Washington: Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, who faced a number of breakup rumours last month, are most decidedly still on but the actor is not ready to play house just yet, it has been revealed.
The couple of seven-plus months squashed the rumours with a hand-holding coffee run near Gosling’s East Village NYC pad May 10.
Still, things got complicated for the twosome in late April, when Gosling grew distant.
According to a pal, the actress confronted Mendes.
“He says he wants to slow down and not live with her yet,” Us magazine quoted an insider as saying.
“But he doesn’t want to lose her,” the insider said.
The news of the Hollywood couple’s romance broke between ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ costars back in September 2011, when they were photographed on an adorable, PDA-packed visit to Disneyland.
The fun continued through this spring, when Mendes tagged along with Gosling to Thailand, where he shot ‘Only God Forgives’ and she cooked up a storm for her man.
“This was a girl who once couldn’t make pasta!” the pal added.
