In 2014, the actress was reportedly in a sizzling romance with future Southpaw co-star Jake Gyllenhaal.
"You sacrifice so f**kin' much [as an actor]," he told the magazine.
To be fair to the couple, they just happened to hang out together when Kit was shooting in Toronto and Rachel, well, she just happens to come from Canada, so the paparazzi managed to put two and two together and what resulted was a story of epic proportions.
The two later joined a bunch of others at a Bill Clinton event and were also seen in various locations in the US and Canada, which lent credence to the romance rumor.
Greater success came to Gosling when he starred in two critically acclaimed films—the financial comedy-drama The Big Short (2015) and the musical La La Land (2016).
For the latter, he won a Golden Globe Award and received a second Oscar nomination.
