Quotes

#Quote
1Gossip Girl (2007) is based on a woman who spreads gossip on the internet, so I guess the concept of the show is stretching out into real life. People chop and change in their relationships. Life imitates art and art imitates life.
2[on his chemistry with Leighton Meester] I'm madly in love with Leighton, so that's what helps on my behalf, maybe so much that she doesn't even have to be in love with me. I love enough, she's mine. I'm incredibly close with her, she's a lovely girl.
3This is my trademark: I rip my T-shirt. I'm into the whole showing-a-bit-of-chest-hair thing.
4My weakness is the neck - when girls get too close to my neck, crazy things start to happen.
5I'm childish at times, passionate, a little crazy, I guess. And I pride myself on being one of the last romantics. (on his dating style at 21).
6If I want to go out and drink and throw a glass in the street, I'll do it. As long as the reason is that I want to have fun and not that I want to create some sort of tension around me. Then I'd be a d**k, but I'm not. (on his late-night behavior rumors).
7I like the glamorous indie rock look, like the Libertines. But you know, without the heroin needle sticking out of my arm. (on his fashion sense).
8I'm not a player. (on rumors he's a womanizer, like his character Chuck Bass).
9Shaving every day. (on what's annoying about being on Gossip Girl).
10They want Chuck, not me. Chicks dig a bad boy. (on why does he think women are attracted to him).
11I'm a showman. I wouldn't say I'm a rock star, though...All right, in my dream world, I am.
12Music is my release.
13My brother and I had a band, Fangs of fury, for about five minutes (when he was 6 years old), I just sat and watched him. So we were a two-men band, with one man doing something.
14I've always connected with music. Life's not always what you see; it's what going on in your head. Music is what comes out of your subconscious.
15The whole buzz of the city turns me on. I'm a night time kind of guy, so I love going out. I always sense potential in the night - especially during the summer. When the sun's out the girls put on nice dresses. It's like London in the summertime: there's all this energy that's been laying under the earth for eight months of the year that's just been bubbling and cooking until finally it comes out with the sun.
16I'm not into sceney spots, so we hang out in people's apartments. I'm only 20. And I'd rather be known for my career rather than my whereabouts. To be respected as an actor it doesn't help to be seen out in the clubs.
17But there are a lot more differences than similarities between Chuck and me. When I was 17, I had certain characteristics of Chuck's, but obviously the context was different. I didn't come from the Upper East Side and I didn't have the same desires. Oh, and I didn't have a string of lovers. I'm a good boy.
18My brother Will was more of a devil. Though I was easily led astray.
