Ryan Gosling really is dating Blake Lively, it seems


Back in October, there was a report that Blake Lively and Ryan Gosling were getting it on. This report was quickly quashed by Blake’s rep, who denied the whole thing to Gossip Cop, claiming that Blake was still riding Penn Badgley. Then, a few weeks later, Blake and Penn’s split was announced – and here’s the kicker: they split back in September. So… Blake’s rep will lie for her, it seems. Anyway, this is just the long way of telling you that Blake and Ryan are very likely “on”. Blake flew from Paris to LA to attend the Blue Valentine premiere… and some behind-the-scenes dirt, via LaineyGossip and Roger Friedman seems to indicate that last night was Blake and Ryan’s “date night”. That bitch gets to ride The Gosdong.

…Last night, “Blue Valentine”–a Sundance crowd pleaser–got its official premiere at the Museum of Modern Art, followed by one of the great parties of the fall season–thrown by Oscar guru Peggy Siegal–at the “Boom Boom Room” atop the Standard Hotel (the whole thing sponsored by Stoli Vodka and Quintessentially).

Stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams were both there, the first time they’ve been together, I think, since Sundance. Their eclectic audience included everyone from Lance Bass (not together) to Lord and Lady Astor, Parker Posey, Jonathan Ames (he writes the “Bored to Death” series on HBO), “Half Nelson” co director Ryan Fleck, the movie’s producer Jamie Patricof, and “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively, who is dating Gosling.
Both Ryan and Michelle are consistently mentioned for Best Actor and Actress nominations. Academy members should be studying their “Blue Valentine” DVDs–which just arrived this week–to see how good they are.

Funniest bit of the night: Peggy Siegal, probably gaga from giving screenings, lunches and dinners every day and night., mistakenly introduced Gosling to the Astors as “Derek Cianfrance.” Then he was introduced to a couple more people that way. A good sport, and very polite, Ryan then chatted up his new friends as Cianfrance. He got a kick out of it. “It was some of my best work,” he told us later. “And no one got to see it!” He added, amused: “But you do it for the personal satisfaction. That’s the reward!”

PS Listen–we’re all tired. At dinner at the Standard Grill, I asked the blonde sitting with Gosling and another couple what she did for a living. Everyone started throwing things at me. “That’s Blake Lively,” they all yelled in unison. They were so right, and I was so amiss. For the record, Blake was excellent in “The Town.” I will write it 100 times on a blackboard!

So… Ryan and Blake were seated together, in a group, having dinner or drinks or something. You know what? It makes sense. To me, at least. Blake is a high-flier, and she’s been itching to trade up from Penn for months. You know she probably really would have preferred Leo DiCaprio, but Gosling will just have to do. My guess is that it won’t last too long though – Blake’s got a famewhore streak that I just don’t think will be palatable to Ryan for very long. But it will last for a bit, and Blake will get some good press out of it, and maybe she’ll be able to trade up in a few months.

    Oh gawd gag me with a freaking spoon (what?). Why can’t Ryan just stay single? I mean seriously he is way to good for these girls. OMG, Blake Lively, of all people? My gawd. My heart hurts. D=

  2. Jeri says:

    Poor Ryan – sucks to be used.

  3. Laura says:

    Haha, Blake and Ryan, Jake and Swifty – they’re going down like flies.

    But who cares, let’s talk about Teen Witch!!!

  4. Tea says:

    He hasn’t been able to maintain a meaningful relationship for a while. That should say something about him. Maybe he’s the problem and I agree Blake is using this just for her career. The fact that he falls for such famewhores is off-putting.

  5. Marjalane says:

    Well piss, piss, piss. First Gabriel Aubrey, and now Ryan Gosling? At least Boobs Lively doesn’t look like a walking STD. Such a waste of hunky man. *sniff*

  6. Anglea says:

    Lmao every time I see that guy all I can think of is ‘Call me!

  7. Kittypants says:

    …and he seemed like such an intelligent young man.

  8. citysuede says:

    how can you trade up from Ryan Gosling….that man is glorious! (Well except maybe for RDJ or Gerry, but they are too old for her)

  9. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Who needs to trade up? He’s a cutie!

  10. Jennifer says:

    Blake is just seems so full of Try to me. I can’t like this girl! I’m one of those hopeless romantics that wants to see him back with Rachel McAdams. Has he been with anyone meaningful since her?

  11. spinner says:

    Step off, bitch!! Ryan is mine. Go back to Ben.

  12. Tea says:

    Imagine their conversations, while he waxes poetics about his art of acting similar to James Franco she tries to follow his thoughts. LMAO

  13. bros says:

    am I the only one who finds him completely feminine looking? I think he had a nose job a while back and now its too thin and femme. and he has no lips.

  14. Liana says:

    He’s had that nose since “Young Hercules”

  15. karen says:

    I like Blake Lively, I like Ryan Gosling.
    Good for them!

  16. wonderful says:

    Good going, Breaker High

  17. Rasputina says:

    Well I’ll give Boobs some credit for being persistent, but god I cannot stand her.

  18. Lisa Turtle says:

    If the buzz is true and Ryan gets a nomination for Best Actor, Blake will glue herself to his side. Surely, she will wear some tight little number with a slit up to her vadge and her breast pouring over the top.

  19. cuter says:

    he is not hot. Butterface and his nose is horrible.

  20. padiddle says:


    Is Teen Witch her mom? I just now made the last name connection!

    if so, Blake will have a hard time trying to TOP THAT!!!!!

