It pains us to admit this: Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes look really, really cute together. Our sexiest man alive was spotted over the weekend in the City of Light visiting his lady — in town filming Holly Motors — for a little love and death.
Death? Yep, the sexy duo went to legendary cemetery Père Lachaise on Saturday afternoon. The so-called City of the Dead is the resting place of a slew of celebrities, including Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf and Oscar Wilde.
“They were holding hands and there was a lot of tenderness between them,” an onlooker told People. The next stop on their macabre tour took them to the Catacombs of Paris, the resting place of nearly six million Parisians.
Their impromptu weekend together was apparently a Thanksgiving surprise for the actress. They met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines earlier this fall and started dating in September. Since then, it’s been pretty intense with car PDA and Disneyland dates.
“Ryan flew out to be with Eva as soon as she wrapped Holly Motors,” a source told US Weekly. “The film was a fairly small production and Eva was good about being focused and without many distractions on set.”
Mendes was reportedly shocked when he showed up. “They were talking all the time so she had no hints that he was coming,” another insider said. “She was really homesick and missed him, even though she practically just left to shoot.”
Okay, all of Gosling’s super sweetness doesn’t make his new relationship any easier to death with. We’d rather he remain single — and shirtless — for us to ogle. However, Mendes seems like a pretty cool chick, so we’ll let it slide… for now.
