Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are dating and every time I realize this I am surprised. It’s like when you remember an actor who was in a film you saw a long time ago and think, “Oh wow, that’s right, I totally forgot he was in that.”
They’re also working together. Mr. Gosling is directing his girlfriend in his film How To Catch A Monster that is not based on a Goosebumps book but really should be. And in the words of the Bluth family he might be thinking, “…I’ve made a huge mistake.”
From National Enquirer:
Ryan, 32, is directing his 39-year-old Latina squeeze Eva in his directorial debut, “How To Catch a Monster,” spending the spring filming on location in Detroit. He’s gone out of his way not to give his gorgeous girlfriend any special treatment on the set, but sources say he’s gone overboard.
“Ryan’s been harder on Eva [that’s what she said] than any of the other actors in the film,” said a friend. “He’s ordered multiple takes of her scenes. Eva is going along with it, but she can’t help asking herself, ‘Is he just doing this to show he’s in charge?’
“I think they both realize now it would have been better for Ryan to go it alone on this film, and for Eva to just visit him on the set.”
Back to the first paragraph, gotta love they feel they have to mention that Mendes is “latina” as though that’s her whole identity and she should be categorized. Or like we forgot. Anyway apparently they were going to marry in the fall but that may not happen due to all of this angst. Also, there’s this, my favorite part of this entire story, and out of any other story:
Making matters worse, Ryan’s still convinced Eva has a crush on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David! As we recently reported, Ryan hit the roof after Eva accidentally sent the chrome-domed comic a gushing text – that was meant for someone else.
I’m guessing this was Larry David’s reaction:
