Leighton Meester Covers 'Nylon' February 2011

Leighton Meester Covers 'Nylon' February 2011

Leighton Meester is picture perfect on the cover of Nylon magazine’s February 2011 issue!

Here’s what the 24-year-old Roommate actress had to share:

On her Gossip Girl character, Blair Waldorf: “Blair is…. I don’t know what she is… I have to enter a completely foreign body to sympathize with Blair and her decisions. You know, Blair grew up very savvy, well-educated, and lonely. I think her mother is not the most supportive person and… Blair is very competitive and conniving, and it obviously comes, usually, from a very human place, but she makes decisions that I would never make.”

On her Country Strong character, Chiles Stanton: “She is so scared of people thinking of her as this ignorant, vapid, pretty face, and you know, I can totally understand where she’s coming from because, especially if you come from Dallas, Texas, you’re a beauty queen – you don’t play the guitar, you’re writing seemingly meaningless pop songs. All that I can relate to, totally. It’s sad and sweet at the same time.”

On her family and friends: “I like to be judged by my family and friends because they know me. If they think I’m being an a–hole I’d like them to tell me, but if I’m fat or something I’m like, ‘Well, so? OK? Great!’ It doesn’t even matter; it’s like, ‘What if I am fat? Does it matter?’… I’m a grown woman and sometimes, I might be a little fat, you know! Am I alone there? Not really!”

    lol i was just another blog reading about how fat her back was. people are crazy.

  • lila

    When skinny girl;s call themselves fat I want to punch them. You can tell she knows shes not.

  • amber

    I don’t know what she is saying?? What a dumb interview.

  • GD

    I love Leighton :) She’s perfect as Blair Waldorf and most definitely NOT fat in any way shape or form. She’s gorgeous!

  • Ginger

    OMG. I like Leighton but that last question… She should not talk. It was very confusing like a middle schooler talking.

  • sophie

    @Ginger: I agree. Shes pretty but not very intelligent. All her interviews prove that, especially Allure, InStyle and Seventeen.

  • sophie

    @Ginger: I agree. She’s pretty but not intelligent. Her InStyle, Allure and Seventeen interviews prove that.

  • sophie

    ….that awkward moment where you think your comment wasn’t posted..

  • Zoe

    @sophie: Actually, she’s very intelligent.. i dont know wat interviews u’re reading.. but the answer isnt dumb, the question is.. whoever asked her that question is obviously not in their right mind.. wat else are u supposed to say when someone asks u “wat do u think about when ppl call u fat?”

  • jean

    How is it sweet being stereotyped as an ignorant idiot? Wow this girl is dumb.

  • sophie

    @Zoe: Oh are you stupid too? I clearly said InStyle, Allure and Seventeen.

  • mandy


    dumb what? i think this interview is okay. not her best interview but it’s just okay!

    JJ should post her glamour cover. her glamour photoshoot is so beautiful.

  • Alison

    ugly and stupid

  • gg

    Agrees it’s not her best interview. She’s not dumb though.
    Well..have fun bashing a celeb if it makes you feel better :)

  • MaisyRL

    @sophie @amber @ginger girl can’t be that stupid if she’s the one making the most $$ on projects outside of Gossip Girl. also, the last answer sounds sincere. she’s defending the idea of being a little overweight in the eyes of hollywood and her family. if you think that answer is stupid…you’d think Kate Winslet and Keira Knightly’s weight answers are absurd, rude, and inappropriate.

  • gg fan

    thats the perfection..

  • wow


    agree. lot of insecure girls here in this site. lol.
    i think she is just perfect,beautiful and smart.

  • Zoe

    @sophie: umm, i never called u stupid!! and she’s only defending herself because some ppl said that leighton’s getting a little fat.. geez.. i dont think she’s fat at all and ppl who call her fat obviously dont know wat fat means..

  • mmmk

    gawd i am so in love with her

  • sarah

    People is she spoke about fat it’s bc a lot of blind people and stupid said and in JJ too that she was fat, being fat with her double chin and if you look at GG season 1 you can see that she was skinnier but me i think she is perfect a great example bc you always saw her eat, she is not one of these salad girls. It’s the fault of dump people that she spoke about fat

  • Shannon

    Love Leighton! <3 She’s so honest about so many things. Unlike one certain blonde bimbo. *rolls eyes*
