Derek Cianfrance was adamant not to let production designers dig the hole for Ryan in the scene where Dean is burying his dog. Ryan dug it himself and an hour and a half later, “When he was done digging the hole, he broke down. And that was an unscripted scene, him crying at the table. He was actually so emotional and what he told me afterwards was that, that process tricked his body because his body was so exhausted and his body didn’t know that that wasn’t his dog. His body just buried his dog, and his body reacted in that way.“
Since the Oscars are on Sunday and one of the internet’s boyfriends Ryan Gosling is nominated (but won’t win), I thought I’d update this post here
on the lowkey cuteness of Baby Goose’s relationship with his lady of over five six years, Eva Mendes.
As I said before, this is mostly because folks like to pretend, 5+ years and two kids
later, that his relationship with Miss Eva is just a fling, or he’s been “trapped” and
some go as far as to hope, yes, HOPE, that he will cheat on his gal
with Emma Stone or Rachel McAdams or whomever. So since I don’t see this level of disrespect
stopping Sunday night or ever, I thought I’d give some love to Ryan’s actual
lady love, whether she shows up with him at the Oscars or not (PLEASE SHOW UP, EVA). They are actual low key couple goals.
1. Ryan basically insisted on Eva for the role of his ex in The Place Beyond the Pines,
saying Eva, at the time a casual acquaintance/friend of several years and mutual friend of his former
co-star Kirsten Dunst, was underrated as an actress. Soon, he took her
to Disney and it was on. They both would later say it was one of the best experiences they had on a film.
2. …he clearly was playing the long game on that set, LOOK AT HIS FACE
Look at him, even when she wasn’t looking, boy was smitten
3. He took his shot with an admirable quickness
Real quick. And the rest was history.
4. HEIGHT DIFFERENCE AND THE SMILING
No, really, she’s little. Standing on a big step in heels and yet still small
THEY’RE CUTE, OKAY. YOU LOVE THIS KIND OF SHIT, TUMBLR.
6. AND THE WAY HE LOOKS AT HER WHEN SHE’S NOT LOOKING
7. Here’s Ellen getting Eva all blushing and giggling talking about Ryan
9. People trying to act like he’s not in a relationship? Ryan had an app for that
know that I’m with the person I’m supposed to be with,” he says, adding
that the only quality he looks for in a woman is “that she’s Eva
Mendes. There’s nothing else I’m looking for.”
Both dog lovers, Ryan wears Eva’s late dog’s tag on his neck at an event
She also reps his dog on her instagram
They share the same sense of humor, and are both huge fans of Atlanta and Broad City (Eva follows the BC girls on insta, and Ryan would quote BC on twitter. Constantly).
12. Ryan on Eva and their kids:
“…it’s like a dream that I’m having right now. I’m dreaming it all. So I
feel so lucky…There was nothing kind of premeditated about it, you
know. It just suddenly was: My life had changed. And thank God it did.”
And this, as he continues to say a lot with so little
“It sounds so clichéd, but I never knew that life could be this fun and this great.”
When I ask him if he gets lonely, he says: “Not any more.”
not? “Because I have a family.” That takes it away? “Mmm-hmm.” But
you’ve felt loneliness before? “In my life? Yeah.” When? Why? “I think,
before I had a family.”
He gave her an emerald ring after the birth of their daughter Esmeralda. The Spanish word for emerald is…Esmeralda.
Eva has also spoken of how they play a lot of Latin music in their home and their insistence on keeping Eva’s culture in their daughters’ lives.
15. Ryan has engaged in a turf war with his daughter against other kids over Eva and Esmeralda’s “honor:”
kid has been erasing [Esmeralda’s] name and writing their name over it.
So now I’m in a proper tagging battle. And this kid has access to an
unfair amount of chalk. I’m
trying to explain to my little girl that this is [unacceptable]. She
doesn’t care. She’s like, ‘Well let’s just chalk anywhere else,’ and I’m
like, ‘No, no. They’re disrespecting your mother. Because, she gave you
this name and they’re erasing it.’ You’ve got to be careful when you’re trying to teach your kid what a reasonable amount of vengeance is.”
