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Esmeralda, in September.
