So smitten she forgot sensible walking shoes!
Eva Mendes and new beau Ryan Gosling took a hike together at L.A.'s Griffith Park Observatory on Sunday. For the pair's romantic trek underneath the famed Hollywood sign, down a steep canyon and back to Mendes' home nearby, the actress, 37, wore chunky platform sandals and a loose, blue mini-dress.
"There's always been a strong chemistry between them," one source explained to Us of the pair. "This was just a matter of time!"
But Mendes probably shouldn't get her hopes up too high. Drive star Gosling recently told UK-based paper The Times that he's still stuck on exes Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams. "I had two of the greatest girlfriend of all time. I haven't met anybody who could top them," he admitted of Bullock (who he dated from 2002-2003) and McAdams (who he dated from 2004-2008).
