'Gossip Girl' actor Ed Westwick has revealed he can live a normal life without fans approaching him
Ed Westwick doesn't get recognised by his fans.
The 'Gossip Girl' star - who plays lothario Chuck Bass in the popular US show - isn't approached by people in the street because they have no idea who he is.
He said: "Can I go out and buy a pint of milk? Yes, I can. After the first season, I could come back here and no one knew who I was. But now it's changing. It comes with the territory.
"When I'm doing press and in a hotel there are paparazzi around. But when I'm in my day-to-day life people don't know who I am and I'm left to my own devices."
But the 21-year-old British actor is adamant he will never shy away from the limelight like some of Hollywood's biggest stars.
He explained: "I'm always going to go out and do what I want to do. It doesn't pay to close yourself off. You see situations with certain people where it has literally become a frenzy. You look at people like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - people start to forget they are professional actors."
