Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are reportedly spending time apart to “re-evaluate” their relationship.

The Hollywood stars have been dating for more than two years, but in recent months speculation has surfaced that they are experiencing a rocky patch. Now it seems they have decided to take a break to see if they have a future together.

“There was a realisation before Thanksgiving that they took things way too fast and were rushing toward a marriage that neither of them particularly needed,” a source told RadarOnline.

“They’ve decided to take a break to re-evaluate their romance.”

The insider insists the pair haven’t officially split yet, but are seriously considering whether they can make their relationship work.

While it was previously reported that they were experiencing difficulties because 33-year-old Ryan was eager to settle down, it has now been suggested that Eva is the one keen to take the next step.
