    Leighton Meester is incredibly gorgeous. American perfection doesn’t get much purer than her. She has now begun her ascension to the A-list with The Roommate being No. 1. It would be good if she gets a role in the new Superman, Avengers or Star Trek movies.

  • BEAN

    Love Minka, love Leighton but the film doesn’t look that good at all and the storyline isn’t all that interesting so why it topped the box office is beeeeeyond me. I don’t mind seeing pretty people on the big screen but I think I’ll leave this for one of those rainy days when Im bored and watch it online.

  • Ash

    I’m glad it did decent at the box office. She played crazy well lol. As much as I <3 her this is not the movie that will put her on the map. I’m hoping The Oranges does.

  • Jime

    When I watched the trailer I thought I looked pretty amateur. Somehow Im happy it did ok, because I love leighton :) I hope she gets a movie that turns her into a A-lister

  • Kwanten Power

    You have no star power Leighton Meester.You are a wretched creature.The ugly ducking that will never be a swan……N E V E R !!!!

  • ugh

    i guess natalie portman was too busy with her oscar campaign and pregnancy to promote the other woman. shame she could have had 3 movies in the top 10

  • Anna

    Awesome! I wouldn’t be watching gg if it weren’t for her.

  • r.

    Leighton was amazing in it. Get it, gurl!

  • Stacey Connelly

    When The Green Lantern is released, the public will be bewildered between it, The Green Hornet and the Green Arrow from Smallville.

  • gg fan

    some people are jealousing Leighton because she is beautiful and talented but seriously ENOUGH!

  • http://J.net Kaz simply Amaazzing !!!!!!!!

    They lookalike .lol

  • Meg

    I watched The Roommate last night and it so much fun! The film is campy and Leighton was amazing. She was so convincing as a psycho and I was really impressed with her acting.

    Any one ?

    Just i want see 1

  • Delphic

    The film looks pretty bad, but I think Leighton will inevitably get good roles. Hopefully.

    Shut up Kwanten you bobbleheaded freak. What a dumba$$!!!!

    Can I *** u two-doggy style

  • Julia

    I’m super happy for Leighton! It’s so nice to see that her movie is doing well. She’s so sweet and waaaaaay much prettier than Blake. I can’t wait to see more of her :)

  • MaisyRL

    go leighton and minka! people can say: superbowl weekend and zero competition from other opening movies helped the roommate get number 1. no matter what the explanation, the fact remains that this movie opened at number 1. another fact: leighton and minka carried this movie; just 2 people. leighton wasn’t in a cast of 3-4 well known actors, or starring with a big named actor/actress opposite her. she can claim this book office success as her own, as can minka. amazing for their budding careers. talent tends to triumph over hype occasionally. hopefully now i’ll stop reading that ridiculous nonesense that a certain GGer is an Alist star. none of them are, but some are closer than others.

    Oi !!! You want to do the gruesome twosome doggy style??? I think I’m going to vomit!!!

  • Serena Champness

    It will be intriguing to see what happens next week at the box office. Just Go With It has an interesting cast including the incredibly gorgeous Brooklyn Decker and voluptuous Heidi Montag.
    Gnomeo & Juliet has an all-star cast and features the stunningly beautiful Emily Blunt.
    Justin Bieber: Never Say Never which I hope bombs and should have gone straight to the shelves at Blockbuster next to the other straight to DVD releases from the likes of Michael Madsen, Ron Perlman, Eric Roberts, Christian Slater, Ving Rhames, Steven Seagal, Jean Claude Van Damme, Cuba Gooding Jr, Wesley Snipes, Armand Assante, Michael Biehn, Cary Elwes, etc.
    There is also The Eagle.
    Cedar Rapids and In Her Skin have interesting casts as well and are only getting limited releases. We won’t find out how they would have done commercially if released nationwide.

  • mailey

    leighton’s prettier than the older one.

  • JC

    The Bilson movie made like $10,000 for the weekend from the three theaters it was released in. JJ mentions everything else about her boring life but doesn’t mention her when she actually opens an awful movie that nobody went to see.

  • Zoe

    They look like sisters!

  • Jokergurl

    Leighton is a good actress, the reason why the film got number one is because it’s Superbowl weekend, and there’s not much competition, as soon as a Marvel movie comes out these movies will get crushed.

  • Maggie

    The power of leighton freaking meester. Go leighton we love you! She was total batshit crazy in the roommate. I hope with this success of the movie will bring bunch of good quality role offered to her.

  • Maggie

    @Jokergurl:

    Still. It topped james cameron movie.

  • Susie

    @Jokergurl:
    That’s not rocket science. Or course Marvel movies will do better. The roommate did ok considering.. Go Leigh.

  • Erik

    I think Blake lively has way more potential of becoming an a lister than leighton.

  • kelly

    @Erik:
    f.u.c.k off

    leighton meester>blake lively.
    talent, look side. everything.

  • yup

    Blake Lively is the Katie Holmes of Dawson’s Creek. Katie Holmes had all the rage right when Dawsons Creek was ending and look where she is now.

  • B

    Blake doesn’t even have all the rage from Gossip Girl. She’s a snoozefest with no talent whatsoever.

    Nobody cares about her except gossip magazines and stupid Vogue nobody in fashion industry cares about anymore.

    And it’s because her PR people always release fabricated news that she’s getting this and that A-List roles while we all see she’s landed none. Oh, and also stop putting her down our throat that she’s hooking up with all male a-listers regardless of he’s married or not.

  • anna

    It sucks that Anna Winter put Blake under her wing. Leighton is way prettier and a better actress by far!!
    I don’t know if this id my type of movie though. I’m still shaking from black swan!
    She and Minka totally look like sisters too, which definitely adds to the creepy factor!

  • http://justjared you have to be kidding

    Was Minka Kelly supposed to have been a freshmen in college?

    Leighton believable as a freshmen…..Minka not so much.

  • Drake

    Terrible movie

  • soi

    They definitely look a lot alike- both gorgeous.

    Beautiful girls but bad remake of Single White Female. I hope they both get better projects in the future.
