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?

    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 :/

    Olivia Says:

    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!

    Willa is a total *****, 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.

    James Mason Fan Says:

    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.

    Peace,

    stfu Says:

    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 Says:

    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!
