EVA & RYAN: is it over?

Fol­low­ing Eva’s ab­sence from the Os­cars, ev­ery­one’s talk­ing about the golden cou­ple… in­clud­ing us

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Ryan Gosling and Eva Men­des have al­ways kept their re­la­tion­ship un­der the radar. Af­ter meet­ing on The Place Be­yond The Pines, the pair have re­mained tight-lipped about their ro­mance – and the fam­ily that fol­lowed. So when ru­mours emerged that Eva,42, would be at­tend­ing the Os­cars with Ryan last week, we were ex­cited. But then Ryan at­tended with his sis­ter Mandi in­stead and it sent warn­ing sig­nals through the Look of­fice. Mandi was also her brother’s date for the 2007 Academy Awards, when he was in a re­la­tion­ship with Rachel Mcadams. Just a few months later, it was re­vealed the pair had bro­ken up.

The ‘sib-split’ is a com­mon Hol­ly­wood phe­nom­e­non. Re­mem­ber Emma Stone’s date for the 2015 Os­cars was her brother Spencer? Shortly af­ter, it was re­vealed she’d bro­ken up with An­drew Garfield. So is it over for Ryan and Eva? We’re told that Eva was sup­posed to ap­pear with Ryan, but had a change of heart. ‘Ryan re­ally wanted her to come,’ a pal tells Look. ‘But she backed out on the morn­ing of the show.’

Eva was also a no-show at Jan­uary’s Golden Globes and, ac­cord­ing to our sources, the time they’re spend­ing apart is hav­ing an ef­fect on their re­la­tion­ship. ‘They’re both in­tensely pri­vate peo­ple,’ says our in­sider. ‘But things have been pretty strained re­cently. Ryan’s been away pro­mot­ing La La Land and that’s dif­fi­cult when Eva’s the one run­ning the fam­ily.’

It’s some­thing Ryan ad­dressed in his Globes Best Ac­tor speech, giv­ing us hope that they’ll be able to work it out. ‘While I was singing and danc­ing and play­ing piano, my lady was rais­ing our daugh­ter, preg­nant with our sec­ond,’ he said. ‘If she hadn’t taken all that on so I could have this ex­pe­ri­ence, it would be some­one else up here. So sweet­heart, thank you.’

Still, re­mem­ber when Ben Af­fleck said of mar­riage to Jen Gar­ner: ‘It’s work, but it’s the best kind of work,’ be­fore an­nounc­ing their split just months later? Oh gawd, Ryan and Eva, nooo…

That’s right, hold on to each other, Ryan and Eva!
