The couple has been together for eight years after they met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines.
Eva wants to make sure that her daughters have a strong role model in her.
She said, ''What I try to emphasise is that I don't let them see me put attention to how I dress. They've never seen me get ready for something; they've never seen me at work.''
She continued, ''Which is fine, for whoever wants to do it that way, but the way I keep it normal is by not letting them see me in these situations. I'm just Mom. And I'm more than happy to just be Mom.''
Valentine's Day can either be the most swoon-worthy event in the calendar year for loved-up couples, or a Hallmark-card disaster for the broken hearted.
Whether you'll be heading on a candelit-dinner date with roses or cuddling up with your pet on the couch, we can all use a little romantic-comedy movie magic.
We've created a list of our film favourites for the loveliest day of the year…enjoy ladies.
1. Set It Up
Harper and Charlie, played by Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell, are plagued by cruel and hugely demanding bosses, until they decide to join forces and essentially trick them into falling in love with each other.
The biggest project of their young careers ensues, as their bosses will only fall for each other around their tight schedules, but will Harper and Charlie make a connection too?
Lucy Liu steals scenes as Kristen, Harper's insanely scary sports reporter boss. This movie is one of our favourite rom-coms ever, it somehow banishes clichés while remaining lovable at the same time.
2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before
The massively popular film is based on Jenny Han's trilogy, The Summer I Turned Pretty, and the Netflix movie caused quite the stir since its release.
Starring the adorable Lana Condor and Noah Centineo as teenagers who pretend to date in order to solve one young girl's letter-related disaster, you'll fall in love with this feature.
Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control when the five love letters written privately to every boy she’s ever loved are mysteriously mailed out, despite the fact that they were hidden in her bedroom…
3. La La Land
Who could forget this stunning movie from Academy Award-nominee Damien Chazelle.
La La Land tells the breathtakingly beautiful story of Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, struggle to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts.
The unique musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams; Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are unbelievable in their acting prowess and chemistry in this tale of love in LA.
4. Valentine's Day (of course)
Yet another American rom-com from veteran film-maker Gary Marshall; Valentine's Day shows a series of interconnected stories of L.A. residents (celebrities) who go through the highs and lows of love on Valentine's Day.
From first dates, long-time marriages, old flames and new crushes, the stories will melt your heart like Ben & Jerrys on the couch.
The all-star cast consists of Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Kathy Bates, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, Anne Hathaway, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, and even Taylor Swift in her acting debut.
5. The Notebook
The Nicholas Sparks classic that has everyone reaching for the tissues, and which launched Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams from obscurity to stardom.
The pair also fell in love in real life while filming, so it's even more special.
Based in 1940s South Carolina, mill worker Noah falls for rich girl Allie but her parents force them apart. Noah leaves to serve in the second World War, and Allie finds love elsewhere. When Noah returns to their small town, their romance is far from over.
6. Crazy, Stupid, Love
Ryan Gosling just can't escape this round-up list, can he?
The hilarious and heart-warming film follows Cal, played by Steve Carell, as he undergoes a divorce from his wife Emily, played by Julianne Moore. Cal is still desperately in love with Emily, and his life is unravelling until he discovers Emily's infidelity.
Single at the age of 40, he finds Jacob (The charming Ryan Gosling), a handsome and youthful seducer who teaches Cal how to flirt with women again. Jacob is a bachelor of sorts, until his consistent co-star Emma Stone comes into the forefront. The pair really do sizzle on-screen together, but maybe it's just Ryan Gosling and anyone?
7. The Fault In Our Stars
Based on the critically-acclaimed YA book by John Green, the film follows Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley), a young teenager diagnosed with cancer.
The 16-year-old meets and falls in love with Gus Waters, played by Ansel Elgort, after meeting him in a cancer support group.
Gus uses his invitation to meet Hazel's favourite author, Peter Van Houten, and brings her to Amsterdam to meet the recluse. Their love story becomes entangles by health problems, with often tragic circumstances. This one's a certified tear-jerker.
8. About Time

Tim resolves to change his life by getting himself a girlfriend, Mary. Rachel McAdams plays his love interest, who falls in love with him after time-travel ensues.
As life goes on, Tim figures out that his special ability can't save himself or those he loves from ordinary and mundane human problems.
