Eva Mendes Reacts to 'Babe' Emily Blunt Kissing Her Husband Ryan Gosling in 'The Fall Guy'

Eva Mendes gives her stamp of approval on her man kissing 'babe' Emily Blunt in 'The Fall Guy.'

Eva Mendes took to Instagram on earlier this week to share a promotional image from Ryan Gosling's latest film, The Fall Guy. The image features her partner, 43-year-old Gosling, sharing an onscreen kiss with his co-star, Emily Blunt, 41. 

Mendes' caption cleverly highlighted the movie's unique position in the summer box office lineup, noting, "The FIRST non-superhero movie to open the summer box office in 17 years."

Mendes' lighthearted tone continued as she expressed her pride in the film, even though it didn’t break box office records. "And maybe it didn’t break the box office but it broke sooo many other records. I’m extra proud of this one," she wrote.

Mendes added a humorous note about Gosling and Blunt's kissing scene, writing, "The proof is in my post—I don’t usually post pics of my man kissing a babe but Emily Blunt is just that damn good in it. THEY’RE that damn good in it."

The 50-year-old actress actress and entrepreneur, who has been in a relationship with Gosling since 2011, further celebrated The Fall Guy by sharing posts from X (formerly Twitter) where fans praised her guy's performance.

And this isn’t Mendes' first time supporting Gosling’s career. In an Instagram post earlier this month, she urged her Instagram followers to grab tickets for The Fall Guy, where Gosling plays a Hollywood stuntman tasked with tracking down the main star of the movie he is filming.

Throughout the press tour -- which included an appearance on Saturday Night Live in early April and an action-filled red carpet premiere in Hollywood -- Gosling and Mendes have gone back and forth showing support for each other, including one interview where the La La Land actor wore a T-shirt advertising his wife's upcoming children's book, Desi, Mami, and the Never-Ending Worries

Meanwhile, Mendes has used her social media page to share a side-by-side photo of herself and her guy in matching metallic gold outfits. Gosling's photo comes from a scene in The Fall Guy, where he sports a futuristic space cowboy look, while Mendes' hails from a recent photoshoot. 

"Do you believe in happy endings ?" Mendes wrote. "Aliana & Space Cowboy together at last. If you know, you know…. @thefallguymovie❤️." 

"We do! @evamendes ❤️🙌❤️," responded The Fall Guy director David Leitch. 

"Swoooooon 😍😍😍," added Teresa Palmer, the actress who plays Iggy Starr in the action-comedy.

In recent years, Mendes and Gosling have emerged as a fan-favorite celebrity couple for their adorable and hilarious references to each other, both on social media and off. During Gosling's Barbie press tour, Mendes made it clear that she is Gosling's no. 1 fan, even clapping back at the haters after her man received an Academy Award nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role as Ken. 

"So proud of my man," Mendes wrote in January. "So much hate when he took on this role. So many people trying to shame him for doing it. Despite all the #Notmyken ridicule and articles written about him, he created this completely original, hilarious, heartbreaking, now iconic character and took it all the way to Oscars."

She added, "So beyond proud to be this Ken's Barbie."

After the actor gave a show-stopping rendition of "I'm Just Ken" at the 2024 Oscars, the actress congratulated her guy and hilariously asked him to get back so they could put their daughters -- Esmeralda Amada Gosling, 9, and Amada Lee Gosling, 8 -- to bed. 

"You took Ken all the way to the Oscar's, RG. Now come home, we need to put the kids to bed. 💋," she captioned a photo of herself backstage at the Academy Awards wearing Gosling's pink blazer from the show. 

As he kicked off promoting The Fall Guy, Gosling appeared on SNL, where he repaid the favor to his wife and the mother of his children in a sketch, in which he played the husband of a Cuban woman who had his life completely turned around after getting with her. 

"I'm Dominican, he's Cuban," cast member Kenan Thompson says in the skit, pointing at Marcello Hernandez before turning to Gosling and saying, "and he is from Tennessee but ever since he married a Cuban woman, he's different."

"A Cuban wife done change you," Gosling's character responds in a thick accent, purportedly referencing Mendes' Cuban heritage. "But now, I talk like a Cuban papi."

Mendes acknowledged the sketch and the meta reference in a post of her own days later, agreeing with the sentiment and the joke completely. 

"Coño! My Cuban Papi made this Cuban Mami so happy with this!! Years of hanging out with my Dad paid off," the Ghost Rider actress wrote on Instagram. "Gracias to the super talented @marcellohdz for this skit. The way you say 'Eva Mendes' 😂! And @kenanthompson always crushing."
