Us Weekly: Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling don’t live together but ‘there’s no rush’

A week ago, Page Six had an interesting story about Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ relationship and their behavior towards each other at the post-premiere party for The Place Beyond the Pines. Apparently, an acquaintance of Eva’s yelled out “hey baby!” and Ryan proceeded to freak out and get in the guy’s face. Page Six also claimed that Eva and Ryan barely spoke to each other at the party. At this point, now that they’ve been together for more than a year and a half, I’m just not sure if they’re bringing out the best in each other. I feel like Eva is the one pushing this thing to work and Ryan is probably a moody bastard. I don’t know, it’s just a general sense I get and I could totally be wrong. In last week’s Us Weekly (print edition), there was this bizarre story about Ryan and Eva too:

Eva Mendes recently said Ryan Gosling is “your dream costar… he’s amazing.”

The longtime friends have now been dating for more than a year and are “very much in love,” says an insider.

“They don’t shout from the rooftops, but they cherish what they have.”

The duo also don’t see the need to move in together, adds the insider. “There’s no rush. What’s his is hers already, and likewise.”

Mendes has confided to a friend that her special relationship with Gosling’s mom, Donna, is her secret weapon. “Eva says that’s what sealed the deal with Ryan… they’re going to make it.”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

Sketchy? Or just typical tabloid nonsense? Eh. I’ve always thought Eva is leaking information to the tabloids, especially when it’s Us Weekly. And I have no doubt that Eva is in good with Ryan’s mother – I think Ryan’s mom adores Eva. I think Eva played that part beautifully, especially for a mama’s boy like Ryan. But the stuff about how they don’t really live together? You know what that reminded me of? Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel! Justin kept his LA “bachelor pad” until they were married (and he still might have it, come to think about it) and yes, he stayed at Jessica Biel’s place a lot, but he still got to do his dude things (like screw around) in his own space. Some guys are like that – they need/want their own cave. And it seems like Eva is making excuses for it.

    Eh, something has always seemed off about this relationship anyway. I’d be quite surprised if it went the distance.

  2. andy says:

    I love posts on these two. Gosling’s fans hate this woman!! The comments are always amusing.

  3. Monie says:

    I know who her fashion sense reminds me of…Norma Desmond! She dresses way too old and “aging drag queeny” on the red carpet sometimes.

  4. ds says:

    He’s starting to irritate me. I think Drive did it for me; I just can’t watch him anymore. I get this feeling like he’s trying to hard to look like he’s not trying at all. Makes sense? Anyway, it’s a good thing to keep your own place if you can. It’s a good thing to get away from time to time and be alone, with yourself. Sometimes to keep the relationship healthy you need to have some room. But I doubt that’s what they are about. They are so strange. Who knows.

  5. Lulu.T.O. says:

    I think couples move in together way too soon. I see nothing wrong with forgoing cohabitation.

    • Brown says:

      Same here. I’ve been with my boyfriend for 2 1/2 years and we still do not live together and have no plans to (in the forseeable future.) He stays with me a good bit, about 50% of the time, and I enjoy having him there, but I also enjoy my space when he leaves.

      Cohabitation isn’t for everyone. People are quick to assume something must be amiss if couples have been together for a while but still live separately. Sometimes, a girl just needs her space AMIRITE??

      • hoya_chick says:

        YOU ARE RIGHT! I am not a Eva fan by any means but I see nothing wrong with not living with a guy you have been dating for the period they have been together, which to me hasn’t even been that long!

        I live alone and love it. I need my space to do my thing. My guy has a key and comes and goes but it’s very fluid. I wish more women would pace themselves and date, instead of immediately moving in together so quickly. Just because 2 people who are dating don’t live together doesn’t mean they aren’t in a healthy, stable relationship.

      • Liv says:

        But it depends on age, doesn’t it? If you’re 20-30 years old it’s fine to wait, but it’s different with 30-40 years.

        I’m surprised they don’t live together. I probably assumed they would because she’s so famewhorey.

      • Lemony says:

        Absolutely right! I loved my personal space before I was married.
        My cousin has a stupid pattern. She falls in “love” quickly, so she moves in w/ her boyfriends very early in the relationship. The relationships don’t last long; she’s got a new man about every 2 yrs. It’s hard on her two boys now that they’re in school, they’re always moving to another town & starting in another new school.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        @liv – my fiance and I are both 42 and we don’t live together. He stays here a lot, but we don’t live together.

    • gee says:

      here here! People need to do things when it’s right for the couple, not when it’s right for the tabs.

    • Keeks says:

      This! What happened to waiting to move until there’s a bigger commitment involved? I know for sure I wouldn’t want to sacrifice my space unless it was worth it.

  6. Jackie says:

    They get along so well because Eva is just like his mom. She does everything for him. She’s constantly running errands for him. She’s not an equal to him, she caters to what he wants and needs. In return she gets exposure and possibly more movie roles while he gets someone that he doesn’t have to compromoise with and can go about doing his own thing. Hello, his mother dressed in Eva’s clothes for a premiere, if that doesn’t say Oedipus Rex syndrome to anyone, I don’t know what does.

    • Liv says:

      Maybe she’s a bitch too and that’s why they get along so well ;-) Seriously, his mother didn’t like Rachel, did she? And we all agree that Rachel’s a really great woman.

      • Belle says:

        His mom didn’t like Rachel? Interesting. I think Eva and Ryan are a very strange couple… neither seems like the others type, at all. If his mom likes Eva and didn’t like Rachel, I wonder if it is because Eva seems to cater to whatever it is she thinks Ryan wants… including sucking up to his mother? Rachel seems to be a genuinely nice person, but more spirited, and I don’t see her sucking up much to win the approval of someone who doesn’t appreciate her.

      • colleen says:

        Weren’t there some blind items a while back about an actor whose mom kept meddling in his personal life? So much that an engagement was called off? I always thought of Ryan and Rachel for this. I agree, Rachel seems like a nice person, but secure enough in herself not to be bossed around by anybody. However, Eva strikes me as very insecure. She probably did everything she could to impress Ryan’s mom, because this relationship is her only hope at staying relevant in Hollywood.

      • nina says:

        Rachel seems to be nice but we don’t know her personally.

      • Liv says:

        We don’t know anybody personally, or do you? ;-)

    • jess says:

      That’s what I think too. From what I have observed, this seems like a very unequal relationship. We always see her walking his dog, running his errands, getting his coffee, and yet we never see him doing any of these things for her. He wants a woman to cater to him and not question him. That doesn’t sound like a relationship I would want to be in. I’m not a fan of Eva, but it isn’t really fair to her. But I’m guessing she really needs the career boost he’s giving her by doing this. It’s kind of degrading, when you think about it. And she seems like someone who would do it. After seeing videos and reading interviews, she comes off quite desperate, insecure and not very bright, to be honest.

  7. Lem says:

    Idk. I’ve been married for close to 20 years and I just keep thinking if we were to do it again we’d get along much better if we lived next door to each other.
    I love my husband but I want him out of my kitchen.
    living together with all the laundry, the mess, with the dishes and the trash really put a damper on the romantic side of things!

    • Monie says:

      So true! I wish they would realize that getting off their asses and proactively doing some chores and/or just keeping stuff clean is a turn on for some women. When I see my boyfriend’s dirty socks on the living room floor, toe nail clippers left on the coffee table, or see that he still hasn’t cleaned the George Foreman grill after 4 days…I get turned off by him romantically. Weird but never said I wasn’t. LOL

    • Eleonor says:

      I am sooo with you on this. I like to keep the apartement clean, and nice, he is a mess, and doesn’t get why I don’t like dust. For example. I like to read before sleeping and he turns the light off, of course.
      You know what’s funny: when I was a kid I used to see my Grandma and my Grandpa sleeping in two different rooms, and it was strange, I didn’t understand. Now I wish I could do the same :D

    • mercy says:

      LOL! You all are confirming what I’ve heard from quite a few marrieds! Usually the those who have been married awhile, and usually the women. I’m taking notes lol…every house we look at, I will pay close attention to the other housing options available nearby. ;)

      • Lem says:

        Oi if you manage to find two small houses connected perhaps by a tunnel buy that!
        or send me the listing.
        When I was young my parents had many married friends who lived apart. At the time I thought how weird. Now, I think, how brilliant!
        Ftr, it is not entirely about what slobs they are. I don’t really want him around when I do say, a full body mask. The smooth sexy isn’t sexy when you come home to find me naked covered in avocado, honey and sugar (he says it is_ I say get out!) or when my period has me in tears over spilt milk and hemorrhaging like a stuck pig or when I have been sick as a dog (please leave so I can hurl in peace) .
        I want my space as much as I’m sure he does. The longer you are married, the less space you seem to have and the more space I seem to crave! Being girly, sexy and in the mood takes more effort on my part as I age. Tripping over his laundry sitting next to (seriously?) the laundry shute doesn’t help.

      • Lemony says:

        @Lem: Your comment is all kinds of awesome!
        LOL, I am choking on PB & honey sammich! :)

      • StaCat1 says:

        LOL. I used to laugh at the old Bette Davis suggestion of how to make a marriage work- “seperate bedrooms and seperate bathrooms”

        I get it now. HA!

      • Ally8 says:

        The two-houses-side-by-side is apparently the set-up Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have.

        For those with smaller budgets, each spouse should have a room of their own.

  8. mercy says:

    If it works for them, more power to them. I’ve know married couples who have said their ideal living situation would be to have houses next door to each other lol. Familiarity breeds… boredom?

  9. Bee says:

    How long have they been together again? 9 months? A year? I my experience this isnt weird at all most people i know dont move in together that quickly

  10. Pete says:

    I read this interview with Eva the other day. She seems alright. She is very connected to her family and her mother. I dont know why people hate her so much?

