Ed Westwick: ‘I’m Single’

Ed Westwick may be just as much of a heartbreaker as his Gossip Girl alter ego, Chuck Bass.

In what may not come as welcome news to his co-star and apparent on-again girlfriend Jessica Szohr, Westwick has announced he’s not romantically attached to her — or anyone else for that matter.

The actor, 23, tells the UK’s Closer magazine (via Monsters and Critics:)

“I’m single! My English accent drives American girls crazy but I haven’t got time for romance.”

But it seemed Westwick had plenty of time to smooch, stroll NYC and attend U.S. Open tennis matches with Szohr, 25, just last week. Adding insult to injury, Ed declares his true crush in the Closer interview: Rachel Weisz.
