Hilary Duff was caught up in an intense smooch with Penn Badgley in Gramercy Park, Manhattan on Wednesday.
But it turns out her Ottawa Senators hockey player beau Mike Comrie doesn't have any reason to be jealous.
It seems the actress was totally immersed in her role as Olivia Burke, a famous film star in search of a normal college experience, on the set of Gossip Girl this week.
"I’ve known (Penn) for a few years," reveals Hilary. "We lived in the same neighborhood in LA growing up. And they’re wonderful!" adding: "Blake (Lively, his real-life girlfriend) has been so sweet to me."
