    She’s not going anywhere. But that’s ok. It’s his life and she must make him happy. Maybe she’s nice and not the diva she’s made out to be?
    I hope so.

    At first, I didn’t like that Ryan was dating a woman who is reportedly arrogant. But, now, after the way she was treated by his fans and non fans because of their relationship, I sort admire that he has stayed with her. Besides, liking older women makes him hotter.

    Well their showmance kept them successfully in the headlines last year – more so than box office numbers. Get ready for lots of pap pictures from the set, LOL!

    She isn’t all that bad of an actress. She just hasn’t had the greatest roles. I thought she was amazing in “We Own The Night” but that’s really it. I think she’s more a “Jessica Alba” actress. Not all that talented but very pretty lol

    Dying laughing. Of course, of course. Ryan is “that guy” at this point…it’s like an ongoing, endless, bad cliche playing out…really? Really?? Integrity is the last thing you can call your own in this town..oh brother. Although, he did call Blake Lively an amazing actress, which pretty much cements the theory that he’ll literally give props to anyone, regardless of whether it’s true hahaha.

    I think she’s a pretty dull,plain boring actress, but being Ryan such a generous, caring soul I must say I was expecting him to cast her. Looks like her role is not a very significant one tough, which makes me feel positive. And I could not agree more with Anne when she says liking older women makes Ryan even hotter….what a fine specimen is he!!!

    I would love it if they broke up just before it. They are rarely even seen out together is this supposed to make them look serious? Eva can’t act her way out of a wet paperbag it isn’t the roles to blame it’s the actress. She get’s the roles she does because she isn’t a great actress. Now she is getting some more work but only because she is sleeping with the director and it’s a small role not the main one which will make it easier to replace her.

    Having read the script I would agree that her role wouldn’t be a huge one, but its significant, nonetheless.

    @xena: she can’t get nothing on her own . That’s is sad. She is not a real woman.

    It’s so funny reading this. When director guys choose their girls for a role, it’s not really casting. If there was a casting, they would find much better actresses.

    Eva in Ryan’s film? Oh come on, really? Why this is the most shocking news of the whole day, right before the 8.0 earthquake and 2 feet of snow to come [big fat eye roll with a sloppy yawn]. I do bet their home life was pretty interesting before she was cast.

    meagan Says:

    I wonder how this movie is going to turn out? I hear it’s pretty dark.
    He cast Eva because she’s his girlfriend. She probably begged for a role and he wanted to be nice. It doesn’t necessarily mean she’s right for it. Or maybe he wrote it with her in mind? I don’t know.

    daisy Says:

    Ryan is an actor who has a lot of power in hollywood right now. Her being with him automatically raises her profile. He is really trying to help her out with her career. I used to be really jealous of her, and thought she didn’t deserve him. But I don’t know her, or him for that matter.
