It looks as though something more than a working relationship is brewing between Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling. The 37-year-old Cuban American actress and 30-year-old Gosling, who are currently shooting their film The Place Beyond the Pines together, were spotted in Disneyland this past Saturday. "They were very playful," an observer told Us Magazine. "Eva was skipping around like a little girl—she would lean into him and she held his arm the entire time."
The pair went on plenty of rides together, including the ferris wheel, Toy Story ride, the California Screamin’ rollercoaster, and a Little Mermaid adventure. A source told the magazine that Mendes and Gosling have been friends for a long time. "There's always been this strong chemistry between them," the source said. "This was just a matter of time!” Mendes, who was our December 2010/January 2011 cover girl, ended her long-term relationship with producer George Gargurevich this summer.
Directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), The Place Beyond the Pines is a film about a motorcyclist (Gosling) who considers delving into crime to care for his wife and child. Mendes plays Gosling’s wife.
