Eva Mendes may not be pregnant — or split up from boyfriend Ryan Gosling — but a lot of people sure seem to think so. When Eva stopped by The Ellen Show this week, she took the opportunity to clear up the rumors and explain how she thinks they might have started.
First, Eva talked about her Valentine’s Day plans — which presumably will involve Ryan, since the rumors that they’re no longer together have recently been shut down by her publicist.
”I’ll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook,” she said. Us, too, except our night won’t include a live performance by Ryan Gosling himself.
And then, she addressed pregnancy rumors — and revealed that they are 100% false.
“This is ridiculous,” the 39-year-old actress said. “It all started because I didn’t want to go through scanners at the airport. You know those X-Ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked. And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it. So I always opt out. I always ask for a personal pat down.”
Okay, that actually is ridiculous. Plenty of people opt out of the body scan for exactly those reasons every day — and more often than not, it has nothing to do with being pregnant.
“I never do go through the scanners,” Eva said. “But that was good enough reason [to suspect a pregnancy].”
Poor Eva. Good thing she has her beautiful, beautiful boyfriend to console her after dealing with such crazy rumors. And if Eva and Ryan ever did decide to have children, they would be so gorgeous that the rest of us shouldn’t even bother trying.
