Yes, he's dreamy, she admits. But Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester is deflecting talk of a real-life romance with her co-star, Chace Crawford.
"For the record, it's not true!" Meester told People at The Help Group's Annual Teddy Bear Ball, where CW chief Dawn Ostroff was being honored.
This admission by Leighton Meester follows a story in yesterday's New York Post suggesting that Crawford and Carrie Underwood had broken up and that Leighton Meester had been seen kissing her Gossip Girl co-star off-set.
Leighton Meester does call Chace Crawford one of her favorite co-stars.
"I'm really close to Chace," Leighton said. "We're really good friends."
The two attended the Teddy Bear gala, though there were no palpable signs of them dating, such as Chace and Leighton sucking face or anything. It didn't happen.
Crawford, who has been spotted Carrie Underwood many times this fall, sat next to another Gossip Girl co-star, Blake Lively, while Meester sat across the table.
Lively, for one, says she's sick of all this celebrity gossip.
"One thing I've noticed is that fans kind of want everybody to be their character," she said. "Like Leighton [dating] Chace, and me and Leighton hating each other. Those are our characters on the show. That's not us in real life."
