This Is Why Eva Mendes Didn’t Attend Oscars With Husband Ryan Gosling

Today’s NUMBER TWO story in the BIG 5!
Eva Mendes has kept a very low profile in recent months.

While her longtime love Ryan Gosling hit red carpet after red carpet throughout awards season in light of his Oscar-nominated performance in La La Land, Mendes herself was nowhere to be found. But apparently, that’s exactly how she likes it.

In a new interview with Shape, Mendes revealed that she didn’t feel like she was missing out in the slightest by taking in the awards shows from the comfort of her own couch, surrounded by her and Gosling’s two children, Esmerelda, 2, and Amada, 10 months.

“What people don’t know about me is that I love being home,” she told Shape. “Instead of hitting the red carpet, I’d rather be with our girls.”

“In some ways, it’s been more challenging to get back in shape after my second daughter,” she admits. “Yet it’s not as hard as I thought it would be, because I’m always running around with the kids. I never sit down — I’m on the move all day.”

Although she has her hands full trying to balance motherhood, her acting career, and multiple fashion and beauty collaborations, Mendes always finds time to exercise, even if it’s only for a few minutes.

“Working out allows me to spend time on myself,” she explains. “Knowing that I have an hour to dedicate to my wellness is a priority for me now.”

She told the magazine that she hasn’t given up on all her unhealthy snacks, though. She still orders food delivery and indulges in Cadbury eggs like the rest of us.

“The mini ones and the big ones with the filling,” she said.
