English actor Ed Westwick has revealed how he is still surprised by how big an impact his fame has on his everyday living. Ed admitted that the success of the show Gossip Girl has made him such a huge star and he sometimes has to take a step back to remember who he is and what is actually going on around him. One such case was at the premiere for the movie J. Edgar.
Westwick explained, “Yeah, I am. I mean, it's nuts. It's still nuts. I was at the premiere for J. Edgar and we were coming out of the premiere, which was at Mann's Chinese Theatre, and I was crossing the street to the Roosevelt hotel where the cocktail reception was. I had to get a police escort across the street and I was like, 'What is going on right now?!'”
He added, “It's daunting, but it's amazing that everyone's really still digging the show. It's great. We're still having fun doing it, so it works all around, I guess.” Ed Westwick recently admitted that, while he still loves working on the show Gossip Girl, he does also feel that he needs to push on and start making more movies. Gossip Girl continues on The CW on Monday nights.
