The actress recently appeared on TheKelly Clarkson Show where host Kelly Clarkson pulled up a photo of the ultra-private couple from the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. The two were promoting The Place Beyond the Pines, the movie where they met and fell in love, and Mendes admitted that she was struggling while the photo was taken.
â€œOh my God, thatâ€™s so old. Thatâ€™s literally me going, â€˜Iâ€™m not in love with him. What? Iâ€™m not in love.â€™ â€˜Cause we were trying to be very professional,â€ Mendes admitted.
And when Clarkson pointed out how beautiful Mendes looks in the picture, the actress quickly switched the attention to her partner instead.
â€œLook at himÂ though,â€ Mendes replied, leaning closer to the picture projected behind them.
Mendes, 45, and Gosling, 38, have since welcomed two daughters: Esmeralda, 5, and Amada, 3.
Mendes recently opened up to PEOPLE about Goslingâ€™s support of her many endeavors as she takes a small break from appearing onscreen. The actress last starred in the 2014 movie Lost River.
â€œRyan is incredibly supportive and heâ€™s always in awe,â€ said Mendes about Goslingâ€™s support of her New York & CompanyÂ clothing line.
TheÂ HitchÂ actress has been designing with the brand for six years now, and Gosling still has to remind Mendes of her hard work.
â€œHe makes me realize that [making the collection] is actually a lot of work,â€ Mendes added. â€œI have so much fun doing it, that I donâ€™t really realize.â€
He also gives his input on his favorite pieces. â€œHeâ€™s been loving the pants Iâ€™ve been doing,â€ she said. â€œIâ€™ve been getting into pants more, especially soft pants like joggers.â€
