Eva Mendes is ‘extremely nervous’ Ryan Gosling will go back to Rachel McAdams

Eva Mendes seems like the kind of woman who publicly stakes claim to what she feels belongs to her. She seems like an alpha-female, especially about men. I’m not saying she’s a maneater or anything, just that she’s… protective. Territorial. Hardcore. There was a story last year about Eva stone-cold icing of one of Ryan’s overzealous Hey Girls – the girl was stroking Ryan and flirting with him and Eva was all “Keep your hands to yourself, little girl, lest I reveal my Slut Shank of Doom.” Well keep that in mind with this story from Star which probably isn’t true at all but I want it to be true because YES, it would so much fun. You know how Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen just broke up? And you know how most of Ryan’s fan-girls would be really happy if he dumped Eva and went running back to Rachel? Well, Eva decided to go on offense and good God, don’t let me ever get on Eva’s bad side.

While fans of The Notebook still hope that former couple Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams will reunite in real life, Ryan’s current girlfriend, Eva Mendes, is definitely not on the Noah and Allie bandwagon.

Eva, 39, who met Ryan, 32, on the set of their new movie The Place Beyond the Pines, can’t shake the fear that her boyfriend might still have feelings for his former flame – especially now that Rachel is newly single following her split from Michael Sheen.

“Eva sent a polite word to Rachel’s team that she’s glad Ryan is of some comfort to her, but the message was loud and clear: ‘Back Off’,” says an insider. “She’s extremely nervous.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Ha, we don’t even know if Rachel and Ryan have even spoken in months or even years. But Eva heard about Rachel’s breakup and she was all “I’m going to shut this down before it even BEGINS.” So while Rachel is probably still dealing with residual Michael Sheen emotions, she gets “word” that Ryan’s girlfriend is on the g—damn warpath. Yeah. That was sort of a brilliant play by Eva. That would scare me off. But maybe that move will spur Rachel on… maybe she’ll be like, “Huh, that’s the way you want to play it? We’ll see, bitch. We’ll see.” Eva is like a Disney villainess these days. Eva Mendes: Shutting Bitches Down Since 2002.

    …and I’m extremely happy (if it were true).

  2. yas says:

    Ugh. Her style is the worst. The pieces separately are fine, but together? UUUUGGGGHHHH where are her eyes?

  3. Lottie says:

    He looked so much more happy and relaxed with Rachel….

    • Liv says:

      At least his relationship with Rachel seemed to be sincere. Still can’t believe that his “thing” with Eva is a real relationship. I mean I don’t believe they are faking it for nearly two years now, but something’s off there – plus she always calls the paps.

  4. Danielle says:

    While I don’t really buy the story. Ryan and Rachel still have a lot of mutual friends. They have also always talked fondly of each other since their breakup, so I guess anything is possible. What I do buy is that Eva is possessive and would go ape shit if there was a chance of it happening.

  5. marie says:

    so is this the budget-man’s triangle?

    if I’m being honest though, I like him better with Rachel.

  6. Diana says:

    Ugh, am I the only one who thinks they make a weird, mismatched couple? He seems like he’d be into the Zooey Deschanels of the world, while I fully expected her to rip a page out of the Salma Hayek handbook and date older, wordly billionaires.

    They don’t just seem to fit. And they’re kinda boring too. IMO.

  7. Abby says:

    HAHA. This story kind of makes my morning. I’m sure it’s all crap, but it would be really funny if it was true.


    sorry. My teenage self had a moment.

  8. Dinah says:


    Can I just say how much I loathe and detest the boots and dress together??

    Ultimate fug. Ulti-fug.

    /end rant.

  9. ThatGirl says:

    Isn’t that the perfect recipe to stir up some drama?

  10. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    Can someone educate me…. Who is this guy? There seem to be a lot of bland interchangeable young American actors these days named Ryan or Channing or Chandler. I get them confused.

    • Abby says:

      Go look at his IMDB. He has a lot of interesting movies–not all the same at all. He’s not just a beefcake. I think he’s kind of weird looking in photos, but I love him on screen and he’s awesome in interviews.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      He was a cute mouseketeer Then he did The Notebook and girls ever swooned. His work since has been all over the board. He’s hot, not too into the hollywood life, and seems sweet. that’s what separates him for other actors.
      there was also that Youtube video of him where 2 guys were fighting and he settled it. The shirt he wore was bad and he later had to defend it saying it was free swag from a party.

    • bettyrose says:

      @ Bored – I never knew who he was before this site either, and I rarely click on posts about him. Actually, I only came here to comment that if there’s any truth to this, I don’t get why she’d be with a man who makes her this insecure. What’s the point?

    • Mazunte says:

      He’s an interesting actor and his interviews can be funny.

