Eva Mendes is serious about her privacy.
One reporter found out the hard way, when she asked Eva about boyfriend Ryan Gosling during a recent interview.
Jada Yuan of New York Magazine & Vulture writes:
But when I ask how the couple met, Mendes cuts me off. “That’s where I start to shut down, because it gets into personal territory that I don’t feel comfortable talking about. So sorry.”
She wishes that tabloids would blur the faces of their dogs, Hugo (hers) and George (his), in photos, like British papers do to kids’ faces. “I’ll go somewhere and they’ll be like, ‘Hey, Hugo!’ and I’m like, ‘How do you know Hugo’s name? That’s so creepy!’ ”
Pushing my luck, I ask if she wants kids. “I’m so out of here!” she says, laughing. “You know the cartoon where the steam comes out and it says, ‘Boop-beep-boop. System down!’?” She disappears into the bathroom for a long time, but returns just as I begin to wonder if I’ve been ditched.
We’ve got to admit, we’re surprised Eva pulled a ditch on the topic when we all know The Place Beyond the Pines actors have been dating for awhile.
When people talk, you need to listen. But hey, scared money don’t make money!
