    I knew it. I knew he would cast her in his movie.

  • blue_belle

    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.

  • Jenna

    Well at least she got a job..

  • J12003

    of course she did… shocking!

  • melanie

    He’s the one who got her the role on Place Beyond the Pines.

  • Anne

    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.

  • Nell

    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!

  • xena

    Being Ryan Gosling’s girlfriend has it’s perks.

  • jess
  • A

    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

  • LL

    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.

  • OMG Google Kelsnetwork and see

    i cant wait to see her in the movie!!!

  • christina

    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!!!

  • Spot

    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.

  • doglatin

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

  • just me

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

  • Ace

    It seems like he really loves her…awww

  • yawns

    Is anybody but Ryan’s middle aged fan girls even going to pay to see this movie?

  • barbie kate

    another big box office for the king of hollywood
    juas juas

  • Pepper

    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.

  • sexiest dog alive

    ohhhh please all of you fangirls should stop talking like he is gods gift for woman…you dont know him personaly maybe he is a jerk maybe she is how cares???
    Just another hollywood relationship that i dont give a damn about and neither should all of you, even if he is single that doesnt mean that he is waiting for you he will get the next sexy bitch and that will not be one of you!!!!

  • cheerfulg

    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

    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

    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.

  • ace11

    This is proabbly a good thing

    It will kill both of their careers

  • bela

    @barbie kate:

    and? When was the last time Brad Pitt opened at 20 million or more? his last movie Killing Them Softly Flopped With Viewers in USA.

    Gosling’s future movies Only god forgives, The place beyond the pines or Malick movie and his directional debut are not about BO.

    Ryan is not a BO drawn. His movies except Crazy, stupid love or G.Squad are movies with a very little budget.

    He has an oscar nomination, and an amazing career and he works with very interesting directors.

    His choices are not about super-heroe franchises or BO hits.

  • Tessa

    @barbie kate: Nowadays, film quality is, more often than not, inversely proportional to big box office. Ryan’s, and other actors, best movies were independent ones, like Half Nelson, or films directed by European directors like Drive, and I hope he will keep pursuing these kind of movies. Big box office movies are always absolute crap these days.

    Beautiful sunglasses on Ryan! anyone got an idea about the Brand??
