Eva Mendes: Marriage is Very Old-Fashioned

Eva Mendes takes her pup on a walk around town on Friday (June 3) in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old actress recently spoke with the UK Mirror about her movie Last Night, which also stars Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington.

When asked why she hasn’t tied-the-knot with longtime boyfriend George Augusto, Eva responded, “Marriage is very old-fashioned. Old-fashioned bad.”

“Everybody’s relationship is so different. When you’re 20 it’s different from 25 or 30. It depends on the time of your life…” Eva added.

FYI: Eva is wearing alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet‘s Coral High Waist Wide Leg Pant and Prada Baroque Sunglasses in Black.

    that is so not a pup it’s a damn dog

  • dd

    She’s no pup either!

  • Nik

    Old fashioned bad!? Or maybe, ignorant Eva, it’s been a tradition so old that it’s romantic to tie yourself to the one you love, in every messy way possible. WOW, she’s so “above” it all, isn’t she!

  • Tpp

    What crap is that? Marriage is not old-fashioned.

  • goodQuote

    I’m 1000% agree with her about marriage.

    It is. Open ur eyes before condemning Eva and others who think like her.


    no one wants to marry an ugly alcoholic almost 40 year old woman.

  • dd

    Have you noticed it’s always the almost 40 year old chick who puts down marriage. Cameron Diaz, Eva Mendes……. Look in the mirror Eva, it ain’t pretty like it used to be!

  • Tpp

    Well I feel sorry for you then because you seem to never have experienced that state where you want to go through good and bad times with somebody. That is called love.

  • joe

    Maybe she doesn’t believe in marriage because her long time boyfriend doesn’t want to marry her? Just a thought

    While she’s entitled to her opinion, I respectfully disagree. I think marriage is a beautiful instituation when you marry the right person at the right time.

  • annab

    What a bad outlook she has….she must be so insecure about herself to say that about marriage. Been married eight years myself and it’s called trust and love for the other person. I will stay “old fashioned”.

  • Ladyb

    It’s time for Mendes and Cameron Diaz to shut up about marriage. If they don’t want to get married, that’s their choice but to keep on hammering how unsexy and old-fashioned marriage is, is tiring and to be honest, not promoting family values. There are couples that have made it to 90 years old and they are still married and love each other. This is what we should be promoting. These celebrities should just go away.

  • Ladyb

    It’s bad enough that only 50% of marriages survive in the U.S, can you imagine living in a country where most kids are born out of wedlock, and most adults are not married. This is what we will end up like if younder generation look up to these celebrities and start believing people like Eva Mendes and choose not to get married.

  • BEAN

    I can’t believe she is 37. WOW

  • Please

    she should speak for herself. there are so many in this country FIGHTING for their right to marry and this stupida puts in her 1 cent.

  • Hotel del Coronado

    Maybe marriage is considerate old fashioned in the environment she lives in but it’s not like that all around the world . The traditions are still alive but it’s a personal choice really . I’m not against marriage but it guarantees nothing . You don’t need a piece of paper to be committed to someone / Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp / . I’m sure many ,many people can stay together and be faithful to each other without being officially married,because it actually comes from the heart at the end of the day…

  • skskj

    She’s such a moron. If she learned how to read she’d know there are studies that prove how effect marriage is. It has been proven not only to be more beneficial to couples in terms of how long they last and economically but also proves to have more of a benefit to children being raised by married parents versus just couples cohabitating. People who think that it’s “just a piece of paper” should really read more about it instead of just bitching about how it’s archaic and stupid.

