Actress Eva Mendes has spilled the secret on how she “survives” without any skills in the kitchen.
On the work front though Mendes’s performance in Training Day (2001) marked a turning point in her career, and led to parts in the commercially successful films 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) and Hitch (2005). She starred in Ghost Rider (2007) and The Spirit (2008), both film adaptations of comics, and ventured into more dramatic territory with We Own the Night (2007), Bad Lieutenant (2009), Last Night (2010), and The Place Beyond the Pines (2012). Her other films include Out of Time (2003), The Women (2008), The Other Guys (2010), and Girl in Progress (2012).
After talking about the delicious clean food she just had, the actress revealed in a rare candid confession that her longtime boyfriend Ryan Gosling is actually a good chef, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The 45-year-old actress came out with the revelation when a fan replied to her on Tuesday post on Instagram that saw her enjoying a heart-shaped macaroon made by a catering company.
The fan wrote in the comment section: “Love macaroons what” else did they make there and do you and Ryan cook at all ?”
She responded: “Ryan is an amazing chef AND baker.”
Mendes went on to say more over the “La La Land” actor”s cooking skills.
She said: “For reals. Incredible. No joke. I”m not sure that what I do is cooking. Its more like steaming veggies and juicing and making rice. He really cooks. I survive.”
“BUT where it I totally go off roading is when it comes to sweets. I just lose all self control. I”m really working on it because sugar is obviously no good. Sugar is not my friend. And I need to let it go. But it”s a process. Also Not sure how old your kids are, but mine at 3 and 5 and there really is no sitting down when I”m with them.”
Mendes added: “So they help me keep moving ALL day long. Then three days a week I carve out my gym time. Oh! And I take many supplements. Omega 3 and CoQ10 are my two favorites. Hope that helps!!! But it”s a struggle to stay on the path to wellness for me. It”s a daily practice.”
Mendes has been in a relationship with Gosling since 2011. They share two daughters together, 5-year-old Esmeralda and 3-year-old Amada.
