Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are both back on the West Coast following their romantic reunion in NYC last week. Eva visited a friend's house in LA yesterday, while Ryan took a solo stroll to the Hollywood Hills Hotel after leaving Chateau Marmont. Separate film projects kept the couple apart for some time, but Eva and Ryan spent Thanksgiving together in the Big Apple. They're back to work now, with Ryan prepping for his first directorial effort, How to Catch a Monster. The movie is currently being cast and is expected to begin filming in the Spring. First, though, he'll premiere Gangster Squad ahead of its January release. Shortly after, Ryan and Eva will link back up for promotions on The Place Beyond the Pines.
