We raised our eyebrows last month when we heard that Blake Lively was seen with Ryan Gosling at Disneyland. Then, just weeks later, she and Penn Badgely broke up. Even though the timing was suspect, we just chalked it up to two old pals spending time in the Happiest Place On Earth, end of story. Alas, it’s gotten a bit more complex:Ã‚Â Blake and Ryan got cozy after the Blue Valentine premiere in New York Tuesday. The Daily News says the pair was overly affectionate, with Gosling grabbing Lively’s knee and holding hands as they sat in the Top of the Standard’s VIP area. They were spotted later that night dining with two other people at the Standard Grill, away from the crowd.
While all signs point to romance, it could be that Ryan just needed someone to celebrate with, since Blue Valentine had its NC-17 rating overturned. The film has been the subject of controversy due to its “explicit sexual content,” but finally received an “R” rating. Fans of joyless marital thrusting—rejoice!
