Drew Barrymore caused quite the stir last night. Over the last week or so she’s been seen with Gossip Girl star Chase Crawford a few times, including leaving the Saturday Night Live after-party. There was a little speculation that they were dating, but it was apparently a cover, since it appears that Barrymore is actually with Crawford’s costar Ed Westwick. Either that or she and Chase have a pretty open arrangement, because Drew and Ed were caught seriously making out at the Kings of Leon performance at Webster Hall in New York City last night.
OMFG. Last night at Webster Hall, the main event proved not to be the performance by Kings of Leon but the intense makeout sesh we witnessed between Drew Barrymore and Ed Westwick, a.k.a. Chuck Bass. We’d seen the pictures of Chace Crawford and Barrymore leaving the Saturday Night Live after-party the other night, but we never imagined it was a ruse to cover up her steamy affair with Chuck Bass.
Following last night’s show, Westwick, wearing leather pants and pointed shoes, accompanied Barrymore to the after-party at Bowery Electric where the pair continued their PDA. Barrymore even straddled Bass — um, we mean Westwick — in a move not dissimilar to that time Serena did it with Nate on the bar. To be honest, the whole thing kind of hurt our eyes a bit, not least because at 33, Drew is definitely the Catharine to 21-year-old Westwick’s Marcus. Needless to say, he could barely conceal his smug satisfaction all night — and left wearing the same half-smile Chuck did after he bagged Blair that fateful night in season one.
Drew seems to be a pretty accepting, “live and let live” sort, so I could see her going for whoever she was into, regardless of age. But a Gossip Girl actor, really? Isn’t he loved by tween girls? The only thing I really knew about Ed Westwick before all this was that there were a lot of gay rumors floating around about him and Crawford. The two are roomies, after all. At their ages and income levels – and with those eyebrows – that’s going to raise a few… well eyebrows.
But apparently Drew and Ed are pretty damn into each other. Either that or she’s going out of her way to show the world that she doesn’t care about recent ex-boyfriend Justin Long hooking up with Kirsten Dunst. Either way, she definitely succeeded.
