Ed Westwick sends sexy texts "all the time".

The 'Gossip Girl' star - who is believed to have rekindled his romance with co-star Jessica Szohr - admitted he is a fan of sending raunchy messages, as they are easier than making telephone calls.

Oh yeah, I send saucy texts all the time. They're very saucy you know. I use that classic line, 'what are you wearing?' people are braver when it comes to texts because they can hide behind them.

When asked about the texts he said: "Oh yeah, I send saucy texts all the time. They're very saucy you know. I use that classic line, 'what are you wearing?' people are braver when it comes to texts because they can hide behind them."

British-born Ed, who is now based in New York, also said he's not a fan of using cheesy chat up lines on girls himself, but that girls approach him with some very strange lines.

He added: "I'm not a 'Get your coat, you're pulled' kind of guy. Although I'm sure I did use that line when I was 13 at the under 18s disco.

"Some girls say the weirdest things like, 'I've been to London', then they try to have a conversation with me all about London. I'm like, 'Great!'

"A lot of people still don't realise I'm English , which is funny. The amount of times I've said, 'Yes, I'm English."