9. P.S I Love You
The movie that led to Gerard Butler apologising for the butchering of an Irish accent; Hillary Swank plays his co-star and widow, who finds a series of messages that serve to guide her new life.
Starting on her thirtieth birthday, Holly Kennedy receives the first in a series of letters written by her late husband, designed to ease her grief and encourage her to move forward after his tragic death.
Parts of it are filmed in Ireland, with stunning scenery and endless romance from Cecelia Ahern's novel.
10. The Holiday
Normally watched at Christmas, The Holiday also serves as a perfect flick to watch on the most romantic day of the year.
It's got Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet swapping houses, it's got Los Angeles and English countryside scenery, sunshine and snow, Jack Black and Jude Law; basically everything.
Depressed and suffering from unrequited love, Iris agrees to swap homes with similarly unlucky-in-love Californian Amanda for a break. Of course, both lovelorn ladies bump into local lads and sparks fly. Utterly romantic…
11. Love, Rosie
We can't curate a list of love-themed films without including Love, Rosie.

12. Maid in Manhattan
Jennifer Lopez at her best.
The classic New York City-based flick follows a mother-of-one, Marisa Ventura, who lives in the boroughs and works as a maid in a top Manhattan hotel.
A twist of fate leads to her identity being mistaken for that of a wealthy socialite, and she meets Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes), the heir to a political dynasty.
He has no idea who she really is, but the pair fall deeply in love. When her identity is revealed, their worlds couldn't be further apart. Will their love withstand?
We're in LOVE with this list, maybe we'll skip that date and just binge-watch all 11 of these in a row?
All we need is chocolate, candles and a fluffy pet to keep us warm for the perfect movie night.
Happy Valentine's Day gals, don't forget to treat yourselves.
They later reconnect, and the tale flicks between the 20th century and modern day, where the protagonist chronicles how time has impacted their lives in a tragic way.
Despite mediocre initial film reviews, the movie became a smash hit which has remained iconic in the romantic-drama genre.
Gosling and McAdams were relatively unknown at the time of filming, but their chemistry was undeniably. The pair met on set, and dated from 2005 until 2007, and again in 2008 before splitting up for good.
It's Friday, the weekend and a night made for a deserved glass of wine and with must-watch TV (unless, you know, you have an actual social life).
Our favourite host Graham Norton is back tonight to kick-start a brand new series of his loved show. We've missed you – and your amazing line-up of guests! – in our living rooms, Graham!
Here's all you need to know about this evening's round-up and all the guests who will be appearing – it's going to be SO GOOD.
Two incredible leading ladies will be an appearance on that famous red couch. The ever-talented Lady Gaga will talk all things about her new (already Oscar-hyped) film A Star is Born and formidable actress Jodie Whittaker will talk about her much-discussed role in Doctor Who; she is the first female to ever take the leading role of the Time Lord.
And gals, just wait for it.
Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling and Rod Stewart will ALL sit alongside them.
An all star line up on tonights Graham Norton show.
In case you were tuned into anything else at the time, Ryan Gosling appeared on The Graham Norton Show last night, and it made for some hilarious viewing.
While sandwiched between Harrison Ford, Reese Witherspoon and Margot Robbie, the 36-year-old actor was coerced into a recalling a time from his youth he'd clearly rather forget.
Drawing the La La Land actor out, Graham Norton suggested there was once a time when Ryan's parents had aspirations for him in the world of sales.
Sounding genuinely bemused by the memory, Ryan revealed that his parents once happened up a large supply of cellophane and thought nothing of recruiting their young son as the commercial spokesman for their supply.
From remembering how he peddled it to teachers to recalling how he spun it to students, Ryan's discomfort is palpable… and hilarious.
After his performance in La La Land, we think he'd be a perfect fit for the crazy, yet lovable, character.
Even though the storyline to the prequel has not been confirmed, it has been reported that it will surround the life of a young Willy Wonka, and how he became friends with the Oompa Loompas during one of his early adventures.
The La La Land / Moonlight mix-up during the 89th Academy Awards will go down in Oscar history, not least because of Ryan Gosling's somewhat surprising reaction to learning he had not, in fact, bagged himself a little gold statue as audience members and viewers understood.
While many would have understood a disappointed or even frustrated response from La La Land's leading man, Ryan surprised fans by giggling into his sleeve after word landed that the musical had been awarded Best Picture in error.
