Exclusive! Eva Mendes Explains the Surprising Thing She Does for Fun

The star of The Place Beyond the Pines describes her ideal Saturday and reveals what it was like working with boyfriend Ryan Gosling

For the past few weeks, Eva Mendes has been extremely busy promoting her new drama, The Place Beyond the Pines (in theaters March 29). But luckily for her, she's had her costar -- and off-screen boyfriend -- Ryan Gosling by her side during the press tour.

When iVillage sat down with the 39-year-old actress, we asked her what she does when her schedule isn't quite as hectic. "I'm such a homebody, it's crazy," she says. "I'm obsessed with decorating my house...Oh, and I clean. I love it. I love it." (Whether or not she uses a Ryan Gosling dish towel while cleaning is yet to be determined.)

Watch the iVillage exclusive interview below to find out what it was like for Mendes to work with two of the hottest men in Hollywood (did we mention Bradley Cooper's in the movie, too?) and how she feels about bad boys vs. nice guys.
