Penn Badgley Really Looks Like This Now

at . Comments

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."

I think Dan's hair made him look sexy in season 3 and 2. He looked his best in Easy A. Why can't he look like that now?

Wow Dan is taking the breakup with Blair way harder than I thought...


He will fit the scorned brooklynite role so nicely with this look. Keep up the good work. Trolls will love you Penn and I mean it with a lulzy way.


As I already wrote Penn changed his hairstyle between each season. And now he changed hairstyle, but he went from worse to worse! It's still the problem of his hair! Beard is not a problem, I even think with the beard Penn looks masculine and serious! But the hair is still ridiculous! Serena must to catch Dan and take him to the hairdresser, if both of them think to be together in season 6!


Who's this homeless creature? Seriously, give this creature a pair of scissors and a razor!


seriously he started smoking and stopped working out and shaving...


And it all started with Lenny Kravitz´s daughter... who looks like she dresses from trash cans...seriously Penn stop dating her and start looking delicious again..


i like the beard, it looks clean and nice, though combined with that hair his face just looks so... long


did someone say hipster? more like hipster doofus


This is disgusting, and I can't believe he showed up to a Coach event like this. It's really not that hard to shave.

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.
