After his start performing in television movies and feature films, actor Chace Crawford landed his breakthrough role as one of the trend-setting stars of the popular teen series, "Gossip Girl" (The CW...
Actor Chace Crawford has sparked rumours of a romance with Brazilian singer Manu Gavassi after they were recently photographed locking lips in Rio. The former Gossip Girl star headed to the South American country last week (ends15Feb15) to enjoy the annual Carnival festivities and it appears he hit it off with 22-year-old Gavassi, who he was snapped kissing in a passionate embrace.
The brunette singer isn't the only sexy female he has been getting close to while in Rio de Janeiro - he also enjoyed a samba lesson from Brazilian model/actress Bruna Marquezine, according to Eonline.com.
Crawford has been single since splitting from model Rachelle Goulding last summer (14).
Maybe it's because we've been struggling to find one man to love us, let alone two, or maybe it's because it reduces pretty awesome female characters to a girl who can't decide which boy she loves, but we've grown a pretty tired of the love triangle trope saturating so many TV shows and movies. It seems like vampires are only ever happy if they're competing for a girl (and, of course, they simply must be vampires). Are there really no other ways to complicate a love story?
1. Sookie/Eric/Bill (True Blood)
Sookie, waitress (who spends shockingly little time actually waiting tables) and faerie, loves vampire Bill Compton. She is "his," which is some pseudo-romantic vampire way of possessing a woman like an object, and along comes douchey bad-haired vampire Eric. She hates Eric at first, but then he cuts his hair and gets amnesia, forgetting he's actually a jerk, and they fall in love. And then the two vampires compete over her for, like, ever. After this whole love triangle (a square, if you consider her relationship with werewolf Alcide) ordeal fades, she ends the series with a rando who we don't meet. Umm, cool? At least we had some steamy moments of threesome fantasies.
2. Olivia/Jake/Fitz (Scandal)
Is anyone into Olivia and Fitz anymore? We're not really sure there would be a show without this love triangle though, because Pope & Prez need to be lovers torn apart, and, what with the First Lady generally approving of their relationship (and engaging in extramarital affairs of her own), something needs to keep them apart. Enter Jake, secret agent man. We like Olivia Pope best when she's wearing Burberry trenches and "handling" situations like nobody else can. We tolerate her love life (although we do cherish the non-booty calls and her standing up for herself).
3. Jack/Kate/Sawyer (Lost)
We're not sure if we'll ever fully understand what happened on Lost, but we do know that the episodes weren't nearly as entertaining when they focused on this love triangle. Wasn't there enough going on here without this overplayed scenario?
4. Bella/Jacob/Edward (The Twilight Saga)
As much as we tried to bury our head in the sand and avoid this book/film series, the cursed Team Edward/Team Jacob drama found a way to perpetually enter our lives. Its ubiquity alone is enough to grow tired of. As far as we're concerned, if we didn't like the vampire-werewolf-human triangle on True Blood (okay, Sookie isn't human, but you get it), we're certainly not going to enjoy one where the vampire sparkles.
5. Rory/Dean/Jess (Gilmore Girls)
This is the love triangle we understand the most of all of these. No, not just because both Dean and Jess are irresistible and pretty unconditional in their affection for the perfect Rory Gilmore, but because Dean was sort of the first boy she had ever noticed. She started dating him, things were going smoothly, and then Jess came along. Understandably, when a bad boy who loves reading comes along, swooning is inevitable. Dean was a good first boyfriend, a bit too needy for our taste, and Jess made a huge mistake by, you know, leaving town while still dating Rory and not even saying anything, but we understood where she was coming from, at least. That still didn't make it enjoyable to watch Dean peacock and proclaim Stars Hollow as "his town."
6. Jack/Elizabeth/Will (Pirates of the Caribbean)
Walt Disney Pictures
Come on, Elizabeth! You can't just throw away your relationship every time Johnny Depp looks damn cute in a costume. You will never have a healthy love life that way.
7. Meredith/Derek/Addison (Grey's Anatomy)
It's always a grey area when a TV show makes you ship a relationship between a married man and his mistress, and that's exactly what happened here. We liked Derek and Meredith with the complications they already faced - a one night stand that turned into the pair working at the same hospital (and the accusations that she was sleeping her way to the top). When Addison came back into the picture, it just annoyingly kept apart two characters we knew should be together.
8. Serena/Nate/Dan (Gossip Girl)
The relationships on Gossip Girl mostly played like a square dance's exchange of partners, and we never liked Nate and Serena together (even though, goodness gracious, they were a gorgeous-looking couple) because he was her BFF's boyfriend. What happened to girl code, S? (To be fair, Blair then went for Lonely Boy despite his former relationship with Serena). Eventually, this show's only relationship we rooted for was strangely Chuck and Blair.
