While many A-listers don't mind opening up their private lives to the public, Gosling and Mendes have made it clear they have no intention to let anyone into their world.
Despite being together for almost 13 years – in which time they've had two daughters – the actors have gone out of their way to keep their careers very separate from one another, and their relationship out of the headlines.
But following Gosling's recent Oscar nomination for his role in Barbie, Mendes has not only congratulated her husband online but also gone out of her way to address the criticism that surrounded his casting back in 2022.
Watch the trailer for Barbie here. Post continues after video.
Earlier this month, she screenshotted a Rolling Stone article with the headline, "Sorry to Be the One to Say It, but Ryan Gosling Is Giving Major Cringe as Ken in 'Barbie'". In the caption of the post, she wrote, "So proud of my man. 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 the Oscars."
