The actress and model shared a post to Instagram and snuck in a message about Gosling

While accepting the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy on Monday, Gosling spoke about the sacrifices his “lady” Eva Mendes made, so that he could have, “one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film”

Gosling explained that during filming Mendes was raising their daughter Esmeralda while pregnant with baby number two, Amada, and helping, “her brother fight his battle with cancer". He attributed his success in his role for La La Land to her help:

“If she hadn’t have taken all that on so I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today, so, sweetheart thank you,” he said.

In response to this heartfelt speech, Mendes shared a deceptive post to Instagram of Janelle Monae. Sounds odd, right? 

But the beauty lies in the caption, you see. 

She wrote:

“Obviously this wasn't my favourite moment of the night....But it was definitely my favourite style moment of the night. The stunning and talented @janellemonae is killing me with this look. So so so beautiful ❤ #goldenglobes”
