Ed Westwick has driven Westfield wild at the premiere of new British rom-com Chalet Girl, posing for pictures with screaming fans on the red carpet.

The Gossip Girl hunk stars as a the son of a wealthy businessman who falls for chalet girl turned champion snowboarder Kim, played by Felicity Jones, but Ed confessed he doesn't like snowboarding.

Attending the screening at the west London shopping complex, the actor revealed: "I had the one lesson and I have to say I'm not converted. I'm already good at skiing so why would I want to change? I admire it but I'm a big fan of skiing."

Comedian Bill Bailey plays Kim's father in the film and dances around in just a towel in one scene.

The 47-year-old Black Books star revealed he is hoping to inherit some of Ed's groupies after they have seen the film, which also stars Tamsin Egerton, Bill Nighy, Brooke Shields and German actor Ken Duken, who appeared in Inglourious Basterds.

Bill said: "I'm largely in it for the eye candy element and I'm expecting offers after this - I'll be doing Chippendales. Hairy Chippendales."

Felicity revealed heart-throb Ed put her at ease for their kissing scenes in the film, directed by Phil Traill.

She said: "Ed Westwick is an excellent person to get to know and he made the whole thing very easy and relaxed. And from his years of training on Gossip Girl he really knows how to be on set and he's really incredibly professional."

She added: "He is a very good kisser."
