Here’s why Eva Mendes wasn’t at the Oscars

Gather round, comrades. Eva Mendes would like to clear something up. You see, there’s a reason she didn’t join her long-term partner, Ryan Gosling, on the red carpet this awards season.

In an interview with Shape Magazine,the 43-year-old actress admitted that being at home is one of her greatest passions. “What people don’t know about me is that I love being home,” she says. “Instead of hitting the red carpet, I’d rather be with our girls.”

Mendes and Gosling share two daughters: Esmeralda, aged 2, and Amada, 11 months.
