Eva MendesShe and her long-term partner revealed their relationship Ryan GoslingSplit the household chores responsibilities, even though she admits to being a total “kitchen freak”.

Ryan is the best cook. He is an extraordinary cook,” she said. People in a profile published May 13. It’s my opinion that there’s an ideal balance of ‘you clean, you cook’. It just works for us.”

Confessing she’s also a bit of “control freak about the sink,” Eva, 48, said that she actually finds it therapeutic to tidy up the dishes.

Life is chaotic. She shared that the only thing she can control is her house and kitchen. So when I’m doing the dishes, it feels meditative. This goes beyond just washing dishes. Clear thinking is what it gives me. Clear mind = clean sink for me.

The Hitch star explained that growing up in a tiny apartment with lots of people made her appreciate when everything was in order.

It was her experience that when the house was clean, she felt better. “Everybody felt better. It’s very emotional for me.”