      It is really worth checking some of his movies out. Some are pretty good. My favorites: Half Nelson (love, love this one), Drive, Blue Valentine, Lars and the Real Girl and The Believer.

      Not that good but worth for a laugh, Crazy, Stupid, Love, or if you feel like a cheesy, brainless and romantic evening, The Notebook.

      I think his movies for 2013, The Place Beyond the Pines, Only God Forgives and the Terrence Malick one, seem pretty promising.

      I personally love his band’s music, Dead Man’s Bones. This remix is one of sexiest dance songs ever.


  11. epiphany says:

    Didn’t Ryan just announce he’s taking a break from acting? And Rachel is now available? Hmmmm, what will he do with all that free time, I wonder….

  12. bea says:

    I get a tranny vibe off of Eva.

  13. Ranunculus says:

    Rachel McAdams always makes me mad, because she seems to be a classy girl but throws her career away on stupid movies … like the Notebook, that Vow stinker and those god awful Sherlock movies.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I agree…it’s a shame that her career standouts are ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘The Notebook’ ..I think she is capable of more than that…including the Time Traveler’s Wife, The Vow, Morning Glory… all of those sucked. HOWEVER – I really liked ‘Midnight in Paris’ and her role in ‘Wedding Crashers’ so she has had a couple, but still. I kind feel this way about (her costar from WC), Isla Fisher. Great talent, not great projects.

      • littlestar says:

        Midnight in Paris was a wonderful movie and McAdams was pretty good in it (but too bad it’s a Woody Allen movie though lol).

      • TG says:

        I agree too. I adore Rachel McAdams and loved her in Midnight in Paris and everyone in that movie in fact. I hated the Notebook. Don’t know what is so romantic about getting old and forgetting who your partner is. I will never watch or read anything involving Nicholas Sparks. This guy writes the sappiest cheesiest stories of all time. His movies belong on Lifetime or some other dumb channel. But, definitely not in the theatre. Creating drama for drama’s sake is cheesey. It reminds me of country music singers who talk about Jesus or concrete angel other traditional country themes just to sell an album when it doesn’t ring true. It stinks of fraud and how others don’t see that is beyond me.

      • Liv says:

        Are you kidding, I LOVE the Time Traveler’s Wife! ;-)

        I really like her films, but she needs a blockbuster to stand out to the masses. Wasn’t she considered to be the love interest in Captain America but turned it down?

  14. GoodCapon says:

    Hmm I think the McGosling ship has well and truly sailed.

  15. annabelle says:

    Hey girl,

    Slow yo’ roll.
    We’re cool. There’s no need to get your Vicky’s Secrets all in a twist.
    I don’t go backwards, baby. The past stays in the past.
    Have I told you look beautiful in that 70s frock?

  16. oliveo says:

    Does anyone else remember the “Best Kiss” kiss at the MTV Movie Awards? Gets me every time. EVERY TIME.


  17. Amy says:

    I Love Eva! When she put on that turban and start Shutting Bitches Down !!!! Ha Ha

  18. Obviously Eva Mendez never got that memo where it clearly explains that blatant (publicized) crazy girlness will generally get you cheated on or dumped.

    Doesn’t she have a movie to make or a makeup commercial? Maybe if she could get her confidence and priorities together, she could actually make that transition from B to A list celebrity. Seriously, what does she have to be insecure about? Grow up, Eva Mendez.

  19. Jackie says:

    Not a coincidence at all that Ryan and Eva have a movie to promote right? All of sudden they(or their team) need to put their relationship in the press by mentioning the ex he had his most famous(as well as most popular) relationship with.

  20. als says:

    There’s no smoke without fire!
    True or fake, Ryan Gosling was more likeable before Eva Mendes.
    Good thing he’s taking a break. I like him in some movies, but these rumors that keep popping up about his love, Eva, are blah and they can’t all be baseless.

    “Eva Mendes: Shutting Bitches Down Since 2002″ – wonder what bitch will shut her up…I’m guessing in her case it won’t be a bitch, a man will shut her up – someone with more balls than Gosling.

  21. Hoya_chick says:

    This whole story made me chuckle! I love the pictures you used! She even looks like an evil Disney villain in that turban and that terrible outfit in the header.

    I really don’t believe this story. Because if it were true, it would show how incredibly insecure and threatened Eva is by Rachel even after all this time. And two, I really think the Ryan and Rachel moment passed. People need to let it go. Lol.

  22. minime says:

    Real genuine question: why is it that Eva Mendes brings up so much hate?

    I mean she is not a great actress but she is also not a “always in your face” type of celebrity (IMO) and she seems to be only talked about because of her relation and because of supposely being a b*tch…I have no bad feelings for her, she seems nice..but maybe there is some story that escaped to me??

