Reports circulated over the weekend that Ryan Gosling and girlfriend Eva Mendes were calling it quits, but rumors of his singleness were greatly exaggerated. The increasingly untrustworthy Daily Mail claimed that Gosling was spotted in South Africa with a hot blonde model from Germany. Single and mingling.
Suddenly, millions of women who are usually completely rational found themselves thinking “Gosling is single? Now I totally have a chance!” It’s okay, ladies. It happens to the best of us.
Unfortunately for us but fortunately for Mendes, the whole thing was a bunch of baloney.
In fact, Gosling has been in Bangkok for weeks (that’s why he missed awards season and deprived us of the opportunity to drool over him in a tux), where he’s filming “Only God Forgives.” And he definitely didn’t leave for the weekend for a rendezvous in South Africa — because Mendes was in Bangkok, with him. They were photographed together as recently as Thursday.
You can put away your in-case-of-Gosling LBD now, girls. Sigh.
