Eva Mendes feels uncomfortable in jeans.

The ‘Hitch’ actress has confessed she rarely wears the denim wardrobe staple because she finds them too “restrictive” and would only put on a pair if she had no clean clothes left.

The brunette beauty – who has her own clothing line with New York & Company – told fashion website Who What Wear: “I love a soft pant, so I make sure they’re included in every collection. But if you see me in jeans it’s probably because all my skirts are at the dry cleaners or just dirty.

“I mean, I think jeans are really uncomfortable actually – aren’t they? They’re so restrictive!

“I always prefer a boyfriend jean, but I found those to be restrictive, too!”

Eva, 41 – who has six-month-old Esmeralda with her partner Ryan Gosling – also isn’t a fan of sweatpants and recently joked the garments were the number one cause of divorce in the US.

She said: “You can’t do sweatpants… ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!”

Eva also shared the secret behind her slender figure and credits her vegetarian diet for her glowing complexion.

She said: “I realised a long time ago that I needed to have some kind of routine. I don’t love it, but I’ve made peace with that.

“I haven’t eaten meat in about six years, because I don’t agree with factory farming here. This is just what worked for me, it’s important to say, but when I cut that out I immediately felt better. And also, after a year of eliminating it, my skin looked brighter and healthier overall.”
