Ed Westwick: From Actor to Landscape Gardener

Ed Westwick: From Actor to Landscape Gardener

Gossip Girl’s resident troublemaker Ed Westwick, aka Chuck Bass, answered 17 questions for Seventeen magazine — everything from his first kiss to his dream job. Here are some highlights:

On his first kiss: “Um … 6? Well, what are we talking, we’re not talking proper kiss, right? Okay, 6 and … 10. No, is that bad? Should I say 11? I’m pure and innocent.”

On his celebrity crush: “Scarlett Johansson — she has been for a while, and always will be. I love her style.” (Too bad she’s engaged now!)

On his dream job: “Probably landscape gardening. I think gardens are fantastic, and I’d love to draw and design and stuff like that. I love just planting flowers during the summer. There’s something very humble about it, and natural and beautiful. When I need to think of like a peaceful scene or something, I think of my back garden in summertime. And whenever I hear the lawnmower next door, I always think it’s really peaceful.”

On his worst habit: “I bite my nails. I’ve been chewing on them for years. As long as you don’t chew through flesh it’s all right. I wouldn’t want a manicure. I’m a man’s man!
