8 Types Of Photos Eva Mendes Needs To Include On Her New Instagram, & A Lack Of Ryan Gosling Is Not Optional

You guys, it’s big day in the world of celebrity social media. As it turns out, the usually low-key but ever demure Eva Mendes bit the bullet and joined Instagram. I know, I know, it's a pretty big deal and I wasn't expecting it, either. Mainly considering the fact that she has a Twitter but hasn't ever tweeted anything or ya know, followed anyone, but it is a move I am oh so happy about.

She’s already pretty adept at using the app, too, considering that her introductory post was one in honor of Throwback Thursday. She pulled out all the stops because the picture was nearly four decades old, a sweet and slightly worn shot of her as a precious toddler.

So, now that she’s graced us with that gem of a picture, let’s all collectively agree that we won’t ruin it before it begins and scare her off with mean or abrasive commentary on her page. Especially since she was honest about what she wants to achieve with her new account. She stated in her bio, “Taking to Instagram to keep you posted on my clothing line for New York & Company and CIRCA Beauty, a cosmetics line I have coming out at Walgreens.”

Now that I have full confidence that she’s really got the hang of this whole thing, let’s do a little wishful thinking on what other posts we can expect from our newest Instagram pal.

I mean, obviously.

Just Something That Somehow Incorporates Ryan Gosling

I'll settle for an elbow or an accidental background shot of him on a couch. I'm not picky, really.

Because this gave us all the feels, and we need to see the real life version.

A movie that will go down (in my heart at least) in rom-com infamy.
