UPDATE: Ryan Gosling is not happy.
The internet was a-flutter yesterday with the news that Eva Mendes seemed to think that trackie-dacks might cause a schism in the Gosling-Mendes household. Thankfully Ryan Gosling has since tweeted that it was in fact a big joke. And in doing so, he told the world what he was wearing (racy…).
‘Obviously sweatpants thing was a joke,’ he tweeted. ‘Wearing them now. That’s right, tweeting in sweatpants. Rats! Said too much! You win again Twitter.’
Gosling poked fun at how much angst Sweats-gate caused online, stating, ‘Word to the wise. Don’t joke about sweatpants or North Korea. Real hot button issues. Trust me.’
Mendes joined in on the laugh too, sharing this image on her instagram with the caption, “Dear favorite pair of sweatpants. I was just kidding when I said you’re the #1 cause of divorce. Everyone knows that orange crocs are the #1 cause of divorce. Either way it was a bad joke and feel terrible if you or anyone thought I was serious. Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs.”
