Eva Mendes is one supportive partner, given that she's fanning over Ryan Gosling as Ken, and thanking director Greta Gerwig for all the kind words she said about Gosling as an actor.

Of course, this is hardly the first time Mendes has shown her love and appreciation for Gosling, although the couple, who have been together since 2013 keep their private life just that, private. Earlier too, Mendes shared a few pictures of her wearing a white t-shirt emblazoned with Ryan Gosling as Ke, as she cheekily wrote, "Got that real big Kenergy." She also quoted Coi Leray's song, "Coz girls is players too."

The Barbie Instagram handle also commented, "All the Kenergy" and here's more of that...

Ever since 42-year-old Ryan Gosling started production as Ken for the upcoming "Barbie" movie, opposite Margot Robbie, fans have started dubbing Mendes the Latin Barbie and even begged that she have a cameo in the movie.

Meanwhile, all Mendes is fanning about these days is the greatest actor she has ever worked with, and yes, she means Gosling. In a recent post, Mendes shared a set of throwback pictures of them together, from the 2012 movie "The Place Beyond the Pines", probably because this is when they started dating.

The couple also share two daughters, born in 2014 and 2016, and keep their private lives hidden from the public, with Mendes usually fanning over Gosling only when it comes to work.

She captioned the post, "Mi Hombre. Mi Vida… To say he’s the greatest actor I’ve ever worked with is an understatement."

She also thanked Greta Gerwig for her kind words as the director, who was adamant in casting Gosling as Ken described his acting as "It’s some combination of Marlon Brando meets Gene Wilder meets John Barrymore meets John Travolta.

Mendes wrote, "Gracias to the brilliant & beautiful Greta Gerwig."

Fans responded to Mendes' post, letting her know, cheekily, "Not gonna lie, I thought these were images from the Barbie movie and thought Ken hit some hard times."