16. Ryan constantly gives Eva her due, even when she doesn’t like it:
[’On the making of his directorial debut Lost River] “She hates credit and she’ll even be mad that I’m giving her that credit. But she was very helpful in so many ways.”
And he shared how she was responsible for one of the best lines out of La La Land:
“’LA worships everything and values nothing.’ That was something my lady
said to me one day and I thought it was so funny I asked her if I could
put it in the movie. She was kidding, but it’s a
funny thing to say… I loved when she said it, because it’s funny
enough to have some truth to it, you know? But it’s obviously a joke, so
it just seemed appropriate for the movie.”
17. This adorable pic, taken at Ryan’s childhood home in Canada:
18. Possible ring situation happening here? How private they are compared to other celebrities, we’ll never know!
19. He really loves his family:
Are you rich, I ask him, halfway through our interview.
do you mean?” Gosling asks.
I’m not sure the question needs
elaboration, but OK: do you consider yourself rich? Do you feel rich?
He pauses. “I mean, I live with angels,” he says eventually. “So. You know.”
do you mean, you “live with angels”?
“My daughters” (Gosling has two
children, a two-year-old and a nine-month-old) “My girl.” (The actress Eva Mendes, Gosling’s partner, the
mother of his children.) “I don’t need anything else.”
20. And, of course, Ryan’s Golden Globes speech, where he acknowledges Eva’s silent, hard work behind the scenes, and honors her late brother:
So that’s it for this long-ass, long-winded post! That’s the last time I’m doing something like this!
Good luck at the Oscars, Ryan, you won’t win but hopefully you’ll have a good night! And hopefully with Eva! Never break up, ya crazy kids!
we really need to talk about how in kaleidoscope eyes wrote “my emerald city, downtown girl”. and there’s an emerald city ref via a wizard of oz ref in northern downpour; “you clicked your heels and wished for me”, and what city in us is known as the emerald city? seattle aka a place that feels like home.
also how ryan named his dog dorothy, like protagonist of the wizard of oz, the one who goes to the emerald city, then clicks her heels and wishes for home.
also that live performance of green gentleman where brendon sings “i never said i’d leave seattle” instead of “the city” and also yells “for ryan ross”
”Hey Ohm,” Ryan blinked. That was new, Luke mentioning him in a video outside of youtube. Ryan watched as the lens got blinded by the light of the airport before coming back into focus. ”I just landed, and it’s not ice tea,”
Bryce doesn’t know what compelled him to go to this party.
Maybe it was Minx’s plea of ‘You can retake classes but you can’t relive parties!’
Or Delirious’s 'The test is two weeks away dude! You have plenty of time to study later!’
Either way, here he was. Brought by Delirious’s car. The house was already trashed. There was toilet paper strewn about the roof and red solo cups scattered in the yard. The place wreaked of alcohol and the music was blasting throughout the house. It’s a wonder the cops aren’t here yet. 'College is all about parties’, but Bryce disagrees. Completely. But he still went.
All of a sudden, a drunken arm slid around Bryce. It was Minx, and she had already consumed quite a bit of alcohol, but was a heavy weight.
“Heya Bryce! You decided to come after all eh?” She asked the blonde.
“I guess so…I still don’t know why you wanted me to come.” Bryce said.
“I have someone I want you to meet, but I have to find him first. He’s pretty tall, but not taller than you though, and he has chocolate hair and Hazel eyes.” She explained.
Bryce just nodded. He’ll find this man eventually.
“Oh! And his name is Ryan. I’m gonna go talk to this girl I met, her name’s Krism and she’s really sweet. Hope you find him!” Minx said, jogging off with a wave.
“Minx-” Bryce started, but never finished.
Bryce knew Minx wasn’t going to come back. He just sighed, and entered the house. If this person was the reason he was here, he was going to find him.
Bryce wove through the sea of bodies and up the stairs. This house was huge and Bryce was soon wandering around like a lost puppy.
