Ryan Goslingcan now add "devoted and loyal husband" to his resume IRL (you know, along with Oscar-nominated actor and Hollywood hunk) and Ryan Gosling's Barbie premiere jewelrywas a sneaky shout-out to Eva Mendes.
This is in contrast to a recently released sneak peek at Greta Gerwig's Barbie, which revealed that Ken's only job is "beach."
Take, for example... Gosling arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of what is surely the most talked about film of the year on Sunday evening wearing a pink-on-pink look that also featured a sweet shoutout to his wife, Eva Mendes.
The film in question is "La La Land," and it is certain to be the most talked about film of the year.
The actor attended the event without his girlfriend because he and Mendes keep their relationship notoriously private. However, the star made sure to pay tribute to his girlfriend in a way that was extremely understated.
Gosling's stylist Mark Avery revealed to the red carpet reporter for Instyle, Kirbie Johnson, that the monogram pendant on Gosling's necklace is actually an 'E' for Eva, despite the fact that it may look like a 'B' as in Barbie.
Gosling accessorized his look with some adorable jewelry and wore it with a pastel pink pantsuit, which he wore over an even lighter pink button-up shirt (which he wore unbuttoned, because of course), and he completed the look with a pair of white leather dress shoes.
During the Barbie press tour, Gosling has been showing off his Kennismsby wearing a carefully curated collection of outfits, very similar to what his on-screen counterpart, Margot Robbie, has been wearing to show off her Kennisms.
The actor made a stop in Canada, his home country, and while there he wore a baby blue suit that Ken had approved, which he layered over a light pink button-up shirt and styled with lavender-colored Gucci loafers.

His recent appearances in the press have demonstrated, beyond a reasonable doubt, that he was the ideal candidate to play this part. In an interview with GQ, Gosling defended his casting choice, despite the fact that some people thought the actor was too old to play the role of Ken. He said:
I would say, you know, if people don’t want to play with my Ken, there are many other Kens to play with. It is funny…this kind of clutching-your-pearls idea of, like, #notmyken. Like you ever thought about Ken before this?... But suddenly, it’s like, ‘No, we’ve cared about Ken this whole time.’ No, you didn’t. You never did. You never cared. Barbie never fucked with Ken. That’s the point. If you ever really cared about Ken, you would know that nobody cared about Ken. So your hypocrisy is exposed. This is why his story must be told.- Ryan Gosling
