Ryan Gosling made for half of an adorable couple tonight on the red carpet, as usual.

Hold your horses, it was mom and frequent event date Donna basking in the glow of her son's success at the Gangster Squad premiere in Hollywood—but Eva Mendes was there in spirit! 

"My mother's wearing all my girlfriend's clothes," Gosling told E! News, a tidbit we found highly believable considering her paisley-print trench, which we could easily picture on a certain actress.

"I'm wearing Eva Mendes," Donna confirmed, adding, "She let me raid her closet."

Well, that's...cute?

Gosling also sweetly attributed his sex-symbol status to genetics. "I mean, obviously, as you can see..." he said, gesturing toward Donna. 

Alas, the Canadian-born heartthrob couldn't tell us who designed his as-seen-on-every-actor-this-year brown suit—probably because he had no idea. It appears that the ladies in his life are the ones who take the lead in the style department.

Watch the clip to see what Ryan had to say about his onscreen chemistry with Emma Stone, and he explains why fans are always shouting his name.
