Ryan Gosling was reportedly involved in a heated exchange with a photographer who called the acting stud's girlfriend 'baby'.
Ryan and Eva were in New York for the premiere of their new movie The Place Beyond The Pines when the alleged incident occurred. The real life couple were at the Bowery Hotel in the city on Friday when a fashion photographer who had recently shot Mendes saw her and shouted, “Hey, baby!”
“Ryan completely flipped out, and it got heated,” says an eyewitness to the New York Post.
“Ryan got in the guy’s face and said, ‘Who are you calling baby?’ Eva had to jump in and calm everyone down before it came to fisticuffs. Ryan then made nice and shook the guy’s hand.”

Whilst the reports are yet to be confirmed, the couple are known for valuing their privacy. The pair, who have been dating since last September, worked hard to keep their relationship under wraps at a party for their film in NYC the night before the alleged incident.
Gosling brought his mother as his date and arrived and left separately from Mendes, says a source, with the actress turning up at the bash 45 minutes later than the rest of the cast.
“I didn’t see Eva and Ryan interact once,” says the insider “They stayed at opposite ends of the room from one another.”
Things might not be completely rosy for the couple though as repors emerged this week that Eva is "fuming" over phone calls Rachel McAdams is making to her ex-boyfriend Ryan following the actress' break up with Twilight star Michael Sheen.
Ryan and Rachel dated on and off for years, from 2005 to 2007 and then again in 2008 after first falling in love while filming the 'Notebook' and Eva is said to be unimpressed the Wedding Crashers star is calling up her man:
“Rachel’s always kept in touch with Ryan, but now that she’s split with Michael, she’s been calling him and using him as a shoulder to cry on,” a source told Now magazine. “It hasn’t gone down very well with Eva, to say the least, but Ryan wants to be there as a friend for his ex.”
