Elizabeth Hurley, who was supposed to play the villainous Veronica Cale in the upcoming Wonder Woman reboot (that was, unfortch, not picked up by NBC), has popped up on the NYC set of Gossip Girl. Liz has been cast as Diana Payne and, as you can see from the photos below, she has her sights firmly planted on Chace Crawford‘s character Nate Archibald. Um, all I can say is … get it, gurl!
On a street corner on New York’s Upper East Side, a cougar moves in for the kill. This is how a scene of Gossip Girl played out this week when Elizabeth Hurley arrived on set to film her role with her much younger co-star Chace Crawford. The 46-year-old was pictured gripping the 25-year-old’s face firmly as she pulled him close and planted a kiss on him. Chace stood passively with his hands in his pockets, but didn’t seem too upset by the aggressive move by the attractive older woman. Elizabeth looked typically sexy in a plunging red dress as she began work as her glamorous character Diana Payne. The model and businesswoman looked in her element as she filmed the saucy scenes, at one point throwing a cheeky smile at photographers over her shoulder … They both clutched scripts and laughed and chatted as they stood together on the New York side walk. Elizabeth still looked stylish in the casual ensemble which included oversized sunglasses, a peach camisole and jeans. It was recently announced that she would be joining the teen cast for several episodes on the forthcoming fifth series of the show.
You know, for as much as Chuck Bass (played by Ed Westwick) is the “badboy playboy” on GG, Nate Archibald gets his fair share of beautiful women. Fans of the show will remember that this isn’t Nate‘s first relationship with an older woman. I guess we’ll have to wait and see who Diana really is on the show … and how far these two will take their … involvement ;)
