While rumors about a marriage between Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes circulate the internet every now and then, the two actors have managed to keep their relationship status a mystery. It appears that Gosling learned from past experiences where his relationships were under constant media spotlight. He initially dated Sandra Bullock, who was 16 years older than him. However, the relationship that caught the public eye was the one with Rachel McAdams.

However, besides Bullock and McAdams, there were several other celebrities linked to Gosling. Kat Dennings, who played the fan-favorite Darcy Lewis in MCU and Max Black in 2 Broke Girls, was spotted on a date with Gosling in 2009. The two were seen together at Disneyland, which appeared to be one of the Blade Runner 2049 actor’s go-to places for dating. However, Dennings refused to address the rumors in an MTV interview a month later.

Another romance rumor that surfaced involved Blake Lively, who was seen together with the La La Land actor at Disneyland. This was during the time when Lively had broken things off with Penn Badgley and before she met Ryan Reynolds, both in 2010. Yet, nothing more than a single date was ever reported about this relationship.

Ryan Gosling’s other famous rumored girlfriend was Olivia Wilde, as both of them tried to have a secret date in disguise in 2011 (via HuffPost). At the time, Wilde had just separated from her then-husband Don Tao dei Principi Ruspoli, and both actors were also seen together at the 2011 Oscars afterparty. Neither Wilde nor Gosling confirmed these reports.

Ryan Gosling has a great family life with his partner Eva Mendes and their daughters, Esmeralda Amada and Amada Lee. However, in September 2011, when Mendes and Gosling began their relationship, he shared with The Times UK that he considered Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams to be two of the greatest girlfriends he’d ever had. Gosling told The Times (via US Magazine):

“I had two of the greatest girlfriend of all time. I haven’t met anybody who could top them.”

Further, the Blue Valentine actor also laid blame on Hollywood for being the reason why both relationships didn’t work out. He explained that the show business aspect took priority in the relationships, hindering the potential for any other aspects to grow. Gosling added:

“Showbusiness is the bad guy. When both people are in show business it’s too much showbusiness. It takes all of the light, so nothing else can grow.”

Notably, Gosling’s relationship with McAdams became highly publicized, especially because they didn’t see eye to eye when they first met. Both had rumored fights on the set of The Notebook, which were later confirmed by the film’s director. They only became a couple sometime after the movie’s release and enjoyed a three-year relationship before parting ways for unknown reasons.

Gosling did not make the same mistakes with Mendes, as the couple is rarely seen together, despite both working in the entertainment industry. More recently, sources close to the couple have indicated that their relationship remains as strong as ever.
