Eva Mendes: Sweatpants on Women No. 1 Cause of Divorce

By    |   Friday, 20 March 2015 06:48 AM

Actress Eva Mendes says sweatpants worn by women to stay comfortable are the leading cause of divorce in the country.

The actress, who is married to one of Hollywood's top leading men in Ryan Gosling and gave birth to a daughter six months ago, told celebrity television show "Extra" that she never wears sweatpants around the home.

"Sweatpants? No, no, no, no, no. You can't do sweatpants." said the 41-year-old actress. "No. Ladies, number one cause of divorce in America – sweatpants. No. You can't do that."

Mendes' sweatpants rants brought a terse responds from Erica Pearson in a New York Daily News "mom's open letter" on Thursday.

"I thought the days when moms felt the pressure to look as perfect as Betty Draper from 'Mad Men' each morning just might be behind us," Pearson wrote. "Eva, maybe celebrities don't realize it, but for the rest of us taking care of a new baby can make basic beauty routines like haircuts and even showers feel like luxuries — and dads should be cool with that."

Pearson then continued with a full-throated celebration of sweatpants, pointing out how they have become a fashion statement for other celebrities and that maybe Mendes is missing out.

"And in defense of sweatpants, they’ve actually been fashionable for awhile now — with high and low versions that are cooler than those tracksuits that Paris Hilton wore everywhere in the early 2000s, and the Lululemon yoga gear that proliferated a few years ago," Pearson wrote. "Balenciaga put some on the runway — so did Stella McCartney."

Mendes told "Extra" that sweatpants aside, sleeping is her No. 1 priority these days with her new daughter Esmeralda getting adjusted to her sleeping routine.

"But you never know, right, something random can happen and she's just suddenly not sleeping through the night and you're like, wait, I thought we were sleeping through the night, what's up? Mendes told "Extra." "Why does it always happen at three or four in the morning?"
