Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes were coupled-up at LAX over the weekend

Thank you for not letting me down on Friday and making that Ryan Gosling-Eva Mendes post one of the most commented-on of the day. Allegedly, Eva Mendes wants to have Gosling’s baby and she’s already gone off of The Pill. These are new photos of Ryan and Eva at LAX over the weekend, headed for a flight out of LA. They walked into LAX separately – sort of. But for the most part, standing in line and going through security checks, they were together. You can see more photos of them here.

What does their body language say to you? And what does this joint “candid” appearance say to you? What it says to me: the occasional photo op in NYC and Paris aside, these two still actively try to avoid being photographed together. But… while they aren’t going to go out of their way to make it easy for the paparazzi, they’re also not too perturbed when they are spotted out together. My theory is still that one of them (cough) wants to be seen as part of a couple while the other person (cough) doesn’t want to famewhore their relationship. I don’t know, though.

Should we also talk about Eva’s fashion? As she gets pap’d more and more these days, I have to say… her casual style is lacking. She’s not like Jennifer Garner, who seems to simply prioritize comfort and “mom clothes”. I get the feeling that Eva really thinks the outfits she puts together are super-cute. And they’re not. These green pants should be destroyed. These pants give her Phantom Fupa.

    Maybe she’s trying to say they’re so solid in their relationship she feels comfortable wearing fugly a** pants around him?

  2. brin says:

    Sorry Eva, that outfit is not super cute.

  3. Nessa says:

    She literally has the worst style ever.

    Their body language says nothing to me.

  4. beyonce's bump says:

    yeeeeeeaaaaaa, they are definitely a legit couple :(

  5. jano1981 says:

    Why would a grown woman walk around holding her hair up to her mouth?? That’s pretty weird. Dumb outfit too.

    • Intercontinental says:

      Oh!! That’s exactly what we were thinking!!

      It’s not a good look, especially with those pants, unless your 6 years old that is and even then you wouldn’t have those shoes on!! You just know your mother would never allow it… and that’s before your sisters, aunties, grannies and uncle joe cobbly all have their say… Just NO!! 😳

  6. Nicole says:

    The pants are fugly for sure, but I would kill for her butt!

  7. I.want.shoes says:

    I have yet to see a picture of them where there is some sort of chemistry between them and they seem genuinely happy to be together.

  8. Marjalane says:

    And the award for most consistant bitchface goes to….EVA MENDEZ!

  9. Eve says:

    My theory is still that one of them (cough) wants to be seen as part of a couple while the other person (cough) doesn’t want to famewhore their relationship. I don’t know, though.

    I think he likes the attention just as much as she does.

    • lucy says:

      You may be right but he doesn’t wear discreet flashy green pants !!! And she’s much more famewhore than him. Remember she’s the one who went working with his dog. There were no paps in Thailand before she came, and HER crew denied they had split. HE has never talked or denied anything about her in interviews. She seems to me very insecure and desesperate , and if the ultimatum is true, it confirms that.

      • Nina says:

        You forgot to mention her daily photo-op at Starbucks.

      • Eve says:

        Lucy, I don’t think Gosling is this super nice guy his PR team (and probably himself) wants everybody to believe he is. I know almost zero about Mendes — but I’ve said this here on Celebitchy and I’m going to say it again: he’s with her because he wants to. If she’s the bitchy famewhore many of you (Gosling fans) say she is and he’s willing to be with her, what does that make him? Do you think he can’t judge her behaviour for himself and see that?

        And if he’s dating her to promote their movie, that makes him a manipulative famewhore just as much as she is. Sorry.

      • lucy says:

        Eve, a little of humour please, I’m not a crazy fan gosling girl, OK ? I perfectly know he’s not really the nice guy his PR crew tried to sell us. Remember he is a Disney product OK ? I was talking about who is the most famewhore. Well, you have Eva Mendes, C-list latin bimbo who made all her career selling her sexappeal and who is very “calculated concerning her career” and Ryan, Disney product and A- list actor thanks his talent, WHO do you think needs more photo ops ?

      • Eve says:

        @ Lucy:

        Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound serious or anything like that. And I didn’t specifically said you’re a crazy Gosling fan.

