Sebastian Stan Describes On-and-Off Set Romances

at . Comments

Leighton Meester and boyfriend Sebastian Stan may not be friendly on Gossip Girl, but in real life, he feels fortunate to be in a relationship with her.

“I’m a really lucky guy,” Stan, 25, said at the premiere of Taking Woodstock in New York City on Thursday. “Leighton is the most interesting, sophisticated, talented and extremely funny person that I know. She’s really hilarious.”

While Sebastian Stan gives his costar Ed Westwick the evil eye when his character Chuck Bass gets to make out with Meester’s Blair Waldorf, it’s all in jest - and he says everyone always remains professional when it comes to romantic scenes.

“It’s work and everyone shares the same mentality when it comes to that. We all laugh about it,” he says. “The good part is I get to go home with her.”

On Gossip Girl, Carter Baizen may be putting the moves on Serena van der Woodsen, but in real life, Sebastian Stan's heart is with his co-star Leighton Meester.

Besides, Stan gets his own kissing scenes with Blake Lively in the upcoming Season Three, which returns September 14. In preparation, the actor skips the breath mints and goes for an unconventional route of eating fruit before he puckers up.

“I try to stick to apples and pears to keep it more interesting,” he said.

Stan says that when his character Carter Baizen’s background is revealed, it will stir up trouble with the Upper East Siders - especially Serena van der Woodsen.

“They are revealing his history, where he comes from,” says Stan. “His whole background involves Serena’s character. It’s different from the other relationships.”

Ha. Yah cece will be happy!


I actually like leighton with sebastian more than ed or chace. I don't think ed is suitable for her,nor chace. Anyway no one has the business to decide which one leighton should be with, she is the one who decides. By the way, I like her choice since Sebastian has more than one quality better than Ed and chace, but people think that the characters in the show could be together in real life which is not true.


At first i hated this couple but i really like them now. Probs one of the most sweetest gossip girl interviews ever awwwwww!!! but i still think ed and leighton would be good together lol xx


Sebastian and Leighton are such a cute couple. I don't know how I feel about Carter and Serena though, I never really pictured them as a couple even though I know that they had histroy together. I guess we'll have to see how it turns out - I'm really excited to find out about Carter's past though!


I like that he doesn't pimp his relationship too! ;)


Hey, Fackin' Alpha get a life?! I'm entitled to my own opinions, as we all are. So chill out. Spaz.


Nahhh.. dont like him with leight.. Leight so deserve better.. JMO..he is just average..not that hot...


....i wonder how he feels about the "white hot angry sex scenes" b/w blair and chuck....................O.O

I like them better than Ed/Jess. He doesn't pimp his relationship too much!

[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.