  • Courtney

    plenty of celebs stay married Blake Edwards & Julie Andrews were married for 41 years when he passed away last december or Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward were married nearly 51 years when he passed away September 26th 2008. so called actresses like Eva Mendes should keep their traps shut when it comes to marriage they’ve probably never seen a strong one in their own lives besides the divorce rate has been over 50% for 35 years. Ms Mendes is a wannabe that never will be unlike Woodward who worked hard for everything she got and gave alot up to have the marriage she had with Newman. Eva is an old 37 where as Joely Richardson is a young 46 granted her mom Vanessa Redgrave doesn’t look 74

  • saaad

    i think she is just bitter coz her bf hasnt proposed to her poor thing haha

  • ronyc

    You don’t need a piece of paper to prove your love and commitment for your partner. Many people are in committed relationships that aren’t married. You can have love, trust and respect in a relationship without being married. Eva M and Cameron D have a right to their opinion. And they are not the only people who feel that. Marriage isn’t for everyone. And I admire both of them for saying so instead of feeding the fairytale that all women want to be married. Its a shame that people can’t express their opinion without others ripping them apart. We do live in America where people have a right to have different opinions.

  • Olivia Munn is desperate

    I agree, marriage is not for everyone. But I don’t like how Eva said it is bad. She could have just said, it’s just not for me.

  • Courtney

    the likes of Ms Mendes aren’t that smart and never will be. if she were ever accepted to Columbia university she’d not attend on purpose or be expelled for doing something stupid. where for example Ms Woodward was accepted in 1958 but didn’t attend that fall because of work obligations and pregnancy with her eldest daughter Nell as she had suffered a miscarriage earlier in the year and was terrified of it happenening again. take into acount that of the 50% of marriages that do last 16.667% or 1/3 of it last 50 years or more like Newman & Woodward’s did. why doesn’t ms Mendes keeep her big fat mouth shut

  • Ladyb

    Ronyc, there’s nothing wrong with saying that marrying is not for you. But to go on and on about uncool or old-fashined bad, or unsexy it is is criticizing people that believe in marriage. This is not the first time that Eva has said bad things about marriage and I’m sure it’s won’t be her last. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie might not be married, but I have never heard them say any bad thing about marriage.

  • Mike

    Eva is right, marriage is bad. Good for her for having the guts to say it.

  • taylor

    Marriage was invented as a way to control women and their property. It IS old fashioned in this day and age. Outdated. You don;t have to be married to be lin love. You don’t have to be married to stick with someone through good times and bad. As a matter of fact, if you can do that without being married, you are worthy of more respect, in my opinion. The only reason to get married in this modern time is so you can take your spouse for every penny they are worth when you get a divorce. Don’t get married, Eva. Love who you love with all of your heart and be better than the people who hate you for your opinion. Rise above it and be the better person. Good on you!

  • Spitwave

    A pup ? Seriously ? People working for JJ should go back to school or wear glasses.. fools

  • Frida

    Marriage is not for everyone, each to their own and Eva is just stating an opinion. To say that she’s bitter and that she feels this way because she’s older or her boyfriend doesn’t want to marry her is just ignorant. People look at life in different ways, just because they won’t marry each other doesn’t mean they don’t love each other, will stay together/ be good parents. A ring doesn’t change anything.

  • Married

    Marriage is a holy union

  • ke$haluv

    marriage is only if you are religious, otherwise it is just some legal papers that will end up in tons of money and lawyer fee’s if it doesn’t work out, it’s a social norm that people need to get over.

  • get a grip


    In your mind, maybe it is a “holy” union but for the bulk of couples out there it is something entered into because society says you are supposed to want to get married and have babies in order to feel fulfilled. Then after the “dream wedding” they wake up to the nightmare that is marriage and then they get divorced.

  • boston61

    What an idiot. That’s because you’re are rich b*tch. For 90% of the population it provides children with the security they need. You stupid a*s.

  • joe

    man there is a lot of ignorant comments on here. Marriage isn’t old fashioned, to make that kind of committement and to take those vows in front of your closest friends and family changes your relationship and how you see each other. It creates a bond that people who just live together don’t have.

    And it’s ignorant to think that no marriage is better than marriage because you are together because you want to be. Being faithful in a marriage and making compromises and supporting each other is an act of love and is something people in marriages choose to do on a daily basis. Sounds like there are a lot of bitter people on this board.

  • susana

    Saying “marriage is old fashioned” is less humiliating than saying George doesn’t want to put a ring on it because he still wants other girls on the side.

  • miriamama

    aw she is so bitter,every woman that says such thing lies and is lonely,bitter and desperate
