So it would have made sense for his partner to join him, right? But instead, Ryan arrived on the red carpet on the arm of his big sister Mandi.

There’s since been a whole lot of speculation about what this could mean.

As LOOK recently reported, Mandi was also Ryan’s date for the 2007 Academy Awards, when he was in a relationship with Rachel McAdams. Just a few months later, it was confirmed the pair had broken up. Eeeep.

But we may not need to worry about Ryan and Eva, who have daughters Esmeralda and Amada together.

Eva, 43, has actually given a very simple explanation for her absence, telling Shape: ‘What people don’t know about me is that I love being home. Instead of hitting the red carpet, I’d rather be with our girls.’

Aw. Eva’s also opened up about how home life – and her body – has changed since she became a mum.

She continues: ‘In some ways, it’s been more challenging to get back in shape after my second daughter.

‘Yet it’s not as hard as I thought it would be, because I’m always running around with the kids. I never sit down—I’m on the move all day.

‘I don’t keep junk food at home anymore, because I’m trying to set a good example. So there are no more Krispy Kremes for me to grab.

‘There is this app called Postmates that delivers whatever you want in minutes. It’s almost as bad as having the food in your kitchen. Don’t laugh, but they’re on the way here right now!

‘Sweets are my thing. It’s ongoing, and I have to manage my sugar cravings constantly.’

We TOTALLY get you, lady.
