PENN BADGLEY Did He Give Blake Lively A Wedding Gift?


It’s always awkward when you find yourself having to still go to work with someone you might have broken up with, right? Well, Penn Badgely must know the feeling as he and Blake Lively continued to work together on the set of Gossip Girl last year, despite the fact that they were no longer romantically involved IRL. Penn opens up to Elle Magazine on how it was working with her, plus a few other things, too. Here are some highlights:

On what it was like working with ex Blake Lively after she got married last year:

“We were ultimately professional but no, I didn’t send a wedding gift.”

When asked if women expect him to be sensitive in real life as his Gossip Girl character was nicknamed Lonely Boy:

“Some expect me to be sensitive.  But the kind of women I’m interested in – they’re smart enough to not expect me to be Dan.  In fact, they probably didn’t watch the show.”

On ever talking advantage of his Gossip Girl fame:

“I’ve had some fun nights.  But I learned on that that stuff is never satisfying in the end.  There’s a reason the French call the moment of orgasm la petite mort, ‘the little death.’  No matter how good the moment was, the moment after is always revealing.”

On what it’s like to be in a relationship as an actor:

“As an actor, being in a relationship you have this opportunity to have something really exceptional, because you don’t have a regimented schedule or lifestyle.  But then it can also be very warped.  You have on-camera romances, which ordinarily I don’t have a problem with.  There are complications being an object of attention.  I’ve found it’s  a double-edged sword.  But I’m happy to wield it.”
