On-screen sweethearts Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes proved they were every bit the real-life couple as they were photographed on the red carpet at their new film”s New York premiere on Thursday night.
The pair, who started dating in 2011 after filming their latest movie A Place Beyond The Pines, complemented one another with vintage-inspired outfits.
Eva, 39, wore a vibrant orange Prada dress embellished with butterfly and rose detailing. The American actress completed her outfit with copper-coloured Prada shoes and a matching clutch bag. She wore statement jewellery including an eye-catching oversized turquoise ring by designer Lorraine Schwartz.
Her Notebook actor beau was dapper in a dark velvet suit and a wide black tie.
The film might be the last opportunity that fans see Oscar-nominated Ryan, 32, in front of the camera for a while. After he stars in Only God Forgives later this year, he will take a break from acting and turn his talent to directing. The former child star recently signed up to direct dark fantasy film How to Catch a Monster.
“I”ve lost perspective on what I”m doing,” he said. “I think it”s good for me to take a break and reassess why I”m doing it and how I”m doing it.
“And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.”
They were joined on the red carpet by heartthrob co-star Bradley Cooper, 38, who smiled for the cameras wearing a three piece suit. Despite being in the US, The Hangover actor”s rumoured new love Suki Waterhouse did not attend the event.
The trio were at the Big Apple”s Landmark Sunshine Cinema for the screening of the family crime drama which is directed by Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance. Ryan plays Luke, a motorcycle stunt rider who resorts to robbing banks to provide for his lover, Romina, played by Eva, and their newborn baby. Bradley plays a police officer named Avery.
Although Ryan and Eva had met prior to filming the family crime drama in 2011, it was in September of that year that the pair were spotted dating publicly.
