The Gossip Girl actor is obsessed with nature and loves nothing more than spending his summers sowing seeds in the ground because the experience is so "humble".
Ed enthused: "I just love planting flowers during the summer. There's something very humble about it, and natural and beautiful. We're a more beautiful species in the summer - everyone comes out looking gorgeous and girls put on nice dresses."
However, despite his genteel hobby, the handsome star likes to think of himself as a rock star as his most rock 'n' roll habits include blasting loud music to annoy his neighbours and shredding his own T-shirts to show off his manly chest.
He told more! magazine: "I'm a showman. I wouldn't say I'm a rock star, though... all right, in my dream world, I am. I annoy my neighbours in my apartment building by blaring music out at 4 o'clock in the morning. I rip my T-shirt. I'm into the whole showing a bit of chest hair thing."
