Ryan Gosling hardly ever says words about Eva Mendes, because he’s always get a “Privacy Please” sign on his mouth, but while promoting The Big Short during an interview with Hello! Canada, he blew a dozen air kisses at her. Ryan’s words about Eva are like extra hot daggers stuck in the hearts of all of the “shippers” who think that true love doesn’t exist until Ryan and Rachel McAdams get married and have ten million McGosling babies.
“I 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.”
And just like that, thousands of Ryan Gosling fangirls are going to legally change their name to “Eva Mendes” so they can have the one quality he’s looking for in a woman.
Ryan also talked about their one-year-old daughter Esmerelda a little. Ryan says that it’s only her second Christmas, but she’s already adopted the tradition of over-playing holiday music to death:
“This will be our first Christmas where [Esmeralda is] sort of taking it all in, so that’s exciting. She’s obsessed with the Hanson Christmas album! No disrespect to Hanson, they’re very talented kids, but I think I’ve heard that record enough. I’m sure it will be on a loop this Christmas as well.”
Ryan is better than me, because if I had a child and that child wanted me to play the Hanson Christmas album on a loop, I’d take that as a not-so-subtle sign that my kid hates me and lives to see me in pain. I’d sit my one-year-old baby down and say, “I was going to wait until you were 18 to have this talk with you, but since you’ve given me no other choice, I’m going to have to ask you to move out immediately. I’ll help you find a new place on Zillow.”