        I’m just a little tired of the whole “Mendes is a witch, Gosling is a saint” point of view and wanted to put things in perspective — she may be a famewhore (probably is, according to so many accounts), there’s not much more going on in (and for) her career so she’s obviously going to milk this. I mean it’s obvious that she needs this more than he does.

        But Gosling — the more famous, critically acclaimed actor of the two, who technically doesn’t need the photo-ops — is still allowing this whole thing to happen. That’s the point I’m trying to make. She likes the attention? Yes, of course. But he’s either ok with that, or enjoys the attention too (or both).

      • lovey says:

        Personally, I honestly think they both enjoy all this attention.

      • lucy says:

        I have already said and I say it again, the women he dates says a lot about him.(and we don’t know anything about both of them ,right?) And if this relationship is not for real ?! it’s PR suicide, because that ruins his respectable PR image his crew has built.

      • Liv says:

        PR-suicide – good one! :-) And probably true.

      • lucy says:

        Eve, I don’t believe a second this guy dreams or wants to be on the cover of Star magazine or any tabloid. Like I’ve already said, he’s a Disney product and has been formed in this environnement, and I think he perfectly knows since he’s a child who he wants to become : a serious and respected actor . He has worked hard for it, choosing and fighting for his first role “the believer” and then yes he did “the notebook” which brought him fame but it was with Nick Cassavetes. He has always chosen good and difficult roles in indepedant cinema such as Half Nelson, Lars and the real girl, Two Lovers… till doing last year Ides of March, Blue Valentine, Drive and Crazy Stupid love which was the most commercial. He did not choose to make blockbusters. He was at the most famous festival-Cannes- last year with Drive, that’s what an actor dream about, right, and he was at the top. He is an A-list actor and respected for his work, has a good image, so do you really think he dreams to be on the cover of tabloids ? Every actor wants good roles, being respected and get oscars even if they pretend not. I know his private life hasn’t anything to do with his work but hollywood is all about image and this relationship makes him look like a jerk. And I’m not saying he’s a saint at all, that’s the image he has built. About Eva Mendes, I’m like you I hardly knew she existed before she dates him. I remenber having seen the very bad Hitch. I don’t know if she’s a witch or that rude and mean but truth is that she has sold her sexappeal for years and worked hard to become the Bomba Latina.And I don’t find it glorious at all. Noone talked about her before this relationship started. What I have read in interviews is that she wants to become a good and respected actress. So she needs much more all this attention and she has communicated more than him about this relationship, and she dates an A-list actor. Good for her image ? Anyway it’s not for him and he perfectly knows it because he did not went at any award show with her. I’m sorry to be so long, and I love Cinema !

      • julie says:

        I agree with you. He has worked very hard to be where he is. People don’t understand why he would jeopardize that with Eva? There have been so many reports about Eva’s unfriendliness and rudeness to people over the years that it must be how she is. And she sells her sexuality and body in a cheap, vulgar way. She doesn’t come off very intelligent and seems to be completely self absorbed. I know it should not happen, but fans are now turning away because they are sick of seeing him in tabloids regarding his relationship with her. I know the personal life shouldn’t matter, but it plays a big part in how a celebrity is perceived. People are disappointed he is letting her ruin his image. He never used to have these things about him. It is possible in Hollywood to have a good career and not be in a single tabloid. I believe Eva wants attention, and is taking it at Ryan’s expense. He must not know, or is very naive and cannot see that for himself. I hope he sees it soon and puts an end to it, before she completely ruins everything.

      • Eve says:

        @ Lucy:

        I said he either “allowed/was ok with” the photo ops or enjoyed the attention (or both). I never said he needed it or dreamed to be on the cover of magazines like Star.

        Whether it’s a fake relationship for publicity or genuine, he’s a grown ass man and is doing it because he wants to. I don’t believe for a second Mendes has any power over him.

        And just as you said: he’s a former Disney star and is in this business since he was a kid so he must know how these things work, right? So I ask: if she’s so blatantly a famewhore, why isn’t he stopping this? It goes back to my theory: he is ok with it. To me, that says more about him than her.

