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
Would you sacrifice sweatpants for Ryan Gosling?
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.
