Leighton Meester Denies Dating Chace Crawford

at . Comments

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, Chace Crawford

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."

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.
