Eva Mendes wants to marry Ryan, and Eva’s now BFFs with Ryan Gosling’s mom

Over the past few months, the tabloids have really been pushing the “Eva Mendes is now BFFs with Ryan Gosling’s mother” stories. Ryan’s mom Donna and Eva have met several times, and according to Eva’s publicist’s tabloid plants, they get along really well. I do suspect that Donna is probably fine with Eva – after all, Ryan brought Eva to his mom’s college graduation, and I don’t think he would have done that without knowing for sure that the two ladies are friendly. Of course, I can’t help but think that Eva might be working the mom to ensure that Ryan stays close. Does that make sense? You know what I mean. Every woman knows what I mean. Is Eva working Donna?

After nine months of dating, Eva Mendes is ready to take things to the next level with beau Ryan Gosling.

“She starting to think about marriage and kids,” says a Mendes pal. “She loves serious relationships, and she wants all of that.”

Luckily, Eva has an ally in Gosling’s mom, Donna, who is just as eager to see her son settle down. “Eva hit it off with Donna immediately,” explains the insider. “Now they text and email all the time!” So, naturally, when the actor went to Ontoario to watch his mom graduate from Brock University on June 6, Mendes was by his side.

Says the pal, “Eva and Donna just get along really, really well.”

THAT is what I mean. Using the mom to get a son to commit. Dropping hints to the mom that grandchildren could be on the way if only Gosling would get it together and just commit. What I come away with is the idea that Eva is playing for keeps – she’s in it to win it. And it wouldn’t surprise me at all if she got pregnant. As for Ryan – he seems fine with it, I guess. I’m not going ascribe “victim of a villainess’s plot” status. He’s a big boy. He knows what he’s doing. Apparently, he just really digs Eva.

    Yeah I can’t see her being a mom. I thought I read somewhere she wasn’t interested in marriage/kids but who knows.

  2. kyle says:

    This couple……both are so….ugh

  3. Marjalane says:

    Call me a cynic, but Ryan’s a hot guy, and he’s going to continue to have hot co-stars, and Mama Gosling isn’t going to be there to remind him not to indulge. I’m sure Eva thinks she’s going to keep him on a short leash, but I don’t see happily ever after for her.

    • amelia says:

      I reckon ryan will bolt once eva gets that little bit older and he realises that people don’t stay hot forever. Is she 41 now? Or 30-wotsit? I’m losing track to be perfectly honest.
      I know Ryan is publicised as essentially being his notebook character and he has a dog so in my book he can’t be all bad. But I’ve always thought there’s something else to him so I wouldn’t put it past him trading in for a younger model, God knows we’ve seen it happen before. Feeling cynical today ^^

    Don’t cave Ryan…there are plenty of girls out there that you can take to Disneyland!

  5. Liv says:

    As if!!

    If his mom really likes her, I’m stumped. Wasn’t she supposed to not get along well with Rachel? I mean even a blind one can see Rachel’s a nice girl and Eva’s not!

  6. Anne says:

    I know next to nothing about Eva. She has been around forever, but no one cared about her until now. She’s getting a lot out of this relationship publicity wise, that’s for sure. I read something the other day that called her A-list. A-list? Errr, what? It’s like Katie Holmes being called A-list. It’s such a joke.

  7. DanaG says:

    Eva doesn’t really have much of a career and most only talk of her hot body marrying Ryan Gosling would be her best career move ever. Not that I think Ryan who looks nothing but miserable with her want’s too. He will dump her as soon as their movie opens and Eva will have to try and hook someone else. She must really have a taste of all this attention a real A lister get’s and a coffee addiction as well by now. Eva has said she doesn’t want children or marriage but she does love publicity and seeing her name in print.

  8. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Kaiser-I love how you say that you wouldn’t be surprised if she gets pregnant. Perfect inflammatory words for the Gosling fan base.
    Yeah I mean…I don’t know if it’s as sinister as her “working” the mom. Don’t we all do things to ingratiate ourselves to our significant other’s momz? It’s not necessarily so manipulative, more just polite social norms.

  9. Peach Dancer says:

    I think Mendes wants to get rid of her bad image, and the more she does mention Gosling’s mom the more she thinks she can improve it. US weekly is a PR camp, right. Why would you talk about private stuff like that in a mag anyway. Although there are pics of the two hugging at Toronto airport, so they may not hate each other. I am not sure though if I would want my son get married to a 10 year older woman, who is an ex coke head and has a stinky attitude.

