Ed Westwick is important

No one really knows who Ed Westwick from Gossip Girl is except for him and his big ego. At Los Feliz, some guy was taking pictures at his own table when Westwick threw a hissy fit because he thought the camera was pointed at him. Ed’s reps have denied these claims saying he dined there without any trouble.

“Ed came over and was like, ‘Stop taking my picture!'” says the snapper, who insists he initially didn’t even know who “Chuck Bass” was and was simply trying to capture memories of his own evening.

“He started shouting obscenities at me and getting in my face. He was all bitter and s—. I thought it was a joke.”

But it most certainly wasn’t: The amateur cameraman soon realized just how angry Westwick was (“He walked off in a cloud of disgust,” he says), but decided he wasn’t going to take the insult sitting down.

“I went over to him and asked him who he thought he was, and he dissolved into a fit of rage,” says the man, who continued taking pictures of his party.

Soon after, he says he was approached by the manager of the restaurant, who told him he had to leave at Ed’s request.

“Ed was snickering in the corner, because the people he was with had told the staff that I was paparazzi,” says the man. “So I paid my bill, and I left.”

I like to do this when I eat out too. It’s a good way to get a comped meal. Although it does get a little weird when they ask “Who do you think you are?” and I answer with, “Do you know who I am?” and we just keep going back and forth until one us gets fed up and leaves.
