How much are the stars of Gossip Girl worth? TV Guide has released their list of top earners on TV, and only two actors under 30 made the list: Chace Crawford, 24, and Blake Lively, 21. The two stars, who play Nate Archibald and Serena van der Woodsen on the teen soap, Gossip Girl, each made $50,000 an episode this year. That adds up to $1.2 million each year, for each of them! After working just one episode, they could each buy a new 2009 Jaguar XF, and still have a little change left over for lunch!.
