In case you were wondering...

I happened to mention to some friends my excitement that Serena and Dan from Gossip Girl were dating in real life. (Although I am still bummed that the characters broke up in the season finale. *sigh* )

And someone thought that was crazy because he thought Blake Lively (Serena) was much older than Penn Badgley (Dan). Personally, I think they all look pretty young BUT I decided to research it anyway. So here it is - more useless information!

  • Serena - Blake Lively, 20, DOB: 25 August 1987 (SEE!!!)
  • Dan - Penn Badgley, 21, DOB: 1 November 1986
  • Blair - Leighton Meester, 22, DOB: 9 April 1986
  • Nate - Chace Crawford, 22, DOB: 18 July 1985
  • Chuck - Ed Westwick, 20, DOB: 27 June 1987
  • Jenny - Taylor Momsen, 14, DOB: 26 July 1993
Holy crap! Jenny is only 14? That makes the scene from the pilot when she was being mauled by Chuck even creepier.

Anyway, more comments from the finale:

Fashion-wise, I loved Serena's dress for the wedding, she definitely looked like a model. Blair's look was a little too flowery for me, but I think it worked for her. I *hated* Vanessa's number - Jenny could have done a much better job with that.

Michelle Trachtenberg did a great job with her Georgina role. I keep seeing commercials for her new ABC Family movie where she plays a race car driver and I just think, "oooh... evil race car driver!" I wonder if her character will be back on Gossip Girl.

I'm glad they wrapped up the Lily / Rufus storyline. Rufus is sooooo lame. But I like Lily - she's the only adult character I do like on the show. But watching Rufus serenade her during that 90's concert thing was painful.

What about the ending? Are there new couplings being planned? Nate and Serena, Dan and Vanessa, etc. I think Chuck and Blair should get back together - it's cute! In a weird way...

I heard they might bring back the show this summer - hope so! Until then...

xoxo gossip girl. lolz. Jenny is the only one who looks old enough to be in high school, it's fitting that she's 14. I think Nate and Serena look the oldest and most out of place, but they're all too old to be in HS.

C'mon - early 20's isn't that bad! What about when they used to cast peeps in their 30s (gasp! soooo OLD!!!) in Grease and 90210 and stuff? And I can't believe you think Jenny looks the oldest! Before she turned into Queen Bee beeyotch, she totally looked like a baby!

No, Jenny looks the youngest. Serena looks the oldest.

Oh, gotcha!

Maybe it's like the weight thing where they say the camera adds 10 pounds. Maybe it also ages you 4-5 years???
