Eva Mendes loves to clean her kitchen. The actress co-owns a cleaning brand founded by women and says cleaning brings her joy. Speaking to People magazine, the 48-year-old admitted that life is chaotic, but mastering the things you can do brings a sense of calm. “The only thing I have control over is my house, my kitchen. So when I do the dishes, it’s meditative for me,” she said.
For Eva Mendes, cleaning goes deeper than just tidying up, because the process really gives her a sense of clarity. “A clean sink equates to a clear mind to me,” she said.
She also revealed that when it comes to cooking, it’s her husband, actor Ryan Gosling, who’s in charge. She described him as an “incredible cook.”
Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, who collaborated in the 2012 film The Place Beyond The Pines, seem to have mastered the art of balancing household chores. As Mendes told People, “I think there’s a really nice balance between ‘you cook, I clean’. And for us it just works.”
The Hollywood couple is also the parents of two daughters Esmeralda and Amanda. Talking about her love of cleaning the kitchen, Mendes admitted she’s a “control freak” about the sink, calling it a therapeutic experience for her when she opens a dishwashing shop.
Mendes revealed that she grew up in a small apartment with a lot of people, and her family didn’t have much. However, she added that when the house was clean, it was like, ‘Hey, I just feel better.’ Everyone felt better. So for me it’s very emotional.”
She is a creative person and with the pandemic she has learned how to accommodate her professional and personal life at home.
