Ed Westwick Recalls Encounter with David Beckham

by 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, 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.
