With Gossip Girl reportedly about to out a major character, the real-life intrigue of one of its male stars seems to be the thread Hollywood watchers are following.
The NY Daily News‘ Rush & Molloy found “‘Gossip Girl’ hottie Ed Westwick brushing off pesky Internet rumors that he and co-star Chace Crawford are gay. ‘It’s just because we live together, but we’re just mates,’ the British actor shrugged at the Audi Forum party.”
Now Westwick’s supposedly gay? That’s certainly a new one. TMZ grilled Crawford over the weekend on the rumors about he and Chasez, but didn’t get much of a response. Co-star Leighton Meester said of the twosome: “I can say with absolute certainty that’s not true.”
Of course, what’s to be expected when you star on a show that centers around a blog and its gossip? As Defamer notes, “This could be the most ambitious viral marketing campaign in network history!”
