Eva Mendes lets her kids wear what they want.

The Ghost Rider star - who has Esmeralda, three, and Amada, 22 months, with her partner Ryan Gosling - isn't worried about what her toddlers choose to wear because they "have the right".

She said: "Thank God there's no fashion talk. But I let them wear whatever they want. They have the right ... they want to wear jammies all day or if they want to go in a costume to the market , I let them do that stuff ... I let them win that battle. That's the easy one. I'm trying to get them to eat broccoli. That's the one I want to win. They can wear whatever they want."

And the 44-year-old actress thinks motherhood has made her "care less" but "care more" too.

She added to E! News: "I don't know. I guess I'm still in it. I'm still new to the game. I feel like in a way it makes me care less because it prioritises everything obviously but at the same time it makes me care more.

"Even though I have less time to think about what I'm wearing for my day or how to put something together, I think of it more in a sense of even if I'm not with my kids, I'm always representing them. It's always on my mind. I'm somebody's mother and I need to act accordingly. There's an intense amount of pressure that I feel but it's good pressure."
