Ed Westwick gossip girl rome

Ed Westwick dined with fashion designer Phillip Plein in Rome last night, and the Gossip Girl star showed off his hairy chest and some rather interesting facial hair when we snapped his picture.

The 24-year-old British actor recently wrapped shooting on the upcoming reboot of Romeo & Juliet, in which he plays Juliet's nasty cousin Tybalt. Hailee Steinfield will play Juliet and unknown hottie Douglas Booth will play Romeo, and while other talented cast members include Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgard, the movie was penned by the Julian Fellowes, who wrote Downton Abbey (great) and The Tourist (not so great).

We're gonna have to see a teaser before we're sold on this one...
