Ryan Gosling premiered his fab new flick, Blue Valentine, in New York last night, and we know what you're thinking...
It seems like there have been a hundred "premieres" for this movie, but there was one thing—or rather person—last night had that the others did not.
That would be Blake Lively by Ryan's side all night!
As Marc Malkin told you guys yesterday, Blake is starring in a new ad campaign for Chanel (what doesn't this girl get?) and the hottie with a bangin' body flew back from a shoot in Paris in time for last night's screening.
Blake skipped press and the red carpet, but was snapped all smiles as she attempted to go in through a side door (pictured here) at the Museum of Modern Art, where the screening was taking place.
Lively and Gosling were later spotted at the afterparty at the Standard Hotel and apparently weren't too far apart—ever.
"They weren't obviously all over each other, but it seemed like they were together," dishes a fellow celebrating source. "There were times when they would be sitting down and he would kind of lay his hand on her knee. They were smiling, laughing, they looked happy!"
This whole thing sounds awfully cozy (not to mention ambitious for jet-setting Blake) for two good-lookin' babes who are just friends, no?
Blake and Ryan were first spotted undercover in October at Disneyland, and while Lively's rep denied they were there on a date, it was announced Blake split with longtime BF Penn Badgley two weeks later.
One guy very much in the NYC scene (who has a hilarious recap of last night, you must read) believes B and R to be dating.
But dating is so often such a meaningless term these days, is it not?
Our spy adds that Blake and Ryan didn't leave together.
We've put in calls to Lively and Gosling's reps but have yet to hear back.
