Motherhood is a job: Eva
Los Angeles: Actor Eva Mendes says motherhood is like a "job", because she has to use the same skills as a chauffeur, chef, and personal assistant.
The 45-year-old actor has Esmeralda, five, and Amada, three, with her husband Ryan Gosling, and has joked that her kids are "not grateful" for all the work she does, which sees her use the skills of various other occupations, including a chauffeur and a chef, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Nobody told me it was really going to be a job, and a job I would need an incredible amount of skill for. (I'm) a chauffeur, a cook, a personal assistant to an abusive boss. They're not grateful. Any other profession you would need to pass a test, but the only test I had to pass was a pregnancy test. That doesn't seem fair," Mendes said during an appearance on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show'.
