Once upon a time, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling did a little movie called The Notebook together and won the hearts of romantics everywhere as they fell in love on screen… and off! Alas, their love was not to be long term, which is a shame because they make a damn good looking couple and Eva Mendes is kinda weird, but that’s besides the point. Rachel and Ryan have remained friends since their split, and now that Rachel has broken up with Michael Sheen, she’s apparently got Ryan back on her speed dial and has been hitting him up at all hours, much to Eva’s chagrin.
From Now (via DigitalSpy):
“Rachel’s always kept in touch with Ryan, but now that she’s split with Michael, she’s been calling him and using him as a shoulder to cry on.
“It hasn’t gone down very well with Eva, to say the least, but Ryan wants to be there as a friend for his ex.”
I mean, I get it, I guess – if my partner’s ex was calling non-stop, I’d have to say something – or a few choice somethings – to bring an end to it. On the other hand, these are celebrities so I can throw my morality out the window when I say: Rachel + Ryan 4 Ever! Bring back Rychel!

I don’t really care much either way for Eva Mendes, but it’s sort of silly when someone who’s generally known to be beautiful starts spouting off about how beauty is sort of boring and she’s not that into it. Well, isn’t that nice? It’s like someone who’s a size 0 saying it doesn’t matter if you’re fat – well, I would imagine not, since you’re thin! Anyway, I digress. Eva isn’t into vain dudes (TGFG – Thank God for Gosling) and also doesn’t really care much about being sexy on screen, I guess.
From The Sun:
Eva — who stars alongside boyfriend Ryan in The Place Beyond The Pines — finds vain men a turn-off and says: “Beauty can be boring in some ways, especially if you’re with a guy who is focused on his looks all the time.
“I know a lot of actors who are totally obsessed with creating a certain look, whether it’s very polished or very street. I definitely don’t need that in a man. A real man doesn’t fuss about his appearance.”
As for her own undeniable beauty, Eva says: “Sexiness can be great and powerful as long as that’s not all there is to your character or what the director wants to draw out of you for your character.
“Being sexy is just one component of who I am — it’s a thing I can be. It’s a side of myself I can tap into, just like I can tap into my funny side, my quirky side or my dramatic side. It’s not what I am.”
I mean, fair enough. Nothing’s worse than a vain asshole dude (or lady), and it’s not her fault she’s sexy – nothing wrong with that. I do think she’s a bit of a sub-par actress, though. Still, it’s hard to criticize Eva for talking about beauty and how unimportant it is in an industry which insists it’s the most important thing, because it’s exactly the point. No one ever question’s George Clooney‘s career viability (or legitimacy) because he’s also rather dashing. But because she’s a lady, she can’t possibly be anything but sexy. Ay carumba.

If there’s anything I love more than watching all the new movies, it is watching trailers for the movies that hasn’t come out yet. The only downside is that nowadays Hollywood advertises films that are still currently in the making, and wouldn’t be released for at least another ten months or so, and if there’s something I dislike more than waiting to see a movie, it is waiting to see a good movie.
“The Place Beyond the Pines” looks promising – it is character driven, it features our beloved (shirtless!) Ryan Gosling, his beloved Eva Mendes, and my beloved Bradley Cooper, of whom I think ever more highly with every new dramatic role he takes on, and it seems to be about action-spiked moral dilemmas. Plus, a very cute little baby:
And speaking of babies, just another (rather personal) thing – I haven’t been feeling that awesome lately, and after numerous visits to the doctor in the past few days it became clear that I won’t be having a baby this year after all. I am only sharing this because after my booming first post here at Evil Beet, I was receiving congratulatory e-mails from you guys, and although they are very sweet and touching, it is just too much for me. Also, I want to get it out of the way and avoid future awkwardness. So I thank you all and I promise to think lots and lots of positive thoughts. Meanwhile, please take a minute to meet my Shelby. She is a special kind of fluffycat.

Where’s Eva, though? She in the back stuffing her face with convenience store pizza? F-ck no. No, I’ll grudgingly show you where she’s at:
Last. Those motherf-cking pants. Third time in a damn month, and while it would be OK if the pants were actually nice, they’re not. They look like something my five-year-old wears, and while they’re totally cute and adorable on her, they’re not cute or adorable on Eva. Granted, yes, I’m bitter as all get-out when it comes to pretty much anything Eva Mendes does (except for that face … she does have one gorgeous face), but those pants would be poor fashion in motion on anyone short of Betty White.
But yep. Here they are. Together. Drinking Cokes. The third Coke is for Ryan’s personal assistant (not pictured), and not George. Thought you should probably know that.

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.

See this picture of Eva Mendes? It’s the second sad-looking picture that’s come out since New Year’s Eve, and what’s more is the fact that Ryan and Eva didn’t even spend the New Year together. Nope, Eva celebrated the arrival of 2013 all by her lonesome (and even her lonesome is looking pretty damn sad these days, too).
Word on the street is that there’s trouble in paradise, and by “paradise,” I mean “Ryan Gosling’s pants,” because even more reliable sources haven’t seen the couple together in actual weeks, save for some apparent custodial visits of Ryan’s dog, George. Here’s George—and don’t mind Eva’s pants; it would appear that she really likes these pants a lot, because the following photo was actually taken over a month ago:
I feel sad for Eva. … No, really, I do. Can you imagine what it’d feel like to be Ryan Gosling’s steady for a moment in time only to lose him for [insert frivolous reason here]? I’ll bet it kind of feels like some scenes in ‘Titantic’. Namely, the part where Jack Dawson’s hanging off the front of the massive vessel, screaming, “I’m the king of the world!” I’ll bet it probably felt partially like that while they were dating. That all probably felt pretty good. I also bet that it maybe felt like when Rose DeWitt Bukater was watching Jack’s lifeless body float away in the end of the movie, quietly sobbing, “I’ll never let go, Jack. … Never let go.” Probably that, too, because I know if Ryan Gosling left me in a pile of dumped rubble, I’d be writhing and begging and possibly wanting to drown myself, too.
Last, here’s an interview from last year with Ryan and George on the Jimmy Kimmel show that’s actually really, really funny. I laughed out loud—it’s too cute:
