Ryan Gosling says Eva Mendes’ comment that sweatpants are ‘number one cause of divorce’ was a joke

Mendes recently joked in an interview with Extra, saying that sweatpants are the “number one cause of divorce in America,” a fact that has sparked some comments.

Ryan Gosling took to Twitter on Friday and he expressed his opinion about what he called the “sweatpants thing.”

“Obviously sweatpants thing was a joke. Wearing them now. That’s right, tweeting in sweatpants. Rats! Said too much! You win again Twitter,” the actor, 34, wrote.

Mendes, 41, also wrote her opinion on Instragram about the comments she made.

“Dear favorite pair of sweatpants. I was just kidding when I said you’re the #1 cause of divorce,” she captioned a picture of a pair of sweatpants. “Everyone knows that orange crocs are the #1 cause of divorce.”

“Either way it was a bad joke and feel terrible if you or anyone thought I was serious,” the actress continued.

“Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs,” she added.
