Nearly a decade since Gossip Girl ended, stars Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley took a stroll down reminiscence lane for Variety‘s Actors on Actors series. While Penn’s character, Dan Humphrey, was a blogger who spent loads of time on-line (wink wink), Penn, 33, was completely in opposition to know-how. Chace, 34, recalled a hilarious story about Dan getting a tremendous piece of tech in 2007 that he completely rejected.
“Remember, ’07 was when the very first iPhone came out. I remember you got it. I remember you had it at a Halloween party. You had the first iPhone, and think about that now. I remember we were more about camera phones and this and that. There wasn’t social media,” The Boys star mentioned. Penn wasn’t as thrilled concerning the telephone, he mentioned. It was all his onscreen, and actual life girlfriend, Blake Lively‘s fault.
“Blake got me that,” Penn mentioned. “I literally was like, ‘I don’t want this thing. It’s so cumbersome, and it has all these apps on it.’” While their characters dated on and off on Gossip Girl, Penn and Blake had a 3 12 months relationship in actual life. They dated from 2007 to 2010, and stayed mates. She’s now married to Ryan Reynolds, in fact. Penn’s married to Domino Kirke.
The You star mentioned that he additionally had no concept find out how to use social media on the time, and was resistant at first. “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?’”
Both Chace and Penn can’t consider that (SPOILER) Dan turned out to be Gossip Girl, both. “At the end of Gossip Girl the show, whatever your reaction is on whether it was smart to do that or not, that he’s Gossip Girl — it didn’t really line up with the character of Dan. Right?” Chace mentioned, to which Penn agreed. “It’s interesting that regardless of my performance, the fact that it’s simply me, just one of the main characters of the show called Gossip Girl, and I ended up being Gossip Girl,” Penn mentioned.