      • marsha says:

        I have to agree with you, Eve. He’s a 31 year old man capable of thinking for himself and making his own decisions. If he didn’t want all this exposure, he simply wouldn’t be doing it. I still believe he’s a private person and this relationship might be purely strategic on his part. Like you said, he’s been in the business pretty much his whole life, so he must know how things work. He strikes me as quite a smart person and he’s up to something in doing all of this, even if we can’t really figure out what it is right now.

    • D1 says:

      Exactly. It makes me laugh when fangirls rip on an actor’s girlfriend, their reasoning being that she’s not good enough for him and is somehow beneath him.

      Sorry, but who you date says a lot about who you are – birds of a feather flock together. The “Ryan rules!/Eva sucks!” crowd is either not giving her enough credit or they’re giving Gosling too much.

    • bns says:

      Yep. His whole shtick is pretending not to like it. At least he didn’t get all dramatic and put his head inside of his bag this time.

    • kelly says:

      I completely agree with you, Eve. In real life he’s probably far from a prince charming. He’s most likely just as stuck up, egotistical, cunning and manipulative as the rest of them. He’s just really good at fooling people into believing he’s this incredibly nice person who can do no wrong. I know he does charity work and has a decent image, but I really do get douchebag vibes from him that I can’t shake.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      I´m pretty sure he´s much more to blame for this famewhoring situation than she is. She´s no rocket scientist and he basically grew up in hollywank. He´s trying so hard to be not just another goodlooking tanned Hollwood star like Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Chris Hemsworth when it comes to his movies but at the same time he´s doing this photo ops. He wants to play the Hollywank game, but he doesn´t want to be regocnized as the player, so he brings her in.
      Something is just off about him.

    • lucy says:

      Yeh, Eve, he is a grown man, and perfectly knows the PR game, he has lurnt it very young but what he does in his career shows he isn’t a famewhore. That’s why my european brain doesn’t want to understand why he is OK with all this and why he doesn’t seem really bothered with her reputation and the photo ops. He must be really very in love (with his fantasy the Raquel Welch double) or it is the worst PR game ever or the best …And sorry for my very bad english, I know I don’t have enough vocabulary.

  10. Missy says:

    You can’t see in these pictures but the pants have zips at the bottom…….that’s right zips.
    I think she may still be taking drugs

  11. kate says:

    Airports are annoying. Combined with getting stalked by photographers while trying to get through security, id have bitchface too. And I guarantee wouldn’t look as hot as either of them. Eva has great hair. Style is meh, but I always love her sunnies

  12. Sabrine says:

    Who cares? So what she’s wearing green pants. For flying you just throw on the first thing you can drag out of your closet. They don’t gave a rat’s azz how they look for the paps. It’s the right attitude to have when you’re a celebrity and hounded constantly in public.

  13. DanaG says:

    Eva wanted to be photographed I would imagine that is the only reason she would wear those fugly pants. Or she lost a bet. They are like a neon sign saying look at me! So I have no sympathy for her being “hassled” at LAX. It seems to me it’s Eva who is so desperate for people to buy this as a real relationship. Ryan just doesn’t look interested in her I bet he is counting the days till he can dump her!

    • lily says:

      I totally agree with you. When is this thing going to be over?! I would love to see Ryan loved up and happy with someone, but I have not seen any of that with Eva, ever. Even when they are arm in arm or holding hands, it looks forced. I don’t see any warmth.

  14. Nina says:

    They’re both gorgeous but so BORING *yawn*.

    And where is George ??

  15. hairball says:

    Isn’t wearing sunglasses inside a big tip off you’re trying to disguise yourself? Not to mention look ridiculous.

  16. cheerfulgee says:

    It is not the green pants and white tank that are so bad but I believe that Eva must close her eyes when it comes to her accessories. Ugly suede fall season wedgies, a Chico’s look “grandme made it” jacket thing and the blue sunglasses and white purse she has been consistantly wearing for 2 months just aren’t ringing any bells. Of course the pocket liners showing though on the pants aren’t a great touch either. But I must say her new signature move of “hair over the face” seems to be helping a little.

