Penn Badgley on the Pressure Facing Gossip Girl Character

by at . Comments
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."
