"Gossip Girl" actor Chace Crawford lands an interview with Nick Axelrod of WWD Beauty Biz, to whom he dishes about his natural look. "I'm not ignorant to the fact that part of the reason why the show's popular and part of the reason [why] people want to see it is to be like, 'Oh, novelty boy! Hot boy! Pretty boy!'," so he raves. "And that's all fine and good. It is what it is."
It was much more different when he was younger though, admits the 24-year-old actor. He says, "I wasn't, like, Johnny Theater in high school. I was into sports. I was good at math. I was doing photography. I had my hand in a lot of different cliques."
And now that he has become famous, still Chace is eager for more, stating "I'm more looking ahead. I love doing [Gossip Girl], but obviously I've got to switch things up. There are so many things I want to do." When asked about which actors he'd like to model his career on, he mentions the likes of Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Paul Newman. As for his dream director, he tells WWD Beauty Biz that he would love to work with Martin Scorsese.
