Chace Crawford Calls ‘Twelve’ Co-Star 50 Cent a ‘Bear’

Sponsored post: One’s a scruffy-faced pretty boy known for setting female hearts aflutter on Gossip Girl. The other’s a burly rapper known for his gritty rhymes and taking a bullet on occasion. But Chace Crawford and 50 Cent apparently have more in common than meets the eye.

Crawford and 50 Cent (real—and acting—name: Curtis Jackson) co-star in Joel Schumacher’s new drug drama Twelve (they play dealers who bond over their illegal activities), and Crawford tells MTV that, despite the seeming dissimilarities, they managed to bond in real life on the set too. Recalling how he and Jackson traded tales of their love for acting between sets, Crawford notes, 

“I got to work with him a bit. He’s a bear. He’s good. He’s an interesting guy.”

Maybe Jackson can teach Crawford a thing or two about rapping next?

Twelve, which co-stars Kiefer Sutherland and Emma Roberts, is in theaters now.
