As frigid temperatures hit New York, Zoe Kravitz and Penn Badgley cuddled up at the Cinema Society & Artistry after party for Warm Bodies at the Penthouse at the Hotel on Rivington.

The cast was shooting at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art a few days after the show's premiere, Badgley, 25, told PEOPLE at the CW show's 100th episode party. He wasn't shooting, but his costars were texting him to come down, as the set was being besieged by fans.

"I tried to come down and wasn't able to get to the Met because probably, like, 40 or 50 Catholic schoolgirls all swarmed me and pinned me up against a chain-link fence," Badgley says.

Demonstrators, who have been camped out in a park near Wall Street since mid-September, are protesting economic inequalities, corporate greed and the influence of corporate money on politics and government.
