With Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes potentially headed for splitsville, is George Clooney positioning himself to pounce?
Bachelor extraordinaire George Clooney is no stranger to Hollywood beauties, and most of these said Hollywood beauties would jump — no pun intended — on the opportunity to not be a stranger to him. So with rumors of an Eva Mendes/Ryan Gosling split heating up Hollywood, is the 52-year-old hunk looking to court the 39-year-old siren? We can picture the babies already.
George Clooney & Eva Mendes Dating Rumors — Why He’s Interested
If Eva comes back on the market, she might just be the perfect option for George. She is, of course, stunning looks-wise, but beyond that she is also a very talented and successful actress, plus she has that Latin look that the Gravity star loves (remember Elisabetta Canalis?). It’s really not surprising to hear that he’s been crushing on her for years, according to a source close to George who gave an interview to the National Enquirer.
“George would give his right arm to date Eva,” the insider reveals. “He’s run into her a few times over the years and loves her energy. He says he could talk to her about anything since she’s hugely intellectual, and he’s turned on by her smarts.”
Yum, yum, yum! There definitely seems to be potential on George’s side. Let’s hope Eva is just as keen!
Will Ryan Gosling And Eva Mendes Split?
Of course this dreamy potential couple is only in the running if Eva splits from her current beautiful boyfriend, 33-year-old Ryan.
“[George] would never be disrespectful and pursue anyone else’s girlfriend,” the source insists. “But he’s sent the word out that he’d date her in a heartbeat if she becomes officially single and is interested in him.”
So are Ryan and Eva actually coming to an end? Nothing is official, but the couple reportedly broke up over the 2013 holidays due to Eva’s commitment issues.
Wait, what? Commitment issues? Now we know she and George are perfect for each other. Stand by, HollywoodLifers — and in the meantime, let us know what you think of the potential new pairing below!
