Blake Lively's Ex Penn Badgley Weighs In

Here's a phrase we're not use to hearing "not all ex-boyfriends are bad" and Penn Badgley  ("Gossip Girl") can prove it.

Blake Lively's ex-boyfriend Badgley actually weighs in well for newlywed couple Lively and her new hubby Ryan Reynolds.

From E! News:

"I'm happy," he told me (E! News) earlier today while promoting his new indie flick, "Greetings From Tim Buckley," at the Toronto International Film Festival. "That's great."

and From US Magazine:

"I'm happy for her," Badgley, 25, "Genuinely happy."

Happy? You don't see this reaction from ex's too often, especially on "Gossip Girl." Usually, ex's provoke that silly feeling called revenge, but don't worry "Gossip Girl" lovers,  we can now breathe knowing how genial Badgley really is.

"Gossip Girl" co-stars were together for three years before they called it quits. However, Badgley has a happy tale too, he is currently dating actress Zoe Kravitz, 23.

Hands down, I believe Badgley's spirited response can claim the classy ex award. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the new season of "Gossip Girl" and order "Dan Humphrey on a silver plate with a side of his happiness please!"

Catch "Gossip Girl's" premiere on Monday, Oct. 8.

What do you think about Badgley's response to Lively and her new hubby?
