Eva Mendes Was Totally Just Kidding When She Said Sweatpants Lead to Divorce

Calm down, everyone. The joke is on us!

Eva Mendes was totally kidding when she said the secret to keeping Ryan Gosling happy was by never wearing sweatpants (and that sweatpants actually are the #1 cause of divorce in America).

What did we learn from this story, however?

Mainly that Mendes and Gosling make the cutest couple on social media, due to their humorous posts regarding what Mendes (jokingly) said about sweatpants’s correlation to divorce and her boyfriend’s happiness.

Mendes posted to her Instagram this apology to her beloved cropped sweatpants, writing:

“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.”

She does in fact speak the truth about orange crocs…sweatpants might be overrated, but orange crocs teeter on the edge of being a deal breaker.

Gosling also posted on Twitter about the joke, writing sarcastically: 

Hats off to Hollywood’s cutest couple.