He suddenly bumped into someone. Not like he had been the past few minutes, he hit this person straight on.
“Woah Bryce! Be careful!” Delirious exclaimed.
“Sorry Delirious. I was looking for someone…” Bryce trailed off.
“Oh. Good luck then!” Delirious said, walking off to find Evan. Bryce doesn’t know that though.
He just kept walking, with no clue as to where he was supposed to go. How was Bryce supposed to know where to go? All Minx did was give him a vague description of Ryan. And when he met this person, how was he supposed to find out if it was Ryan or not?
'Hi! My names Bryce, and my friend Minx is setting me up with friends because I’m addicted to studying. Are you Ryan?’
This was never gonna work out in the first place. Bryce decided he should just leave. While he was walking down the enormous staircase though, he was pushed by someone in a hurry, and fell down the stairs, landing on his butt at the bottom. His leg hurt pretty badly, but it might not be broken. He tried to stand, but only one of his legs wanted to work.
Someone saw this happen though, and rushed to get to the fallen man.
“Are you okay?” He had asked.
The stranger held Bryce’s hands as he helped him stand.
“My leg hurts pretty bad, but otherwise yes.” Bryce replied.
When he looked up though, it wasn’t just some stranger. Maybe. It looks exactly how Ryan was described. Chocolate hair and hazel eyes. Was this Ryan?
“Here. Let’s go to the bathroom and see if they have a first aid kit. You’re bleeding quite a lot.” The stranger said.
“Yeah. Thank you.”
The stranger only nodded and helped him upstairs. Once finding the bathroom, the stranger sat Bryce down on the toilet seat and started rummaging through the cabinet. He pulled out a first aid kit, and crouched down next to Bryce. He started wrapping the bandage around his knee, where he had hit something on the way down. The stranger had also gotten ice for his arm, which he had bruised.
“What’s your name?” The stranger asked.
“Yeah…how did you know?”
“A friend of mine was going to introduce us. She knows you.”
“Was it Minx?”
“Actually, it was.”
“She told me what you looked like and what your name was, but after that she ditched me for a girl.”
“Well. My names Ryan. Ryan Wrecker, nice to meet you.”
Bryce just laughed a bit and yawned. He was glad Ryan was taking care of him and not drunk. He was also really happy he had managed to find Ryan.
“Are you tired?” Ryan asked.
“Yeah. But I can’t go home until Delirious is ready. Sadly, I don’t think he’s ever gonna leave. His boyfriend is hosting this and he was pretty drunk.”
“Do you want to ride home with me then? I don’t want you to have to stay here longer than you want.”
“That would be nice, thank you.”
“No problem. Here, let’s go to my car.”
After that, Ryan helped Bryce down the stairs and out the door. They made it to the car, and Ryan helped him into the passengers seat.
They were at Ryan’s house soon enough, as he didn’t live too far away. His house was much bigger than Bryce’s apartment.
Upon entering, a dog jumped up at Bryce’s feet. This was Buddy, Ryan’s dog. Ryan kept dragging him further into the house though, and entered was seemed to be a bedroom.
“Here Bryce, lay down. Get some rest.”
“Is this *yawn* Is this your bed?”
“Yeah. I’m going to sleep on the couch tonight.” Ryan answered, stretching.
“I don’t want to make you sleep on the couch though…” Bryce said with a frown.
“Are you implying to sleep with you?” Ryan asked with a smirk.
“This is your bed. I don’t want to intrude…” Bryce blushed.
“Whatever you say.” Ryan said.
Ryan then lowered himself into bed next to Bryce, facing his peaceful sleeping face.
Ryan couldn’t help but move closer, he had been attracted to the male ever since he saw him. Ryan slowly latched his arms around Bryce’s waist. He felt Bryce snuggle into his chest, sighing softly, and wrapping his arms around Ryan’s stomach. Ryan smiled, and kissed Bryce’s forehead.
“Goodnight Ryan” he heard Bryce mumble.
