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 is lovvvvvvvvvve<3

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 :/

i couldnt agree more!!!

They totally look a like.. Willa is gorgeousss!

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

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!

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

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.

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

i love willa holland she is gorgeous.

i like willa better than taylor

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.

hope to get off the psychotropic meds

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,

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

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

I SAWWW THEMMMMMMMMM!!

Ed is so sexy!

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.

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!

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

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

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 :)

can’t wait to see willa on gossip giirl :D

willa is way prettier than taylor

I hate her new look. shes 15!

arh!

willa is such a babe :) taylors hot

hey to the chelsea girl who saw willa at uo. Did u see her at the one on melrose or westwood?

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…
