Posted Wednesday February 5, 2014 1:30 PM GMT

Looking to start the New Year as singles, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes reportedly called it quits on their 2-year relationship during the Christmas holiday season.

Both InTouch and Life & Style Weekly are reporting that the “Lars and the Real Girl” hunk and the “The Other Guys” babe called time on their union in December and are both still single.

An insider told InTouch, “There is no ill will. Neither is rushing out to date other people right now,” and another source noted, “They just knew it was time.”

Furthermore, “They started having problems back in September. They decided to quietly call it off for good around Christmas. Eva loves Hollywood, the parties, the glamor. She loves going out. Ryan is introverted - very serious and a total homebody.”

“They knew it was time to take the next step and get married. But neither was sure they wanted that to happen.”

Eva previously confessed, “I'm certainly not thinking about being a mom. I can't imagine it. I'm too selfish,” whereas Ryan felt differently- “I'd like to be making babies. But I'm not, so I'm making movies.”

In the aftermath of the split, Ryan has “packed up and moved back to Canada for a while. He felt like he needed time out of the limelight to refocus.”
