Penn Badgley: America’s Next Top Model?

Although Gossip Girl hottie Penn Badgley (Dan) has all of the requirements for being a sexy model, the actor doesn't have any runway experience listed on his resume. Still, per The New York Post, the smoldering star will show off his modeling chops in the 2011 H&M Fashion Against AIDS campaign.

“I think it’s good to keep young people, all people, aware about HIV [...] It’s a serious issue and it affects so many people. It’s not just restricted to any community," Penn insisted. Truth.

Other celebs joining the cause include Akon, Ginnifer Goodwin, Selma Blair, Keri Hilson, Shiloh Fernandez, and The Scissor Sisters. The fashion collection will be up for grabs at the H&M Divided department and online, starting April 26. The best part is 25 percent of sales will go to the charity Designers Against AIDS, in addition to other international HIV/AIDS prevention projects.

Nice! Props to Penn for offering his sexiness to a good cause. Check out more behind-the-scenes pics from the shoot below:
