Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes stand out in Hollywood. They are the true example of a power couple who flourish on mutual respect and support for each other. The two started dating back in 2011 while working on the movie The Place Beyond the Pines.

In the film, Gosling took on the role of Luke Glanton (a motorcycle stuntman who gets involved in crime), while Eva Mendes portrayed Romina Gutierrez (Luke’s ex-lover who raises their son as a single mother).

Since then, they’ve kept their relationship private and don’t often appear together in public. Despite having been in a relationship since 2011 and having two daughters – Esmeralda and Amada – the public eye didn’t know they were married until a decade later. It was 2022, when the 50 year-old actress confirmed her marriage status with the Barbie star.

Besides all that, the Hollywood stars are going strong. Even recently, Gosling shared how much he values his wife, not just as a partner and parent, but also as a secret weapon for his acting. He talked about her support and how she influences his career in surprising ways.
