At this year’s Golden Globe Awards, Gosling again attended sans date, but in a surprise move, he made sure to thank his partner during a heartfelt acceptance speech.
“While I was singing, dancing, playing piano, and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer,” he said.
“Early on, we decided it’s going to be so hard for her to have privacy,” Mendes said to Ellen De Generes during an appearance on her show.
“This is the first opportunity we can give her, to protect her, and so that I had a nice, calm pregnancy, which I did.” The couple pulled off the same feat last year after their second, Amada Lee, was born last April.
There have been many memorable ones in the past: Remember sinewy Anjelica Huston arm in arm with Jack Nicholson in 1975?
, there was plenty of PDA and Eva was even "skipping around like a little girl." I mean, wouldn't you, if you were on a date with Ryan Gosling?
No word on whether or not Ryan busted out some classic Mickey Mouse Club dance moves or told Eva about his hometown of Cornwall, Ontario.
“If she hadn’t taken all that on so I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here today.” Viewers around the world collectively swooned.
So while the odds are Gosling will show up to the Oscars solo once again, perhaps it’s for the best. They’ve all split since then—quite messily and publicly, in fact.
