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 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.

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
