Latina actress Eva Mendes has slammed the notion all woman are "eager to get married" - perpetuated by every man she knows.

The Hitch beauty, 30, believes most men wrongly believe the fairer sex all want to tie knot, especially as she has no plans herself to settle down ever.

Mendes, 30, says of the male misconception, "That we're eager to get married. It's not that way, guys, so get off your high horses.

"A lot of them think we're desperate."

As for getting married, she smirks, "I don't think so. If it ain't broke, why fix it?

"I've been with my boyfriend for a few years now, and our relationship is great.

"I also come from a broken home, which might have some influence on my not tying the knot."
