Ryan Gosling really must be wonderful to work with, because he has charmed plenty of his costars (including Rachel McAdams and George Clooney). The latest to fall victim to his dashing good looks and captivating personality is Eva Mendes, who worked with Gosling on the upcoming drama The Place Beyond the Pines and has been dating him since September. As she reveals in the new issue of Marie Claire, Gosling is an absolute "dream" -- at least on the set.
"He's your dream costar," Mendes, 37, reveals in the March issue of the magazine. "I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film. He's amazing."
Hmm... creatively satisfied, you say? What about being satisfied by Gosling in, um, other ways? "Stop, just stop," Mendes tells the reporter when asks her a follow-up question about her offscreen relationship with the 31-year-old actor. "I'm not gonna budge. I feel uncomfortable talking about it. It's too personal."
Oh well, can't blame a reporter for trying. And, although Mendes is staying tight-lipped about the couple's budding romance, things seem to have gotten pretty serious over the past few months: They went to Paris over Thanksgiving and spent New Year's Eve together -- and the two even hung out with Gosling's mom on New Year's Day.
Still, Mendes isn't ready to talk about whether she's ready for marriage or kids -- with Gosling or with anyone else. "Those are such boring topics to me," she tells Marie Claire. "I am not that girl. I don't like talking about things that I want in the future because I feel by verbalizing such things, they won't come true."
iVillage asked the actress a similar question in 2009, when Mendes was still with her boyfriend of six years George Gargurevich, and even then she said she wasn't sure if children were in her future. "To be totally honest, I just don't know," she answered. "I have a dog, Hugo, who has probably changed my life. I've had him for almost three years now, and just caring for something other than myself is very appealing to me. Yet, I certainly don't think me loving my dog means I'm ready to have kids."