  17. Jackie says:

    Shouldn’t he be ripped to shreds just as much as she is? It’s common knowledge she isn’t a sweetheart. I work in an industry where her name comes up and colleagues that have attended events with her have said she’s a real bitch. She’s rude to people just saying hi to her, rolls her eyes while people are talking to her. Ryan’s now been with her for nearly a year. I doubt Ryan needs a PR relationship for his career or for a movie. So it comes down to what does it say about him if he CHOOSES to be with someone like her? I hope people realize that Mr. Gosling isn’t all apple pie personality but that’s a story for another day.

    • Mina says:

      Ryan has done a real good job of playing up his “aw shucks” persona, when in reality he’s quite cunning and often times cold.

    • jenna says:

      Apparently he didn’t treat Rachel McAdams very well when they were together. I don’t know what happened or what went on, but I heard rumblings of how he was capable of being a real prick sometimes. And I know first hand that Rachel is one of the sweetest people. I had the pleasure of meeting her once, and she couldn’t have been nicer.
      I’m glad she seems to be happy and in love with Michael Sheen now, she deserves it.

    • kit says:

      I agree with you and Eve.
      At first I thought she was hiding her personality but it would come through eventually. We’re almost a year later now and they spend months together in Thailand. Nobody can play charades that long so he must know what she is really like by now. He is a grown man who is perfectly capable of making his own choices. And Eva is that choice (for now).
      Having said that, I am hoping for massive fireworks when it all goes horribly wrong. It could be really entertaining…

    • Peach Dancer says:

      He is not the big box office draw that people think he is. He has critical acclaim for sure, but movies like Drive, Half Nelson, Lars or Blue Valentine are more for the sophisticated movie folks than mainstream audiences. Drive and Ides made only 75M and Crazy Stupid Love only 150M (Cost of making 50M) – not very impressive in Hollywood terms. There are lots of reasons for him/his agents/his PR team to beat the hype drum! I read somewhere that he somehow can’t get young men to come see his films. Maybe the team up with Mendes, who is more liked by males than females is part of that PR strategy. I think he staged A LOT of things last and this year. Someone is trying to shove him into our throats hardcore. Yeah reminds me a lot of Brangelina or even Bennifer too. If his reputation survives such an overkill, don’t know. He is still very talented and is capable of great performances, but going Hollywood unfortunately often (not always) means lack of quality and respectability.

      • Aubra says:

        True he’s not a big draw, but I don’t think he’s box office poison either. He’s not at that status where his name/presence alone could make or break a movie. As for his persona, I don’t get douche from him. I think he’s a go with the flow type dude, and he’s certainly going with the flow of things with Eva. As manipulative and immature as she comes off, she’s a nice peice and that’s good for him. Until she unleashes the crazy publically, he’s gonna slap-n- tap dat azz til til she starts screaming “REDRUM” and her eyes get stuck in the back of her head…he’s just doing what young shorties do! *shrug*

    • mercy says:

      Everyone needs a little pr. The types of movies he favours don’t always do well at the box office.

    • marty says:

      I heard that when they were out and about together in thailand, no one really bothered them, but the odd person still would approach them from time to time. And when they did, they were met by unfriendly death stares from both Eva and Ryan. I believe he is a lot more like her than most people think.

  18. patty says:

    Who does this couple think they are, Brangelina? Parading around with their entourage and big sunglasses on. They want to be seen, no doubt about it. Most of the photos of them together reek of staging, especially the Paris ones. And I have yet to see any kind of chemistry between these two.

  19. amy says:

    Eva is a dishonest person. She has been lying about her age for years. She’s actually 41, as she was on a french tv show, where they had her real age, and she tried to deny it, failing miserably. I wonder if Ryan knows this? Or does he still think she’s 38 like most of the world? If it’s true she went off the pill and didn’t tell Ryan right away, that shows how she really is. She’s also a former addict or might still be. People like that are masters of deception. I have a feeling she’s a really good liar.

  20. kate says:

    why can Brange do it but other celebrities cannot?

    • mercy says:

      Good question. If it’s so bad, why give them a pass? The interest is there, the papps make their livings off of it, so why blame the subjects if they attempt to manage or control it?

    • Peach Dancer says:

      I never liked Pitt nor Angelina. They are all about publicity, hardly ever give good performances in their movies. I like good movies and like to see good acting. I don’t have to like this kind of deception that makes them look like they are relevant culturally or artistically.

