Eva, who recently had a stalker scare, is snapped wearing chunky platform sandals when taking a stroll through Los Angeles' Griffith Observatory with her 'Place Beyond the Pines' co-star.
Style seems to come before comfort for Eva Mendes. The actress who plays opposite Will Ferrell in "The Other Guys" was spotted going on a hike at Los Angeles' Griffith Park Observatory with alleged new boyfriend Ryan Gosling last Sunday, September 18, but without any sensible walking shoes.
One eyewitness told PEOPLE, "Eva wasn't dressed for the dirt road hike and she walked slowly in her sandals." The 37-year-old beauty donned a loose, blue mini-dress with a pair of chunky platform sandals. Though so, the observer said, "Ryan didn't seem to mind the slower pace and they ... both looked very happy."
The new pair were seen enjoying the romantic hike just two weeks after they were snapped hugging and kissing when going on a date to Disneyland in Anaheim, California. A witness told Us Weekly at the time, "She would lean into him and she held his arm the entire time." The source also claimed that she even fed him.
Adding more to the romance story, PEOPLE reported that 30-year-old Ryan has been visiting Eva "as often as he can". One source further spilled, "The couple have enjoyed many quiet nights with delivery food, and have also been spotted on casual strolls in Eva's Los Feliz neighborhood."
In another news, Eva was reported to have experienced a stalker scare recently. According to TMZ, the Sand Saref of "The Spirit" noticed she was followed by someone when driving through Hollywood on Tuesday (September 20) night. It was said that she was so scared that she drove to a police station for help.
However, officers couldn't find the culprit when they scoured the area for suspects. Nonetheless, police provided Eva an escort home for a safety measure. It is still unclear whether the stalker was a paparazzi or an overzealous fan.
