Penn Badgley is playing favorites! The Gossip Girl star revealed he likes working on scenes with Leighton Meester best, but what about his ex-girlfriend Blake Lively?
In a new interview with Nylon magazine, Penn was asked who he thought his Gossip Girl character Dan’s soul mate is. And while answering the question, he also revealed some information about himself!
“Blair, actually. Definitely,” Penn said of Leighton’s character. “I think Blair is Dan’s soul mate.”
“I don’t know if they’re ever going to get together,” he warned, “but I’ll tell you that I’ve never enjoyed any scenes on the show as much as those scenes with Leighton Meester, strictly intellectually as an actor.”
Penn’s character was a couple with Blake’s character Serena for a long time on the show and it mimicked their real-life relationship. Penn and Blake ended their three year relationship in September 2010.
“There’s a whole other thing — like everything that happened early on in the show, like the obvious Dan and Serena stuff, that moved me in a different way for obvious reasons, but strictly as an actor, those scenes with Blair are the best.”
Do you think Penn’s ex Blake could still be offended by that? Or is she too busy focusing on her new love interest, Ryan Reynolds?
