Ryan Gosling May Have Made A Huge Mistake

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:

Rachel McAdams Has Ryan Gosling On Speed Dial Again

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!

Beautiful Eva Mendes Thinks Beauty Can Be Pretty Boring

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.
