Gossip Girl hottie Ed Westwick is featured in the March 2009 issue of Teen Vogue and I can’t wait to see it.
Here’s an excerpt from the story by Lauren Waterman:
As tempting as it might be to mistake Mr. Edward Westwick for a real-life version of his on-screen alter ego-almost everyone knows he plays Gossip Girl‘s always-entertaining Chuck Bass-the actor (who simply goes by “Ed”) is quick to insist that any similarities between them are purely superficial. “We look the same,” he says, “but that’s about it, darling.”
Well, that’s not quite it. While we’ll happily concede that the actor is likely not driven by the same “inner emptiness” and all-consuming “desire for revenge” that he ascribes to his recently orphaned character, Ed does share some of Chuck’s sunnier qualities-for example, that charmingly louche affect. And just as C’s every assignation is faithfully tracked by the show’s titular know-it-all narrator, Ed’s own rumored make-out sessions (with Drew Barrymore and, lately, costar Jessica Szohr) serve as fodder for numerous gossip Web sites and weekly tabloids. He’s cagey, of course, when it comes to specifics but says that his overall outlook on romance represents yet another big difference between Chuck and him: “I’m all for being in love,” he notes. “And whenever I like someone, I end up pretty much completely smitten.”

PS– Was I the only one annoyed that there wasn’t a new Gossip Girl episode this week?! Hello CW! You need to prepare me for things like this so I don’t have a complete and utter meltdown. —xoxo, Bree
