Steven Spielberg to Willa Holland: Say Cheese!

Steven Spielberg to Willa Holland: Say Cheese!

Gossip Girl starlet Taylor Momsen and guest star Willa Holland (The O.C.) film scenes for their hit CW show in downtown Manhattan on Friday.

Willa recently told Variety a little bit about her past: “I was playing over at Steven Spielberg‘s house (next door to stepfather and director Brian De Palma‘s place in the Hamptons) and he was filming little wedding scenes and doing home videos.”

Spielberg told Willa‘s parents, “You’ve got to put her in front of a camera!”

Also pictured: Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley filming at New York City’s Palace Hotel.

    Love Taylor’s outfit. Same can’t be said for Willa, though. Looks like she’s wearing lingerie from Ann Summers.

    Hey, Jared, thought you loved Angelina Jolie. Why haven’t you posted pictures from the Chaneling presscall in NYC?

    Helena, unfortunately, the pictures have been embargoed until The Changeling is released. :(

  • gg :]

  • kaylee

    i didn’t know her stepdad was a director, or that little steven spielberg bit.. interesting.

    it’s sad how people who probably have way more talent than her will never make it big because they don’t have the right connections.

    the entertainment industry is so fucked up :/

  • Vasy

    WOAH! FREAKKKYYY,,,, I JUST GOT THOSE SHOES THAT TAYLOR IS WEARING LIKE LITERALLY 2 HOURS AGO, MINE ARE BLACK, SAME BRAND BUT 100 $

  • massie

    I knew it
    It was a matter of time
    The guy who wrote the oc does gossip girl and it was a matter of time I’m excited!

  • mich

    i loveeeee willa , ever since the oc her lips are curved so nice and she’s so good makes me like her so muc more than jenny

  • Olivia

    Willa is pretty but I wish that Josh had not given her a role on GG. Being a huge former OC lover, I can’t help to see Willa as any other character than (her role on The OC) Marissa Cooper’s little sister. It messes with my head. Oh well… Can’t wait for GG to be back in 2 weeks!

  • Chelsea

    Willa is a total bitch, i saw her at a Urban Outfitters in LA and she was gross and full of herself. She was so put off that somebody recognized her.

  • payce8

    i like willa better than taylor
    i wish she could be a main in GG..
    lol

  • zack

    i love willa holland she is gorgeous.

    i like willa better than taylor

  • James Mason Fan

    Willa has a uniquely stunning beauty and is very photogenic (I believe she was a child model for many years) With Briana de Palma as her father, no doubt she knows the movie business quite well, and personally, I think Willa will make the transition to A-list and become one of Hollywood’s leading ladies. Big call, I know, but there you have it.

  • Leo

    hope to get off the psychotropic meds

  • http://www.stephaniemeyer.com Miss CulleN

    ahh, i loveee Ed! :) can´t wait to see more Blair-Chuck drama! haha

    but taylor… i don´t like her character anymore, i´m always hoping that Little Jenny decides to get the hell out of the show :/

    Peace,

  • carlie

    Willa is a lot better than Taylor, looks and talent-wise.

  • http://emile-hirsch.tripod.com Lindsay

    Ed is such a beautiful man….i want him!!!!

  • stef

    I SAWWW THEMMMMMMMMM!!

  • tiffany

    Ed is so sexy!

  • stfu

    Taylor has an ugly face. Seriously, how can anyone find this young tart pretty? She wears a ton of makeup and it still does not distract from her pedestrian face.

    Willa is pretty, but forgettable.

  • missme

    Well how convenient that her father is a director and she is a neighbor to Steven Spielberg. It seems Hollywood (for the most part) is all about who you know!

  • yeAH KAiTLIN

    i love willa she is so special!! talent and pretty!

  • cali

    I love Taylor’s shoes! What brand are they?

  • Tash

    Ed Westwick is officially the most beautiful man in NYC.

    What is with Jenny’s new look though?

    I love Willa Holland, cant wait to see her on GG :)

  • valen

  • shannon

    LOVE TAYLOR MOMSEN, she’s one of my fave actresses and only one month older than me…but people say she’s dating Chace Crawford…isnt that illegal? anywho i think that especially for the preview of the newest episode, episode 7 season two, the new haircut is good, nice and edgy…i wish i had the4 nerve to do something like that…
