Eva Mendes states raising kids resembles running some kind of bed-and-breakfast with “very intoxicated and aggressive visitors”.
The ‘Place Beyond the Pines’ star – who has Esmeralda, 6, and Amada, 4, with her man Ryan Gosling – has quipped about her time in lockdown with her family, joking that it resembles running a facility due to the fact that her kids are like “mad and bossy” visitors.
Talking to the Sydney Morning Herald paper, she stated: “Sometimes it feels like we are running some kind of bed-and-breakfast with very drunk and aggressive guests. We really do feel like we are working in a hotel, and the guests are angry and bossy and demand food brought to them. And by the time they go to sleep, we’re left to just clean up and talk about how they’ve treated us that day! When we feel like we’re just ‘in it’, like all parents do during these times, we remind ourselves that these are the good times, because we’re all together and we’re all safe right now.”
On the other hand, Eva is “trying to be an cool mom” whilst self-isolating.
The ‘Hitch’ star said: This is me. By my kid. It’s pretty accurate. No I haven’t become a master baker or a good cook during quarantine. I haven’t seen a gym in two months. I haven’t written a novella. I’ve just been trying to be a fun mom and not lose my marbles. Sending so much love out there. Reading comments and happy to connect so let me know how you’re feeling. Amore, amore, amore. (sic)”
Eva has “a clear boundary” when it concerns her kids.
