It’s an accessory that holds special meaning for the Hollywood couple. The long, silver chain features a round silver pendant with "Hugo” engraved on it, the name of Eva’s Belgian Malinois dog.

Clearly, Ryan knows just how to tug at his girlfriend’s heartstrings – and ours. The 33-year-old actor is an avid dog lover and the pair are often seen strolling about town with their beloved pups in tow. (Ryan has a mixed-breed dog named George.)

Eva, 40, stars in Ryan’s upcoming directorial debut, Lost River, which is set to premiere at Cannes next week.

In a recent interview, the actress opened up about working with her beau on the flick, which was formerly titled, How To Catch a Monster.

"He really created the most beautiful, collaborative, creative atmosphere on set," she gushed about Ryan’s directing, adding with a smile, "I know I'm biased … He's the best, he's the best."
