La La Land is already one of the most talked about movies of the 2017 awards season. The film, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, is set to take home a lot of Oscars on February 26th — but it turns out that someone not working on the film actually came up with one of the film’s best lines. At one point in the film, Gosling’s character Sebastian says, “L.A. worships everything and values nothing.”

The line was quickly one of the most talked about lines of the film, but Gosling revealed to Entertainment Tonight that it was actually something his partner, Eva Mendes came up with.

Gosling and Mendes, who have been together since 2011 and have two children together (two-year-old Esmerelda and six-month-old Amada) have remained pretty mum about their relationship. Though, when he won the Golden Globe for his performance in La La Land, Gosling did give a beautiful nod to “his lady.”

The Oscars are just about three weeks away and we’re really hoping Gosling and Mendes FINALLY make a red carpet appearance together!
