Eva Mendes was said to have recently split from Ryan Gosling, but there are rumors floating around the internet suggesting that she was pregnant by the actor. The rumors all started as the result of her taking a flight on an airplane. She declined to go through one of those X-ray scanners and the rest is history.
The reports began to emerge last week after she reportedly told airport security personnel that she couldn’t go through the scanners because of her pregnancy. From her rep we’ve learned that those reports are entirely fabricated and Eva calls the rumors “ridiculous.”
She appears on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, which airs this afternoon, and denies the pregnancy rumors. She revealed to the talk show host, “It all started because I didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked. And not only that, but there’s a radiation aspect to it. So I always opt out. I always ask for a personal pat down. That was good enough reason [for people to assume I’m expecting a baby].”
In November 2013, it was rumored that Eva split from Ryan, but that has yet to be confirmed. Despite that, we don’t think that the former couple will be sharing the love on Valentine’s Day. Eva added, “I’m not a big Valentine’s Day person. I’ll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook or something. Just cry, weep.”