  10. lena80 says:

    I really do not get the intense dislike for this woman or the scrutinization of her relationship with an ADULT MALE. In my opinion, and based on many comments I have read, I think SOME people, mainly women, are displaying their subconscious prejudices but know better than to come on out and say it, so instead they type things like…He should be with me or she doesn’t “look right” with him. It happens in Fassbender posts as well. I’m on the receiving end of comments like those because I’m Black and my boyfriend of 2 years is White.

    Anyway, I digress,this story sounds ridiculous. What mother wouldn’t pick up on the girlfriend trying to pull the “get in good” with Mom angle? It’s honestly kind of insulting to his mother that people think she may not be intelligent enough to see that if it was happening. Mom’s know a fake and try hard when they see one. They seem happy together, let them be

  11. Colu says:

    I think they make a gorgeous couple.

  12. nina says:

    She’s super hot, she’s in the same field he is professionally, and yet her schedule is such that she is able to actually spend a lot of time with him(she’s relatively successful as an actress, but she doesn’t work that much really). I can see why it works.

    • Peach Dancer says:

      “relatively successful as an actress”

      Right that’s why she gets pappd every day coming out of a Starbucks. No serious actress would do something like this. But Mendes always goes the easiest way, never making an effort to stretch as an actress.
      Typecast using her hooker vibe, flashing her nipples. Even if you don’t care for Gosling, its not that difficult finding Mendes cheap and laughable.

  13. Neelyo says:

    Landing Gosling would be a great career move for her. If she were Mrs. Gosling, perhaps some of his credibility would rub off on her. Career-wise, she’s just the Latina version of Amanda Peet.

    I’m dating myself here but does anyone remember Silly Putty? Remember how you could stick it to a newspaper and the print would come off and then you could stretch the putty to make the photo imprint do all sorts of wonky things. Well Mendes has always reminded me of a Silly Putty imprint of Cindy Crawford that someone’s stretched all out of proportion. Long winded explanation, sorry.

    • Lizbet says:

      It WOULD be a great career move… but she has been so incredibly vocal about not being the marrying type, not wanting children, etc.

      I be that the greatness of the career move might make her change her tune and start saying things like, “Well, when the right person comes along, you start rethinking things…”

  14. Missy says:

    I think Dona is probably just a good mother, and like all good mothers, if your kid is happy with who they are with, then you have to keep your mouth shut no matter what you really think of them and hope you’ve raised them well enough to make the right choices…….but I’m sure a nice, down to earth woman like Dona is probably not to pleased that her only son is with a Hollywood sex pot 10 years older then him.

    • Marjalane says:

      So true! My son’s very first “serious” girlfriend was such an obnoxious little twit. Very pretty, very manipulative, and I learned fast to keep my mouth shut about my opinion. It took about a year and a half for him to tire of her attitude, and then after they broke up, he was all, “so why didn’t you tell me you didn’t like her?!”

      • Tiffany27 says:

        My brother once dated a really, really awful girl both me and my mother didn’t like and when we tried to tell him we had bad feelings about her he wouldn’t listen. Now she is currently serving 7 years in prison for some assault charges and my brother is happily single. It’s not just mamas who worry about the sons lol.

      • Lizbet says:

        Kudos to you for being a good mother! And it’s not just worries about the guys, either; I had an awful ex-boyfriend who was just a horrible person and (being 20 and in love) I couldn’t see it. It ended, of course, but my parents’ constant disapproval really drove a wedge between us that our relationship still hasn’t fully healed over.

  15. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Personally, I think that top pic speaks for itself. She’s all into him. He, into her? Not so much.

  16. Sabrine says:

    I doubt she wants the ring, the kids. She likes it just how it is. Ryan is also happy with their relationship and especially since she’s not pressuring him for a commitment. It’s obviously mutually satisfying to them both, in the here and now.

  17. Azurea says:

    I’m lucky, I guess. Never had to deal with mothers…they were either dead or so far away I never met them. Although now I’m dealing with adult kids — lots of ‘em — who are NUTSO, including a daddy’s girl. Not a good situation!

  18. pinchofsalt says:

    If this is true, my year is ruined!

  19. Jackie says:

    What happened to his sister Mandi? She used to hang out with him all the time. They often attended events together with their mom, but she hasn’t been seen with him in a while, and it seems weird that she’s missed big moments in her mother’s life too considering how tight knit the trio were.

    I find it hard to believe Donna is a big fan of Eva’s, considering how jealous she used to be of Rachel and how much her son adored her. Apparently talked him out of marrying her and meddled hard in that relationship, to the point Rachel gave up – is what I’ve been told.

