Penn Badgley on the Pressure Facing Gossip Girl Character

Badgley, Penn
What makes Gossip Girl characters act so scandalous? You might not care, as long as it's entertaining.

But here's what Penn Badgley had to say on the topic:

"All these kids, excluding my character, have this pressure on them to become their parents and to uphold all this wealth and the whole image that comes with that.

It's something kids shouldn't have to deal with, and that's why they are so conflicted and torn, and they've got really awful personal lives.

The ones that are having sex and doing the drugs and living the ‘glamorous' lives will have to deal with the repercussions of that. The ones that have the most sex are the ones that feel the most empty."

Gossip Girl Quotes

Serena: It doesn't make sense!
Blair: Feelings never do. They get you all confused. Then they drive you around for hours before they drop you right back where you started.

We make our own fortunes, and call them fate. And what better excuse to choose a path than to insist it's our destiny? But at the end of the day, we all have to live with our choices ... no matter who's looking over our shoulder.
