Gossip: Stewart and Pattinson reunite at L.A. dive bar

GERMANY-CINEMA-BREAKING-DAWN

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are reunited after his latest stint filming in Australia, and the couple reportedly celebrated by hitting up their favorite local dive bar, L.A.’s Ye Rustic Inn, according to E! News. “They seemed really happy to be with each other. Rob and Kristen were having so much fun together,” a source says. “They sat in the back of the bar in a booth and were laughing. At one point, they were standing at the bar and were just being normal, as any boyfriend and girlfriend would be with each other. They were touchy-feely. She was holding on to his jacket and had her hand on his back. They were just being cute.”

Just because Lindsay Lohan is facing 90 days in rehab doesn’t mean she can’t keep cultivating her love life. The troubled starlet is rumored to be dating NYC-based club promoter and musician Avi Snow, according to E! News, though sources say the pair’s relationship is still in “the early stages.” But he certainly seems to be getting a lot of time with Lohan before she gets locked up: Snow was reportedly one of the passengers on the private jet that whisked Lohan to court Monday morning, and after she had her latest mug shot taken the next day she hurried over to a show Snow’s band put on at a private Santa Monica club.

Taylor Swift has reportedly set her sights on 20-year-old pro surfer John John Florence, according to Life & Style, though their budding relationship is still mostly on a telecommunications level. “He and Taylor have been text messaging,” a source says. “Apparently she contacted him. I don’t think they have hung out yet. They’ve just been chatting. John John doesn’t want to ruin things, so he’s being careful not to say too much.” He’s apparently taking that job very seriously. When asked by an Australian TV reporter earlier this month about “a little bit of something” she had heard about him and Swift, Florence responded, “It’s kind of a secret thing going on right now. Can’t bust it out in the public just yet.”

Bad news for Ryan Gosling fans: “The Place Beyond the Pines” star plans to take a break from acting, according to the Huffington Post. “I’ve been doing it too much. I’ve lost perspective on what I’m doing. I think it’s good for me to take a break and reassess why I’m doing it and how I’m doing it,” he says. “I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.”

 Jon Hamm‘s physical attributes are causing quite a stir on the “Mad Men” set, according to the New York Daily News. “This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” a source tells the newspaper. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.” And while the wardrobe mandate is garnering plenty of giggles, Hamm’s rep is not amused. “It is ridiculous and not really funny at all,” the rep tells the newspaper. “I’d appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that’s been blogged about 1,000 times.”
