Eva Mendes Tells 'Chelsea Lately' Why She'll Never Get Married (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted May 27th 2011 6:15AM
Eva Mendes on 'Chelsea Lately'Actress Eva Mendes has a lot in common with the host of 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!). Apart from sharing a taste for shoes with really super-high heels, both Mendes and Chelsea Handler admit they have an aversion to getting married.

Mendes believes in true love and spiritual unions and all that good stuff, she's just not into having a piece of paper to seal the deal. "We were doing it for land originally. I mean, how unromantic is that?" she asked.

"Well," replied the ever-practical Handler, "if we were doing it for land now I'd probably be more interested."

We're sure Ms. Mendes would have no shortage of willing grooms-to-be lining up if she ever decided to change her mind, but for now she thinks it's much sexier to be able to refer to your "boyfriend" rather than "husband" when you're in your 50s or 60s.

She thinks that the whole wedding business is so O.T.T. and it's not what it should all be about. Again, Handler's in agreement: "People start getting really ugly when they start registering for their own gifts."

To each it's own I say...Marriage isn't for everyone and for others its security blanket. It's the year 2011 let's let people make there own decisions about life, marriage, and family. No needs for judgement

Ya... has anybody considered the kids? I mean people get married to start a family and yeah there is a lot of NECESSARY legal issues that come with kids. Its all about why you get married. Even think about the actual wedding day, friends and family are there to support and celebrate what a couple has. The actual marriage of two people doesn't join their souls but it celebrates it, and enforces it. ( why do you think gay people are fighting to get married?) Sorry to marriage hatters but I like the idea of it and what it means to me.

She struggles over the "institution" of marriage? She can't understand why people get married? She isn't concerned about society's piece of paper (license)? Forget about what she said about land. Here's the real challenge, getting married with God's blessing for better or worse, in sickness and in health till it's time to be called by God! She's not up to the challenge! Too bad. Someone just might want to make an honest woman out of her.

They didn't have paper to signify marriages back in Biblical times, dear.

It's too close to retirement to risk another financial raping.

Lots of women get married for the money, something that I'm sure these two ladies have plenty of.

She hasn't fell in love yet. That's why she doesn't get it. It'll happen sometime. She'll end up getting married.

The concept of marriage today is a scam. It no longer has any legitimate grounding in society due to its manipulations by law makers over the last century.

The institution of marriage can build great wealth over the years. But it is preparing yourself for the great financial downfall the minute that hate seeps into the big picture. So to those who love state approved wedding bells, go for it, and for those who dont, stay far far away. Not all people believe in, "love you until you give me a reason to hate you or kill you". Its a sure thing when you are happy with yourself, and its the right thing when you can be just as happy dating others. Our world today is changing rapidly (dating, employment etc.) and some of our laws are only for financial gain to satisfy the hate which is turning into greed lately. Yet be aware that on some people agenda, marriage is the only thing to do. If you feel unsure about it at any time, it could be a major problem. Cold Feet.

IIRC she once stated she would not consider marriage until gays and lesbians could marry. Let the broad go on in ignorance- we all have a day of reckoning.
