(LOS ANGELES) — Eva Mendes is pushing back against rumors that she’s split with long-time boyfriend Ryan Gosling, and is pregnant.
Rumors of a breakup after two years of dating began spreading after the two hadn’t been photographed together since October 2013.
The 39-year-old actress seemed to poke fun at the situation, when asked about her plans for Valentine’s Day on Wednesday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I’m not a big Valentine’s Day person. I’ll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook or something,” she quipped. Gosling, 33, starred in the 2004 romantic film, opposite his ex-girlfriend Rachel McAdams.
Mendes also denied she was pregnant and explained how the rumor started. “[I]t all started because I was didn’t want to go through the scanners at the airport,” Mendes explained to host Ellen DeGeneres. “You know those x-ray scanners, which are really creepy. They basically see you naked, right? 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.”
Mendes said that just because she didn’t want to go through TSA scanners, that didn’t mean she was pregnant. “Oh God, no no no! No!” she added.
