Leighton Meester on Blair, music, and on-screen kisses
HollywoodNews.com: Leighton Meester doesn’t hesitate when asked who the best kisser on “Gossip Girl” is: “Me, of course.” Blair Waldorf would be proud.
In the September issue of Cosmo UK, Meester talks enthusiastically about her role on the popular CW show, saying, “I am living my dream and having the time of my life! I’m lucky because I get to do that all day long and play a character who has a lot of noble qualities as well. I am really lucky she is such a well-written character.”
Don’t assume Leighton and Blair have much more in common, though–according to the actress, their upbringings couldn’t have been more different. “When I was a teenager I was in a public high school. I certainly was not popular by any means, and I didn’t have a car or a lot of money, so it was very different.”
For her part, Meester (the voice behind such infectious pop hits as “Body Control” and “Your Love’s a Drug”) plans to continue her singing career in addition to her ongoing “Gossip Girl” stint. “I like to make music–I love to sing and write, and I love to perform, so I’m trying to figure out the release of my album. I have enough songs I feel comfortable putting out, and I want to do it the right way.”
