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 JustJared.com 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!!
