Forever Strong Movie Premiere

Forever Strong Movie Premiere

Last night, I attended the premiere for Forever Strong, the archetypal coming-of-age tale wrapped up in the hard-hitting sport of high-school rugby, that opens nationwide next Friday. I got the chance to sidle up next to two of Hollywood's hottest up-and-comers and even snapped a few shots.

Penn Badgley-best known for his role as Dan on Gossip Girl-plays Lars, the arrogant and manipulative sidekick to the lead rugby star, Rick Penning (played by a very chiseled Sean Faris). Escaping his good guy image, Badgley shows some cinematic versatility in this film. On his role, this is what he had to say: "I got to play a prick. I let myself be as cocky as possible, it's very fun and for me it's very easy to slip into that role. A lot of people might be shocked because I play such a good guy on Gossip Girl."

Blake Lively, hit up the after party too at the penthouse suite of the SoHo Grand Hotel in Tribeca, to support her fellow co-star and BF, but she largely hung back while her man had his moment in the spotlight.
