penn badgley easy a premiere 'Easy A': Penn Badgley is better at being a teenager now that he's 23Penn Badgley may be playing a single dad and college student on “Gossip Girl” now, thanks to Georgina, but in his new movie “Easy A” he’s back to high school again. The actor says that now that he’s almost 24 years old, he’s getting better at being younger.

“I am becoming quite the expert on teen life in the digital age. The
irony is that I am truly getting a handle on being a teenager many years
after the fact,” he tells NY Magazine. Wouldn’t we all be a little better at it the second time around?

]]> Don’t worry, he doesn’t always take himself so seriously. “Easy A” takes a few potshots at “Gossip Girl” — and makes fun of “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” the series that launched Badgley’s girlfriend, Blake Lively’s career. “We don’t take ourselves so seriously that we can’t laugh at a good joke,” he laughs. “I’m pretty sure neither of us will lose any sleep.” Follow Zap2it and @cadlymack  on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.
