Chace Crawford, who plays Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl, has reportedly grown tired of living and working with Ed Westwick, who portrays Chuck Bass on The CW series. According to the New York Post, Crawford is moving out of the New York apartment he shares his Gossip Girl co-star and he’s on the lookout for his own bachelor pad.
Crawford and Westwick have been real-life roommates since moving to the Big Apple for Gossip Girl, and have been living under one roof in Manhattan’s Chelsea district since the series began airing in 2007.
Now, Crawford is looking for his own space.
“Chace wants to move out to a bachelor pad. He wants privacy and has told his agent to spare no expense in finding the perfect loft,” a source told the New York Post, adding that Crawford wants to live “downtown, in a secure building with a doorman.”
Reps for Westwick and Crawford have yet to comment on the news.
At present, Crawford is busy filming the movie Twelve, a drama about a high school dropout-turned-drug dealer whose lucrative life takes a dramatic turn in the wake of his cousin’s murder on an East Harlem playground while his best friend is arrested for the crime. The Gossip Girl actor will star alongside Kiefer Sutherland, Emma Roberts and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
Production for Twelve already kicked off on April 20 in New York under the direction of Joel Schumacher.
Westwick can currently be seen in S. Darko, a mystery thriller set seven years after the first Donnie Darko film, when little sister Samantha Darko and her best friend Corey are now 18 and on a road trip to Los Angeles when they are plagued by bizarre visions.
