In a recent Extra interview, Eva Mendes shared her secret to a lasting relationship. “You can’t do sweatpants… ladies,” she said. “Number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!” Normally, I would be willing to learn any (and I mean any) tip to keep a man like Ryan Gosling happy, but sweatpants are just something I would never sacrifice. Not even for The Notebook dreamboat himself.
Wearing sweatpants is like lying luxuriously on a goddamn cloud invented by the retail gods. You can wear them for a variety activities – most importantly, eating – and they never, ever let you down.
I happen to know that guys dig them. And by guys, I mean Drake, who likes his chicks with “sweatpants, hair tied, chillin’ with no makeup on.” Now that’s what I’m talking about.
Ryan, I love you. But my love for sweatpants is just too deep to break considered we’ve spent a lifetime together.
Eva, I hate to say this but right now but I’m totally
Hey, girl. Ryan Gosling actually doesn’t care if you wear sweatpants. He even has a pair, too!
Obviously sweatpants thing was a joke. Wearing them now. That's right, tweeting in sweatpants. Rats! Said too much! You win again Twitter.

And Eva swears she was just kidding about the whole thing. * Cue the side eye *
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.
