Listen up, Upper East Siders: Chuck Bass isn't chubby.
Asked to name the craziest rumor he's heard about himself, Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick tells E! News: "That I'm fat!"
"It was something like 'the wardrobe department on Gossip Girl has to keep changing his clothes due to his expanding waistline,'" he added, referring to an April In Touch tabloid report. "It's ludicrous!"
Westwick wasn't shy about showing off his bod, E! notes. He took off his shirt as he and girlfriend, costar Jessica Szohr, chilled by the pool at the Mondrian hotel in L.A. before hitting up Hollywood Life's Young Hollywood awards, where Westwick won the Breakthrough Male award on Sunday.
Asked how similar he is to his womanizing character, Westwick tells E! he likes to think he's a "little more secure and less destructive."
"Very fine," Westwick tells Usmagazine.com.
