Exclusive Interview with Ed Westwick About Gossip Girl, J Edgar, The Filthy Youth and New Film Chalet Girl

Ed Westwick Tells Us He's Not Leaving Gossip Girl, Talks Valentine's Day Plans and New Film J Edgar at Chalet Girl UK Premiere

Last night I attended the Chalet Girl premiere at London's Westfield, and managed to catch up with the gorgeous star of the film, Ed Westwick, for a chat. He was utterly charming as I asked him about his upcoming project with Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCaprio, and he put rumours he's leaving Gossip Girl to rest. Here's what he said:

Do you prefer working on TV or movies?
I enjoy both... both are very different, TV moves a lot quicker. Film, you get a lot more time to spend on it. You go from project to project, and then all of a sudden you're at a lovely thing like this.

It's rumoured you want to move on from Gossip Girl, is that true?
That was taken out of context... what I was trying to say was I want to maximise my time so I can work on other projects as well as Gossip Girl. Why would I [want to move on]? I'm having a fantastic time. I've got a great character, a great cast, and I get to live in New York City.

Your character in the film has rock star ambitions, are you still playing music?
I had a band [The Filthy Youth], that was a little while ago, we broke up a long time ago. I just mess around on the side and play music on my own now.

To read about Ed's Valentine's Day plans and what he had to say about J Edgar, just

.

Do you have any Valentine's Day plans?
No no no, I think I'll probably be working, as it falls on a Monday so... I'll be a bit tied up. I'll be back in the States. I leave tomorrow night actually.

You have J Edgar coming up, can you tell us anything about that?
Yeah, I think we're doing that in March, so I'm very much looking forward to that. Exciting, definitely.

Stay tuned for more photos and chat from the film premiere last night!
