Leighton Meester Denies Dating Chace Crawford
Yes, he's dreamy. But Leighton Meester is shooting down talk of a real-life Gossip Girl romance with her, co-star Chace Crawford.
"For the record, not true!" Leighton told People at The Help Group's Annual Teddy Bear Ball, where CW honcho Dawn Ostroff was being honored.
But Meester, 21, does admit that Crawford is one of her favorite costars.
"I'm really close to Chace," Leighton said. "We're really good friends. Along with Nicole Fiscella, who plays Isabel on the show. We're all just really happy people. We have the same views on life."
Leighton Meester says she and Chace Crawford aren't an item.
There certainly were no visible sparks at the Teddy Bear bash. Crawford, 22, who has been linked to Carrie Underwood, sat next to Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively, while Meester sat across the table.
This admission by Leighton Meester follows a story in yesterday's New York Post suggesting Chace and Carrie had broken up, while Leighton and Chace Crawford were seen kissing off the set.
Blake Lively, for one, says she's sick of all the, well, gossip.
"The biggest thing I've noticed is fans kind of want us to be our characters," she said. "Like Leighton [dating] Chace, and me and Leighton hating each other. Those are our characters. That's not us in real life."
