Leighton Meester Remembers the Daze

Leighton Meester Remembers the Daze

Gossip Girl cutie Leighton Meester (in Missoni) puts the squeeze on director Jess Manafort at the premiere of Newstyle Releasing’s Remember The Daze at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre on Tuesday.

Remember the Daze opens in theaters this Friday. The film gives us a glimpse into the teenage wasteland of suburbia 1999 that takes place over 24-hours, and the teenagers who make their way through the last day of high school in the last year of the past millennium.

If you recall, Leighton told back in February that she met her friend and producer, Shahine Ezell, on the set of Remember the Daze. Since then, the two have been writing lyrics and collaborating on her album together.

Rumors are also floating this morning that Leighton didn’t get along with costar Nan Zhang, which is why she left the show. Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz has been telling people that Zhang “abruptly left” and enrolled at Brown University during the writer’s strike. Leighton‘s rep denied the rumor: “Absolutely not true.”

And last but not least, Leighton turns the big 22 today. Ms. Meester and some of her Gossip Girl castmates went to Central Nightclub to celebrate the new flick and her birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEIGHTON!!

  • crazy gurl

    wait what she left the show when? +
    she look cute

  • matthew

    i know people love her because they love GG, but i have a feeling this girl is going to be the next Lohan. she’s got an awful reputation amongst her old friends & the circles she used to run with out here in LA (a lot of whom I know) before she booked GG, so it’s funny hearing people fawn over someone they know nothing about, who’s not even particularly talented to begin with. yep, the nan zhang thing sounds exactly like the leighton i’ve been hearing about . . . this girl is going to be trouble.

  • robin

    wow, she’s not as pretty as i had thought before…

    she’s skinny, but she looks like she doesn’t exercise at all, which always comes off as weird looking to me

  • Sophia
