THE GOLDEN BOYS
WHO THEY ARE: Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) and Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford), ridiculously rich and ridiculously good-looking high-school students on Gossip Girl. HOW THEY MET: They attend St Jude’s, a prep school for the sons of people who have money to burn. MOST BROMANTIC MOMENT: When Nate’s family ended up broke, Chuck sold shares in Victrola— the club he’d established in the hope of attracting a little positive attention from Daddy— to help his bud’s family out of the bind. WHY THEY’RE MEANT FOR EACH OTHER: Nate is unfazed by Chuck’s manipulative, occasionally gross behaviour. And Chuck doesn’t seem to notice Nate does little more than stare vacantly and look confused.
Also, how many other people can possibly understand the burden of being that rich and that pretty? ON-THE-ROCKS MOMENT: Nate was not pleased when he found out Chuck took the virginity of his ex-girlfriend, Blair, in the back of a limo. The two eventually made up, though, and if you can get past that, it’s bromance for real. FAVOURITE ACTIVITY: They both enjoy an occasional encounter with a good-looking cougar— or even a very classy, vitaminwater-sponsored bash in that summer colony of the rich, the Hamptons.
