Eva Mendes tries to get out of her workouts.

The 'Other Guys' actress is so keen to avoid exercising she admits she regularly makes up excuses why she can't attend her personal training sessions.

She said: "My entire day is planned on how can I get out of my workout. Like, if I'm even running five minutes late I will text my [my trainer], I'll be like, 'I'm on the 101, it doesn't look like I'll be getting to you on time.'

"She's like, 'That's OK, I'm here... I don't have anything after you.' And I'm like, 'Ugh! Woman, don't you have other clients? Don't you have to go?'"

The 41-year-old brunette beauty - who recently welcomed six-month-old Esmeralda with partner Ryan Gosling - also admitted she doesn't find exercising "fun" and has accepted the fact she will never be the person who is desperate to get in her daily workouts.

She added to E! News: "I am not the girl who's like, 'Oh yeah, I gotta get my workout in today.' That is not me.

"It's something I accepted quite a few years ago. I was like, 'OK, this has to be part of my life. Just to stay healthy.' But working out, it's not fun. It's not fun. Do you really look forward to it?"
