Looks like Eva is keeping her man in the place beyond the pines. If you follow the movie star on Instagram, you may have noticed that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s relationship is kept incredibly private, and she just revealed why.

Mendes doesn’t hold back from interacting with her 2.1 million Instagram followers on the social media platform and often responds to sweet messages from them with love.

A fan recently left a sweet comment on one of the star’s posts saying, “ I love Ryan so much and love his movies. When I follow you on Instagram, I fall in love with you because you are simple and humble, you respond to your fans' comments with love, and I think Ryan is a lucky person because there is a beautiful woman in his life like you. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you a happy life for you and your children...I wish you can read my comment ❤️❤️”.

The 46-year-old not only read her fan’s words, but also responded to them with some sweet words of her own. “@sanataee hi Sana! thank you for such a beautiful comment!! Sending you love right back! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️!!!!” she wrote.

Because her husband doesn’t have an Instagram page of his own, many people rely on Mendes to share sweet photos of her and Gosling so they can get their fix of the Canadian star.

According to Just Jared, a fan recently commented on one of the Hitch actress’s photos, asking for an appearance from Gosling on her page.

Mendes replied to the fan, saying, “As far as Ryan, I’ll only post flashbacks of things that are already ‘out there’ (like pics from movies we did or stuff like that). My man and kids are private. That’s important to me so thanks for getting that. Have a beautiful day. Sending so much love!,” Just Jared reports.

It turns out that Gosling has more in common with Ryan Reynolds than just their nationality and first name — Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively also keep their children out of the spotlight as much as possible.

According to his IMDb page, the 39-year-old’s most recent projects include the 2019 TV movie My Favourite Shapes and the 2018 film First Man. It’s unclear what, or when, his next big project will be.
