It's graduation season, and Ryan Gosling recently supported a very important graduate in his life: his mom. The "Drive" actor took his girlfriend, Eva Mendes, to his mom's graduation from Brock University in Ontario, Canada on June 6. Gosling's mother received a bachelor of education degree. Check out footage of the superstar at his mom's big day.
