Seth Green has me in stitches during the Sex Drive special screening held at Tribeca Grand Hotel in NYC.

“This film is about sexual exploration,” my reporter pal begins.

Seth breaks in. “What did you say? You have a sexual expiration? That’s not true. 80 year olds are still doing it. There’s life for you, don’t worry about it.”

She soldiers on with her question. “Can you talk about when you lost your virginity?”

“I’m hoping it’s tonight,” Seth yuks. “Are you free? Are you game? Come on, Sis. Let’s write an article worth publishing.”

In this comedy, a high school senior drives across the country to hook up with a girl he met online. What’s the best roadtrip Seth has taken? “Still to come,” he tells me.

Here is the lovely Katrina Bowden, who brings her mom along. When my reporter pal greets her as Mrs. Bowden, she fights back. “Call me Karen, don’t call me Misses. That makes me sound old!”

What’s the most over-the-top thing a guy has done to win Katrina’s heart?

“Once someone traveled from really faraway to see me as a surprise, which was very nice and really surprising also,” she tells me. “It worked! It was really sweet.”

Sadly, they’re not together anymore and Katrina is available for wooing.

Attack of the Gossip Girls! Leighton Meester, wearing Jason Wu, and Taylor Momsen, wearing Dolce and Gabbana, slide through.

Gossip dad Matthew Settle gives props to costars Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford. “They’re naughtier than I was back when I was naughty,” he says. What does he think of Ed’s makeout sesh with Drew Barrymore? “It’s good to have an older woman in your life sometimes,” he says. “They show you the ropes, you sponge their culture, she’ll help him perfect his accent even more. She’s a beautiful woman.”

What is Gossip Girl star Connor Paolo’s drink of choice? “Milk,” he says. “It keeps you vitalized, keeps your bones strong.” Who is his celebrity crush? “Hopefully I can follow in Ed’s footsteps,” he tells me, referring to his buzzworthy buss with Drew. But his tastes veer a little more senior. “If I was dating Judy Dench, how awesome would that be?  She’s a dame! I could get knighted out of it.”

Sex Drive is in theaters tomorrow. And, pick up the OK! on newsstands this week for more Gossip Girl dish. Zac and Vanessa/Young, Rich and In Love is the cover line.
