Leighton Meester Graces The Cover Of Marie Claire [PHOTOS]
Everyone’s favorite “Gossip Girl“, Leighton Meester sat down with Marie Claire magazine for an exclusive interview and stunning photo shoot. She discusses her not so perfect childhood living in Florida, how she got her start in modeling and acting, and what new projects she has in her future.
On her mother and father being in jail while Leighton was a child: “It wasn’t uncomplicated. But I played outside. I went to the beach. There were happy, fun times.
You can take what is handed to you and use it as an excuse to mess up. But I’ve always handled what was given to me by life. I consider myself lucky. I was never lied to. And I was loved.”
On staying focused on her career when her and her family struggled with money: “When you see how you react when you suffer that’s when you know what you are made of.”
All that determination to make it in Hollywood has made Meester one of today’s most sought out actresses. People can’t deny her likeable personality both on and off the camera. Even when she plays snobby judgmental Blair Waldorf in the hit show “Gossip Girl”, she is still everyone’s favorite character.
You can catch her in Adam Sandler’s new movie “That’s My Boy” coming out this summer, where she’ll play a neurotic bride that just gets crazier and crazier over time.
