In a new interview, Eva Mendes is happy to talk about her style and her upcoming film roles. But she's not happy answering questions about her longtime boyfriend Ryan Gosling.
The Cuban-American beauty shut down in an interview with The Edit, a magazine published by shopping website Net-a-porter, when asked about her two-year relationship. "I'm not trying to be cagey or protective," she says in the interview. Later, she adds, "I'm sorry. I'm shutting down. I'm such a weirdo. I literally lose my ability to speak."

There was one clue that the couple, who met on the set of their movie The Place Beyond the Pines, is still going strong: Ryan's dog George was there, curled up at Eva's feet during the interview. She is often seen walking the pooch in L.A.
