The Gossip Girl star – who is believed to be dating his co-star Jessica Szohr – doesn’t understand the constant speculation about his sexuality and believes he has done virtually everything possible to quash rumours.
Ed - who was spotted kissing actress Drew Barrymore at a Kings of Leon concert last autumn - said: “I made out with a girl in public. Maybe I need to have sex in public with a woman. "That one's still on the list. Still haven't ticked that one off. Well, I have, but they haven't seen me. Not George Michael public."
The 21-year-old British actor also branded speculation he is having an affair with co-star and flatmate Chace Crawford “f***ing ridiculous”. He added to Rolling Stone magazine: "It's funny because I love this f***ing dude dearly.
"I would die for this f***ing dude. He's my brother. But, by God, we are so into our women it's ridiculous. "But what are you going to do about it? Get p***ed off and stay home and cry about it?"
