Ryan Gosling has been praised by fans after he turned up to the Barbie premier in not only a pink Gucci suit, but also a unique and very sentimental necklace.
Gosling and his co-stars from the highly anticipated flick turned up to the colorful premier in Los Angeles yesterday (9 July) ahead of it release in the next couple of weeks.
When it was Gosling’s turn to walk the carpet, he was spotted wearing a necklace with the letter E on it in the iconic Barbie font - dedicated to his wife Eva Mendes - who sadly couldn't attend the premiere.
Fans were quick to heap praise on Gosling's sweet gesture, making husbands and boyfriends everywhere feel even more inadequate.
“Ryan Gosling wearing an 'E' necklace in a barbie font for Eva Mendes because she isn’t at the premiere must be the most romantic thing i’ve seen... i’m not crying you are," one fan tweeted
While another said: “Ryan Gosling wearing that E necklace; i’m dying dead on the ground you’ve killed me.”
And it seems Gosling isn't the only one fond of cute gestures, as Mendes also has a tattoo on her wrist that says “de gosling” - as do we all Eva, as do we all.
Gosling and Mendes have worked hard to keep their private lives just that - Mendes reportedly isn’t keen on press attention or premiers and prefers to enjoy time with her two daughters at home instead.
Gosling told Entertainment Tonight his daughter had 'seen a lot pieces of [the film], and helped me a lot with it', saying: "They were huge inspiration for me."
In 2014, they welcomed their first child Esmeralda - and in 2016, Amada came along. The pair then announced they had secretly wed in 2022.
Mendes spoke to Women’s Health and talked about her reasonings for keeping her children out of the media world, explaining: “The whole fame component is super scary when you try to raise your kids.”
A profile for PEOPLE also gave an insight into how the two movie stars live behind closed doors
“Ryan’s the cook. He’s an incredible cook,” Mendes said to the outlet. “I think that there’s a really nice balance to ‘You cook, I clean'. And it just works for us.”
Barbie is set to be one of the biggest films coming to cinemas this year and you can be sure to see fans rocking their own signature necklaces on 21 July!
