For someone who claims not to be confident enough to use pickup lines on women, Ryan Gosling sure has been linked to a lot of them lately. Over the past year, tabloids have speculated that he was dating everyone from Blake Lively to Michelle Williams and Olivia Wilde. But after this weekend, perhaps some of those rumors can be put to rest. Gosling and the lovely Eva Mendes, who recently got close while filming the drama The Place Beyond the Pines (pictured), took their budding romance public in a big way on Saturday, packing on the PDA while on a playful date at Disneyland.
According to witnesses -- and plently of photographs -- the two were seen kissing, holding hands and hanging out well into the night, all while enjoying a playful date at the Anaheim, Calif., theme park.
"They looked relaxed and seemed to be having a fun time together," an eyewitness tells People. "Like a dating couple, they always walked very closely, holding hands and their arms touching side-by-side."
Gosling, 30, and Mendes, 37, ate pink cotton candy and popcorn, and enjoyed rides like Ariel's Undersea Adventure and 4-D Toy Story Mania. They also took in the World of Color Spectacular water show and, as late as 10 p.m., were spotted at Disney's Tomorrowland.
And apparently the two were having a blast the entire time. "Eva was skipping around like a little girl," an onlooker tells Us Weekly. "She would lean into (Ryan), and she held his arm the entire time."
A source from the set of The Place Beyond the Pines concurs. "Ryan and Eva have spent a lot of time together on set," the witness confirms to People. "They have great chemistry and seem to enjoy filming together. They seem to be good friends and always laugh together."
Gosling has previously dated Rachel McAdams, Sandra Bullock and Kirsten Dunst. Mendes, who ended a long-term relationship with producer George Gargurevich this summer, has complained in the past that men never hit on her -- but it looks like Gosling is the exception!
Maybe when Gosling's not breaking up street fights, he's been practicing his pickup lines.