  20. Anne says:

    I don’t care about this couple anymore. I used to be jealous, but not anymore. I’m actually pretty sick of all the exposure they get, especially Eva. Do you know she’s been papped pretty much every single day now? You’d be very naive if you don’t think she’s trying to get some serious PR from all of this. I assume Ryan’s ok with it all, otherwise he would have broke up with her a long time ago. It’s disappointing, because he never used to play the game. I guess now it’s different.

  21. iris says:

    What’s with Eva acting all domestic and sh*t all of a sudden? She said before she wasn’t a domestic type at all. I mean, she’s now learning to cook, fetching Ryan is coffee everyday, buying pie plates, wearing maternity clothes (probably to get people talking)? She is really really trying to work this angle. I think most men would sense her desperation/neediness and run! As much as Eva wants it, I don’t know if she’s the one Ryan will settle down with. I’d be very surprised if he did, actually. He did surprise me by staying with her this long, so I don’t know.

  22. joey says:

    She’s a known diva and b*tch, and he’s an immature manchild with issues. Good luck to them.

  23. anon says:

    I wonder if she’s still into the coke? I know she went to rehab, but it was rumoured she never finished the treatment. And Ryan always looks like he’s high on something. I’m sorry, but he does.

    • angelica says:

      There was a blind item back in 2008 I think, where he was the popular guess. It was about this actor who had such a bad coke problem, he had to get the inside of his nose surgically repaired. He also had to go to rehab in order to get acting work again, because he was unable to be insured. All the timelines fit with what was going on with Ryan at that time. He seemed to have all these projects lined up, then all of a sudden he fell off the radar for a while. It seemed to begin when he got dropped from the “Lovely Bones.”

  24. dusty says:

    I still think this is mostly a showmance for publicity. Maybe they are physically hooking up as well, but I don’t see any love between them. And all these leaks of personal information to US magazine are a big factor. Of course they are going to say Ryan’s mom loves Eva and they are the best of friends. They are really trying to get people to believe in it. When people don’t believe in a celebrity couple, they always bring in the family, because that way how could it not be a showmance? Very manipulative, the media is. I will only believe they are a completely legit and in love couple if they stay together well beyond the movie’s premiere.

  25. marcy says:

    There’s a rumour that Eva is not allowing Ryan to take the part of Christian Grey in “50 Shades of Grey” because she thinks the film is too erotic. She has jealousy issues methinks. The man is p*ssywhipped if he’s now letting her make career decisions for him. Also, isn’t it funny that this is the same woman who did all those erotic photoshoots in very vulgar poses?

  26. cheerfulgee says:

    Whatevs to the King and Queen of the Sourpuss.
    [Note to lurking Mendes pr people: I must say Ms Mendes looked super smashing the other day: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2159033/Eva-Mendes-legs-petrol-station-pumps-gas-short-dress.html?ito=feeds-newsxml. I think the Garanimals approach to fashion really works for her! Please keep it up....please...]

  27. lily says:

    Unfortunately, I think there will continue to be many rumours of marriage, babies, etc for the next year or so. At least until this movie they did together comes out. Eva’s PR team is relentless.

  28. megs says:

    Eva has spoken out publicly a few times about never wanting to get married. She believes it is an antiquated tradition. So I call BS. I remember her saying it not too long ago on Chelsea Lately too.

    • diana says:

      Yes, I remember that too. She said she thinks marriage is old and archaic. Also that it doesn’t fit into her world today. I don’t know if she would change her mind that quickly, if she was so strongly opposed to it in the past.

  29. Helvetica says:

    Why all the Eva hate? I don’t get it.

    Eva has said a million times she doesn’t believe in marriage. So I don’t get why the tabloids keep trying to make this story up.

    If Ryan weren’t into her, he wouldn’t be dating her. It’s clear they both really like eachther. And they are both hot as heck.

  30. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Hold the phone. Wasnt this chick very VERY VERY vocal about NEVER wanting kids, marriage etc etc??? Now the sudden change? I dont get it.

  31. Crackberry says:

    I don’t think ive ever seen any of her movies.

  32. Leigh cook says:

    I never thought l would see Ryan end up Benniffer Mark #2
    He’s really overdone the PR in a big way.
    I think he will end up just end up a big joke..

    • JJ says:

      I think it’s already happening. People are starting to not take him as seriously anymore, after all this terrible PR exposure, thanks to his attention seeking girlfriend, who has been papped every single day lately. And all the memes, crime stopping, hey girl crap doesn’t help. He doesn’t look very good in that Gangster Squad trailer, he’s talking in a really stupid weeny voice. He will become a laughing stock in the future. It’s too bad he decided to go hollywood.

  33. Kinsei says:

    maybe they get along with each other because Eva is almost the same age as Ryans mom :D DD haha
