Penn Badgley vows he will not look like this come Gossip Girl Season 6.
Somehow we doubt Dan Humphrey fans will be too disappointed there.
The actor, 25, showed off his bushy beard during COACH's summer party at The Highline in NYC June 19, but admitted to New York Magazine's Vulture he's "probably going to shave it in about a week."
The reason Badgley grew it in the first place, he said, was that it gave him "a chance to try" a new look. "I've never really had the opportunity to grow one ... because of work. And I know everybody hates it."
His words, not ours.
When Badgley spoke to Us Weekly at the star-studded bash, he said his look is "always changing," just not on camera. He adds, "I actually looked like this a year ago, but nobody saw it, and then I had to shave."
With Gossip Girl ending its six season run this fall, Badgley says, "It'll be bittersweet. I'm sure we all want to go on to ... not bigger things, but different things. It will be a complicated feeling of ambivalence."
