Chace Crawford Just Told a Story That He Says Blake Lively Loves!

Chace Crawford had the opportunity to become a Chippendales dancer and he’s opening up about the funny story in an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!

The 35-year-old Gossip Girl actor appeared on the show on Monday (September 21) to promote the second season of The Boys, which is airing now on Amazon Prime Video.

Blake Lively actually loves this story. I’ve never gotten to fully tell it. So yes, I did turn [Chippendales] down. I lived in New York. It’s cold, I liked to work out in the gym in my building and usually no one’s ever up there, except this one guy, he’d always be up there,” he said.

Chace said the guy was the type of man that would wear “cologne” and “tight clothes” to the gym and thought he was a trainer.

“He comes up to me one day, a bit of a close talk, super nice by the way, but he’s like, ‘Are you like a model-type? Are you a model?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m kinda like a workout alone, no conversation type,’” Chace said. “I’m teasing. He was very nice.”

“He asked me for some headshots, which I, you know, usually carry to the gym, but didn’t have them that day,” he jokingly said. “He goes, ‘I do this bootcamp. Would you like to try out for Chippendales?’”

Chace said he politely turned down the offer and he’s glad his “plan B” worked out well. We are too!

Take a look back at what Chace and the rest of the Gossip Girl cast looked like in 2007!
