From the outside, it seems as though things between Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes might not be going so well. In fact, the couple hasn’t been photographed together since November, and that’s a long time for them to successfully avoid paparazzi (and events) if they are still dating. So what’s going on? Are they still together or not?
According to People, Eva left Ryan to attend the Cannes Film Festival screening of Lost River — a movie she stars in with him — without her this week, consequently also leaving him to deal with the terrible reviews his directorial debut has gotten him. Instead, Ryan took another co-star, Christina Hendricks, to the premiere.
But then, there’s other evidence suggesting that the couple is still holding strong. Why else would Ryan wear a necklace with the name of Eva’s dog, Hugo, on it? And back in February, Ryan was spotted at Eva’s Hollywood Hills home. So clearly, the lines of communication aren’t totally cut if they’re not together.
Still, we worry. Is everything okay, you two? Hollywood romances can be fickle, but after three years of relationship success, we thought for sure Eva and Ryan had it right.
But a breakup wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. And, of course, should Ryan find himself single? He will, unquestionably, have no trouble finding a new flame… should he want one.
