Ryan Gosling has always had a reputation for being a knight in shining armour. He built a house with his bare hands in The Notebook, fought off the bad guys in Drive, and broke up a REAL fight in New York in 2011. Now, he’s come to the aid of his gorgeous girlfriend Eva Mendes after a photographer referred to her as ‘baby’ over the weekend.
In the alleged incident, Ryan and Eva were promoting their new movie The Place Beyond The Pines at the Bowery Hotel when a fashion photographer called out to Eva, saying: “Hey baby!”.
The pair had recently worked together on a fashion shoot, so it’s not unusual for the snapper to be affectionate towards the star. But according to the New York Post, Ryan was NOT a happy bunny.
An eyewitness tells the paper: “Ryan completely flipped out, and it got heated.
“Ryan got in the guy’s face and said, ‘Who are you calling baby?’ Eva had to jump in and calm everyone down before it came to fisticuffs. Ryan then made nice and shook the guy’s hand.”
Amazing. The exact same thing happened in our dreams… ahem. RM
