On Monday, Eva posted a behind-the-scenes video that showed her getting ready for a photo shoot.

She was seen in glam before taking her place in front of the camera.

In the caption, the Girl in Progress star opened up about one of her biggest insecurities.

“Sometimes I get so nervous to just talk. Yup- just talk,” Eva, who is notoriously private, wrote.

“Growing up bilingual was great but I feel like I never mastered either language.

“So when it comes to expressing myself -I can get super ‘ansiosa’ at times.”

“I’m so grateful to @mossovskaya for helping feel more confident by bringing me clothes that make me feel good, like this @moniquehullier dress and @jimmychoo heels,” the star added.

“Sometimes, only sometimes, confidence can start from the outside in.”

Fans in the comments seemed to resonate with that message.

“I always believed in ‘dressing for the part you want,’ it does wonders for my confidence,” one supporter posted.

“This is very interesting! [English] is my second language and I’m always nervous when I speak it [especially] with my accent,” a second commenter shared.

“So gorgeous and also able to be vulnerable = powerhouse,” a third fan praised.


Although Eva tends to keep her private life far from the spotlight, she has been opening up more as of late.

Over the weekend, the star shared a sweet video made by a fan account dedicated to her husband, Ryan Gosling.

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s Relationship Timeline

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have enjoyed a very private romance for more than a decade. The couple met while working on The Place Beyond the Pines and sparked up a real-life romance. They are now married and have two children.

  • Ryan and Eva met in 2011 while filming The Place Beyond the Pines
  • They spent Thanksgiving together in Paris, France that same year
  • In June 2012, Ryan brought Eva to his mother’s graduation from Brock University
  • They attended the Toronto International Film Festival together a few months later
  • In September 2014, Eva gave birth to their first daughter, whom they named Esmeralda
  • They welcomed their second baby girl in April 2016
  • Eva hinted that she and Ryan were married in November 2022 with a wrist tattoo that reads “de Gosling”
  • She later referred to him as her “husband” on Channel Nine’s Today

The video featured several photos of the couple from early in their relationship.

A cover of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know could be heard playing in the background.

“This kind of love,” was written in the middle of the screen.

They appeared to be looking up at the sky while walking together.

The photos were taken in 2011 in Paris, France.

“Amore, amore, amore,” the caption read.

Fans in the comments gushed over the couple.

“My favorite Hollywood couple,” one person posted.

“So sweet. Love you two,” another praised.

“A gorgeous couple!!! Seriously. A 25 out of 10!” a third fawned.


Eva and Ryan, 43, met in 2011 while working on the film The Place Beyond The Pines.

They have kept the details of their relationship very private.

The actress and her Barbie star husband welcomed their first child, a daughter named Esmeralda, in 2014.

Two years later, they welcomed a second daughter called Amada.

The children are kept out of the spotlight.

“I have always had a clear boundary when it comes to my man and my kids. I’ll talk about them, of course, with limits, but I won’t post pictures of our daily life,” she told People in 2020.

“Since my children are still so little and don’t understand what posting their image really means, I don’t have their consent. And I won’t post their image until they’re old enough to give me consent.”

Eva confirmed that she and Ryan were married in 2022 when she referred to him as her husband during an appearance on Channel 9’s Today.
