At the height of his career, Penn Badgley had money, fame and the adoration of millions of women who were consumed by the very sight of him. The Baltimore-born actor was catapulted to stardom when he joined the cast of "Gossip Girl" (The CW, 2007-12), the glossy, teen melodrama that followed a group of beautiful and privileged snobs who attend a private school on Manhattan's Upper East Side. As "good guy" Dan Humphrey, he romanced the preppy blonde Serena van der Woodsen portrayed by Blake Lively, who - to the enjoyment of fans and tabloid editors alike - dated Badgley in real life. The sparks between the couple only added more sizzle to the already seductive show, making Badgley a press magnet and one of the more recognized actors of his generation. But the fun ultimately did not last, as Badgley and Lively ended their relationship in September 2010, much to the dismay of fans. Meanwhile, the actor continued his prominent rise with feature roles in "The Stepfather" (2009), "Easy A" (2010) and the financial thriller "Margin Call" (2011), while continuing to inhabit the television role that had made him a star in the first place.