9. Katniss/Peeta/Gale (The Hunger Games)
Lionsgate via Everett Collection
This one never seemed like much of a love triangle to us. As we read the book, and even in the first movie, we sort of felt like, "Gale who?" It was always Peeta. Katniss and Gale's relationship was strictly platonic, despite Hemsworth's hunkiness. His attractiveness is all he has going for him, and it's squandered by his jealousy. Peeta, on the other hand, is cute, caring, maybe a little needy, but we dig it. The real attraction to the movies/books lies in the revolution though (which is greatly motivated by Katniss' desire to rescue Peeta, further proof of his superiority).
10. Buffy/Angel/Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Seriously, what is it about vampire relationships that leads to love triangles? This is a little ridiculous. Buffy and Angel are perfect beyond words, a modern supernatural Romeo and Juliet plagued not by sparring families, but by an ancient curse, and Spike had vampire impotence and made a Buffy-bot. Really? We liked Buffy and Spike's banter, but the romance between the two always felt a bit wrong to us (and even Spike didn't believe her when she said she loved him).
11. Ross/Rachel/Joey (Friends)
Why. Did. This. Happen. Ross and Rachel, the annoyingly on-again, off-again, "we-were-on-a-break" couple everyone shipped throughout the 90s, were each other's lobsters. Joey, the show's resident Casanova, suddenly falls in love with her, even though she has Ross' baby? Whose decision was that?
Actor Chace Crawford is nursing an injured arm. The former Gossip Girl star was photographed on his way to Los Angeles hotspot Craig's Restaurant on Friday (12Sep14), wearing a large sling supporting his left arm.
Crawford was not wearing a cast, and did not reveal how he ended up in a sling or the extent of his injury.
Actor Miles Teller is reportedly dating model Keleigh Sperry. The Divergent star and Sperry were spotted together at a party at Hakkasan Las Vegas on Saturday (30Aug14), with actresses Nina Dobrev, Jessica Szohr and Jenna Ushkowitz and actor Chace Crawford.
A source tells the New York Post, "Miles couldn't keep his eyes off Keleigh. They were inseparable and looked very in love."
Actor Chace Crawford is single again after splitting from his girlfriend.
The Gossip Girl star has been dating model Rachelle Goulding since early last year (13), but Crawford has now confirmed the romance is over.
During an appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Australian radio station KIIS 1065 on Wednesday (16Jul14), Crawford was asked whether he is still dating "that Canadian model... the hot chick," and he replied, "Ah, no. I'm not. I'm not... It's totally good. It's totally good. You have fun."
When pressed about the breakup, the star blamed the split on moving from New York to Los Angeles, explaining, "I actually moved out of New York, I live in L.A. now," and he is embracing single life as he settles into California, adding, "I am travelling too much right now (for a relationship). I am just trying to move in and I have a couple of independent films (I am working on) right now."
Glee's much anticipated 100th episode saw the return of Heather Morris and Dianna Agron, as well as guest stars Kristin Chenoweth and Gwyneth Paltrow. And Chace Crawford was also there, because why not? It was a fairly solid episode, with a lot of emotions and just the right amount of the ridiculousness we've come to expect. Here are the 100 craziest things that happened in the episode.
1. This episode begins with self-satisfied voiceovers from Mercedes and Rachel, which seems about right.
2. They then fight over "The Rachel Chair," which is apparently a thing.
3. Mercedes makes a reference to segregation because she didn't get the "Rachel Chair," and it seems kind of inappropriate, contextually.
4. Dianna Agron tries to look like she's okay with being back on Glee.
5. Glee, mocking Mr. Schuester's rapping does not make the fact that it happened okay.
6. And you should probably make fun of his dancing and general smugness, too.
7. The super folksy April Rhodes (Chenoweth) is back.
8. April taught the Terrible Tina to smuggle meat up her dress. What?
9. Awesome, Glee. April's island doesn't have any pesky destitute locals in it.
10. She also makes a joke about Unique being a virgin, and it is not even close to funny.
11. Someone finally acknowledges that The Warblers are superior to the New Directions.
12. Glee is so used to autotuning everything that Kristin Chenoweth's voice sounds like a robot's. Guys, she can sing.
13. "Raise Your Glass" involves humping, fake drinking, fake (?) drunkenness, lots of other things that should not fly at McKinley High.
