Penn Badgley Details Filming Gossip Girl With Ex Blake Lively

Attention, Upper East Siders: Penn Badgley is serving up the Gossip Girl nostalgia.

The actor—who portrayed Dan Humphrey on the beloved CW show—recently reunited with his on-screen sister Taylor Momsen for an episode of his Podcrushed podcast.

This marked the first time the duo had seen each other since filming the 2012 series finale, during which Taylor’s character Jenny Humphrey returned to New York City and Penn’s character married longtime on-again/off-again girlfriend Serena van der Woodsen, who was portrayed by his real-life ex, Blake Lively.

And although that might seem awkward—filming a fake wedding scene with your ex—Penn doesn’t recall any tension. In fact, off-camera, Blake had actually tied the knot with Ryan Reynolds three months before the Gossip Girl series finale aired.

“From my memory, I’m pretty sure we were exes for nearly half of the run of the entire series,” Penn—who reportedly began dating Blake in 2007—shared on the Sept. 6 episode of Podcrushed. “It lasted for nearly six years and I don’t think we were together longer than two? Something like that.”

“We were always very professional,” he continued. “We had to do all kinds of nutso stuff. Having a fake marriage by the end of it…I don’t even think, in my memory, there was not one bit of strangeness. It wasn’t even a thing.”
