Penn Badgley has had a lot of special moments with his Gossip Girl fans, but none was as scary as the run-in he had with 50 Catholic schoolgirls!

During a shoot at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, Penn ran into a crowd of “aggressive” fans outside of the museum’s steps.

“I tried to come down and wasn’t able to get to the Met because probably, like, 40 or 50 Catholic schoolgirls all swarmed me and pinned me up against a chain-link fence,” the actor told People, “At first, it was entertaining and then they started pulling at my clothes and it was a little aggressive.”

“This bodyguard came out of nowhere, reached out like I was holding on to a rock in raging rapids, and pulled me through it,” he said. “[It] was bizarre.”

Phew! What a close call!

Luckily for the actor, he’s now spoken for! Following a three years relationship with fellow Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, Badgley has settled down with actress Zoe Kravtiz. The couple has been going strong and is a staple on the GG set.

Let’s just hope Penn and Zoe won’t be running into any more schoolgirls in the future!
