151166561TT00064_The_Place_Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are a private couple compared to the celebs who post countless romantic photos on Instagram and discuss getting their names/faces tattooed on each others bodies. There hasn’t been a magazine cover with baby Esmeralda on it. We don’t know a lot about what Eva and Ryan’s relationship is like but during an interview with Extra, Eva revealed there is one thing she definitely doesn’t wear at home. Eva was describing her style and she revealed that she never, ever wears sweatpants. Take a look at her reaction when AJ Calloway asks if she wears sweatpants and a t-shirt at home:


Eva was saying how she liked to wear dresses and skirts and when AJ asked if opts for a more casual look at home, Eva said, “You can’t do sweatpants… ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!” I guess that means there will never be any photos of Eva and Ryan in coordinating fleece pants on her new Instagram account.

Eva seemed to be joking around about the divorce comment, but there are a lot of people who are like Eva and think you shouldn’t wear sweatpants even at home. If Eva feels comfortable wearing dresses and skirts and looking glamorous 24/7, that is great. She should be able to wear high heels to the gym if that makes her feel good.

The whole “no sweatpants” debate gets ridiculous when anti-sweatpants people start telling others they shouldn’t wear them. If people believe that a pair of drawstring pants will genuinely ruin a relationship, that relationship is probably doomed whether someone puts on a comfy pair of pants or whether they wear a ballgown all the time. Everyone should feel comfortable enough with their partner that they can wear whatever they want and be able to express themselves instead of walking about projecting the image of  a “perfect” dressed-up partner. If a relationship cannot handle a pair of sweatpants I would hate to see what would happen when there are real issues to deal with.
