Ashley Olsen, joining beau Justin Bartha on the Las Vegas set of his new movie, The Hangover as it filmed on the roof of Caesars Palace. “She was cute, laughing and giggling throughout,” a source says. “She was wearing a headset and listening to the whole production while Justin was shooting.” Between takes, the two interacted, and Bartha would touch her face tenderly. According to the source, he referred to Olsen as his “girlfriend.” While in Sin City, the two stayed in a suite in the Augustus Tower at Caesars Palace, and Olsen relaxed in the spa while Bartha continued filming.

New Hollywood lounge Bardot opened its doors to friends for a low-key evening of old school tunes spun by Ryan Gosling and a live band and burlesque show. The actor, looking dapper in black pants and a white button-down shirt, played tunes from an elevated deejay booth while guests enjoyed small plates of American bistro-styled food. A casual Catherine Keener chatted with friends near her table, while Brothers & Sisters’ Emily VanCamp sipped wine over dinner with a pal. Gosling seemed confident with his deejay gig, and later checked out the live band in the neighboring room. The night ended with more tunes from Gosling, including ’80s favorites like “Walk Like an Egyptian.”
