debuted, introducing us both to the scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite, and to the sometimes equally-scandalous cast of actors who played our favorite Upper East Siders.
Did Leo have to awkwardly watch Blake and Ryan eye-f-cking each other across the table? I just wish Vanessa was like she is in the books a bit more.” reported rumors that the pair “avoid each other like the plague” on set.While the alleged details varied over time, from “Leighton thinks Blake is an egomaniac” to Lively's gripe with Meester's wardrobe budget, the basic rumor never really died down during the show’s six-year run.And it’s a new feeling, and it’s something that I wanna keep going with.I can walk a little taller feeling that I don’t have to be constantly apologizing for the work that I’ve done in the past.” Ouch.“Penn didn’t like being on in 2008. In August 2011, they were bike riding in New York (with Lukas Haas). Because in October 2011, she was with Ryan Reynolds, seen leaving his apartment in Boston where he was working on a movie. Because Ryan is on the cover of the new PEOPLE as the Sexiest Dad Alive and he’s talking about how their relationship started – and that’s not personal or private, at all, by the way. Two months later they were still together, spotted together in Santa Barbara. Lively and Reynolds have two daughters: James, who was born in 2014, and Ines, who was born in 2016. @vancityreynolds The permanence of your impact is undeniable... Let's kick it back to those early days, with Lively and Reynolds looking like they were having a blast at the had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single.

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley weren’t the only couple whose on-screen romance became a real-life relationship—in fact, with the exception of Chace Crawford and Taylor Momsen, everybody in the main cast apparently hooked up with at least one co-star.Leighton Meester and Sebastian Stan (who will always be Carter Baizen in our hearts, even now that he’s Marvel-famous) were a thing for a while, as were Ed Westwck and Jessica Szohr—which, we know, Chuck and Vanessa barely count as an on-screen romance, but they hook up that one time.
