Man. Ryan Gosling is still so hot, but to answer my own question of “are we over this yet”, yes, yes we are—or at least I am. Ryan Gosling is forever going to be hot, but I’m just not sure that he warrants a Your Daily Gosling post on Evil Beet any longer, simply just because of the fact that he’s hot. Yeah, he’s hot, but he’s totally off the market with all of this incomprehensible Eva Mendes business, and we’re going to be looking at Ryan Gosling in a few years as a humanitarian-baby-daddy-maybe-husband-award-winning-actor. You know. Kind of like Brad Pitt or George Clooney—one of those of the untouchable type of caliber. Oh how he’s ascended.
And ha. Remember that time that Ryan Gosling broke up with Rachel McAdams because he was all mad that she went mainstream with her movie role choices? Sometimes we grow up so fast, huh?
(Also, this is Ryan, walking with Eva in New York City over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. And that’s about it.)

So we haven’t done a ‘Your Daily Gosling’ in awhile, because while I think he’s still totally hot, he’s become completely boring and off-the-radar, so we haven’t really had much reason to talk about him. Except for now. Ryan did a nice little philanthropic thing over the weekend in heading to the Spooky Skedaddle 5K and Festival at the Texas School for the Deaf in Austin, Texas.
That’s really super nice, and it’s sweet that he generated a lot of publicity for a good thing like a school for the deaf, but he doesn’t really have much else going on. He’s filming a movie *in* Texas, which might give us a clue as to what he was doing near Austin, but the Eva Mendes-pregnancy speculation is still ongoing, and the fact that we haven’t seen really all that much or heard a peep from her is doing nothing to dispel the rumors that she’s carrying a Ryan Gosling fetus in her midsection somewhere. Here’s a recent photo that People caught, and she’s got crazy hair and a baggy zip-front sweatshirt on:
So. Ryan Gosling. See you in a few months, or something.

Oh, Ryan Gosling, I need you now*.
But really, how great is Ryan Gosling in this video? Obviously he’s great all the time, but something about this just touches my heart in extraordinary ways. Probably it’s the “Achy Breaky Heart” bit. And the video of him dancing hilariously. And his equally hilarious denim shirt. And the hope that Ryan still has that passion for singing and dancing inside himself, even after all these years.
*My guinea pig died last night. I tell you guys a lot of personal things, and I know some of you aren’t into that, but I feel upset and detached, and I didn’t want you to think some evil witch stole my soul or anything. I figure a couple of you might actively worry about that.

Allegedly, guys. Ryan Gosling is allegedly shopping for an engagement ring. It’s not real, ok? We can read this story and then climb back into our fantasy world, but it’s not real. It just can’t be. Shhhhh.
From the National Enquirer via Celebitchy:
Wedding bells are finally set to ring for Eva Mendes after Ryan Gosling won a hard-fought campaign to get the marriage-shy sexpot to settle down and start a family. A year into their romance, Ryan has begun shopping for an engagement ring for his 38-year-old lady love, who has long insisted she’s not the marrying kind, say insiders.
“Ryan is head over heels in love with Eva, and he wants to have a life with her – including children,” divulged a friend. But Eva had always wanted to maintain her independence, until she began to hear her biological clock ticking. She’s long yearned to start a family, and even investigated adoption two years ago, disclosed an insider.
“Ryan wants children too, but also believes in marriage and youngsters growing up knowing mommy and daddy are committed to each other,” said the insider.
“It’s something Eva has balked at in the past, but Ryan has a charming way of helping her see a different kind of future. She’s getting on board with the idea of marriage.”
Gosling is “now confident that when he pops the question, Eva will say yes,” added the friend. “They are likely to announce their engagement in October, followed by a summer wedding.”
See, this is from the Enquirer, and it’s one of those stories from the tabloids that are absolutely false and that will never, ever be true. I don’t care how many rumors we hear about these two settling down or how many pictures we see of Eva Mendes looking maybe a little pregnant, it’s just not true.
It’s just … I watched The Notebook again last week, you guys. I watched The Notebook and I remembered why everyone fell in love with Ryan Gosling in the first place and I remembered why he should be with Rachel McAdams forever and I just can’t. I just can’t with all this Eva Mendes nonsense. I can’t.

So, we haven’t had a “Your Daily Gosling” in awhile, primarily because Ryan‘s still with Eva Mendes, who may or may not be in the early stages of pregnancy, and I think people* are getting pretty sick of seeing Ryan and Eva hanging all over one another in public. And I get it. Bo-ring.
But these pictures are from the red carpet event for Ryan and Eva’s movie, The Place Beyond the Pines, where Ryan plays a white trash-kind of guy who fathers a baby with a white trash-kind of girl, who is played by Eva. Ryan also rides motorcycles and has Johnny Depp-Cry Baby tattoos.
Also, Eva Mendes is definitely tweaking her face. But I guess that’s what those who have insecurity issues to begin with do when they’re dating someone almost a decade their junior and trying to pass themselves off as super-special marriage and mother material.
Ryan just looks so, so happy, doesn’t he?
*It’s me, guys. It’s all me.

If we’re being completely honest, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been all about Ryan Gosling. Maybe it’s Eva Mendes, maybe it’s because he hasn’t saved anyone’s life in a while, but I don’t know, I just haven’t been feeling it lately.
That’s all changing though, because Ryan Gosling wrote a script called Catch A Monster, he’s directing the movie, and he cast Christina Hendricks in the leading role, so he’s officially a dreamboat again.
Here’s a brief summary of the film:
Catch a Monster weaves elements of fantasy noir with suspense to create a modern fairy tale set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city. Hendricks (Mad Men) would play Billy, a single mother of two who is swept into a macabre underworld, while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to a underwater town.
They’re shopping the movie around at the Toronto International Film Festival, and they’re not even going to work on it until next spring, but I think I’m going to go ahead and start working on my letter to Ryan Gosling thanking him for making my new favorite movie. Maybe I just have Ryan Gosling-shaped stars in my eyes, but this sounds absolutely wonderful, right?
