For these stars, their roles on Gossip Girl have undoubtedly been one of the most important of their career... Through their net worth, we can see how well they've done after the show.
Gossip Girl follows the lives of privileged teenagers on the upper east side. The show received numerous award nominations and won 18 Teen Choice Awards.
This teenage drama launched Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford into stardom, and they have had a very successful career afterwards.
So let's see how much is the net worth of these talented leading cast:
5. Ed Westwick: $5million
Gossip Girl was Ed Westick first big acting project and he arguably hasn’t done anything better since. He’s had leading roles in Chalet Girl, Romeo and Juliet and White Gold.
But from the looks of his Instagram he lives in a boujee flat in London and goes on stunning holidays, so things can’t be going too badly for him.
4. Chace Crawford: $6million
Easily the best option out of all the Gossip Girl boys it’s nice to know Chace Crawford has done very well for himself. Chace had only been in one film before starring in Gossip Girl as Nate. He’s been consistently acting since Gossip Girl ended with appearances in Glee, What To Expect When You’re Expecting and a main role in the TV series Blood & Oil.
3. Leighton Meester: $8million
Sadly Leighton hasn’t quite reached Blair levels of wealth but her net worth for a Gossip Girl cast member is still impressive. She’s continued to act after Gossip Girl ended and her most recent house with husband Adam Brody cost an eye-watering $6.5million.
2. Penn Badgley: $8million
For some he’ll always be Joe from You, whereas for Gossip Girl fans he’ll never be anyone but Lonely Boy. However you think of him, the two series have made Penn Badgley a very rich man. Penn had also starred in a number of films before appearing in Gossip Girl and consistently acted between Gossip Girl and You.
1. Blake Lively: $16 million
The Gossip Girl cast member with the biggest net worth is of course Blake Lively with a whopping $16million. She had starred in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants before becoming Serena Van Der Woodsen.
Blake was reportedly earning $60k per episode of Gossip Girl and since the series ended she’s continued to act and earnt a lot of dollar. Blake has starred in the Age of Adaline, The Shallows, Cafe Society and A Simple Favour, among others.
Acting isn’t her only source of income, Blake was named the new face of L’Oréal Paris in 2013, which was reportedly a multi-million dollar deal.
