Penn Badgley & Chace Crawford Look Back on 'Gossip Girl': 'It Was Ahead of Its Time'

Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford are in a reminiscent mood in their new feature for Variety.

The two Gossip Girl actors looked back on the series that launched their careers and opened up about what the experience was like for them.

However, the two do admit that it’s been quite a while since they’ve watched the series.

“I haven’t seen it in so long. It would be very interesting to watch it now. Have you seen it recently?” Penn asked Chace, who said that someone would have “to strap me to a gurney and pop my eyes open like ‘Clockwork Orange.’ But no, it would be interesting to see the first couple maybe.”

Penn adds that the last time he saw the show was with his wife, Domino Kirke, when they first started dating.

“It must’ve been six months after we met. She had never seen it, and that’s the last time I can remember seeing an episode,” he says. “I remember even then, it has nothing to do with the show, but it was very hard to watch. These snapshots of yourself when you’re 20, 21, 22 years old. Who can enjoy that? Sometimes it’s just uncomfortable.”

Chace and Penn do feel that the series was ahead of its time for jumpstarting the social media age.

“I remember even meeting a publicist that first season, and she was talking about this thing called Twitter. And as she explained Twitter, I was like, ‘What is this nonsense? I don’t want to have a Twitter account, and you tweet. What is this bird thing?’” Penn recalled. “That’s something that actually years later, I think we got to give credit to ‘Gossip Girl.’”

Chace added, “It was ahead of its time.”

Ed Westwick Responds to Backlash from 'Gossip Girl' Fans Who Were Unhappy with His Announcement

Ed Westwick has a message for fans who may have been upset about the announcement that he teased on social media.

The 32-year-old actor teased fans on Sunday and the hint that he gave for his big announcement was “xoxo.” If you’re unaware, “XOXO” was the way the character known as “Gossip Girl” on the series would sign off from her messages.

Most fans assumed that Ed was announcing involvement in the upcoming Gossip Girl reboot, but he instead revealed a line of face masks he created with that Gossip Girl tagline.

Ed took to Twitter to respond to people who were not happy with the announcement. He explained how the purpose of the initiative was to raise money for charity.

“For those of you that are upset about teasing my collection with the design graphic to raise money for @KickItOut: I hope you can check out the charity and learn more about their mission, who they are helping and the impact it will make in our world to combat racism and discrimination. It is important to me to use my platform to spread love, bring awareness to various organizations and do what I can to make a difference. Love, Ed,” he wrote.

Ed added, “While a GG reboot would be a great distraction, this is not the time for distractions. It is important we focus on the issues at hand, and do what we can to help, even if we think it’s something small.”
