Weinstein Co. release premieres in New York
Ryan Gosling dressed for the occasion, donning a blue velvet blazer at the Gotham premiere of the Weinstein Co.’s “Blue Valentine,” presented by Quintessentially at MoMA on Tuesday.
Gosling, costar Michelle Williams and their onscreen daughter, played by Faith Wladyka, lived in a house for one month to prepare for the film about a married couple. Gosling said, “We fought all day. We went to Sears and took family pictures. We did everything.”
Williams clarified, “We did not sleep in the house. We lived there during the day and went home our separate ways at night. I don’t want anybody getting the wrong idea.”
Producer Jamie Patricof weighed in on the uncanny resemblance between Gosling and director Derek Cianfrance: “I think it’s like when you have a dog, and after a while they start looking like you, after seven years of them being together.”
“Well, I guess I’m the dog then,” said Cianfrance. “He spent so much time playing me but I think I’m playing him now.”
The “Blue” company celebrated at the Standard, where Chace Crawford and Blake Lively rubbed shoulders with Kelsey Grammer and new fiancee Kayte Walsh.
