When Eva Mendes Jokingly Told Ryan Gosling That He Had a “Drainage Drain”


We can’t imagine what an actor has to go through to prepare for his role, let alone get the perfect shot. If it’s an action movie or a sci-fi movie, everyone is working so hard to make it perfect. Ryan Gosling talks about one such film in which he starred. To prepare for the role, he visited NASA, and then, when shooting a scene, he injured himself. The film he starred in was called The First Man.

This is a biographical drama directed by Damien Chazelle based on a script by Josh Singer. The first man to set foot on the moon was American test pilot Neil Armstrong. He and his Apollo teammates put on insulated suits and go on a mission to land on the moon. And Ryan played the main role of Neil Armstrong. He told about the incident and the funny answer his wife gave.

Ryan Gosling had “Drainage Damage” when He Starred in “First Man”

Listening to the interviews of actors talking about their experiences is interesting and funny, because sometimes they have fun talking about serious incidents, which makes us laugh. One such incident occurred with the star of “La La Land” when he was filming his 2018 film “The First Man.” Since they were shooting a movie about Neil Armstrong, a trip to NASA was a mandatory part of their film. In one of the scenes, Ryan had to shoot from 6 to 8 hours. That’s how it turned out.

As you may have heard, there is a multi-axis simulator that helps astronauts prepare for the worst-case scenarios in space. Well, they do it for about 20 minutes. But because they had to shoot a movie and make a lot of shots, Ryan spent 6 to 8 hours in this space. After spending a lot of time there, his brain began to stink of rats.

As funny as it sounds, it’s true. He even called his wife, Eva Mendes, and told her about this strange instinct that he felt. He said: “I was just obsessed with the idea that people in donut shops all over the world, you know, are trying to charm them to get free donuts.”

Well, being patient about it, Eva said: “I think you may have ‘drainage damage’.” But Ryan denied it and worried about the doughnut charmers. But Eva explained that she was joking about “drainage damage” because he may actually have brain damage. Fortunately, he was checked out, cured and the filming was completed.
