Having first hit our screens as lothario Chuck Bass back in 2007, the actor has suggested to reporters that he’s happy to bid a fond farewell to Gossip Girl.

In an interview with Tatler magazine, the actor hinted that he thinks his character has run its course.

‘It’s all about the work you know,’ he said. ‘The feeling you get when you connect to the work.’

‘And that’s what I had with Chuck Bass in the beginning – I was fascinated by him. But now, to be completely honest, I’m ready to do something else.

‘Really ready to do something else.’

The 23-year-old also candidly spoke about his former relationship with Gossip Girl co-star Jessica Szohr for the first time, which ended in April last year.

‘Everyone’s dated each other, and then broken up, or whatever. It’s natural that romance would blossom.’

‘Blossom and then wilt,’ he added.

‘The wickedness of women! The heartbreakers, god damn them. I’ve learnt. And I feel stronger and wiser.’

Ouch…
