Ed Westwick Recalls Encounter with David Beckham

at . Comments

Here's a funny anecdote about how of our beloved stars.

British actor Ed Westwick, fast emerging as fans' favorite Gossip Girl cast member, admits he was tongue-tied when he ran into soccer legend David Beckham in a bathroom.

The 21 year-old tells the U.K. magazine Reveal that he met the former Manchester United football star at a party in New York, one "that was so grand David Bowie was sitting at the next table and shook hands with George Clooney."

"I went to the toilet and there was David Beckham. I couldn't say anything, I just ran out. A friend tried to persuade me to say, 'Hello,' but I couldn't do it. It was ridiculous."

Ed Westwick Smiles

Ed, who watched Beckham long before he became famous as Chuck Bass, added that "had a Beckham shirt when I was a kid ... he was the one I watched growing up."

Westwick admis that if the same thing happened again - well, the same thing would happen again. "I just can't go up to him. I can't do it," he says.

Ed is so cute!
I LOVE him to death!:")


I love Brits. I feel they're always so shy and humble even when they have achieved international success. Like Ed!!! Also like Robert Pattinson. Also like Alex Pettyfer (well maybe he's not really that successful) Go Brits! love the accents. And go Americans too!


Aww...that's so cute!


Somersaults in a good way coz he is so damn HOT!


Aww bless! David Beckham is like the king of football here in the UK but more of a celebrity in the US (weird) but I know how he feels i think i would die if i met any of them. With Beckham I wouldn't know where to start... his amazing career and goals in football or his Armani ads lol. Ed westwick has that something that makes my stomach do somersaults.
I'm so proud to be British! But also love America


too cute for words.

Ed is mine. everyone stay away. =p


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.
