Ryan Gosling is all smiles while participating in a Q&A session for his movie Lost River on Friday night (April 10) at the Angelika Film Center in New York City.
The 34-year-old actor recently revealed that his girlfriend Eva Mendes, who stars in the new movie, also was a production intern on the set!
“She was around when I was writing it and she was very helpful in many aspects of the process,” Ryan told Express. “She interned with the costume department, and with the production design team and she was also acting in it, so she wore a lot of hats on the film.”

“Dear favorite pair of sweatpants. I was just kidding when I said you’re the #1 cause of divorce,” Eva wrote on her Instagram account. “Everyone knows that orange crocs are the #1 cause of divorce. Either way it was a bad joke and feel terrible if you or anyone thought I was serious. Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs.”
Eva Mendes is opening up about the secret to keeping her longtime boyfriend Ryan Gosling a happy man – never wearing sweatpants!
“You can’t do sweatpants… ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!” the 41-year-old actress told Extra.
Eva also opened up about being a new mother to six-month-old daughter Esmeralda.
“Now I understand so much, my mother’s never gotten more ‘I love you so much mommy’ texts, I mean, randomly… ya, I get it now.” Eva said.
“[She's] sleeping through the night, but every night it’s like, you never know,” Eva said about getting her daughter to sleep. “Something random can happen and she’s just suddenly not sleeping through the night and you’re like, wait, I thought we were sleeping through the night, what’s up?!” She laughed, “Why does it always happen at three or four in the morning?!”
FYI: Eva is wearing a Roksanda dress in the video.

After the screening, Ryan and the cast took questions in a Q&A segment. One of the questions ended up turning into a marriage proposal, when one woman asked a fellow audience member, her girlfriend of 11 years, to marry her!
Ryan and the cast watched as the proposal happened – he even gave the woman the microphone to facilitate the proposal. You can see the whole Q&A with the proposal below, or skip to 11:45 to see just the proposal!

“Taking to Instagram to keep you posted on my clothing line for @nyandcompany and CIRCA Beauty (@realcircabeauty), a cosmetics line I have coming out at Walgreens. I thought this picture might be a good way to start. 38 years later and still holding strong on the head wrap comeback. x,” Eva captioned it.
Here’s what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On her baby Esmeralda: “I’m actually enjoying the sleepless nights because it’s bonding with my little girl…I don’t feel like I’ve really earned the right [to give motherly advice.] I want to respect all the moms out there. They’re going to be like, ‘You know what? You’re a few months in. Just shut up.”
On being photographed in public: “I believe there is a public self and a private self. My sisters and my good friends are experiencing that now [with] Facebook and Instagram. When they freak out about a friend of theirs posting a bad picture of them, I’m like, ‘Well, imagine how I feel! Get used to it!’”
On her therapist: “Having [a therapist] who’s totally objective and who points out my patterns— I find that really helpful. And I’m lucky to work with someone who doesn’t just sit there and nod her head, you know? I need to hear what you think! Tell me what’s wrong with me so I can fix it!”
