Ryan Gosling revealed that Eva Mendes figured out he had concussion because of his obsession with doughnut shops

He was undergoing intense training in NASA for his new movie ‘First Man’.

IT’S BEEN AWHILE since we’ve seen Ryan Gosling but he’s back. He’s been promoting his new movie ‘First Man’ which is a biopic of the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong.

Naturally if you’re making a movie about space then you need to learn what it’s like to be an astronaut. He was on Jimmy Kimmel explaining exactly what he had to do.

At NASA, they put us through the paces in certain ways. For instance, they built this multi-axis trainer, which is something NASA designed just to help the astronauts prepare for the worst-case scenarios in space. But it’s this thing that kind of sends you ass over teakettle.’

That doesn’t sound intense at all does it?

Ryan explained that he’d be in it for 20 minutes at a time to get the shots they needed which added up to between 6-8 hours of spinning around. That’s a lot of spinning and Ryan hit his head repeatedly which is never good and he worked it out in a rather unusual way. Or rather his wife Eva Mendes did.

Well, I knew something was wrong when I went home one night and I called Eva, and I was just hellbent on this idea that there were people in doughnut stores all around the world that were trying to charm their way into getting free doughnuts.


According to Ryan, Eva was very patient with him as he rambled through this theory and then suggested he might have brain damage and that he should take himself to the hospital rather than a doughnut shop to test out his theory.

When he got to the hospital he was diagnosed with minor concussion by a brain surgeon who according to Ryan was ‘immaculately dressed’ so clearly had been pulled out of a fancy dinner.

What a way to meet Ryan Gosling though right? And what a patient and incredible woman Eva Mendes is. If that was my husband I would have assumed he’d leathered 7 pints into him.
