Tube: Aldgate East IN GOSSIP GIRL, everyone from under- age schoolgirls to middle-aged cougars want to play tonsil tennis with Chace Crawfords Nate Archibald. Hes ber-handsome, with every facial feature in its exact right place. Itd be easy to hate him if the 24-year- old Texan wasnt such a nice guy. The former Abercrombie & Fitch model plays down the female attention that comes with being the best looker on Gossip Girls Upper East Side block. Sure it can get crazy, he says, look- ing a tad embarrassed. The older girls are cool, although the younger ones can be a bit wild. They surround you and yell Will you marry me? and try to rip off your clothes. Poor Chace. But then hes used to being singled out -- at high school he was voted best-dressed boy. Where did you hear that? he laughs. But yeah, its true. Ive always liked to look sharp and if there were parties Id make an effort and wear a suit. Today hes in a preppy trousers and sweater combo, which he got for free. Its a nice perk, being given cool clothes so I spend my money on gadgets instead. I love computers, laptops, iPods and iPhones. When hes not swelling Apples coffers, hes playing golf at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan where Gossip Girl is filmed or practising his hoofing for the Footloose remake -- a role he won when Zac Efron dropped out, even though he admits: Im not much of a dancer. Theres intense internet speculation about who Crawford is dating (hes been linked to Leona Lewis after he appeared in one of her videos) but hes tight-lipped about that. Still, if youre thinking about wooing him he likes girls who are spontaneous and witty. Im also a sucker for anyone who loves animals, adds the owner of a Rottweiler named Molly. Unlike Nate, hes not torn between young girls and older women. Kate Beckinsale is his celebrity crush. Shes older than me but I wouldnt mind, he smiles. Shes classy and gorgeous. Just like Chace himself, damn him.
