Kirsten Dunst hasn't wasted any time picking up old habits since quietly leaving rehab recently. No, silly, we aren't talking about booze, but rather boys. Dunst was spotted on what looked very much like a date with Ryan Gosling on Saturday in New York. The two are both slotted to start filming Andrew Jarecki's All Good Things soon, and the "shabby clothes" and length of the afternoon meeting suggest Dunst is back to working her boy-crazy charm on the scruffy Gosling. But just one year after splitting with longtime goody two shoes girlfriend and Best Kiss Award co-winner Rachel McAdams, we have to wonder what Gosling sees in the just-sprung Dunst.
We don't think we're the only ones who officially joined Team Gosling after his insanely loveable crackhead performance in Half Nelson, as opposed to his gooey Notebook role. And with Dunst and her hard-partying rep on his arm, we're gleefully reminded once again of Gosling's cinematic darker side. But Gosling wouldn't be the only benefactor should this sighting turn into a full-fledged fling. Gosling rarely makes an appearance in the tabloids or the clubs, so his mellow off-screen persona might help Dunst steer clear of the inevitable relapse stories. Whether or not this is just a case of stunt relationship casting, we're still giving the pair our nod of approval.
