Ryan Gosling Hits the 2024 Oscars Red Carpet with Sister Mandi Amidst Tradition of Privacy with Eva Mendes

In a departure from the usual Hollywood glamour, Ryan Gosling opted for a family affair at the 96th annual Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Breaking away from the tradition of walking the red carpet with his partner of 12 years, Eva Mendes, the 43-year-old Barbie star arrived at the Oscars with his sister, Mandi Gosling.

Donning an all-black ensemble paired with a small necklace and Barbie-inspired pink socks, Gosling looked dapper as ever. His sister, Mandi, accompanied him in a stunning houndstooth, floor-length gown, adding a touch of elegance to the red carpet. This sibling duo, known for attending several awards shows together, made quite an impression at the prestigious event.

The decision to bring his sister as his Oscars date aligns with Gosling and Mendes’ longstanding tradition of keeping their private life away from the public eye. Mendes, who typically refrains from attending public events with Gosling, posted on Instagram earlier this year, expressing her comfort in sharing pre-existing moments and emphasizing their desire to keep their private life private.

The couple, who met on the set of their film “The Place Beyond the Pines” in 2012, has rarely been seen together on red carpets since then. Mendes, showing her unwavering support for Gosling, posted backstage photos from the Oscars rehearsals, captioning one with “Siempre con mi hombre” (Always with my man).

While the red carpet may not have witnessed the couple together, Eva Mendes was indeed present backstage with Ryan in his dressing room, offering an intimate glimpse into their Oscar night. The couple shares two daughters, Esmeralda, 9, and Amada, 7.

Gosling, nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Ken in the blockbuster “Barbie,” added an extra layer of excitement to the evening. Not only did he walk the red carpet with his sister, but he also brought his mom, Donna Gosling, and stepfather, Valerio Attanasio, making it a memorable family affair.

The actor is set to perform the song “I’m Just Ken” from the film during the awards ceremony. Despite the controversy surrounding his nomination, with co-star Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig not receiving nods in their respective categories, Gosling expressed his honor and pride in being recognized by his colleagues.

As Hollywood awaits the unfolding of the Oscars night, Ryan Gosling’s choice to bring his sister as his date adds a unique and personal touch to the star-studded event, showcasing the importance of family in the midst of the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown.
