Leighton Meester: Sex Tape Denial

Leighton Meester: Sex Tape Denial

Leighton Meester graces the “big fashion issue” cover for Harper’s Bazaar‘s September 2009 issue, on stands August 18th.

In an ode to the mag’s most popular editorial franchise “Fabulous at Every Age,” the Gossip Girl star ages gracefully through the decades with the help of some digital enhancements. Check it out below — Leighton in her 20′s and one in her 50′s! Here are some interview highlights:

On the alleged sex tape: “[The tape] is not real, so it makes me sort of sad. It’s unfortunate that it got carried as far as it did… I definitely understand the nature of people better now and that the mere allegation of something like that could be headline news. People think it’s real because somebody says it is.”

On the pitfalls of fame: “I don’t want most of what comes along with all of this. I’m doing everything I can to keep things separate. I feel like my friends are in a cult because we’re like, No outsiders! I’ve never been crazy. I’m a very good girl, to be honest. I don’t do anything to hurt anybody. Honestly, all I ever do is work.”

On aging and Botox: “Any fear of aging, I think, is simply vanity because what comes with age is so many wonderful things: wisdom, understanding. Every year, I’m always happy to be done with the previous age. If people want [to get Botox], do it.”

Co-star Ed Westwick on meeting Leighton for the first time: “The first thing I thought when I met Leighton was, F—ing hell, this girl’s gorgeous. And she was incredibly sweet. Now we tell each other to f— off whenever we want to.”

FYI: Leighton is wearing Derek Lam dress on the cover and below, she’s toting the long-side chain printed jaguar bag by Derek Lam.

Ed’s comments about Leighton are lovely :D

She is such a f*ckin liar!!!
Honestly, when her sex tape came out, I sympathized with her. But the fact that she’s sitting there and saying that its not real is really messed up and wrong. She should just admit and be done with it and move on. But don’t lie about not having a sex tape……especially when everyone knows that its REAL…….and believe me, its the real deal.

Beautiful and classy cover.

Ed&Leighton are lovely together as friends and comments which Ed said about Leight are really sweet! ; )))

I like only pics when she’s in her own age. Cover’s so so…

@Kate: Calm down, girl.

brave for a celeb to do a different photoshooting. I think she’s sweet, whether that tape is real or not.

@kate

you do know that there can just be pictures, right? in the full interview, she admitted to the pictures. relaxxxx. it’s not like she’s dissing sex tapes or people who make them.

the full quote:

“[The tape] is not real,” she says bluntly, “so it makes me sort of sad. It’s unfortunate that it got carried as far as it did.” She pauses. “I definitely understand the nature of people better now and that the mere allegation of something like that could be headline news. People think it’s real because somebody says it is.” She takes a sip of her Coke. “By the way, [as for] me being 18 in those pictures, I don’t believe I was.

ah shes so pretty. i would love to meet her one day! she seems like a genuine person and what shes saying is right. lol at the tuxedo picture !!

I think her sex-tape is real

Love what Ed said.

Don’t jump on Kate for telling it like it is. I too, agree with everything she said. Leighton made a sex tape and she should own up to it instead of lying about it. Yes, she took some very inappropriate pictures, but she also made a sex tape even though she’s lying about it. And I’m not purposely trying to bash Leighton but that part about her being a “good girl” is pretty funny. Especially when its a fact that she’s done weed and marijuana and still does it from time to time. Some people who work on set have even seen her do it, even though she’s tried to hide it, but unlucky for her, no one is that stupid.

I think the tape is real also, I hope she gets exposed and Iam tired of these for the moment IT girls on the cover, why don’t they put more black actresses on the cover

love love what Ed said about her. :)
she is effin gorgeous!

Here goes the race card, really, cut the ****. They put f’n black people on the cover all the time!!

& if Leighton denies it, then believe her because the tape looked sketchy anyways

I have my doubts regarding the tape, I don’t think is real, we’ll have to see.

I think the tape is real, however, I don’t know about her lying about it. Maybe her PR team told her against it. We still haven’t seen the tape. We scene pictures yet no tape. Maybe she did poses of the most sexual kind. There must be a reason for her to deny that the tape is not real. Maybe they got a hold on the tape before it hit stands. As for her saying shes a good girl, I don’t know what her definition of good is. If there was a tape, she should have just admitted to it, but I can understand that she doesn’t want the fame that comes from being acknowledged as someone who has a sex tape.
