Ed Westwick is in Sydney and we here at Sugar HQ are stoked! Ed is here to promote Virgin Mobile’s new Smart Cap plans and he’ll be at Virgin’s Pitt Street store tomorrow at 5pm for a fan event. After a short trip to Melbourne on Friday, he’s flying back to London and then heading to Paris to film the next season of Gossip Girl. Luckily, I had the chance to catch-up with Ed and enlisted the help of special correspondent BellaSugar—because Ed’s sexiness needs to be shared. And Chuck Bass did not disappoint, my darlings. He dished on being single, why he would never date Kristen Stewart, what he thinks about Leighton Meester possibly having a fling with Aussie Luke Bracey and whether or not Taylor Momsen is dressing too sexy these days. Phew. So take a deep breath and start reading!
PopSugar: You told BBC Radio earlier this month that you were single—is that still the case?
Aww, I mean you know. It’s a little like this and a little like that. Look, I’m 23. How tied down can somebody be at 23 these days?
PS: Do you have any celebrity crushes?
Yeah, but they’re all married! Scarlett Johansson is always one. Miranda Kerr is kind of one, but somebody told me she just got engaged. I like the older ones, the ones around my age, the Kristen Stewart’s of the world, don’t really do it for me. I’m a man with the eye on the older girl, I’m afraid.
PS: Who has the best American accent—you or Robert Pattinson?
PS: Leighton is currently filming Monte Carlo and has been spotted getting cosy with her Australian co-star Luke Bracey. Are you aware that Blair might be having a fling with an Australian dude?
I mean, look, I love the Aussies so…I don’t know the truth in it all. I’ll have to straighten her out when I see her next.
PS: Taylor Momsen has been making news with her band and some people say she is dressing too sexy for a 16-year-old—thoughts?
When you’re that young and that age you like experimenting with new looks and different things. She obviously likes the whole rock chick thing. I wish her the best.
PS: What’s up with your maroon shoes?
My maroon shoes? They’re actually a red/burgundy. I got them last week in a little store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I got them in blue as well.
PS: You’re known for having lots of sexy chest hair, would you ever consider waxing for a role?
It’s a funny thing, the other day I thought about doing it. Seriously, I was just thinking about doing it. I’m not going to do it anyway, now. I guess I would do it if I had to do it.
PS: Do you agree with people who say that England is out of the World Cup because Wayne Rooney waxed his chest?
Did he wax his chest?? Well, I have absolutely no time for Wayne Rooney right now. He should be shot. So there you go. He was terrible in the World Cup. He let us all down.
PS: You have two older brothers—are they single as well?
No, they’re both married.
PS: What did you do for your 23rd birthday on Sunday?
I have to say it wasn’t that glamorous. I basically watched England get kicked out of the World Cup and had a barbecue at my parent’s house with friends. So unfortunately this year it wasn’t too Hollywood.
PS: You filmed a movie called Chalet Girl during the Gossip Girl hiatus—tell us about that.
It’s a romantic comedy about two people from different worlds. It’s a cute little movie. It’ll be a good Christmas movie filmed at a ski resort in Germany. It will give people some laughs.
PS: How would you rate American girls, Australian girls and English girls if you had to rank them 1,2,3?
Aussie girls number one, English girls number two, American girls number three.
PS: What do you look for in a girl?
A good sense of dress, one that brings through their sense of self. A good sense of humour. Someone who’s not afraid to open up.