14. April slaps Mr. Schue's butt, and no one seems to have a problem with it.
15. Puck says his nickname at school was The Saw. Is this a thing?
16. Chace Crawford's character is named Biff McIntosh.
17. He is apparently the owner of all McIntosh apples.
18. And he calls his mother "mother."
19. Brittany works at MIT now.
20. She also misses scissoring Santana. Risky, Glee.
21. Santana keeps trying to make "The Unholy Trinity" a thing.
22. Despite lots of sexy poses behind tinted glass, "Toxic" is pretty low energy.
23. Chace A.K.A. Biff calls the performance energetic, so he really wasn't paying attention.
24. Even the worst boyfriend in the world would probably watch his girlfriend perform a sexy three-way dance number in front of him. Come on, Biff.
25. Then again, Quinn's curly bang situation distracts from her lingerie.
26. Santana twerks, and that also seems inappropriate.
27. There are way too many characters on this show right now.
28. The fact that Quinn and Santana recently hooked up is not mentioned even one bit.
29. Fondue for Two, the best part of Glee, is back.
30. Brittany's cats make out.
31. Fondue for Two has become a lot more hard-hitting, and it works.
32. Mercedes and Rachel are having a diva-off.
33. Breadstix still appears to serve nothing but breadsticks.
34. "Mike Chang, Asian dancer."
35. Did anyone else forget about Quinn's Ryan Seacrest tattoo?
36. Sue does not make fun of Kristen Chenoweth's aggressive folksiness, which seems like a real missed opportunity.
37. Why does everyone think diva-offs are a real thing? I'm looking at you, Mr. Schue.
38. And poor Kurt gets pulled into the diva-off.
39. This episode is really into interior monologues.
40. Performing "Defying Gravity" (and Chenoweth's guest appearance) is pretty timely, considering Adele Dazeem.
41. Blaine appears, like, once on screen. Not cool.
42. He does, however, look very cute and proud of Kurt.
43. Kristin says "Defying Gravity" should be on Broadway. Ha. Ha. Broadway humor.
44. Mr. Schue says the glee club are all winners in such a simpering, unfortunate way that they are basically all losers for associating with him.
45. Brittany organizes a human chess game.
46. Because nerds love chess, guys.
47. Kiki, the alternative to Siri that Brittany found in a dumpster, is back.
48. Suddenly, McKinley has a giant chess board.
49. "The one thing this country needs more of is teen marriage."
50. Santana holds a dance intervention to "Valerie" to get Brittany to stop making the huge career mistake of working at MIT (?).
51. It succeeds.
52. Heather Morris is still so good at dancing.
53. She can really work a pony-tail.
54. Everyone seems bent on convincing the newly brilliant Brittany that she needs to cover more songs to be happy.
55. In order to perform an acoustic guitar number, Puck decides everyone needs to move to the auditorium, which seems unnecessary.
56. Quinn has to hold her hand to her heart to show that she is experiencing emotion.
57. Everyone laughs a lot after singing "Keep Holding On" and jauntily walks away from Quinn, who is crying.
58. "I'm in love with Biff" is a sentence that is said seriously.
59. Kristin Chenoweth has a really big role in this episode. Maybe (hopefully) they are phasing out Marley.
60. Mr. Schuester says "no more drama," as though he isn't drawn to high school drama like a moth to a flame.
61. Would Mr. Schue die if the glee club ended? It seems possible. What would he do with all his time? Teach?
62. Kitty's expression shows that she is resigned to her fate as mini-Quinn.
63. Santana says, "Can it, troll!" to Rachel, and it is amazing.
64. It's okay, Rachel, we all forget Ryder's name too.
65. Rachel is in a diva-off with everyone.
66. If Rachel is so sick of high school drama, maybe she shouldn't have moved in with her high school frenemies.
67. Rachel equates her rivarly with Mercedes to that of Beyonce and Barbra? What?
68. Glee finally acknowledges the show's extravagant costumes and sets.
69. Bernie Madoff is part of a plot device. Topical.
70. Will Schuester is really disappointed by the flightlessness of April's super flighty character.
71. People in this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mac and cheese commercial dance better than some of Glee's performers.
72. Why is Quinn's Seacrest tattoo such a big deal? What about the pregnancy? The near death while texting and driving?
73. Chace A.K.A. Biff has no redeeming qualities.
74. Quinn violently pinches the bridge of Chace Crawford's nose.
75. On Mercedes and Rachel, all Jake has to say is that "one's black and one's Jewish," which is a hilarious "joke" on this "progressive" show.
