Eva Mendes On Marriage: “It Isn’t Necessary…”
Holy Matrimony…Yeah…Eva Mendes just isn’t that into it.
The We Own the Night star, who has been dating filmmaker George Augusto for nearly 10 years, says she’ll likely never take The Wedding March down the aisle because marriage is an “unnecessary” and “very old tradition” that people only take part in because society expects them to.
Listen up as Eva breaks things down: “I just don’t think marriage is necessary, as necessary as society makes it. And I don’t have a negative point of view on it. I just think it’s a very old tradition and if you look back to what marriage symbolises in the first place… it has nothing to do with why we get married today.”
Eva previously labeled marriage “boring” and says that she doesn’t know if she wants kids, but has admitted to being “extremely romantic.”
How’s that for an oxymoron?
