Congrats to Ryan Gosling’s mom, Donna, who just got her teacher’s degree from Brock University! How wonderful. Ryan, who loves his mom so much that he usually brings her as his date to awards shows, went to Donna’s graduation and brought girlfriend Eva Mendes with him. Someone in the audience noticed and posted this photo to their Instagram. Look at how pissed my man is. I think his nostrils are flaring. Eva, on the other hand, is straight up gleeful. Let’s caption this photo with thought bubbles! Here are mine. [Dlisted]
Drew Barrymore just got married for the third time — to art dealer Will Kopelman — and has a long dating history in Hollywood. But I was totally surprised to learn she once went on a date with Christian Bale (pre-”Dark Knight” and well-known rage issues). ”We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it,” Bale told GQ Australia.

I’m kind of bummed things didn’t go further with these two. Going out with Bale again could have been a real “Sliding Doors” moment for them both; would she have gone through her flower child/boob-flashing phase if she had fallen in love with him? Run around with Courtney Love? Would his career have taken a backseat to hers, like that of so many of her previous boyfriends? Maybe getting turned down by Drew is what set Bale on the path towards becoming Batman!
This got me thinking about other celeb couples that might have been. Here are nine other pairs that are rumored to have gone out once or twice, but never made it official. Let’s imagine what might have been if they had…
I can already predict the chorus of “love it!” and “hate it!” responses to Drew Barrymore’s choice of wedding dress. It’s conservative, but it’s also Chanel. I can’t knock it. But most importantly — her bouquet is made up of peonies! So jealz. [People via Celeb Dirty Laundry]

So … it looks like Sharon Stone had a good Memorial Day Weekend. The actress has been enjoying time with her new dude, 27-year-old Argentinean model Martin Mica. They literally seem to be head over heels for each other. It’s the kind of love that makes you wanna break out in a spontaneous yoga poses! That’s something special. The two engaged in some hardcore frolicking on Venice Beach yesterday. Click through to see more of their carefree day at the beach. I’m not even gonna bring up their age difference because A) Who cares? and B) I support people in states of pure, unadulterated bliss. I’m nothing but happy for them (and slightly jealous).