76. Gwyneth Paltrow as Holly Holiday glides into the scene, because Kristin Chenoweth buttered the floor.
77. There's a Facebook page for guests of the glee club, which is hilarious.
78. Holly Holiday impersonates William Henry Harrison.
79. She also expresses how dumb it is that Glee is redoing old songs. Thank you.
80. So she performs Pharrell's "Happy."
81. She duets with Blaine, because they needed to include him somehow.
82. Puck has apparently loved Quinn all along.
83. Apparently, MIT squelches femininity and fun.
84. It's pretty easy to forget about Demi Lovato in this episode.
85. Marching music plays when Puck walks, because he is in the military.
86. Quinn and Puck twirl in slow motion.
87. Santana uses the charming expression "gives two poops."
88. Mike Chang remarks on the passage of time and fading of memories, because he is a character who needs lines.
89. Mr. Schue cries.
90. Everyone cries.
91. Holly Holiday says, "Go the way of the dodo," which is definitely something Gwyneth brought to the table.
92. Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristin Chenoweth are plotting, which is really scary.
93. Stop trying to make "Gleek" happen, Glee marketing department. It isn't going to happen.
94. Sue barely says anything biting in this whole episode.
95. Tina also doesn't say anything terrible, or anything at all really, so that's good.
96. There is basically no Klain at all, which is pretty unforgivable.
97. Looks like they'll be singing "Don't Stop Believing" next episode. Shocker.
98. Lilies are the lesbian of flowers, says Brittany.
99. Kurt is nostalgic and it's the cutest.
100. Mr. Schue says glee club is over. Cue the existential crisis.
"I did four or five scenes... It's funny, I know like 80 per cent of the cast already, (show creator) Ryan Murphy calls up and is like, 'Come on (the show),' and my first question was, 'Do I have to sing?' I'm like, 'I'm not singing, I can't sing.'" Former Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford relished his upcoming guest role on Glee.
Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford is returning to TV after signing on to appear in the 100th episode of hit comedy musical Glee. Series star Matthew Morrison reveals the actor will romance actress Dianna Agron's cheerleader character Quinn Fabray on the upcoming anniversary show, which will air in two parts.
Morrison tells Eonline.com, "I think he's going to be Dianna Agron's new love interest. His name is Biff. He's kind of a... degenerate."
Gwyneth Paltrow is also said to be reprising her role as substitute teacher Holly Holiday for the big episode after appearing on Glee in 2010 and 2011.
The 100th anniversary episodes will air in the U.S. in March (14).
The cast finished shooting their sixth and final season on Saturday (20Oct12) and they gathered together to celebrate the hit TV drama's huge success at a wrap party.
But chaos ensued at the end of the evening as the stars indulged in a food fight with their special send-off chocolate cake.
Photos of the carnage emerged on Twitter.com, including a snap of Crawford with icing smeared on his face and shirt, and another of him licking his fingers while cutting another slice of the cake.
A shot of co-stars Michelle Trachtenberg and Penn Badgely with cream on their cheeks and in their hair also appeared online.
The last episode of the teen show is due to air in December (12).
The actress, who has previously romanced Gossip Girl hunk Chace Crawford and pop singer Joe Jonas, broke up with Broadway star Reeve Carney last year (11) and she has been single ever since.
Now the 25 year old has opened up about her struggle to find a serious boyfriend, blaming her lacklustre love life on her busy career.
She tells Marie Claire magazine, "I'm always here and there - everyone in my industry is - and that's why a lot of relationships are fleeting. I've gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realise is hard on friends and kind of selfish... You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie.
"It's not like you're going to fly out and see them, because it's not serious enough for that."

Nominated for the 2010 Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Actor: Drama
After his start performing in television movies and feature films, actor Chace Crawford landed his breakthrough role as one of the trend-setting stars of the popular teen series, "Gossip Girl" (The CW, 2007- ). As the Golden Boy of the show, Crawford was a popular topic of entertainment magazines and gossip blogs, while also becoming a fan favorite on the popular New York-based show. Prior to his success on "Gossip Girl," the actor made his television debut in the Lifetime movie, "Long Lost Son" (2006), which he followed with an appearance in the supernatural thriller "The Covenant" (2006). From there, it was a quick jump to stardom thanks to "Gossip Girl," which opened doors to bigger projects, including appearing in the teen-centric crime drama, "Twelve" (2010). Though only on the public radar briefly before achieving fame, Crawford managed to become a big star in that short span and opened himself up to a wider array of film and television projects.
Born Dec. 16, 1986; Competed in the 2008 Miss USA pageant as Miss Missouri
On June 4, 2010, Crawford was arrested in Plano, TX for possession of marijuana. He was charged with misdemeanor and released on bail. In April 2011, Crawford cut a deal with prosecutors to have his case dismissed as long as he stayed clean for one year and performed community service. A Texas judge dismissed the case in September 2011 after Crawford's lawyer presented him with evidence that the actor performed 80 hours of community service.
