I’m not sure who in the hell started this rumour, but it just goes to show that the press can’t make its mind up, like, ever. First Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have broken up, and now she’s apparently pregnant by him. According to her, neither of those things are true, but we’re talking specifically about the pregnancy claims here.
Eva appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss the “ridiculous” idea that she might be having a baby. Spoiler: she ain’t.
“It’s so ridiculous. It all started because I didn’t want to go through those X-ray scanners at the airport, which are really creepy. They basically see you naked, right. And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it. So I always opt out. I always ask for a personal pat down.”
Huh. I mean, how much radiation are you being exposed to by the 10 seconds you’re in an airport scanner, girl? You’d rather have people putting their actual hands on your bits than to walk through the scanner? Eh, to each her own, I suppose.
Eva was also asked what she’s going to do on Valentine’s Day, and she apparently thinks she’s hilarious, because this was her response:
“I’m not a big Valentine’s Day person. I’ll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook or something.”
HA! HAHA! SO FUNNY! She probably will do that shit, though – I seriously don’t think they’re still together.
Press pause on your DVD of The Notebook and scratch out those hearts you were drawing with “[Your Name] + Ryan Gosling = True Love 4 Eva” on your notebooks, because it turns out all those rumours of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes deciding to call it quits are false! That is, at least according to a rep for Eva, who has everything to gain by trying to keep her ass in the spotlight for SOMETHING.
Ryan and Eva have been doing this dating song and dance for a while now, but they haven’t been seen together in public for a long ass time and it’s been claimed that they decided to split because they have very different views on Hollywood life – basically that Eva wants to get her swerve on in the limelight and Ryan isn’t all that bothered about that showbiz mumbo jumbo.
Despite new reports which claim the couple, who were first romantically linked in September 2011, called it quits over the holidays, Eva’s rep tells E! News the latest breakup reports are just another round of rumors.
Sorry, not buying it – I wanna see the receipts! It’s easy to keep telling the press all is well to keep interest up in paparazzi following her around hoping for a sighting of the pair of them, etc. I mean, look – it’s no one’s business who’s dating whom or any of that bullshit, but don’t try to play dumb, just come clean with it!
Of course, I could be wrong here and they could be totally loved up and unable to get enough of each other… but my money’s on their single status.
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.”
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” starLarry 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.
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.
“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:
Grr. There she is. She’s waiting outside with the dog, George, who is also inseparable from Eva, like his silly, deluded owner.
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.
