Producers Worry About Westwick’s Weight Gain

Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick has reportedly come under fire from TV bosses for gaining weight — because they’ve had to buy an entire new wardrobe to accommodate his expanding waistline.

The 21-year-old British actor, who plays the womanizing Chuck Bass on the hit show, has been living large since moving to New York to film the series.

And the show’s stylists are urging producers to intervene, reports the New York Daily News.

An on-set source says, “Ed has been gaining a lot of weight — not just around the waist, but through the whole body. First, the costume department had to buy him new, bigger pants. Then, his shirts and jackets got way too snug. The costumers even requested that producers talk to Ed — they don’t want Chuck to be fat!”
