Eva Mendes is a self-proclaimed "kitchen freak."

Eva Mendes admits that it takes real pleasure from cleaning. During the pandemic, she even became a co-owner of a company that produces cleaning products.

She admits she doesn't usually like cooking, but her partner Ryan Gosling is doing a great job.

"Ryan's the cook. He's an incredible cook," she says."I think that there's a really nice balance to 'you cook, I clean.' And it just works for us."

Mendes admits she's a "control freak about the sink," saying it's therapeutic for her to set up shop in front of the dishes.

"Life is so chaotic. But the one thing I can control is my house, my kitchen. So when I do the dishes it's meditative for me," she tells PEOPLE.
