Eva Mendes thinks her mum's criticism is "the sweetest thing in the world."
The 38-year-old actress graced the red carpet of the glamorous Met Gala in New York City Monday.
Eva's mother always has a lot to say about what the star wears.
"She sends me these e-mails whenever I go to an event, wherever I am in the world," Eva told USA Today. "I think she has on Google alert, which I've asked her a million times to please take me off that thing. And then she'll write me 'Mom's Review.' It's the sweetest thing in the world."
Eva's mother is particularly critical of the stunning actress' makeup.
"She'll be like, 'Evie, your hair up looks so elegant and beautiful, but why can't you just wear a red lip?' " she laughed.
Eva enjoys her downtime when she isn't dressing up in lavish gowns, filming movies, or fulfilling other professional obligations.
The star considers domestic chores a favourite pastime.
"I love cleaning my house," Eva gushed. "It's so fun. I take such joy in keeping a clean house. I'll check into a hotel and I'll clean the room."