Standing among stunned cast and crew on stage, Ryan attempted to hide a smirk behind his hand, but now, one month on, is at pains to explain his odd reaction.
"What really was happening as I was watching, it was surreal anyway, I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and guys were coming on with headsets and I felt like someone had been hurt," he said.
Speaking to People magazine, the 36-year-old insisted that his reaction was one of relief because the initial chaos led him to believe that someone had been taken ill.
"I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head," he said when reflecting on the confusion which played out in front of millions of viewers worldwide.
Recalling the moment it all became clear, he said: "And then I just heard Moonlight won and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”
And lest there be any confusion over his response to the loss, he added: "Truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won. I know the director. I’ve worked with them before. I’m so happy for them that they were being recognised."
So, now we know.
Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!
Sure for the first five minutes, you wonder how it’s all going to pan out. After another ten minutes of La La Land, you really start to like what you see. And after 30 minutes – well, then you are just ALL OVER musical films forever more.
2) You will covet the weather
It’s Ireland; it’s February. It’s chilly and damp and a bit dreary. What better time to inject a spot of LA sunshine and light into our lives? It’s practically a health treatment…
Maybe not with your date – but certainly with the loved-up duo that is Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Their chemistry = ah-maze-ing! This is their third film together (the others being Gangster Squad, and Crazy, Stupid, Love) and, yup, they’re once again pretty much perfect.
4) You will sing
Stick the soundtrack on Spotify in the aftermath and truthfully, you will listen and sing along to little else for weeks.
Dancing With The Stars has its merits, sure. But what you experience in La La Land is approximately 1,000 times better than anything seen on a celebrity-infused reality TV show.
6) You will dream
La La Land is all about making dreams come true. And every one of us – deep down – is a bit of a dreamer, right? This is a movie that offers beautiful escapism, making you feel all warm and fuzzy and happy inside at the same time.
Just days after getting over the remarks John Krasinkski made about his wife Emily Blunt during a recent interview, Ryan Gosling is after flooring us with comments he made about his partner Eva Mendes.
In an interview with GQ, the Notebook actor revealed that the reality of family life has, in fact, exceeded his greatest expectations.
Ryan, who share two daughters with the Hitch actress, said: "Your whole life, you hear what it's like to have kids, and all the clichés are true."
"I felt I knew that everything would be different, but until you experience that, there's no way to really know what people mean," he continued.
Paying tribute to Eva as a mother, he added: "Eva's the dream mother, and they're the dream babies. It's like a dream that I'm having right now. I'm dreaming it all."
Having welcomed his first child in 2014, the actor says her arrival signalled a profound change on his approach to life, explaining: "When you meet your kids you realise that they deserve great parents."
"And then you have your marching orders and you have to try and become the person that they deserve. There was nothing kind of premeditated about it, you know."
Reflecting on the impact Eva, Esmerelda and Amada have had on him, he added: "It just suddenly was: My life had changed. And thank God it did."
Late last year, it was announced that Gilmore Girls would be making its long-awaited on-screen comeback in the form of four 90 minute Netflix episodes.
Ever since the news broke, trickles of information about the highly anticipated reboot have been fed to fans along with nostalgia-inducing trivia about the original show.
The latest instalment of this trivia features one of Hollywood’s hottest heartthrobs.
Speaking at The Gilmore Girls Fan Festival this weekend, casting director Jami Rudofsky revealed that Ryan Gosling almost landed a role in the hit Warner Bros. series.
“When I was a very wee casting person, I was casting an independent movie for no money,” explained Jami.
“This guy came in, and he was late, and I rolled my eyes because he was late, and he was blonde. I thought he was giving attitude ― what I didn’t realise was that he was in character. He did the audition, and it was one of the most amazing auditions that I’ve ever seen.”
On the back of this incident, The Notebook star was invited to audition for a football player role in Gilmore Girls but – in a scenario which pretty much alters the history of GG fans’ lives – his audition failed to impress.
“[I’d] kept him in my mind, and I was thinking ‘I can’t wait for them to meet him.’ And I am talking him up,” continued Jami.
“So he came in, I think it was a football character? I don’t even remember…He auditioned, and it kind of fell flat.”
With that heart wrenching piece of history in mind, watching Gilmore Girlsthis November is going to be beyond emosh.
