Although they have been dating for over a year, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes really only made their public debut Thursday night in New York City … and it wasn't by choice.

The gorgeous couple stepped out for the premiere of their new film "The Place Beyond the Pines," but don't be fooled by their adorable red carpet photos. It was almost impossible to get the two lovebirds to pose alone!

Although Mendes, 39, and Gosling, 32, are staying together in New York City, the couple arrived separately to the premiere and kept each other at arms length for most of the red carpet. Once inside the theater, the on and off screen couple was seated together with family and friends, but there was no PDA. Unfortunately for onlookers, the beautiful couple actually practices what they preach in wanting to keep their private life private.

Even at the afterparty, sources tell omg! that Mendes and Gosling "didn't interact too much."

"They knew all eyes were on them and wanted to keep the night about celebrating the movie, not their relationship," a source says.

The couple had a table together inside the bash at the Bowery Hotel, although they opted to keep conversations moving with other people rather than one another. We're told the couple appeared to be in "great spirits" mingling with costars separately (although Bradley Cooper held court across the room). Even though Mendes didn't cozy up to Gosling, she did have another member of his family on her arm: his mom!

Just because these two weren't making out in public, don't take that to mean there is trouble in paradise (sorry ladies!).

"They are extremely happy together," a source tells omg!.

Guess you can't believe those Rachel McAdams rumors, then.
