Ryan Gosling posed with his onscreen family, Michelle Williams and Faith Wladyka, as well as their director Derek Cianfrance at a special Blue Valentine luncheon in NYC today. The event was hosted by The Weinstein Company, and the whole crew had a lot to celebrate since they won their appeal to bring the movie's rating down from NC-17 to R yesterday. Ryan and Michelle have had a full week promoting the film on the East Coast, including at Tuesday's premiere, where Blake Lively was spotted sneaking in the side door. She stuck by Ryan's side for the afterparty, and this afternoon he addressed the rumors of romance. Ryan said of Blake, "She's an incredible actress; she's a good friend," and when asked more generally about relationships in the industry, he quipped, "You're not allowed to have friends in this business." Blake is known for her sexy style, and she earned new respect for her work in The Town, while Ryan's big heart and charm make him so very hot. Not to mention he doesn't take himself too seriously, which makes Blake, whatever their status, a very lucky girl.
Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, wearing an Azzaro minidress, gazed into each other's eyes and greeted the crowd at a special Museum of Modern Art screening of Blue Valentine in NYC last night. The adorable twosome were joined by their onscreen daughter Faith Wladyka, who got to get glammed up with Ryan and Michelle in Cannes earlier this year, as well as their director Derek Cianfrance. The evening wasn't only for the cast, however, since Blake Lively was spotted quietly sneaking in to check out the film. The Gossip Girl star is no stranger to the city's red carpets, though this appearance will likely bring back up the rumors of a romance between her and Ryan. The two were spied on a Disneyland ice cream date earlier in the Fall, but at that point her rep said they were just friends. Since then, Blake split with Penn Badgley, while Gosling is still swinging single. He's been logging lots of time posing with Michelle Williams to promote their unexpectedly controversial love story, and his eloquence about the NC-17 rating is one of the things that makes him so sexy.
Dream Couple of the Day — Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams Hold Hands at Cannes Blue Valentine Premiere!
Be still our hearts. Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams clasped hands this evening at the Cannes premiere of Blue Valentine. Earlier in the day the duo killed us with their photo call chemistry, and now there's even more eye candy. He traded in his more casual daytime look for a sharp tux while she glowed in her flowing gown. Could all the hand-holding please mean something — kidding, mostly. Ryan and Michelle clearly have a dear affection for each other, and we can't help but dream that it could translate into a real life love.
Ryan and Michelle were once again joined by their onscreen daughter Faith Wladyka, whom Ryan twirled around during her big red carpet moment. He's so cute and playful with his 6-year-old costar, whose dress held some fairytale wisdom to celebrate the unconventional love story. Harvey Weinstein came out to honor the film, which his production company picked up soon after its Sundance debut. We'll be adding more photos as they come in, and catch up on all our Cannes coverage here!

Ryan Gosling squeezed Michelle Williams close at a photo call for Blue Valentine at Cannes this morning. Michelle's short blond hair stood out in the sun and may have another chance to shine if she actually ends up playing Marilyn Monroe. Mr. Gosling was so stylish right down to his Summery white shoes while she was perfectly precious showing off those stems in high wedges and a short dress. This isn't the first film festival for the adorable onscreen duo, who already made the rounds at Sundance, after which their movie was picked up by the Weinstein Company. They were joined by their pint-sized costar Faith Wladyka, who was lucky enough to get lots of attention from Ryan and even got to try on his sunglasses. There is something amazing about watching Ryan and Michelle's affection for each other, and after falling in love with the movie back in Park City, the Dec. 31 release date can't come soon enough.

Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams looked quite close throughout their Sunday premiering and promoting Blue Valentine at Sundance. The onscreen couple are said to share some pretty racy scenes in the movie, which may account for how close they looked on the red carpet and at both the T-Mobile MyTouch Diner Party and a Coach party last night. Ryan capped off the evening by playfully tubing down a hill with friends. As the guy you were most excited to see at the festival, it looks like Ryan was enjoying his time in snowy Park City as much as we love watching him. Buzz and I will be checking out the film later today — for now check out what she's thought of all the movies so far!