  21. scarlett says:

    Why are people ripping them up to shreds? Who cares? Does it really affect any of us who he dates? We honestly don’t know either of them..I mean who they REALLY are as people. Can’t judge someone based on a perception. The reality might be 180 degrees from the perception. I enjoy Ryan’s work for sure but I have no idea who he REALLY is in his private life. That’s fine…that’s his business and it is as it should be. I will still continue to see his movies. He has made too many good movies for me to disregard him for who he dates.

    • Anahata says:

      Thanks. I thought I was taking crazy pills here and need to find my eyeballs now because all these comments have made them roll into the back of my head. Ryan is an amazing actor. I’ll say that. Drive was one of the best movies this year. No sh-t. Done.

  22. bobbi says:

    My problem with Eva is she has made a name for herself by posing nude very frequently and acting like a bimbo. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with being sexy, when it’s tasteful. But she did it in such a cheap, vulgar way. It’s not sending a very good message to young women. They should feel empowered to get ahead and be successful by using their brain, not by taking off their clothes.

    • Aubra says:

      Thing is, I remember her doing an interview for some mag (In Style maybe)and she went on to say how she’s not going to be one of those latinas that is constantly posing in skimpy outfits and dresses and putting out a stereotypical siren persona. She got ripped a new one the following month when the readers wrote letters because the pictorial that accompanied the article had her giving just that…guess she hadn’t learned!

  23. jessica says:

    So Ryan is taking Eva to meet his estranged father and relatives in Canada? What does this mean?! Please don’t tell me there’s an announcement of some kind in the near future. :(

  24. sabrina says:

    I’m sorry, but something is really off with this couple. Gossip bloggers like Lainey and Perez have been shoving this couple down out throats, saying they are sooo in love and happy happy happy. I can’t help but wonder if there is some kind of payment involved. And how does Lainey know what they ate for dinner in Montreal in her “exclusive” article about them today? What these bloggers say and what I see in front of me are contradicting. They don’t look particularly in love or even very happy for that matter. I know it’s not always reliable to judge from photographs, but it’s consistently the same. Something is fishy here, and I know I’m not the only one who thinks so.

    • mercy says:

      Were there tweets? Facebook posts? Sometimes Lainey and other tabs get tips from readers who saw sightings on social media sites, or who claim to have seen themselves. Airport and restaurant sightings are most common. They follow up by contacting the restaurants, who are usually more than happy to oblige in exchange for free publicity.

      I do think Lainey had an in with someone associated with these two when she and her local papps were getting ‘Exclusive’ pics and info about mothers meeting, etc. from Thailand, but this is closer to home and the info isn’t that personal.

      I don’t believe this is a great romance, but consider the reaction if they looked happy or loved up knowing papps were present. The cries of “famewhores!” would increase tenfold.

      • iris says:

        In my humble opinion, that never stopped him from being affectionate with Rachel, whom he looked deeply in love with. I also don’t believe this is a great romance. I could be wrong, but I think they would show more affection regardless if there was cameras around or not. When you are very much in love, (in my experience) you are oblivious to your surroundings and usually only concentrating on each other, not caring who is watching.

      • Anna says:

        I agree. It’s not difficult to get this kind of information. There have been many tweets about celebrity sightings.

    • mercy says:

      And no one thought to call them famewhores because they seemed ‘right’ for each other, and some were probably a little less cynical back then.

      But was that the ‘real’ Ryan? Or was he playing the person he wanted to be, or be seen as by the public? For all we know, Eva may be closer to his real personality than Rachel was.

      Maybe all he wants is a no strings attached ‘partner in crime’ type relationship at this time in his life. If that’s the case, I give him credit for not involving himself with someone who wants more, and not being all cuddles and kisses for the cameras. Eva is on record as saying she doesn’t want marriage or babies, so that takes the pressure off him.

      • iris says:

        You have made some valid points, mercy. We never really know who these people are, unless we know them personally.

      • Peach Dancer says:

        There may be some truth to that, but wouldn’t you believe he would choose some hotter chick than Mendes for his past time fun? The girl hardly stimulating intellectually and look wise she seems to be more like a drunken sailors dream than someone I would like to wake up with every morning. I think they started out as a PR couple and have to keep up this image until the arrangement is up. The simple fact Lainey is involved again with exclusives about their vacation gives it away. From those recent pics at LAX it more looks like duty than a fun trip.

