Gossip Girl Jessica Szohr reveals all on romance with co-star Ed Westwick
The stars – who play Vanessa and Chuck in the hit US show – hooked up after meeting on set.
And although they may have initially tried to keep their budding relationship below the readar, Szohr was happy to spill to Teen Vogue, describing Westwick as ‘awesome and smart and talented and adorable, and we make each other laugh.’
Painting a picture of just a typical twenty-something couple she added, ‘We go to dinners, have nights by ourselves and fun romantic times in general. And I like just cuddling up on the couch.’
As for how their off-screen romance kicked off, she described how they started out as firm friends: ‘It can be a little awkward when all of a sudden (you have feelings for) someone you’d call to talk about a different boyfriend,’ she described.
‘But there wasn’t a lot of thinking and talking. It kind of just happened. We had fun together, and we were like, ‘All right, let’s see where this goes.”
A veritable hot bed of romance, the Gossip Girl set has spawned an array of star pairings. Blake Lively and Penn Badgeley got together while playing on-screen lovers Serena and Dan during season one, while Leighton Meester, aka Blair Waldorf dates Sebastian Stan, who plays Carter Baizen.
