Gossip Girl actor Sebastian Stan says it’s great working on the same TV show as his girlfriend, Leighton Meester. Unfortunately, their characters aren’t together, which means they each spend a lot of time at working kissing other people — Meester most notably with Ed Westwick.

But Stan takes it all in stride, he tells People magazine. “It’s work and everyone shares the same mentality when it comes to that. But we all laugh about it. The good part is I get to go home with her.”
