The Gossip Girl actor, 26, and the After Earth actress, 24, are "all good," a source says of the exes. "It wasn't a sad breakup." So that's good at least.

The couple, who shared an apartment together in NYC, are focused on their careers for the time being. "It just wasn't working," the source reiterates.

"It really did end on good terms, though."

Safe to say George Clooney will not be voting for Herman Cain in 2012.

While the GOP Presidential hopeful raised eyebrows this week by telling those at "Occupy Wall Street" protests in NYC to blame themselves for their joblessness and/or lack of prosperity, The Ides of March star stands behind the movement.

"It seems great," he said. "I feel terrible because we've been on tour for so long, I haven't quite been able to catch up with the whole thing and [be more involved]."

"I'm a Democrat so I support Democrats," Clooney said, adding that "I'm not one of those people that runs and hides when things start going south."

Slightly less famous but more directly involved is Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley, who was picketing personally this week. Yep, carrying a sign and all.

"I mean, listen, it's cheesy," he said, "but I want to do whatever I can."

"Let's be honest: I'm on f--king Gossip Girl. It's absurd that celebrity power is what it is, even on that scale, but, like, use any tool you have, you know?"

Well put. Other stars such as Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, Russell Simmons and Michael Moore have also been spotted picketing at Zuccotti Park.

So much for any Blake Lively-Penn Badgley romance rekindling.

Although Blake's on the market (and possibly dating Ryan Reynolds) after splitting with Leonardo DiCaprio, her ex-boyfriend and co-star has a new love interest as well.

It's Zoe Kravitz, actress and daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz!

The Gossip Girl star and his two loves: Jheri curl and Zoe.

Penn Badgley and Zoe Kravitz have been dating for a while, E! reports, but have only just recently graduated into street PDAs in full view of celebrity news cameras.

Seems like these two are hitting it off nicely. Someone had better tell Gossip Girl so she can send out a blast. What will the women of the Upper East Side think?

Are Gossip Girl co-stars, childhood friends and former lovebirds Blake Lively and Penn Badgely back together after their unexpected breakup?

The adorable pair split last year after three years together, but it seems as though working closely together has rekindled this old flame.

Tournament of THG Couples Bracket

According to celebrity gossip stalwart Perez Hilton, the gorgeous former couple were spotted “holding hands” at Coachella last weekend.

Blake has been linked to Ryan Gosling since splitting with Penn, but there was nothing serious about those rumors. So we'll see ...

It's unclear if Dan and Serena will also get back together on Gossip Girl.

Gossip Girl stars Penn Badgley and Blake Lively have ended their three-year romance, a rep for the twosome exclusively tells the new issue of Us. OMFG!

They called it quits in mid-September, amicably. "They’re professionals," an insider says of the pair. "They're still good friends and hang out on the set."

The duo, who met as preteen actors in L.A., then began dating as their characters were dating on Gossip Girl, "kept this news to themselves for a while."

Blake Lively and Penn Badgley have broken up after almost three years.

Indeed, they have always taken a drama-free approach to their relationship, and that includes the breakup aspect of it. They just go about their business.

Even those closest to the twosome may be shocked to hear the news. "Nobody on set had any idea," says the insider. "They're really just private."

We're sorry to hear about this breakup news, although it does put a new spin on Blake's rumored hookup with Ryan Gosling earlier this month.

Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, whose characters used to date on the hit CW show, have been dating more than a year and a half.

According to reports, they are looking to extend that ... forever!

A close pal of Blake's repors that it is just a matter of time. The couple are expected to announce their engagement sooner rather than later.

Sunday is Badgley's 23rd birthday, and while some speculate they might have something else to celebrate then, others say talk is premature.

Just a little, though.

''I think if November 1 was Blake's birthday, he might have surprised her with a ring,'' quipped the source. ''But my guess is over the holidays.''

No question, Penn Badgley and Blake Lively are a cute couple, and one that likes to keep a low profile as well. They would have our blessing.

Penn and Blake. Dan and Serena. They're hot by any name!

Not all celebrity look-alikes are created equal.

Admittedly, this installment is fueled largely by similar hairstyles among the two stars - but sometimes, as we saw with this Rihanna lookalike, that's all you need.

A John Mayer Picture

THG reader jogirl20099 sent in this photo comparison of John Mayer and Penn Badgley. Okay, it's a younger John Mayer and a much younger Penn Badgley.

Still, it's good enough for our purposes (contact us to submit your own)!
