We were planning on having a relaxing Sunday, but those plans were promptly dashed as soon as this story dropped into our lap. After six months of nonstop lolly-gagging (we hate the word “canoodling”), Ryan Gosling and his equally gorgeous partner Eva Mendes have decided to spend some time apart. Though the decision, reports say, was actually made by Gosling who apparently told friends of the couple he needed some space for “time to think”.
The outward appearances of Gosling and Mendes seemed pretty serious, with her making frequent trips out to Thailand to visit him on the set of an upcoming movie. But it seems the weight of being the biggest heartthrob of the moment, (or perhaps watching former flame Rachel McAdams in The Vow), has pushed Gosling over the edge. So to clear his head, he did what anyone would do in this situation — he flew to South Africa and had dinner with a German model. Luckily for him, he can do no wrong in our eyes. We just wonder who’ll be pegged next as The Luckiest Woman in the World.
