Penn Badgley Rides Elephants, Drinks Vodka With Kevin Spacey
Lest you think Penn Badgley (Dan) isn’t up for a bit of nighttime partying, the actor reveals that he’s quite the man about town… even when he’s in a foreign country.
"The landscape in Iceland was intimidating and brutal: geysers, waterfalls, billion-year-old moss-covered lava. And Reykjavík's nightlife is just as wild. At Prikid bar, they played great American hip-hop, served shot after shot of a licorice liquor called Topaz, and treated me as if I were the entire cast of Ocean's Eleven [Bankastræti 12],” he told Traveler.
“A couple years ago, I spent a month in Southeast Asia. I went scuba diving off Thailand and saw barracuda baring teeth that shone like metal. I stayed at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai, where the highlight was riding an elephant bareback—mine was named Mae Ma, and her calm personality mirrored mine. But my annual adventure is always skiing in Park City with semi-pro, backflipping friends. We always end up at Devanza's for pizza and beer. Back home in Manhattan, we kicked off shooting for Margin Call with a dinner at Stanton Social—Kevin Spacey and I stayed late drinking vodka sodas [99 Stanton St.]."
Sounds like quite the life. Looks like Penn is handling his break-up with Blake Lively just fine.
