Penn Badgley confirmed that he’s dating his Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively, the New York Daily News reports.

Now that their super-hyped TV show has wrapped for the season, Badgely finally opened up about his on-set romance with co-star Lively, 20.

Rumours of the two being more than just friends heated up after they were spotted smooching on a recent vacation to Mexico’s Mayan Riviera.

“Obviously, there’s chemistry there,” Badgely, 21, told E!’s Daily 10. Despite that, he quickly added he was “not a fan” of on-set romances and thought they could “cause a lot of drama.”

The actor also said shooting the show in New York City is different from Los Angeles, calling Gotham City a bit “tame” in comparison.
