Eva Mendes Explains Why She'll Never Marry

Actress Eva Mendes has a lot in common with the host of 'Chelsea Lately.' 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."
