Penn Badgley says his 20s were one long strange trip.
The 33-year-old actor confessed this week to taking “plenty” of hallucinogenic drugs in his younger days, while talking to fellow “Gossip Girl” alum Chace Crawford for Variety.
Discussing the LSD trip portrayed by Badgley in the second season of “You,” Crawford asked if he had done any research.
“In my early 20s, I did plenty of research,” Badgley replied.
He also revealed that he hasn’t watched soapy teen drama “Gossip Girl,” which ran from 2007 to 2012, in many years.
“I watched with my wife, with Domino [Kirke], before we got married,” he said. “It must’ve been six months after we met. She had never seen it, and that’s the last time I can remember seeing an episode.
“I remember even then, it has nothing to do with the show, but it was very hard to watch. These snapshots of yourself when you’re 20, 21, 22 years old. Who can enjoy that? Sometimes it’s just uncomfortable.”
Badgley and Kirke, a singer and doula, recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary. In February she announced that she was pregnant after enduring “two miscarriages in a row.”
