â€œThe last time we saw him was when he was here with Rachel McAdams. We really liked her,â€ he says of their Christmas catch-up in 2006. â€œIt sure seemed like she was the one for him.â€ And even though sheâ€™s a big Hollywood star, fun-loving Rachel, 37 – who dated Ryan between 2004 and 2007, then briefly again in 2008 – wasnâ€™t above putting away beers and having a chinwag with her beauâ€™s reloes, Kev reveals.
â€œShe was very down-to-earth. We got to spend an evening with her, three or four hours,â€ he says. â€œWe sat drinking beers with her until two in the morning, laughing all the time. It was amazing how comfortable we were just sitting around the kitchen table.â€ But despite the fact that Ryan, 35, and girlfriend Eva, 41, have been together since 2011, Kevin says he hasnâ€™t even met her. â€œI never got to meet Eva because when she came in 2012, she spent 90 minutes or so at my brother Billyâ€™s place nearby,â€ he says. â€œThey were coming from somewhere, going to someplace. It really was a flying visit. They were soon off and gone. It was before they had the baby, of course.â€
