Eva Mendes Talks Body Image With Marie Claire

I Resolved To...
The 5 style resolutions I've already achieved. Read More »

“It doesn’t matter what you have or what you look like. It’s something everyone has to work at. I realize I have contributed to a certain happy, healthy, empowered image, but that’s not all of me. I feel it’s important to let women know that I have similar struggles. What I tell girls is what they don’t like about themselves now, they will probably end up loving as an adult, because that’s what happened to me. When I am complimented on things that I didn’t like when I was 13, like my overbite and my mole, that’s when you realize that your imperfections are why people love you.”

Eva Mendes is on the cover of the March issue of Marie Claire and, inside the mag, talks about her own body image evolution. I quite agree with her — in my list of “Style Resolutions I’ve Already Achieved,” I said that I had come to love and/or appreciate certain “flaws,” like my thin upper lip, thick brown hair, and butt and my overall self-esteem had reaped the rewards. (FYI, Eva also supposedly discussed a certain co-star/boyfriend with the magazine, but upon seeing his name at the link I shut my eyes really quick so as to not break my Goservention rules. Aren’t you proud of me? Please be proud of me. Without your pride, this torture is just not worth it.) [Just Jared]

In the last month, I have not watched any Ryan Gosling movies, even though one night, “The Notebook” and “Blue Valentine” were on at the same time. I haven’t clicked on any links with his name in the headline. Save for my Goservention update posts — and this one, which Julie gave me permission to write — I have not written about Ryan at all on The Frisky. As a result, I’ve started to see the appeal of other men, both famous (Michael Fassbender in “Shame”) and not-so-famous, and have gotten back in touch with who I am without a Ryan Gosling obsession. The other day, Jessica said to me, “It’s been good for you. It’s been good for all of us,” and I kind of wanted to tell her to shut her piehole, but then I realized she was maybe right. Maybe taking a break from Ryan Gosling was good for me. Maybe I had turned a corner and would never … would never need him again.

All of that positive thinking changed this morning, when I read that Time Warner Cable -- my cable provider! — would be making eight of Gosling’s films available On Demand this month, in honor of Valentine’s Day. Keep reading »

“Drive” On (DVD)

Like fast cars, romance, and a killer soundtrack? Like those things even more when they’re accompanied by a hot, man-of-few-words bad boy in a satin jacket with a scorpion emblazoned on it? Well, lucky for you, the sleeper hit of the 2012, “Drive” — starring Amelia’s former boo, Ryan Gosling — just came out on DVD. What are you waiting for? Book it and buy it already. [$16.99, Amazon]

“I actually did hear from [Ryan Gosling] one time. He invited me to a magic show through someone else, and I couldn’t go because I had to go to this charity thing for Amy, and it was like, ‘bros before hos,’ or ‘hos before bros,’ however that phrase goes. I just rhymed a lot. So, yeah. I don’t know what’s in store for me and him. I think he has a girlfriend, but maybe I’ll murder her someday and we’ll be together forever.”

– “Parks and Recreation” star Aubrey Plaza on her lust for Ryan Gosling. It seems Plaza ran into  Gosling in a Jamba Juice earlier this year, but didn’t recognize him, and now really, really regrets it. Also, notice that someone other than Amelia is writing this RG post! The Goservention is working! [NYMag]

So, it’s Day 5 of my life without he who I am not supposed to name but for SEO purposes will name just twice, once in the headline and once here RYAN GOSLING. Last night, I took my first bath without him. By that I mean, I took my first bath, basking in candlelight, drinking wine, without catching up on gossip about him on my iPad. It was hard, but I did it. Continue with me on this journey via the video above. (Please note: this video is SFW.)

At first I felt betrayed. And then I felt smug. This would be a piece of cake going cold turkey! No problem! I don’t need Ryan Gosling. I can go without. But then I started to realize it might not be so simple. Experience all of these emotions — and more! — in my first video blog following my coworkers “Goservention.”
