Eva Mendes Claps Back At Ryan Gosling’s ‘Barbie’ Critics After Oscar Nomination: ‘Proud Of My Man’

Eva Mendes knows Ryan Gosling is more than Kenough! One day after the actor was nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of Ken in “Barbie,” Eva shared support for her longtime partner while clapping back at critics who doubted his ability to play the iconic doll. “So proud of my man,” she wrote on 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.” Eva isn’t the only one singing Ryan’s praises! His “Barbie” co-star and fellow Oscar nominee America Ferrera also gushed over his work in the blockbuster.
