Rumors are running rampant this week that Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are back together, or getting back together, following his split with Eva Mendes.
But, like The Notebook, is it more romantic fantasy than reality?
It makes sense that the masses want Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams back together? If they didn't, this isn't a planet we'd want to be living on.
It's also understandable how the rumors popped up. The heart throb actor is said to be on the rocks Eva Mendes, if not broken up with her completely.
Given that, and the fact that Rachel McAdams still exists? A glimmer of possibility was born. A dream was renewed. Hope, once again, sprang eternal.
The only problem with the scenario? There's little evidence to support the idea that it's actually happening, no matter how much you might will it to.
First, his alleged split with Eva Mendes has not even been confirmed.
Second, despite reports that Ryan and Rachel are spending a lot of time together recently, the contrary appears to be the case, as she's in Hawaii filming.
Number of Gosling sightings reported there in recent weeks? Zero.
The so-called "couple" has not been seen in any public capacity in forever, so the idea of a romance, great celebrity gossip as it may be, is a stretch.
There is always a chance, though, and maybe not even that slim.
Although things didn’t last between them, they did manage to save their friendship. Ryan recently said that Rachel is “one of the great loves of my life."
Whatever happens next in their personal notebook of life, there will always be something between them. After all, “some loves you just never forget.”
