Ryan Gosling may be steaming up the big screen with Blue Valentine co-star Michelle Williams, but in real life, is he dating Gossip Girl and reported new Chanel spokeswoman Blake Lively?

According to E!, Ryan and Blake were spotted cozying up after the New York premiere of his film Blue Valentine this week. Though Blake didn’t strut the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art, she was snapped entering the screening via side door. At the swanky after party at the Standard Hotel, Blake and Ryan reportedly stuck close by each other.

“They weren’t obviously all over each other, but it seemed like they were together,” a source told E!. “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!”

Ryan and Blake first sparked rumors of a hookup when they were spotted sharing ice cream at Disneyland in October, posing for pictures with fans but refusing to appear in a shot together. A few weeks later, much to the disapppointment of Gossip Girl fans, Blake and co-star Penn Badgley announced their split.

Devotees of The Notebook will recall that Ryan previously dated his co-star Rachel McAdams, who is now dating her Midnight in Paris co-star Michael Sheen. So what is really noteworthy about Blake and Ryan’s hypothetical hookup is not just that they are both ridiculously good-looking, but that they apparently did not meet because they were starring in a film together!
