Leighton Meester Covers 'Marie Claire' April 2012

Leighton Meester Covers 'Marie Claire' April 2012

Leighton Meester is mellow in yellow on the cover of Marie Claire‘s April 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (March 20).

Here’s what the 25-year-old actress, who wore Reed Krakoff on the cover, had to share:

On her family life growing up: “My family has a crazy history. Probably the craziest I’ve heard of….I look back now and I see it in a nice light. It wasn’t uncomplicated. But I played outside. I went to the beach. There were happy, fun times.”

On having “adult” concerns as a kid: “I couldn’t relate to kid stuff. ‘Jimmy doesn’t like me!’ Who cares? I was worried we didn’t have gas money or food. Those were my concerns.”

On relationships: “I never had a boyfriend until I was 18. It’s nice, I guess – when you like them. But it isn’t the most important thing. I’m not sure I ever want to get married. The only time a relationship is good is when you really love them. I don’t want to hang out with some guy I just like.”

Her lousy parents obvs damaged her when it comes to relationships, whether she will admit it or not. Liking someone is key to being able to love them.

…she’s still around? LOL once gossip girl is done she’ll be done.

I guess she had a cool life. It’s great when you’re pretty and happen to have a bad ass life to go with it!


I think you missed her point, I beleive she may be sying, she doesn’t wan tto hang out with some boy she just likes, i.e., someone that you don’t see yourself falling inlove with even after a few months of dating, to continue dating for the heck of it. You have to read the meaning in people’s words, not just the “words”. lol
