Kirsten Dunst is back in action – dancing the nights away at New York City’s Beatrice Inn and hanging out with new guy Matt Creed.

Three months after leaving the Cirque Lodge in Utah after being treated for depression, the Spider-Man actress, who just bought a Tribeca penthouse, is shooting All Good Things in Connecticut with Ryan Gosling and making the rounds in downtown Manhattan.

Her go-to spots? A night owl by nature, Dunst, 26, was recently spotted having a late bite at the cavernous Bacaro on the Lower East Side, then heading to the Olsens’ fave haunt, the Beatrice Inn.

“She has become a regular at Beatrice,” says a source close to the actress. “She’s there almost every night of the week to dance, smoke and let loose.”

Dunst has recently been linked to Beatrice’s DJ, Matt Creed, fueling rumors of a romance. “They’ve been friends for years,” says Beatrice’s owner, Paul Sevigny.

Another source says that Dunst and Creed are “just friends” and that “there’s nothing romantic going on.”

A rep for the actress had no comment.

But Dunst seems to be back in the swing of things. On June 23, she kicked back at the Coldplay concert at Madison Square Garden, to see her pal, Chris Martin. “Kirsten really likes Chris,” says the source. “She bonded with him a few years ago at the MTV Music Awards in Miami.”
