The Internet—and our beating hearts—are in overdrive because of a tabloid rumor that Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are getting back together.
But is this all just pure fantasy coursing through our red-blooded veins?
Like The Notebook, we hate to break this to you, but it looks a lot like mere fiction.
Originating in OK!, the magazine reported that Ryan and his girlfriend Eva Mendes are on the verge of splitting. This is apparently corroborated by the observation that the couple hasn’t been photographed or seen in public together for a while*.
(*Is “a while” three months? Three weeks? Three seconds? That’s the issue with this article: literally no details whatsoever.)
That’s when OK! found a slim window of opportunity to remind their readers of Rachel’s existence as evidence that they must be getting back together again. Seven years later. Just like their characters did in The Notebook.
Other reasons that don’t suggest this is true? Rachel’s been in Hawaii filming a new action comedy and Ryan has yet to visit her. Not even a Gosling sighting by fans on Twitter.
Not to mention that a breakup between Ryan and Eva hasn’t been confirmed.
