Ryan Gosling Splitting From Eva Mendes, Wants Marriage – Report
Ryan Gosling was a shoulder to cry on for ex Rachel McAdams after her break up with Michael Sheen
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ relationship is constantly the subject of rumors that speculate that the couple is heading for a breakup. The latest cause for a split is reportedly that Gosling wants marriage, while Mendes is still adverse to the idea.
Gosling has often been quoted in interviews claiming that he sees a wedding and kids in his future. Unfortunately, his current girlfriend might not now, or ever, be on the same page. “Ryan’s friends know he is ready to settle down, 100 percent,” a source told ShowbizSpy. "Eva loves Ryan, but she’s very nontraditional when it comes to what she wants.”
“She’s phobic about commitment. That’s the root of the problem,” the source added.
One reason Mendes might be dragging her feet to the altar could be that she still has feelings for her ex, Peruvian filmmaker George Augusto, whom she dated from 2002 to 2010. “They are still very much intertwined… she’s started saying things about how George is the only guy who really gets her,” a friend of the actress told ShowbizSpy.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Mendes was getting jealous of Gosling’s ongoing friendship with ex-girlfriend Rachel McAdams. Following McAdam’s split from her latest beau Michael Sheen, Gosling had served as a chief consoler.
“Rachel’s always kept in touch with Ryan, but now that she’s split with Michael, she’s been calling him and using him as a shoulder to cry on,” a source told Now Magazine. “It hasn’t gone down very well with Eva, to say the least.
If Gosling is contemplating leaving Mendes, it seems possible he could wind up back with McAdams, with whom he starred in The Notebook. After their split, Gosling admitted he felt that McAdams was one of the “great loves” of his life in an interview with GQ. “People do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that movie,” Gosling added. “Rachel and my love story is a hell of a lot more romantic than that.”
