Break out the bubbly and put on your party headband, because today, June 27th, is Ed Westwick's (Chuck) birthday! Um, why has no one turned this into a national holiday yet? Seriously, people.
In celebration of Ed's moment in the spotlight, we've rounded up five things we love about him. If nothing else, this is an excuse to stuff yourself with cake and walk around with a cane.
1. His Sexy Accent
Have you heard Ed talk in real life? We can barely understand a word he's saying, that's how British he is. All we know is that every time he gives an interview, we have a sudden craving for tea and crumpets.
2. His Cocky Smile
Ed spends most of his time stony faced and dapper, but sometimes he breaks out his sly sideways smile and we are on the floor in a fit of swoons. And yes, we have photoshopped ourselves into photos with Ed smiling at us. It's a totally normal thing to do.
3. He's Single And Ready To Mingle
For some mysterious reason, Ed has yet to find himself a girlfriend. But you know what that means, ladies! He's fair game. But on your cutest little black dress and wander the streets of Hollywood –– you're sure to find him eventually.
4. He's A Male Model
Not only is Ed a great actor, he's also a beautiful god amongst men. Ed has lent his handsome mug to several fashion campaigns, and he's even walked the runway! Basically, he's the Tyra Banks of Gossip Girl, so duh we love him.
5. He's In A Band
Before he ruled the streets of New York with his snarky 'tude and fancy bow ties, Ed was the frontman of The Filthy Youth. That's right, he was in an indie band. Be still our beating hearts!
Happy birthday from your pals at Wetpaint, Ed! Hope you have a good one.