  11. Thomas says:

    From a mans point of view Eva is breathtakingly beautiful, bet she is all latino passion and he is a whiny little mommmys boy. Mismatch but not for the reasons his female fans thin. Lol!

    • bella says:

      i enjoy both of them as actors/personalities.

      eva is incredibly beautiful and i see why men find her sexy.

      ryan is sweet, brooding and more wholesome…like a boy next door sexy.

      that’s why i say mismatch.

      given this…i feel that ryan and rachel mcadams were better suited…because she is more of a wholesome beauty as opposed to hot latina sexy…

      i saw an older movie yesterday with ryan and sandra bullock…didn’t they used to date? while she is older than him i think…they are better suited than ryan and eva.

      • Sara says:

        You’re essentially saying they’re not a good match because she’s an exotic beauty. While I don’t find her too beautiful, all of the guys I’ve dated find her gorgeous. I think men have a different conception of beauty than some women do. Also, your comment that Ryan is more ‘wholesome’ is something he’s addressed. He has said that although some of his fans want to mold him into a wholesome, Notebook type, it is far from the truth. He is not wholesome. He is complex, and he prefers exotic beauties. If he wanted to remain with Rachel, he would have. Maybe she wasn’t his type.

    • Belle says:

      LOL… if she is all latino passion then what is she doing with a whiny little mommy’s boy? Worse, what is she doing sucking up to the boy’s mom? Maybe your idea of Eva doesn’t really match the reality? ;)

  12. Patty says:

    I have no opinion on Eva and Ryan’s relationship. What I don’t get is how either one of them is considered hot. Not ugly by any means but I don’t see anything special about their looks either. It would be interesting to see what their offspring would look like though.

  13. linlin says:

    Maybe its her who doesn’t want to move together?

  14. Bonfire Beach says:

    The only thing I have to say about her is that she always wears the best lip color.

  15. RobN says:

    Why does everybody always assume that it’s the woman pushing for more commitment? Why, no matter how successful professionally, do we still judge women by their ability to grab a husband?

    Maybe Eva is perfectly happy with the situation, maybe she isn’t desperate to get a ring. Maybe Eva likes a little freedom and doesn’t want to give it all up.

  16. LAgirl says:

    She’s ok, he’s ok…I lose sleep over neither of them.

  17. hannah says:

    Ryan seems to be displaying all the things I dislike in men. Moodiness, possessiveness, and wanting to be the catered to. I know millions of women are gaga over him, but I honestly think a relationship with him might be quite unpleasant. Maybe not the physical stuff, but emotionally he must be exhausting. Of course I don’t know him, so I can’t say for sure.

  18. lili says:

    She is a good businesswoman. She knows exactly what she is doing.

  19. tgy says:

    If you look closely in Ryans eyes, you can see the twinkle of Rachels face LOL Just Saying.

  20. kit says:

    she needs to control that right eyebrow that is arched in a frightening way. she looks like a vegas show girl (trannie ).

  21. Jayna says:

    Why would they need to be living together? He’s away on location and so is she. Time off they spend together. When did you need to move in with someone by a year, year and a half? It’s not a commitment. You’re not engaged. She has her own home, her own furnishings, her own money. Moving in sometimes is the kiss of death when you do it during the initial hot stages of the romance and all of a sudden it’s just everyday routine. She seems independent and probably what he likes about her.

  22. lisa2 says:

    I’m surprised their relationship is getting that much interest. They are not seen together that much, and when they are it is always very casual and nondescript.

  23. Grace says:

    Ryan is a mama’s boy and his mom will never allow him to marry Eva. Eva needs to find someone new because his Mama probably wants Rachel for him or no one.

  24. Dani says:

    Ryan and Eva are more alike then Ryan and Rachel. People need to let go of that dream. Rachel deserves better than Ryan. Fact.

  25. Jub-Jub says:

    She’s a beauty and it’s great that she’s anti-fur :)

  26. DanaG says:

    Ryan actually lived with Rachel and others so it really isn’t a great sign that he isn’t living with Eva. Isn’t she supposed to still be sharing the same house as her ex? These two just don’t suit each other and Ryan’s mom can like her as much as she wants I don’t think Ryan wants to marry Eva anytime soon. We always see Eva out doing errands but she and Ryan never actually seem to be together. Something is very off about this whole relationship.

  27. xyz says:

    According to twitter, Eva is with Ryan in Detroit right now. She seems to follow him everywhere. She also followed him to Thailand and stayed there the WHOLE time. Lainey said it’s because she’s terrified he’ll stray.
    That doesn’t sound like a very healthy relationship.

  28. lisa says:

    ryan and rachel smell like unfinished business to me

  29. Rachelstein says:

    They seem about as real as robsten. Notice how many stories there’s been now their movie is about to be released…

  30. kelly says:

    Oh she wish to be loved like Gosling LOVES McAadams..
