Leighton Meester Covers 'British Cosmopolitan' October 2012

Leighton Meester Covers 'British Cosmopolitan' October 2012

Leighton Meester shows off her back on the cover of British Cosmopolitan‘s October 2012 issue, on newsstands and available as a digital edition September 13.

Here is what the 26-year-old Gossip Girl actress had to share with the mag:

On not wearing makeup: “I don’t care if there are a million pictures of me with no makeup. I love being able to walk down the street without it. We should promote women not having to wear makeup, or at least feel we can go out without it.”

On comparing her style to Blair Waldorf’s: “I’ve never seen Blair with the same bag, coat or shoes twice. I don’t know anyone who had that. I had two pairs of jeans [when I was a teenager] that I rotated. I wouldn’t trust myself with a Prada brag! I didn’t even want to change for gym so I’d wear sweatpants over my jeans, then sweat around the track for an hour.”

On being awkward around people: “If I’m not around close friends or family, I can get quiet and awkward, and it probably comes off as not very nice or just plain weird! It’s not meant to. I try to pull myself out of it but sometimes it’s hard for me to open up. In the past it was easier for me to trust people. Nowadays I judge pretty quickly: ‘You just want to be my friend because I’m on a TV show.’”

She is so pretty.

# 2

Beautiful. She can act her booty off too. I really like this girl. I wish her the best.

# 3

I understand what she is saying about being awkward around new people. One person told me she thought I was a b**ch until she got to know me.

# 4

I love her, and wish her all the best, nowadays feel like she’s being degraded. She should have gone far than this.

I’m making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I’m my own boss. This is what I do, ===>>> Green32.comGET it

YES! I freaking love Leighton!

I never wear makeup either. In fact, I can’t because it irritates my skin. So when people tell me I’m pretty, I know they’re complimenting me and not my makeup skills. It’s a refreshing feeling. I’m awkward and quiet around people I don’t know very well and everyone assumes I’m always like that when I’m not. I’m very talkative when I’m around my friends.

Leighton is always a breath of fresh air – not just gorgeous, but candid and grounded as well.

I don’t understand why Blake was the one to blow up and not Leighton. Not hating on Blake, but Leighton seems more deserving of all the hype. This girl can act, has better red carpet style, and she truly made it on her own.

FOUR THOUSAND TIMES PRETTIER THAN BLAKE!!!!

Love how there are no hate comments here.
She deserves a lot more exposure. Not only is she a great actress, the girl can sing as well. Best of luck Legihton!

*Leighton :)

Leighton is an amazing woman! Love her so much, she has all my respect!

I love this girl so much. After all the mother drama, and GG being over soon, I’m ready for her to explode into movies and singing! She’s so strong and devoted. My idol, truly. She’s beyond gorgeous and deserves the best.

I actually met her too. And she’s the sweetest to her fans. She’s perfect.

I love her, such a good actress. On Gossip Girl her character has really grown. Blair is ridiculous sometimes but real. Unlike Serena, to me she’s been the same in all the seasons.

I usually don’t like or at least don’t care about those actresses from teens tv shows,but Leighton seems so sweet and humble.I feel it’s quite impossible not to like her.

Wow she looks amazing! She’s so sweet and ‘real’. I wish I had skin like hers.

OMG LEIGHTON BABY. Beyond gorgeous. Love her so much, god.

Always so much positive comments about Leighton. Love it! Well-deserved! She’s my favorite on Gossip Girl, her scenes are the only scenes I look forward to. Well, hers and chuck’s. :)

Oh gosh, she looks phenomenal. She really is perfection: her personality, acting, singing, looks.

Give me some, Leighton? :)
