Ed Westwick may play a bad boy on Gossip Girl, but in the hearts of fans, he's oh so good! Here's the British Gossip Girl actor's recent "17 Questions" interview with Seventeen magazine ...
1. When was your first kiss?
Ed Westwick: Um ... 6? Well, what are we talking, we're not talking proper kiss, right? Okay, 6 and ... 10. No, is that bad? Should I say 11? I'm pure and innocent.
2. Who's your celebrity crush?
Ed Westwick: Scarlett Johansson — she has been for a while, and always will be. I love her style.
3. What's a girl fashion trend that confuses you?
Ed Westwick: None. As long as it's done the right way, I think it'll be attractive. It's not about what it is, it's about who's wearing it. From my limited knowledge of women's fashion, everything is pretty good.
Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick: A man's man.
4. What's the girly movie you secretly love?
Ed Westwick: There was a really good one, but I can't think of it.
5. Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
Ed Westwick: Chace Crawford! No, no. I don't know. Chace Crawford can play the villain. I'd like to see Daniel Day-Lewis spend three months getting into my character.
Ed Westwick: Watching Gossip Girl [laughs]. I can't stand watching myself on TV. I think I share the opinion of [Chuck Bass] that a lot of the audience shares: It's a "love to hate" kind of thing. As the season's progressed, I think everyone's had sympathy for him. I think he's an alluring character; he's very interesting. He has these slices of his personality. He can be the devil, but at times he can be very charming. It can be a very dangerous concoction. I think he has a good heart, but his heart is often tempted by corrupt desires.
7. What's your dream job?
Ed Westwick: Probably landscape gardening. I think gardens are fantastic, and I'd love to draw and design and stuff like that. I love just planting flowers during the summer. There's something very humble about it, and natural and beautiful. When I need to think of like a peaceful scene or something, I think of my back garden in summertime. And whenever I hear the lawnmower next door, I always think it's really peaceful.
8. If you could trade places with anyone in the world for one day, who would it be?
Ed Westwick: I'd probably choose an explorer in the Amazon or Vietnam. That'd be pretty cool!
9. Who in your family are you closest to?
Ed Westwick: Oh, I'm close to them all. We're a really tight-knit group. I have two older brothers. I am the baby. We're all very, very close. We're great communicators, so we get along really well.
10. What's your favorite Website?
Ed Westwick: Msn.co.uk, because I feel like I should know what's going on a little bit in England, and I can read about sports or something.
11. What's the fast food you can't live without?
Ed Westwick: I can pretty much live without fast food. I haven't eaten McDonald's in so long, but it's okay. I think the McDonald's in England is a little bit better than it is over here. My favorite thing on the menu is the Happy Meal. It's just enough.
12. What's your worst habit?
Ed Westwick: I bite my nails. I've been chewing on them for years. As long as you don't chew through flesh it's all right. I wouldn't want a manicure. I'm a man's man!
13. What's the last song you listened to on your iPod?
Ed Westwick: "Our House" by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
14. What's the last thing you bought?
Ed Westwick: The last thing I bought was probably a phone charger because I left my phone charger somewhere. Actually, I don't think it was. It was probably chips and dip.
15. What did you dream about last night?
Ed Westwick: I can't remember. I went to the IMAX, though, the other week, and watched The Rolling Stones' Shine a Light. It like brainwashed me, so I spent the whole night dreaming I was the drummer, but that I didn't know any of the songs!
16. How much money is in your wallet right now?
Ed Westwick: I don't have a wallet.
17. Fill in the blank: When I was 17, I was ....
Ed Westwick: Learning to drive.
