In the issue, Men.Style.com reports that the boys open up about what their sudden insta-fame has been like.
Chace Crawford says that he’s had more than a few things to overcome—notably “gayface.”
“Model turned actor, dime a dozen, eye candy, doesn’t know what he’s doing…and Perez Hilton says I have ‘gayface.’ So on top of everything else, I have to overcome gayface,” he complains.
Penn Badgley’s problem is that he just wants to be left alone. The actor describes not being able to walk a dog because he’s always being mobbed by photographers. But then the interviewer asks him if he actually owns a dog.
“No,” he says. “Everybody else does, though.” Uh, okay.
As for fashionista Ed Westwick, he’s loving it. Detailing a recent foray out with pals to see The Dark Knight, Westwick relates how he was swarmed by fans and came away feeling super-heroic himself.
“That’s me,” he says. “Batman. I am Batman. I am Batman,” he brags.
Funny how the gayface isn’t bothering him.
