Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes snuck in some late-night time on the location of Ryan's new project in LA yesterday. Ryan's apparently directing something, and the set included a large horse as a prop. He got behind the camera for the shoot after spending the last few days working on his fitness with regular mixed martial arts classes. Ryan's been emerging sweaty and barefoot from the boxing sessions, which he kicked off just last month. He missed a few workouts, though, when he traveled to NYC to celebrate New Year's Eve with Eva.
The couple are going strong into 2012 after they began dating late last year. They cozied up while filming The Place Beyond the Pines in the Summer, and they should be side by side to promote the movie ahead of its release later this year.
