Do Sweatpants Cause Divorce?

Actress Eva Mendes found out just how few people have a sense of humour last week when she quipped ‘sweatpants’ were the Number 1 cause of divorce in the States.

Twitter ran hot with enraged comment (cue #ComfortOverLove) after the Hitch and Stuck On You star and former face for brands like Calvin Klein and Revlon joked in an interview on extra that her style didn’t run to ‘loungewear’.

She told the award winning entertainment website Extra; “You can’t do sweatpants…ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!”

Enraged Response

Already in trouble with 90 per cent of the female population for having grabbed Ryan Gosling – they had a daughter, Esmeralda, in September – she brought more hot coals down on her head from enraged females.

If Eva Mendes is right and wearing sweatpants is the leading cause of divorce then do I even bother getting married?

“The number 1 cause to divorce is sweatpants” WHAT KIND OF LIFE DO YOU LIVE?

Along with the predictable there was also the nasty along the lines of “she isn’t married so she wouldn’t know.”

Orange Crocs Real Culprit

The seasoned star quickly tried to defuse the controversy on Instagram where she wrote: “Dear favourite 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 I feel terrible if you or anyone thought I was serious. Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs.”

Ryan To The Rescue

There have been some suggestions the couple are on the verge of splitting up living “virtually separate lives” after Eva has stayed home with baby while Ryan is off filming but in this instance her man came to the rescue.

“Obviously sweatpants thing was a joke,” the actor tweeted on Thursday. “Wearing them now. That’s right, tweeting in sweatpants. Rats! Said too much! You win again Twitter.”

Perhaps that’s the answer.

He followed up with:

“Word to the wise. Don’t joke about sweatpants or North Korea. Real hot button issues. Trust me.”

I Always Hated You in Those Pants

Meantime people have been having a lot of fun with the storm in a teacup. Can True Love Transcend Sweatpants asked one columnist.

Sara Miller wrote of a much lamented pair of pink sweatpants which her (soon to be ex) lover told her “he’d always hated and they look awful on you.” And then left her a few months later for a woman with a closet full of sexy lingerie…   Now she wonders  . . .  was there a connection?
