Westwick Starstruck Over Bathroom Run-in With Beckham

29 December 2008 12:13 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick was left red-faced after meeting David Beckham in a bathroom - because he was too starstruck to speak to the soccer ace.

The British actor, 21, grew up watching Beckham play for U.K. soccer giant Manchester United, and idolised the star throughout his teens.

But when he finally got the chance to meet his hero, Westwick ran the other way.

He tells U.K. magazine Reveal, "I was at this ball in New York that was so grand David Bowie was sitting at the next table and shook hands with George Clooney.

"Then I went to the toilet and there was David Beckham. I couldn't say anything, I just ran out. A friend tried to persuade me to say, 'Hello,' but I couldn't do it. It was ridiculous.

"But I had a Beckham shirt when I was a kid and he was the one I watched growing up."

And despite his best efforts, Westwick admits he still can't bring himself to approach the sports star.

He adds, "There have been a couple of times now that I've been in the same room as him, but I just can't go up to him. I can't do it." »

Drew Barrymore Is Just That Into Her Blond Hair

15 December 2008 2:30 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Drew Barrymore showed off a dramatic bleach blond hairdo around La earlier this weekend. She was almost unrecognizable thanks to the hair - not to mention those stiletto heels. We've been seeing a lot less of Drew these days since she broke up with Justin Long in July after their lengthy Pda fest. While she moved on and was quickly spotted playfully kissing Ed Westwick in NYC, rumor has it there's another new man in her life. Apparently she's been spotted getting cozy with Jason Segel in La. Drew may be one of the many stars of He's Just Not That Into You, but that doesn't sound like a problem she has in her real life. Fame »