  21. Delta Juliet says:

    I’m with Jennifer re: “Blake is just seems so full of Try to me. I can’t like this girl!”

    Something about her…just….ugh

  22. heathen says:

    @ post 14 (can’t read name): I’m with you. He is a very good actor & usually takes quirky roles, which makes him interesting but I don’t get all the “he’s so hot” thing. He is just about the opposite of sexy, imo.

  23. Maritza says:

    Ryan Gosling is handsome and quite talented… I found this video in which he sings and plays piano. I didn’t know he had a band.

  24. I Choose Me says:

    I like his nose, I like his face. I think it has character. He’s much better onscreen than in stills though. He has a natural, quiet magnetism that shines through.

  25. I Choose Me says:

    @padiddle. Robin Lively of ‘Teen Witch’ fame is her sister not her mom.

    *sings* Such a waste, a pretty face,
    now who would ever wanna go and Top That!

  26. Obvious says:

    @padiddle, teen witch is one of her half sisters.

    @Kaiser, how exactly does one trade up from Gosling?????

  27. ctkat1 says:

    Well played, Ms. Lively. If he gets an Oscar nom he won’t be taking her (too soon of a relationship to do a red carpet) but she will get to go to all of the after parties, etc. Excellent exposure for her around the big, BIG names.

    I’m getting snarky for a minute: remember how Blake Lively was auditioning for all of the “major” roles over the past few months? She auditioned for Gravity: offered to Natalie Portman, went to Sandra Bullock. She auditioned hard for Great Gatsby: went to Carey Mulligan. She’s trying to get an audition for The Dark Knight Rises: doubt it.

    She has nothing, NOTHING lined up now. Green Lantern is still to come, but she hasn’t gotten another film. And judging by her line reading in the Green Lantern trailer, she won’t be getting anything soon. She’s gorgeous, absolutely. Will made a great model for Chanel, looks great on the cover of Vogue, wears the hell out of her wardrobe on Gossip Girl. But she’s trying to swim in the deep end of the actors pool, and she’s not cutting it. So now she’s trying to date someone who is cutting it, maybe hoping he’ll give her some acting lessons???

  28. Kaiser says:

    How you trade up from Ryan Gosling:

    Leo DiCaprio (bigger A-List star)
    Clive Owen (hotter)
    Brad Pitt (more attention)
    Michael Fassbender (she would get slut-shanked, and become the new Marilyn Monroe in death)

  29. birdgherl says:

    Blake and Ryan are both stunning. What a gorgeous couple.

  30. Obvious says:

    @kaiser, I see your point….but still it’ Gosdong…i wouldn’t feel the need to tradeup…not at all…fuck, can I be booby mclegs for a little bit? just for the Gosdong?????

  31. padiddle says:

    Thanks everyone for clarifying. I thought Robin would be a little young to be her mom, makes sense that it is her sister.

  32. Emma says:

    They look very similar. You know what they say, you’re attracted to people who look like you.

  33. Didi says:

    two butterfaces……match made in heaven

  34. heatheradair says:

    This boy needs to find his type. From Sandra Bullock to Rachel McAdams to this obnoxious Blake piece – he hasn’t found his niche.

    And watch, she’ll be the ho to finally bust up The Hamm and Jennifer Cheekfillerfeldt.

  35. Nicky says:

    “Stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams were both there, the first time they’ve been together, I think, since Sundance.”

    Is he serious? They were together as early as last week, attending screenings of Blue Valentine together. Pay attention, Roger!

  36. vivien says:

    god i really hope they are not dating, that would be a travesty! The only time i have seen blake when she is not on a red carpet, was when i watched gossip girl that one time- it sucked. so i will not be impressed with ryan if he is dating some random whose only claim to fame is a shitty television series and boobs.

  37. Madison says:

    I don’t get all the hate for Blake, she’s no different to the other TV actresses who have traded up for fame, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Garner and Katie Holmes. If you want to be on the A list and if like jen, jess and katie, your a so so actress and want to be A list famous you need to trade up to an actor who is A list famous.

  38. dahlia47 says:

    SHe doesn’t look like his type. NOt indie enough. Sorry.

  39. Henriette says:

    WEll, I’m a straight woman and even I want to do Blake Lively. Can’t blame him for wanting some miles-long legs, firm – if fake – boobs and best hair in the business. It won’t last but they’ll both get what they want out of it.

  40. Dee Vine says:

    If I could choose between Penn Badgley or Ryan Gosling, I would go with Gosling too! How many of you are still with the same guy from your early 20s? Not necessarily a trade up, but moving on from a boyfriend of 3 years (or however how long they dated) when you are a young hot girl is normal, I would think.

    Dont understand the famewhore comments…if you want to get ahead in Hollywood “famewhore” has to be in the resume! SOme people are just more subtle than others.

    She’s not the most talented actess in Hollywood, but at least she is working hard to raise her profile for more roles. Part of the job.

    (Obviously I have a girl crush on Blake)

  41. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Please please don’t let her be in The Dark Knight Rises … I’d cry … first Katie Holmes … now this …

  42. ellaella says:

    Love them together!!
    Totally gorgeous!!
    Haters to the left.!!!


  43. Jaye E says:

    Why does Gosling have to “pick a type”? A lot of folk don’t have a set “type”. I know I don’t. Sometimes you just like who you like.

  44. bite me says:

    i dont blame her for being a famewhore… she another alba in the making
