Ed Westwick And Pals Ostracize Jessica Szohr While there are no other details about the break-up so far, we bet anything that it was Blake "I've been on the cover of (and why wouldn't you?), the real reason is because Blake wanted to settle down and get married and Penn didn't!Penn Badgley learned about ex Blake Lively's top-secret wedding to beau Ryan Reynolds not too long before the rest of the world did.But the "Gossip Girl" actor, who still shares the small screen with Lively on the CW series, says he couldn't be more thrilled for the newlywed couple.PHOTOS: SECRET CELEBRITY WEDDINGS "I'm so happy for her," he told People magazine about his ex's newfound love."I think it's everything that it should be." Lively, 25, and Badgley, 25, first met on the set of "Gossip Girl" and officially came clean about their relationship in 2008 after fending off rumors for a year, claiming they were just friends.While appearing on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” the 28-year-old “Cymbeline” star was asked about his best on-screen kiss. In our opinion, though, Penn’s admission is actually kind of a compliment to Blake.“I’ll say Blake because we actually had a relationship at the time,” he spilled. After all, for a character nicknamed “Lonely Boy,” Penn’s Dan Humphrey sure didn’t have any problem keeping the ladies around.
“When you’re involved in something like this, you have to work really hard to see it from the outside,” Penn said of the “Gossip” craze.
Or what about when “The Vampire Diaries” stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder made our worlds complete with their IRL romance?
Unfortunately, though, those relationships don’t always work out (see both examples above), which can make things super awkward if your on-screen characters are still very much together.
Actors dating other actors is not a surprise in Hollywood.
They run in the same circles, so why not, you know? They’re spending hours upon hours with one another, so it’s practically an inevitability.
