Actor Ed to ditch tattoo after allegations
RAPE-ACCUSED Ed Westwick is considering getting his tattoo of a naked woman removed.
The British-born Gossip Girl actor, 30, posted a snap of the lewd inking online.
Westwick, right, is reeling after being accused of rape and sexual assault by two women.
It has plunged the BBC’s Christmas TV schedule into crisis as the corporation has axed its flagship Agatha Christie drama after the claims against its star. We can also reveal Westwick bragged women love “a bad boy” and said the tattoo of a topless women on his upper right arm bears the date 1936 in tribute to his glamour model grandmother.
During an interview with Square Mile magazine in May, Westwick said: “I got 1936 tattooed underneath her because my grandmother won a contest called Miss Lovely Legs 1936. So my grandmother’s topless on my arm.” A source said: “Ed loves getting tattoos and in 2009 got inkings including a topless woman. “But now in light of the sex scandal sweeping Hollywood, and especially considering the allegations against Ed himself, he is kicking himself for getting it.
“He knows he is going to face real trouble in his career now, whether innocent or not.
“But he knows he’s going to look really stupid considering the whole sex scandal in the film industry having a tasteless tattoo of a naked woman. He has told friends he wants it removed by laser.” Westwick was due to appear in the BBC’s Christmas special adaption of Agatha Christie’s Ordeal By Innocence set in 1958.
The show has since been removed from the schedules while the claims are being investigated.
Westwick, best known for his role in US series Gossip Girl, “strenuously denies” allegations he raped two actresses.
Kristina Cohen accused Westwick of forcing himself upon her at his home three years ago, in a claim being investigated by Los Angeles Police.
And on Thursday, Aurélie Wynn, who has since quit acting, alleged that Westwick had raped her at a house he was renting in LA back in July 2014.
