    Speaking on the Podcrushed podcast, Penn Badgley recalled a funny prank Blake Lively played on him to make him believe he was Steven Tyler’s son. He recalled that there was a press item where someone believed he was Tyler’s son, and him and his team were trying to kill it. Shortly after, however, his publicist reached back and said, surprisingly, Steven Tyler himself believes it and was adamant about his paternity.

    “At this point, I of course don’t think it’s true, but I’m just like, ‘How could Steven Tyler believe this? Like, there’s no way. You have to be kidding. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith thinks that I’m his [child]?’” Badgley said.

    The actor then reached out to his mom, at none other than Blake Lively’s advice, while he grappled with this new knowledge of himself. “I was like, ‘Are you f–king kidding me? I am Steven Tyler’s son.’” Badgley recalled, adding, “You know, I’ve always wanted to play music. I didn’t want to exploit the man, I definitely didn’t want to do that.”

    Later on, as he spoke to his mother, things escalated and his rationale kicked and he said, Blake “probably at that point couldn’t keep a straight face” as the room erupted in applause at the prank pulled off by Lively successfully.