  23. DorothyZbornak says:

    Eva, I don’t think you want to eff with Regina George.

  24. serena says:

    Omg, totally didn’t know she’s 39. She really looks like a newly 30 years old.
    I like that Eva is a badass, even playing the villain she’s cool.

  25. ChocolateFreak says:

    Interesting. I like them all. I think that Eva’s possessiveness may rub him the wrong way – I believe it is her always calling the paps (“look, we’re together, he’s mine, back off bitches”). I wish them well, but God I know how tiresome it is to be with someone insecure.

  26. JL says:

    All I see in that cover photo is another tweaked face that looks like a thousand more tweaked faces out there.

    What is the girl doing to herself?

  27. NeoCleo says:

    When she’s standing next to RG she looks old enough to be his mother. I think they look ridiculous together but then again . . . he is a mama’s boy.

  28. truthful says:

    now THIS would be good!!

    I did like Ryan and Rachel together.

  29. bluhare says:

    I’ve always thought Eva Mendes would make a great Norma Desmond.

  30. Shira says:

    The world really shouldn’t be deprived of the prettiness that is Ryan and Rachel.

  31. SportsGal says:

    I would like to buy her a new pair of sunglasses.

    Those things are awful.

  32. iyoo5792 says:

    My first time commenting on celebitchy, I personally am not a mcgosling but I loved them together and I know that they probably will never reconcile (maybe just friends) but there’s always hope. :)
    Eva is just meh to me. Also I hate the dress/boots that she is wearing in the header pic, horrible styling.

  33. Celeste says:

    Forget Eva and Rachel; I’d like to see Ryan with a girl who can make him genuinely smile in public.

  34. megsie says:


    I’ll probably spend the afternoon lighting candles and preparing to sacrifice a goat.

    please god please god please god

  35. jane says:

    Ryan and Eva have never seemed real to me. I’m not a fangirl or jealous, but I never see love in his eyes for her. Rachel on the other hand, you could tell he was crazy about her.

  36. Chordy says:

    Am I the only person who totally hated the Notebook? Don’t get me wrong, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling are two of my favorite actors, but I hate the Notebook. I also really like Eva Mendes, so I’m totally bizarro Celebitchy on this whole narrative.

  37. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    Ryan and Eva make a much more interesting story than Ryan and Rachel. The dynamic is more intriguing.

  38. mar says:

    there is something about Eva that I like a lot, but also something that reminds me of a witch.

    Ryan and Rachel look AMAZING together!

  39. anonymous fan says:

    I am no Eva hater but even I have to admit that Ryan looked happier with Rachel.I haven’t seen him smile in the last 2 years when he is walking with her.Why does Eva always looks so angry and standoffish when she’s out?It can’t be that she doesn’t like getting pap’d we know she does. Just saying that if Ryan and Rachel wanted kids and Eva doesn’t it might make sense for them to reunite.

  40. Tania says:

    I am a totally normal person (I swear) but part of me really wants Rachel and Ryan to get back together and have a bunch of little McGoslings!!! I would swoon!

  41. Devon says:

    If it were true, and I was Rachel and still had some feelings for Ryan, I’d definitely be in the “you wanna bet, bitch?” camp.

    The story does sound a bit ridiculous but I’ve heard from people who’ve met Eva that she’s crazy, like lock her in a nut house crazy. And 39? Riight.

  42. amalie says:

    i haven’t liked eva since she was on a flight of mine a few years ago. she threw SUCH a tantrum when the flight was delayed and demanded to wait in a vip area, far away from us peasants. and she was the very last to board. she just seems like a sour puss to me.

  43. lambchops says:

    I will never ever ever see the appeal of this dude. Those little beady eyes and his voice is that of a mouth breather. I’m sure he’s a nice dude, but I don’t see stud muffin here.

  44. Stef says:

    Did ryan and eva’s movie come out yet? Any shot their relationship is a PR stunt to generate interest a la the notebook? I know it sounds far fetched, but i just totally agree with everyone on here. Gosling seems so laid back and down to earth and canadian, and eva looks like Jaffar from Aladin.

  45. skuddles says:

    I’ve always gotten the feeling that Eva is just his “whatever for now” woman. I just can’t see him being all that serious about her. Besides, if he should decide to settle down and have kids Eva will be too old – he’ll go for someone his own age or younger.

  46. Patrice says:

    I’m sorry but, if your mere existance as a newly single person has made your ex’s current gf “territorial” (aka, insecure) enough that she has to send you a personal message saying anything at all, then you’ve already won. Hands down.

    I’ve been on both sides in similar situations before when I was much younger and let me tell you, NOTHING will end a relationship or make a man run back into the arms of a “loving” and “understanding” ex faster than a current gf who is unnecessarily paranoid and insecure. Afterall, would be attracted to that??

