Ryan wears shades, Eva’s in spots
Ryan Gosling and girlfriend Eva Mendes were in New York for the weekend to promote The Place Beyond The Pines. He wore shades. She was in a red spotted dress. They left the hotel separately for the press conference. This does not mean you should start doing gymnastics with your imagination about them breaking up. They were together at Guy Oseary’s post-Oscar party a couple of weeks ago holding hands. Eva just turned 39 last week. It was her second birthday; they’ve now each celebrated two birthdays in the relationship which started, of course, on the set of this film, opening in New York and LA on March 29th and then wide a couple of weeks later.
The Place Beyond The Pines received mixed reviews coming out of TIFF. Some critics were all over it, calling prematurely for awards contention. Others thought Derek Cianfrance, in his follow-up to Blue Valentine, delivered a rather amateur effort. But you cannot deny the cast. In addition to Gosling and Mendes, there’s Bradley Cooper for the first time since his Oscar-nominated performance in Silver Linings Playbook. And also the always excellent Ben Mendelsohn who married my girl-crush Emma Forrest (Your Voice In My Head) and they’re expecting a baby. And Dane DeHaan who everyone keeps calling The Next. And Rose Byrne. And Ray Liotta. And Bruce Greenwood.
Mostly though, you’ll just be seeing it to creep on what Gosling and Mendes are actually like together: Undoubtedly, unquestionably hot.
