Seems Ryan Gosling can't go anywhere without causing a commotion. Earlier this week Gosling and Eva Mendes attended Gosling's mother's college graduation ceremony. The couple tried to stay under the radar, sitting near the back of the auditorium, but their cover was blown when people starting tweeting that the couple was in attendance and starting snapping photos of the two and posting them online. When Gosling's mom's name was called, the actor stood up and cheered. By the time Gosling and Mendes went to leave the ceremony, fans had formed a line outside. When approached by a reporter, Gosling declined the interview, saying, "This is my mom's day." Is it us or is this guy too perfect?
Apparently, babies are out. After paying $850,000 for exclusive photos of Jessica Simpson's baby, Maxwell Drew, People actually saw sales drop. The issue sold just 950,000 copies, less than the magazine's average of 1.3M copies. $850,000 is a lot of money for a few photographs but it's nothing compared to the coin that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got for shots of their babies. The couple made upwards of $11M for photos of their children (which they reportedly turned around and gave to charity).
