Eva Mendes has revealed she was once fired from her job at a hotdog stand.

‘Oh god, this is bad too… I was a Secret Santa and I gave an inappropriate gift.’
When hosts Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw asked what the gift was, she refused to answer, saying she’s already said too much.
‘I’m giving you guys way too much right now. You’re like, literally this is the end of my day,’ she said.
‘But the good thing about getting fired is you get to collect unemployment [benefits].’

Eva is currently Down Under with her long-time partner Ryan Gosling, who has been filming The Fall Guy in Sydney.
The stunner has been busy promoting McHappy Day, which was on Saturday.
The Hitch star recently accidentally confirmed rumours she’s secretly married to her partner of 11 years, Ryan Gosling.
The Fast and Furious star made an appearance on Channel Nine’s Today show on Friday to discuss her charity work in Australia while her partner of 11 years films his latest movie The Fall Guy.

During the interview, Eva referred to Ryan, 42, as her ‘husband’ while she discussed their time Down Under.
‘Everyone is so welcoming here and my husband Ryan is here and we are having the best time,’ she told hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon.
Eva’s offhand remark sent social media into a frenzy as it appears to confirm rumours she had eloped with her long-time boyfriend.
One fan took to Instagram to say they were thrilled the marriage was ‘finally confirmed’ while others were quick to post their well wishes.
Eva also sent social media into a meltdown when she shared a stunning snap of herself holding her arm up to show off the inking on her inner wrist.
Many believe the body art is an indication that notoriously private Eva married the hunky star as in Hispanic culture, married women will often add their husband’s name to their own using ‘de’ which means ‘of’ in English.
This is done in order to separate the two names so if this was the case, the talented actress would go by Eva Mendes de Gosling if she has in fact tied the knot the Oscar nominee.
The Training Day star has been in a relationship with Ryan since 2011 and they share two daughters, Esmerelda, eight, and Amada, six.
The actress sparked rumours marriage rumours when she shared a photo of her ‘de gosling’ wrist tattoo earlier this week
The good looking duo began dating September 2011 after working together on the film The Place Beyond The Pines; seen in the film
