New couple alert: Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling?

As we reported a few weeks ago, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling are no more. Rachel allegedly moved on first, into the arms of hottie Josh Lucas. Now LainyGossip is reporting that Ryan Gosling has got someone on the down-low… Natalie Portman!

From what I’ve seen of Natalie Portman’s dating record, Ryan would definitely be a step up. But that’s what makes me question Lainey’s report. Natalie seems to go for the vegan-rock-star-hipster types like “Venezuelan folk singer” Devandra Banhart. Natalie seems to be strangely similar to Drew Barrymore in her taste in men. Which makes me think that a clean-cut, Oscar-nominated Canadian heartthrob might overwhelm her. But, really, who would kick Gosling out of bed? Read Lainey’s suspicions:

Dreams come true?

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves…but at the very least, there’s a spark. More than a spark.

Ryan Gosling and Natalie Portman!

As I reported exclusively on eTalk last night, my sources say they met a few weeks ago at one of his DJ nights through a mutual acquaintance. Am told he was rather assertive, asking for her number right away. Since then they’ve apparently been flirt texting and hanging out with friends, and casual dvd nights undercover, not in any particular rush towards anything serious but they say they are super cute when together, very relaxed vibe and, as girly boo boo as this sounds, supposedly he’s crazy about her but is “happy not to push”.

…Still early days, so let’s not overheat. You know how it works in Hollywood. Things flash away so quickly. So maybe just a little squeeeeee under your breath for now. Save the loud one for if and when it really blooms.

From Lainey Gossip

They would be a really cute couple, and I hope it’s for real. The Rachel McAdams-Ryan Gosling round-robin had gone on too long, and it’s good that both of them are getting some space. Isn’t it interesting that both Ryan and Rachel both seem to have specific types? Ryan likes cute, petite brunettes, and Rachel like dimpled blondes. So sweet. A little vanilla too? Perhaps.

    Is he clean cut? I always had him pegged as a bit of a bad boy. Almost like Edward Norton. Totally boyish, but kinky in private.

  2. Diva says:

    I think I’m the only person in the world who doesn’t see the appeal of Ryan Gosling… outside of “The Notebook”, lol, I’m a hopeless, sickening romantic, so he was flawless in that movie. {=0)

  3. Blondie says:

    Works for me. I have crushes on both of them.

  4. HEB says:

    Either the dye job is terrible or Natalie needs to go back to short hair…I just can’t get at what is bugging me about those pictures…and I LOVE Natalie Portman…

  5. Kaiser says:

    Diva – I saw interviewed a couple of years ago on the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet and fell in love. He seems like such a sweetie! And he has a really sexy voice.

  6. Kaiser says:

    *saw HIM interviewed. Miss edit so much…

  7. Diva says:

    I suppose in all fairness I’ve never really paid much attention to him. Just looked at pictures… and “The Notebook” of course!

    I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on your word and maybe look a little further into the whole Ryan Gosling = hottie thing. {=0)

  8. Ash says:

    They look real cute together. Well, would look cute together, haven’t actually seen them with each other. Natalie Portman is one of my favorite actresses. Ryan’s not bad to look at either

  9. for_realz says:

    LOVED RG in the movie “Lars and the Real Girl”!!

    he is just too cute! NP is a doll too! hope they work out

    Heartthrob aside, I think we’re forgetting that Ryan is a VERY intelligent man, very well spoken, and VERY involved in international affairs. He’s a huge advocate for Darfur and I believe Ugunda.

    So it doesn’t surprise me that she would be interested in someone of that class and caliber and vice versa. Portman is a very bright and very pretty person, inside and out.

    I love the romantic notion of the Notebook stars living happily ever after, but these two fit on a different level.

  11. daisy424 says:

    Awww, cute couple(if it’s true). I like them both.

  12. YoMomma says:

    No say it ain’t so! Ryan’s MINE…

  13. Shelly Shellz says:

    I think its awesum. Luv Ryan and luv Natalie….was never a big fan of that Rachel whats-her-face

  14. GrnMtGirl says:

    I love both Natalie and Ryan. He is especially hot and on my top 5. She is gorgeous and so smart – definitely one of my girl crushes.

    It would be fun to see them together – kinda like Jake & Reese.

  15. Karen says:

    Loved her and her movies until I saw two interviews with her and thought she was incredibly full of herself and arrogant. Ryan is too good for her … ;)

  16. Mairead says:

    I’ve never seen The Notebook or anything else he’s been in so I’ve not opinion of him either way.

    However, I love Devendra Banhart’s music and in the last interview I read (a couple years back admittedly) he comes across as a quirky interesting guy and not one I’m going to admit is a step down from a “Shorn-headed Canadian actor”.

    So there!

    This is from People a while ago:

    Ryan Gosling’s dream project is a remake of the 1953 Audrey Hepburn romantic comedy Roman Holiday. But he’d only do it with Natalie Portman. “I love that film, and she’s the only person who could do it. She’s like water, that girl. She moves through everything untouched,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

  18. DD says:

    He has this nerdy cute thing going on, and Natalie’s one of my girl crushes.

  19. Maritza says:

    I hope it works out, they seem perfect for each other. Natalie should cut her hair short again,she looked much better.

  20. Blah blah blah says:

    I’m definitely in the minority but I find Natalie barfy. I don’t think she’s the greatest adult actress and her cuteness is just so obnoxious.

  21. Ally says:

    They already remade “Roman Holiday” with Mandy Moore and that cute Brit some years ago. Moore was the president’s daughter instead of a princess and the Brit was an undercover bodyguard. It was predictably terrible.

    This remake would be, too.

    If Gosling wasn’t an actor, and moreover an actor who’d been in “The Notebook”, he would be a pretty homely dude.

  22. Billy says:

    Natalie Portman – I hope not, she seems like a really dumb girl and contrary what mainstream critics say she is not a great actress.
