They may star on a teen drama, but Gossip Girls stars Leighton Meester and Blake Lively get decidedly grown-up for the latest cover of Rolling Stone. The girls are shown licking the same melting ice cream cone and giving the camera a pair of seductive, come-hither stares.
In the article, male co-stars Penn Badgley and Ed Westwick joke about the rumors that they’re romantically involved.
“If I’m drunk, I can go knock on Penn’s door and he’ll let me in,” Westwick says in the article. Badgley replies: “Actually, I’ll just spoon him in the gutter.” Later, Westwick stresses that he and Badgley “are so into our f***ing women, it’s ridiculous.” (Badgley dates his on-screen love Lively and Westwick is with co-star Jessica Szohr.)
The cast of the CW hit all took part in a risqué, slumber-party themed shoot. The co-stars jumped in to bed together (half-clothed) during the shoot and even posed in a post-pillow-fight pile of feathers.
In a behind-the-scenes video from the photo session, Taylor Momsen and Badgley laugh about some of the many props brought along. “I’m worried about what’s going to happen with the hot dogs,” Badgley jokes.
But he didn’t need to worry too much. The most scandalous shots were reserved for Meester and Lively, who are pictured biting the opposite ends of a licorice stick in one photo. In another, Meester even sucks on Lively’s thumb.
“Honestly, in every interview someone asks me, ‘Are you really friends with Blake?'” Meester says in the magazine. “We’re very close.” These pictures show how the ladies really, really like each other.
