When we first saw the photos of Gossip Girl stars Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick lounging on the grass between takesâas louche and laissez-faire as two successful young men in the primes of their lives can beâsomething about the photos struck as familiar. But we weren't quite sure what it was until today, when a helpful tipster pointed us in the right direction. It's straight out of Brideshead: Revisited!
Specifically a scene from the Jeremy Irons miniseries based on the Evelyn Waugh novel about class and religion and forbidden desire. Chace is the timid but fascinated Charles Ryder, Ed is the aristocratic seen-it-all-except-it Sebastian Flyte. Hopefully no Julia or Lady Marchmain will come between them this time.
