2011 Was The Year Gossip Girl Took Over The Big Screen!

When the stars of Gossip Girl weren’t spreading secrets and sparking scandal, they were on the set of the silver screen sensations below..

Don’t Miss All-New Episodes of Gossip Girl When They Return January 16th @ 9PM ET Exclusively On MuchMusic!


Blake Lively
Looking gorgeous as a brunette in the film, Blake starred opposite Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern (and, now the duo are dating). The superhero flick preceded Hick, where Blake was back to blonde in the coming of age comedy/drama with Chloë Grace Moretz.

Chace Crawford
Chace locked lips with the littlest Olsen sis, Elizabeth in Peace, Love and Misunderstanding. The comedic drama is charming, just like it’s cast which also includes Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener and Jeffrey Dean Morgan!

Leighton Meester
Leighton’s Blair Waldorf would never share a room with someone and in The Roommate, we see why! College roomies can be cray-cray.
Moving on, Monte Carlo wasn’t widely released, but had mega-watt celebs like Selena Gomez, Glee’s Cory Monteith, and former Gossip Girl castmate, Katie Cassidy. Finally, The Oranges features no fruit, but does fixate on an affair. With who? Unlike, Gossip Girl, are lips are selaed! The cast includes Allison Janney, Adam Brody, Catherine Keener (again!) and House’s Hugh Laurie.

Penn Badgley
Previews for Penn’s only film of 2011 were practically non-existant. And, Margin Call, was no low-bug production either; the all star cast includes Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore, Stanley Tucci, and Simon Baker. The film about a financial crisis sounds promising (and, all too familiar)!

Ed Westwick
Westwick’s alter ego Chuck Bass starred in Chalet Girl; a romantic comedy. The rom-com doesn’t look like the Brit’s cup of tea, but playing a wealthy character was right up his alley. Next up, Westwick sported a small part in J. Edgar as Agent Smith, (sounds mysterious)!

Jessica Szohr
Szohr said bye-bye to Gossip Girl at the end of season 4, freeing up her sched for such films as Love, Wedding, Marriage with co-stars Twilight’s Kellan Lutz and Mandy Moore. Alongside comedy greats, Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy, Jessica climbs to new heights in Tower Heist. Last, but not least, Szohr teams up with the original New York gal, Sarah Jessica Parker in I Don’t Know How She Does It.

Matthew Settle
Mama van der Woodsen was MIA on the movie front, but Papa Humphrey appeared as a professor in So Undercover. Rufus shared the screen with none other than Hannah Montanna’s very own Miley Cyrus.

Kristen Bell
Where would Gossip Girl stand without its naughty narrator? When not lending her powerful pipes and villainous voice to narrating the hit show, she was busying herself on the set of Scream 4 and becoming the voice of another character, this time a cartoon, on the series Robot Chicken.
