A Timeline of Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s Under-the-Radar Romance
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been together for more than a decade and keep their relationship extremely private. While it’s unclear exactly when these two started dating, the couple were first linked back in September 2011 when they were spotted enjoying a magical date at Disneyland. Since then, Mendes and Gosling have shared a handful of sweet moments, starred in a movie together, and welcomed their two kids, daughters Esmeralda and Amada.
The couple took some time away from the spotlight but returned with new projects in 2022. In July of that year, Gosling starred alongside Chris Evans, Regé-Jean Page, and Ana de Armas in Netflix’s “The Gray Man.” Two months prior, Variety reported that the actor was set to lead a 2024 film adaptation of iconic ’80s TV show “The Fall Guy,” which has since been confirmed to also star Emily Blunt, Teresa Palmer, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hannah Waddingham, Winston Duke, and Stephanie Hsu, per Deadline.
Meanwhile, Mendes joined a new venture in May 2022: kitchen-product company Skura Style. “I’m not the cook in the family, but the dishes are my domain. I find cleaning oddly exciting, and as a dish freak, I was shocked to learn that the sponge is the dirtiest item in my house! That’s when my obsession with Skura began,” she shared in a press statement. “I’m beyond thrilled to announce that I’m not only an ambassador for Skura Style but I’m also co-owner in this innovative female owned business.”
Up next, Gosling’s highly anticipated “Barbie” film, which he stars in with Margot Robbie, is set to premiere in July, and it seems his longtime partner is just as excited as “Barbie” fans for the movie’s summer debut. On May 16, she posted a photo of herself on Instagram that pictured her sporting a Barbie-branded T-shirt with Gosling on it. “Got that real big Kenergy. Coz girls is players too,” Mendes captioned it. Now, will she pose alongside Gosling at the “Barbie” premiere? It’s unlikely but understandable considering how rare it is for the two to attend red carpet events together.
