Ryan Gosling, 42, Reveals Why He Broke Up With Sandra Bullock, 59, Who Was His “Greatest Girlfriend of All Time”

10 months ago

Sandra is 16 years older than Ryan, nevertheless, that didn’t prevent them from falling in love. It could have been a moving story about a great couple, but the stars broke up shortly after they started dating. It wasn’t because of disagreements or differences — Ryan Gosling himself revealed the sad reason.

Ryan and Sandra dated for 2 years.

The stars met in 2001 on a movie set. Sandra Bullock starred as the cop who was chasing Ryan Gosling, who played a young and wealthy suspect. They hit it off right from the start and began dating. Later, they made a public appearance as a couple during the movie’s premiere in Cannes.

Their age gap didn’t matter.

The ex-couple didn’t care about their 16-year age gap. At the time, Gosling was 21, and was a complete beginner in the movie industry. Bullock, on the other hand, was already an experienced 37-year-old actress.

They eventually had to break up.


Sandra and Ryan had great chemistry, however, their careers ruined their romance. They split in 2003 because of their busy schedules. Ryan says, “Show business is the bad guy. When both people are in show business, it’s too much show business. It takes all of the light, so nothing else can grow.”

Even though the stars didn’t make it, Ryan still has some awesome memories of their time together. He thinks those 2 years they spent as a couple were some of the best moments in his life. He reminisces about past relationships with Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams, “I had 2 of the greatest girlfriends of all time. I haven’t met anybody who could top them.”

Now he’s married to Eva Mendes.

Ryan and Eva have kept their relationship very low-key throughout the years. They first met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines in 2011, where their on-screen romance eventually led to an off-screen relationship. Since then, they’ve become one of Hollywood’s most enduring couples.

Ryan and Sandra parted ways. Now, he couldn’t be happier with Eva Mendes. However, things aren’t so bright for Sandra. Her beloved husband passed away not so long ago. In this article, she breaks her silence and reveals why she never married “the love of her life.”

We're too busy to date each other, but apparently not to busy to then start dating someone else. More likely they lost interest in each other
