As hard as it is to believe, Chace Crawford, who plays hot but currently boring Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl, says he and his friends find it hilarious that he is now labeled a hunk, a sex symbol, thanks to the phenomenal CW teen hit.
"My friends give me a hard time and rib me about it," Crawford says, adding that his mates rib him over the status. "But I'd do the same thing to them."
Crawford, 23, says he also enjoys living in New York with good friend and Gossip Girl costar Ed Westwick, who plays Chuck Bass on the series. Apparently, what happens on the show is not all acting, as the two are similarly tight in and outside the Upper East Side.
"Me and Ed share a flat and split the rent," Crawford says. "We have a blast - we're like brothers. My mom taught me to scrub the bathroom floor when I was little, so I'm very clean."
