Ed Westwick of Gossip Girl is confirmed to be in Manila and will stay here till Friday. It’s definitely a YAY! to all the girls waiting to see him here. But it’s not clear if he will meet the press or do other public engagements as his purpose for being in town appears to be doing a shoot for local clothing brand Penshoppe. The Manila Peninsula will be his homebase while in town.
A picture of Ed Westwick (a.k.a. Chuck Bass) amid a huge BDO signage was taken by a local fan and posted in her Tumblr account. Thereupon, she described him as a really nice guy and definitely a Hollywood star.
Famous entertainment writer Ricky Lo wrote in his Philippine Star column Funfare that Westwick “has been tapped as lead endorser for Penshoppe’s 25th-anniversary pre-Holiday 2011 to Summer 2012 Collection. He arrived late last night and will leave Friday after the shoot with Australian fashion photographer Darren Tieste in cooperation with PR Asia Worldwide, the agency owned and managed by Joyce Ramirez.”

Aside from Penshoppe, the Gossip Girl male star is also an endorser of international sports label K-Swiss.
Here’s an Ed Westwick quotable quote: “Girlfriends are too much of a headache.” After going out for a long time with Jessica Szohr (who played Vanessa Abrams in Gossip Girl), they broke up in May 2010, only to be reunited again with the resumption of the series.
