Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes did not break up, so don't get excited.
Suddenly, millions of women who are usually completely rational found themselves thinking "Gosling is single? Now I totally have a chance!" It's okay, ladies. It happens to the best of us.
Unfortunately for us but fortunately for Mendes, the whole thing was a bunch of baloney.
In fact, Gosling has been in Bangkok for weeks (that's why he missed awards season and deprived us of the opportunity to drool over him in a tux), where he's filming "Only God Forgives." And he definitely didn't leave for the weekend for a rendezvous in South Africa -- because Mendes was in Bangkok, with him. They were photographed together as recently as Thursday.
You can put away your in-case-of-Gosling LBD now, girls. Sigh.
