If You’re Wondering, Ryan Gosling And Eva Mendes Are Still One Of The Cutest Celebrity Couples Around

Ryan is certainly making the most of his huge platform during interviews for his upcoming movie.

It’s fair to say that Ryan Gosling’s biggest supporter throughout his career-defining tenure as Ken in Barbie was his wife, Eva Mendes.

While the two normally try to keep their 12-year relationship as private as possible, Eva couldn’t help but gush over her husband on social media throughout awards season.

When Ryan’s song from the movie, “I’m Just Ken,” won a Critics' Choice Award — and his subsequent reaction went viral — Eva proudly shared the clip to her Instagram page and simply wrote: “I LOVE HIM!!!!"

And after Ryan was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his performance at this year’s Oscars, Eva shared a screenshot of a damning 2022 Rolling Stone article that poked fun at Ryan when the first photos of him as Ken were released.

And Ryan revealed that Eva and their two children had a hand in his showstopping performance of “I’m Just Ken” on Oscar night, telling People they had given him “some tips and some notes” after watching his dress rehearsal the day before the event.

While Eva didn’t attend the ceremony with Ryan, she did share a photo of herself seemingly backstage as she posed in a cowboy hat and the pink jacket from the performance. She gushed in the caption: “You took Ken all the way to the Oscar’s, RG. Now come home, we need to put the kids to bed. 💋”

Although Ryan joked about struggling to move on from Ken in his Saturday Night Live monologue earlier this month, he officially put the character behind him after the Oscars.

He is now going full throttle with promotion for his new movie, The Fall Guy, with him and his costar Emily Blunt currently working the global interview circuit ahead of the film’s release.

But it isn’t just The Fall Guy that Ryan is promoting, with people noticing that he is not-so-subtly using his huge platform to reciprocate the endless support that Eva has shown his career over the years by wearing a T-shirt advertising her latest venture.

During a host of interviews, including an appearance on British daytime show This Morning, Ryan is wearing a white top that reads: “Desi, Mami, and the Never-Ending Worries by Eva Mendes.”

This is the title of Eva’s debut children’s book, which Eva previously told People is "a love letter to my kids and yours," and is due for release in September.

Needless to say, fans love Ryan’s sweet nod to his wife, with somebody sharing screenshots from the This Morning interview and tweeting: “ryan gosling doing promo wearing a shirt with the name of eva mendes's book like??”

Others were quick to share their response in the quote tweets, with one writing: “ryan gosling, the man that you are.” Another user tweeted: “That’s a good man fr.”

“God I’ve seen what you’ve done for others…” somebody else joked, while one more simply tweeted: “I love this man so much.”

If you didn’t know, Ryan and Eva fell in love while shooting the 2012 movie The Place Beyond the Pines together. They married in 2016 and share two children: 9-year-old Esmerelda and 7-year-old Amada.
