She replied: "It's basically a dark fairy tale, and I play a woman named Cat. It's a beautiful, beautiful film."

"(Ryan) really created the most beautiful, collaborative, creative atmosphere on set," she enthused, adding: "I know I'm biased. He's the best, he's the best."

Reports abounded that the pair had gone their separate ways, with some stories even stating that Ryan was on the verge of getting back together with his old flame Rachel McAdams.

Ryan and Eva haven't been photographed together this year, though the Gangster Squad actor was spotted leaving Eva's home last month.
