Ryan Gosling Talks About Eva Mendes at Golden Globes 2017

Ryan Gosling Dedicates His Golden Globe to "Sweetheart" Eva Mendes and Her Late Brother

Ryan Gosling dropped jaws when he attended the Golden Globes in LA on Sunday. Not only did he look handsome as hell in a white tux, but his charm was almost too much handle. After snagging the award for best actor in a musical or comedy for his role in La La Land, Ryan took the stage and gave what might have been the best speech of the night. In addition to thanking his costars, Ryan gave his partner, Eva Mendes, the sweetest shout-out, saying, "I would like to thank one person properly. While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I've ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer. If she hadn't have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me, so sweetheart, thank you."

He also mentioned his kids, adding, "To my daughters, Amada and Esmeralda, I love you." But, perhaps, the most touching part of his speech was when he dedicated his award to Eva's brother who passed away from cancer in April 2016, saying, "And if I may, I'd like to dedicate this to the memory of her brother, Juan Carlo Mendez." Cue the tears!
