Eva Mendes makes a point of only wearing her regular clothes when at home with her children.
The Hitch actress is one of the most stylish women in Hollywood, and in recent years, has cemented her credentials by developing cosmetics line CIRCA Beauty and designing for New York & Company.
Eva also shares daughters Esmerelda, four, and Amada, three, with her actor partner Ryan Gosling, and she has now explained that she tries to keep her household as normal as possible by not drawing attention to her red carpet ensembles.
“What I try to emphasise is that I don’t let them see me put attention to how I dress,” she said in an interview for U.S. Women’s Health magazine. “They’ve never seen me get ready for something; they’ve never seen me at work. Which is fine, for whoever wants to do it that way, but the way I keep it normal is by not letting them see me in these situations. I’m just mom. And I’m more than happy to just be mom.”
At present, Eva is focusing on her clothing line and getting back into a regular exercise routine with her trainer. Her gym sessions focus on cardio, stability and strength, and while the brunette beauty doesn’t necessarily always enjoy working out, she does it to protect her health.
“I have blood work done at least twice a year because I have high blood sugar, and high cholesterol runs in my family,” the 45-year-old commented, adding that she tries to eat lots of eggs, salmon, and quinoa, though will indulge her sweet tooth from time to time. “I’m not squeaky-clean healthy!”