  47. KellyinSeattle says:

    I’m of the opinion that if you’re scared to death of your boyfriend cheating on you, you shouldn’t be with him at all, or you need a lot of therapy for yourself.

  48. Barbara says:

    Both Rachael and Ryan have let it be known they want to start families, ie babies. I heard that is why the split of Michael and Rachael, he said he will never marry. So I can see Eva getting nervous…just watch her get pregnant all of a sudden.

  49. Reese says:

    OMG. Are crazy Notebook fangirls STILL bitching about Eva Mendes and crying for Ryan and Rachael? Eva and Ryan are together. Please take a vicodin and calm your asses down. I like Racheal better as an actress but come on, it’s getting old. None of you know Ryan and Eva and you have NO idea how happy together they are OR what she is like. You can tell me bad stories you heard about her from a friend of a friend of your cousins but you know what it means? F^ck all. How about you pull your daydreaming heads out of 2005 and join us in the present.

    • Dani says:

      “Please take a vicodin and calm your asses down.”

      Reese take your own advice.

    • lisa2 says:

      I agree with a lot of what you said. Mainly that people fantasize about couples in movies and think they really are those characters they played in film or TV. Giving them the same characteristics.

      I saw the Notebook. Liked it ok, but didn’t fall in love with them. I think they ended for a reason. There was a period when they were both free. I think that ship has sailed and each has moved on. He is with Eva and has been for some time.

      But thing is this man is not going to ask strangers who he should or should not love.

      But it’s funny reading the comments and hearing the fantasies. But reality is quite different. Like when people say he was happier with RM or he smiled more. Thing is the broke up. So he couldn’t have been that happy. Look at how surprised people were when she and that Michael guy ended.

      The only grip I have with her is when she talks about not getting work because she is too beautiful. That is dumb. It implies that other women working are not as beautiful. We know that beautiful women work in Hollywood and are quite successful.

    • xyz says:

      I dislike the comments she makes. It makes her sound so vain. Only someone really insecure would talk the way she does.

  50. Jamie says:

    I honestly don’t get the intense hatred some people have for Nicholas Sparks films/books. I enjoy them, but then again I like romance where it isn’t all about sex like most films and tv shows now.

  51. cheerfulg says:

    An Experiment for You to Try at Home:
    1. Go to tumblr.com
    2. Search Eva Mendes: Notice how long it take before you see Ryan Gosling. Or his name.
    3. Search Ryan Gosling: Notice how long it take to see Eva Mendes. Or her name.
    4. Now depending on your “Team” you can wring your hands and say “Bwah ha ha”…..

  52. rhonda fuller says:

    Please please God let Ryan and Rachel get back together and have beautiful babies :)

  53. mimi says:

    I would be nervous too, if my boyfriend had some a beautiful ex-girlfriend. BUT they had years to reunite if that was the case, and they never got back together, so I’m guessing there was a good reason and that Rachel has moved on long ago.

    I’m not sure he is this perfect mate or marriage material, and Rachel seems like a sweet girl who deserves someone who would treat her right.

    Especially after wasting her time on this No Marriage- No Kids A – &ole.

  54. Dalovelee says:

    I tend to side with the Rachel and Ryan pairing. This guy seems to have lost all his zeal since being with Eva Mendez. He’s even talking about retiring or taking a break, from what his boring quickly downhill film career. EM is anti muse for him … He looks so much more in love in those pics with Rachel.

  55. Maritza says:

    I’m all for Team Ryan & Rachel, they make a cuter couple.

  56. Anne says:

    By most, if not all, accounts – Ryan and Rachel had an amicable breakup, him even describing her as a great girlfriend after the fact. Putting myself in Ryan’s shoes, I wouldn’t take too kindly to Eva mean girling her.

  57. ??? says:

    I don’t give a hoot about the possibility of “McGosling” happening ever again, but I’m wondering, how is Eva intimidating, exactly? She’s a trashy, transparently insecure, unintelligent former drug addict with no acting talent. I would normally try not to judge a person bearing any of those characteristics — either singly or in combination — just so long as said person were to have a redeeming quality or two. But my hunch is that Eva doesn’t. She’s just dumb and superfluous. Even her L’Oreal ads are crap.

    Plus, she uses a shock collar on her dog. That alone instantly qualifies her for a top spot on my celebrity sh*t list.

    I don’t know how tough Rachel McAdams’s Canadian roots make her, but put Mendes up against a real b*tch from, say, Queens or the Bronx, and I guarantee that Eva wouldn’t be doing any “shutting down” of any kind.

  58. Selena says:

    What is so hot about Ryan Gosling? Yes, he has the bad boy air about him, but he never smiles with his mouth open. That goofy tight lipped smile is not attractive.
