‘Gossip’ surrounds another pair of kissing costars, leaving some to wonder ‘Are They or Aren’t They?’
Settle announced his separation from his wife in February, and Rutherford has been embroiled in a messy divorce for some time.
Onscreen the pair are married, with Settle as Dan Humphrey’s former rock star father Rufus and Rutherford as his beautiful socialite wife Lily van der Woodsen, Serena’s mom.
The duo were frequently photographed during New York’s fashion week, attending many of the same fashion shows and after parties, leading a tabloid to report that they were “all over each other at a recent party. They are both single and going for it.”
Settle’s rep has dismissed allegations of an off-set romance between the onscreen lovers claiming, “Those reports were not true at all.”
But when Rutherford was asked to clarify the rumors, she only added more fuel to the fire.
“He’s going through his own thing and I’m going through my own thing,” Rutherford cryptically told reporters on the red carpet at the premiere of the Discovery Channel’s new film ‘Life.’
‘Gossip Girl’ has spawned three real-life romances between costars Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr, and Leighton Meester and Sebastian Stan.
