So according to Page Six, Ryan Gosling turned into Aggro Jealous Boyfriend on Friday when he was out with Eva Mendes in New York. Apparently a fashion photographer who’d recently worked with Mendes called over to her “Hey, baby!” and an eyewitness says:

“Ryan completely flipped out, and it got heated. Ryan got in the guy’s face and said, ‘Who are you calling baby?’ Eva had to jump in and calm everyone down before it came to fisticuffs. Ryan then made nice and shook the guy’s hand.”

Please. Please let that be an inside joke, a case of Spying Assumption gone wrong because, dude, that is GROSS. Aggro Jealous Boyfriend is gross. Aggro Jealous Boyfriend is not, as Fifty Shades Of Grey would have you believe, sexy or romantic or healthy.

Is Ryan Gosling the Aggro Jealous Boyfriend with the fake Brooklyn accent who takes you to Disneyland?

Or will you find a way to blame her for his behaviour?

The night before, at the premiere of The Place Beyond The Pines, the two kept their distance at the afterparty, probably trying to avoid making their relationship the focus of gossips, the way they were the focus for us gossips at TIFF in September -- click here for a refresher. I’m not sure that’s so much a sign of their end as it is another sign of how weird and determined they are not to be a discussion topic when there’s not much they can do to not be a discussion topic.

The man has become every woman’s favourite blow-up pillow. This will happen no matter who he’s dating, whether or not she has social anxiety disorder.
