He said “While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences that I’d ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second. Trying to help her brother with his battle against cancer. If she hadn’t taken all that on, so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me. So sweetheart thank you, to my daughters Amada and Esmeralda, I love you. And if I may, I would like to dedicate this to the memory of her brother, Juan Carlos Mendes.” His speech was met with roaring applause from the crowd of many well known faces in the entertainment industry.

Gosling and Mendes met on the set of their film, ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ in 2011. They started dating shortly after meeting, and appeared together at the film’s premier in 2012. Mendes at 42 is 6 years Gosling’s senior. She was born in Miami, Florida to two Cuban parents, when her parents divorced her mother relocated to Glendale, CA and raised Mendes and her brother and sister, as a single mother. It is there after a few semesters at Cal State Northridge that Mendes caught the acting bug and dropped out of college to pursue acting full time.
