10 Co-Star Couples Who Started Hooking Up Before Their Characters Did
Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick
The Gossip Girl pair have both seen their fair share of hook-ups on the show on-screen and off-screen. Jessica Szohr, who played Vanessa Abrams, and Ed Westwick, who starred as the love-to-hate-him Chuck Bass, got together in 2008 right before we’d see their characters hook up during the second season of the show. Both actors had been in relationships and realized that maybe they were meant to be instead. But, like any CW plot, the real-life pair ended things two years later after accusations of flirting with other people. Ed hasn’t had it easy since then with accusations of sexual assault to deal with, but his ex-girlfriend had his back. Looks like they came out of the Upper East Side with a friendship intact, something very few on Gossip Girl could do.
