My brother Will was more of a devil. Though I was easily led astray.
But 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.
I'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.
The 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.
I'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.
My 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.
Music is my release.
I'm a showman. I wouldn't say I'm a rock star, though...All right, in my dream world, I am.
They want Chuck, not me. Chicks dig a bad boy. (on why does he think women are attracted to him).
Shaving every day. (on what's annoying about being on Gossip Girl).
I'm not a player. (on rumors he's a womanizer, like his character Chuck Bass).
I 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).
I'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).
My weakness is the neck - when girls get too close to my neck, crazy things start to happen.
This is my trademark: I rip my T-shirt. I'm into the whole showing-a-bit-of-chest-hair thing.
[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.
Gossip 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.
