Ryan Gosling may have been nominated for an Oscar this year, but his lady Eva Mendes was noticeably absent but the mom of two tells Shape Magazine she’s a homebody! “What people don’t know about me is that I love being home,” Eva says in the April 2017 issue. “Instead of hitting the red carpet, I’d rather be with our girls.” The girls being daughters with Gosling—Esmeralda, 2, and Amada, 11 months.
Eva also shared her exercise regimen.”I love doing intervals, like running and sprinting, and I see great results with that versus the 30 or 45 minutes of steady cardio I used to do on the treadmill. Between intervals, I lift weights. Right now I’m sticking to light weights because I have a herniated disc in my lower back. It’s pretty severe, and I have to work around it. I love squats, but I’ve been told that I have to do lunges instead of squats for the time being. I know a lot of people wouldn’t find that heartbreaking, but I really do!
“I’m off-season right now, so I work out three days a week. But when I’m getting ready for an event or in the summer, it’s five days a week. I don’t exercise more than that though, because I see better results when my body has a rest period.”
Eva also confessed that she wears makeup everyday. “I wear makeup every day. Typically, it’s minimal—a little eyeliner, lip liner and balm, and some concealer. It takes me about five minutes to apply it. But when I get ready for an event or a dinner, I do like to take my time putting my makeup on. To me, the process of getting ready can be really, really romantic. It takes me probably 45 minutes because I go very slow.
We still wanted to see her SLAY the Oscar Red Carpet! Didn’t you!
