Actress Eva Mendes says she has no intentions on marrying anytime soon. Appearing on Chelsea Lately last week, the 37-year-old Latin bombshell discussed marriage and just how unsexy she thinks it is, saying, “it’s a very old fashioned, archaic kind of thing. We did it for land originally. How unromantic is that?” She goes on to say, “I think husband and wife, they’re very unsexy words.”


It would be interesting to know what her current boyfriend of nine years, Peruvian filmmaker George Augusto thinks of this. It may not matter, as long as Mendes continues to “love the idea of a union,” which she tells the host she does.


Ironically, the Fast Five actress just directed her first film, a romantic comedy film short called California Romanza, which is currently in select theaters. Marriage or no marriage, Mendes may still be a romantic at heart.
