Eva and Ryan met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011 and share two daughters, Esmeralda Amada, nine, and Amada Lee, eight. 

On Wednesday, Eva defended Ryan after he received an Academy Award nomination for his role as Ken in Barbie.

Mendes posted a gushing message to her Instagram, describing her pride and the ‘Not My Ken’ jeering he endured in the lead-up to Barbie’s release.

‘So proud of my man,’ Eva posted to Instagram. 

‘So much hate when he took on this role. So many people trying to shame him for doing it. Despite all the #Notmyken ridicule and articles written about him, he created this completely original, hilarious,heartbreaking, now iconic character and took it all the way to Oscars. So beyond proud to be this Ken’s Barbie.’

Gosling was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role – but controversially, lead star Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig failed to receive individual nods. 

On Tuesday, Ryan expressed his fury that the Academy had overlooked his female colleagues in a statement, but fell short of giving up his nomination in protest.

And according to a source close to the Hollywood A-lister, he has no plans to do so.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, the insider said: ‘Ryan is sticking by his statement.

‘He understands people are upset because he is upset as well, but he is not going to be swayed by what anyone is saying online.’

They continued: ‘Ryan is honored that he has been nominated and the film has been nominated.

‘In the chance he does win or if he performs I’m Just Ken, he will honor Margot and Greta in one way or another.’

According to the source, Ryan is doing what is right for his heart, and he has the support of his cast and director.

‘He is not looking to make this into something more than it has become. He spoke about it and people should take what he said seriously because he meant every single word,’ the insider said.

Ryan issued a statement addressing Greta and Margot’s snubs shortly after the Oscar nominations were announced on Tuesday.

He began his statement by expressing gratitude for his nomination, stating: ‘I am extremely honored to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films.’

‘And I never thought I’d being saying this, but I’m also incredibly honored and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken.’

The actor then went on to share his disappointment at Margot and Greta not being nominated, before praising them for their work on the film.

‘Against all odds with nothing but a couple of soulless, scantily clad, and thankfully crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, they broke our hearts, they pushed the culture and they made history,’ he added.

Lastly, he congratulated co-star America Ferrera, who received the Best Supporting Actress nod.

‘Having said that, I am so happy for America Ferrera and the other incredible artists who contributed their talents to making this such a groundbreaking film,’ Ryan said.

Barbie was released in July and raked in a record-breaking $1.45 billion at the global box office, and $636 million domestically.

The box-office smash hit received a total of eight Oscar nominations, though Greta failed to secure a nomination for best director this year, and Margot, who played the title character, was also passed over for best lead actress.
