Hiatus Travel: Blake and Penn Go to the Movies
Did we attend the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York solely to catch a glimpse of Blake Lively and Penn Badgley? Well, we were hopeful! Their on-screen romance as Serena and Dan may be over, but Lively and Badgley are rumored to be more in love than ever when they're out of character. Lacking a "Gossip Girl" shooting schedule, we figured any boyfriend worth his salt would catch his girlfriend starring as the sporty one out of four best friends.
We were not disappointed! As Lively came up the aisle just before the movie started, Badgley stood in the middle of the orchestra section and watched her approach. He gallantly crawled over a whole row of seats clutching his popcorn to give her a kiss. The cheap seats squealed. And far be it from us to be homewreckers, but may we just say: The cheekbones are real, and they are spectacular!
We didn't see much of the red-carpet trawling, but Lively's costars Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford, Matthew Settle and Ed Westwick all showed up for the flick, whose prequel was made when "Gossip Girl" was still a book series and which was shot the July before the series premiere. Badgley was missing from the red-carpet photos, though, which suggests he snuck in to save Lively a good seat instead.
"Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" opens August 6, and if you liked the first one, you'll like this one.
