Ed Westwick: I love showing my chest

Ed Westwick is a "showman" who likes to get his chest hair out.

The Gossip Girl actor is also a musician and performs with a band called The Filthy Youth. He is the group's frontman and feels alive when he takes to the stage, often resulting in some rock and roll antics.

"I rip my T-shirt. I'm into the whole showing-a-bit-of-chest-hair thing," he laughed to more! magazine.

"I'm a showman, I wouldn't say I'm a rock star, though… all right, in my dream world, I am. I annoy my neighbours in my apartment building by blaring music out at 4 o'clock in the morning."

Ed is British and says his fans love his accent. It also comes in useful when he is trying to flirt with girls, although he insists he's nothing like his Gossip Girl character Chuck Bass who is a notorious ladies' man.

"Whenever I like someone, I end up pretty much completely smitten. I pride myself on being one of the last romantics," he said. "My weakness is my neck - when girls get too close to my neck, crazy things start to happen."

The 25-year-old star finds it easier to get in the mood for love when the weather is warm. He prefers girls' clothing in the summer too as they tend to wear more dresses.

"I just love planting flowers during the summer," he added. "There's something very humble about it and natural and beautiful."
