Back in March it was reported that lovebirds Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes broke off their half year relationship. The news came shortly after the couple were spotted canoodling together on location in Thailand where Ryan was filming a movie. Today, we learn that the couple haven’t really broken up at all. Ryan and Eva were photographed this week, hand in hand, strolling the streets of NYC together … looking very much STILL a happy couple.
She attended the annual Met Gala solo this week, increasing speculation of a split with her boyfriend of eight months Ryan Gosling. But Eva Mendes put any and all breakup rumors to rest today as she went on a romantic afternoon stroll with the handsome 31-year-old in New York. After expertly dodging Gosling questions from Ellen Degeneres earlier this week, the 38-year-old actress slightly opened up about her relationship with USA Today. ‘I’m feeling a little insecure because I can’t help but be super conscious of what I’m saying because I’m so protective,’ Eva said, when asked about Ryan. ‘That’s the most precious thing to me. And I’m so protective and I just felt my guard go up.’ Walking hand-in-hand in a strong show of silent solidarity, the acting couple stopped for coffee and Ryan held a bag of Pan Ya Chinese takeout. The pair might have developed a shared love of Asian delicacies in February while staying together in Thailand as Gosling filmed boxing gangster flick Only God Forgives. With her brown hair pulled back in a high ponytail, the Cuban-American actress wore loose navy pants, a red jumper with horizontal piping and yellow buttons, and strappy beige espadrilles. The Canadian Drive star wore grey cuffed jeans, grey worn-in booties, and his long-sleeve teal button-up flattered his sun-kissed skin. Ryan and Eva met on the set of their movie ‘The Place Beyond The Pines,’ which centers on a motorcycle stunt rider who considers committing a crime in order to provide for his wife and child. ‘I play Ryan Gosling’s love interest and his baby mama,’ she said before pausing. ‘There’s the guard going up again a little bit! I’m pushing it down! And through this horrible tragedy, I have to deal with the fact that I now have this child to raise…It basically is this epic family drama that is really beautiful and emotional.’
Now, I know there are quite a few people out there who aren’t happy with this union but I’ve been a fan of Ryan and Eva since the beginning and I’m really glad that they are still going strong. They make a nice match. It’s clear that these two have something very special going on between them. I’m very relieved to hear that reports of their break-up were completely wrong. Here’s hoping they will stay happily together … forever :)
