Teammates in the kitchen.
eva mendes revealed she and long-term partner Ryan Gosling divided responsibilities when it comes to tackling household chores, admitting she’s a total “kitchen freak”.
“Ryan is the cook. He is an incredible cook,” she told People in a profile published on May 13. “I think there’s a really nice balance between ‘you cook, I clean’. And it just works for us.”
Admitting she’s also a bit of a “sink control freak,” Eva, 48, said she actually finds cleaning up the dishes therapeutic.
“Life is so chaotic. But all I have control over is my house, my kitchen,” she said. “So when I do the dishes, it’s meditative for me. It really goes deeper than just tidying up. It really gives me clarity. A clean sink equals a clear mind to me.”
The tow bar star explained that growing up in a tiny apartment with lots of people made her appreciate that everything was okay.
“When the house was clean, it was like, ‘Hey, I just feel better,'” she shared. “Everyone felt better. So for me it’s really emotional.”
