Where Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes' romance began
They play on-screen love interests, but when did Ryan Gosling start romancing Eva Mendes in real life? Here’s a romantic rewind of Ryan and Eva's relationship.
Although the two had met briefly before filming, they spent weeks together while filming Pines in Schenectady, New York, two summers ago. Ryan and Eva play love interests in the movie who have a child together (although Eva has said she doesn't want children in real life). If you thought Ryan couldn't get any more dreamy, just wait until you see him cuddling a baby on the big screen!
It wasn't long before Eva and Ryan were spotted spending quality time together off-camera. One of their very first public dates together was when they hit up Disneyland in Anaheim, California, back in September 2011. Then, the couple took a Thanksgiving trip to Paris and strolled the catacombs together. Eva even met Ryan's mom back in January 2012 and attended her college graduation with Ryan in June, so it looks like they're serious.
Despite the fact that their movie hits theaters Friday, the twosome has been careful to keep a low profile, even while promoting the film. During the NYC junket for Pines, Eva and Ryan did a very limited number of interviews separately, and left the hotel separately afterwards to avoid being photographed together. And during a recent interview, Eva has said she wants paparazzi protection for her and Ryan's dogs!
So while we may not see a ton of PDA pics of them in public, you can watch them together on the big screen in A Place Beyond the Pines, which hits theaters March 29.