    • anon says:

      They aren’t a real couple. Thats whats up. And thats why it doesn’t look right.

      You’d think people who get paid to act for a living would be better at acting out a fake relationship.

  25. Gene Parmesan says:

    does her hair stink or something? she always smells it

  26. Me says:

    I wish I could look that hot in that hideous outfit she has on.

  27. Mary says:

    This is getting more and more ridiculous! Eva Mendes, well known bitch is playing cute and cool girl and understatement, trying to match Ryan’s cool boy style. But, she looks just like Ryan’s high school teacher. Maybe she is teaching him French, like her dog. Something in their body language is terribly wrong and it just makes no sense. Ryan didn’t accompany her to any recent events, this is like HIDE – and -SEEK and it is just not normal

  28. penelope says:

    god they could not look less interested in eachother if they tried.

  29. Nina says:

    This was posted on Lipstick alley :

    “A couple of my friends ran into him at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin. One of my friends said he was with some chick and they were kissing and hugging the whole time. And she was grabbing at his pants a lot lol. He was filming that weekend. But she said there weren’t movie cameras around when she saw it happening.”

    If it’s true, Ryan has already cheated on Eva…

  30. yo says:

    All I can say is that I’m so sick of seeing Ms. Pissy green pants mean muggin it nonstop! Good grief. With all the PR she’s getting from this staged relationship, you would think that she could occasionally smile. I guess we will see what happens when their movie comes out in Sept… maybe then this showmance will finally come to an end.

  31. fooh says:

    Ms.Mentos will go nuts when they break up (of course it is going to happen, not tomorrow, but sooner or later, third party opinions are usually more objective when it comes to matching) and it is going to be so ugly that she will need to go back to rehab. So she should enjoy whatever she can now, the more infatuated, the uglier the consequences will be, a 38-year old woman(or 41 I dont know) should know this.

  32. Missy says:

    Sooooo they’re on a road trip through Canada to visit all his family and old friends. Well all I can say is, speaking from experience, that there’s nothing like a road trip to really bring out a persons true colours, because your in each others faces 24/7, stuck in car with none of your life’s usual distractions to give you that breathing space. Even easy going fun people with heaps in common would find this situation challenging, but for these to, i think it will be very much make or break. Also adding in the extra pressure of meeting your partners relatives and old friend for the first time, I really don’t think Eva will be able to hold it together for that long, I think this will make the cracks start to show, and the crazy and drama will come out.
    Your a brave man Ryan, I wouldn’t want to be stuck in a car with her for any length of time, Could you imagine her sh-tty taste in music? Uhhh

  33. A says:

    Okay, so while I’m not fan of Eva Mendes, it’s a pet peeve of mine when people go “Oh no, he’s too good for her.” In reality, none of us know who any of these celebs are truly like. Unless their gf/bf gets a bunch of DUIs and doesn’t seem to care, is violent, or racist, who the hell knows what their true personality is like…We can have an opinion, but we don’t know for a fact…My opinion is that Eva is a bitch, and not just because she looks bitchy but because of the multiple rumors and the years of stories about her behavior. But who knows what Ryan really is like? He could be a giant asshole for all we know, and there are some signs that point towards that. What I do like is that he’s dating a woman of color. Seriously, we need some more diverse actresses in the business.

  34. violette says:

    I’m surprised her desperation and neediness hasn’t gotten to Ryan yet. Ever since thailand, I believe she’s been doing everything for him, at his beck and call. Cooking his meals, getting his coffee, doing errands for him, etc. She’s making it so easy for him, and he’s going along with it. Usually with men, this kind of stuff backfires. I guess being clingy worked for Jessica Biel though.

    I don’t think either of them are famewhores. Eva dated her ex for 8-10 years and never spoke a word about it. She seems to be a private person. Just cause they aren’t sticking tongues down eachothers’ throats doesn’t mean their relationship isn’t real. Gosling is fine as heck. They prob have great fun in bed together. Lucky–both of them!
