Eva Mendes Talks Ryan Gosling
Let me start by saying that Eva Mendes is a lovely woman. Has been every time I've interviewed her. But when you go and date America's boyfriend, you're bound to pick up (and convert) some haters.
First there were the "Are They Or Aren't They Dating" paparazzi photos. Then there was the widespread acceptance -- or, acknowledgement, rather -- that they were in fact getting it on.
Then she started to flaunt it -- like with that FunnyOrDie Christmas video which cast them as husband and wife. Now, there's a new interview in Marie Claire that, on the surface, seems innocent, but when read through the lens of a Gosling superfan, it's clear she's throwing their hot, steamy love in our collective faces.
When asked about working with Ryan (in 2012's The Place Beyond the Pines), Eva says, "He's your dream costar. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film."
But you just know that when she says "creatively satisfied on a film," she really means "in bed." Amiright??? I mean, that wording is so carefully chosen as to reflect their professional relationship, that the subtext rapidly becomes text.
I could go on for days in trying to prove my point, but I'm quickly realizing what a loser I sound like and fear incurring a restraining order. Because I have plans for Gosling. Eesh, that came out wrong.
