Big news, guys. Big, big news, and I’m so pleased to be able to give it to you. Remember how we talked about Eva Mendes just yesterday, an Eva Mendes who was looking all lonesome and stressed and sad and peering at her phone like, willing it to ring ring RING you bastard, why won’t you just return my calls—you know, like all day long yesterday? Well it would appear that the breakup rumors are true, and if the top photo here isn’t enough confirmation, well. Too f-cking bad, I’m outing this relationship as “stick a fork in it, it’s done.” WOOO!
This is Ryan at the ‘Gangster Squad’ premiere, to which he took his mother as his date. His ma. Not Eva Mendes; his mother. I realize that sometimes actors and actresses take their parents to premieres and awards shows and stuff because hey, treat your parents nicely, but I just have this sneaking suspicion that Eva Mendes sat at home crying the whole night last night while wearing the dress she was supposed to rock at the ‘Squad’ premiere, eating bonbons and drinking tequila—worm and all.
Oh, and one last thing: PS, Ryan—I hate your shoes. Shudder.
Update: Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling definitely did not break up.
“My mother’s wearing all my girlfriend’s clothes,” Gosling confirmed to E! News of his mom’s ruched dress, paisley trench and statement necklace. “I’m wearing Eva Mendes,” Donna reiterated, adding, “She let me raid her closet.”
Upon close inspection, we can totally see Mendes’s influence in Donna’s outfit. The short, sexy ruched gray dress is something the actress would totally wear, and we wouldn’t be surprised if we’d spotted her in those classic strappy black sandals before.
Gosling and Mendes, who clicked while filming The Place Beyond the Pines together in 2011, were first spotted holding hands in September of that year on a low-key date at Disneyland. Since then, they’ve taken their romance to New York, Los Angeles, Gosling’s native Canada and Paris, with Mendes first meeting Gosling’s mom on a movie date in N.Y.C. last January.
The stars have managed to remain pretty quiet about their relationship to this point, making Gosling’s use of the word “girlfriend” last night all the more poignant. Tell us: Would you ever lend your partner’s mom your clothes?
Stupid Eva Mendes.
