Leighton Meester Reveals What She Has Learned as a Parent

Leighton Meester is on the cover of Shape magazine’s April 2019 issue.

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag…

On parenting her three-year-old daughter: “I feel that I am really lucky, and yet, still, I stepped into the hardest job in the world: being a mom. One thing I have come to learn as a parent is that you have to step back and let your child struggle a little—let them fall down at the playground. It’s the way they’re going to learn.”

On her exercise regime: “For the last six months, surfing has pretty much been my main form of exercise. I have found that when I don’t have a physical result in mind when I’m exercising—it’s not just about getting sore or getting abs or burning fat—I feel much more confident. I’m working on a skill, and that is so fulfilling to me. Plus, being in the ocean is such a spiritual experience that you forget you’re getting a real workout.”

On her eating habits: “I usually eat a ratio of 60:40 or 70:30 of healthy foods versus whatever I want. If I have a really nice, fulfilling breakfast and lunch, then for din­ner, all bets are off. For breakfast, I keep all the stuff for my morning smoothie in the freezer in resealable bags, so it’s pretty much all measured off—a lot of kale and spinach and collard greens. At work, I have salads with chicken or turkey or fish prepared by a personal chef, and then for dinner I’ll maybe eat tacos or whatever I crave—and fudge mint cookies. I love them so much that we always joke, Have you had your cookie today? Like it’s my vitamins.”

On struggling with balance: “I just don’t believe in balance. I think that’s not possible if you’re a working mother—and with single mothers, I can­not even imagine that. I love playing Angie because we discuss how hard the struggle is to feel like you are enough. Some days my husband makes dinner, and some days I do. Other days, I’m too tired, and I eat a bowl of cereal for dinner. It’s just the thing we do to make it work.”

Leighton Meester Explains Why She Doesn't Want to Go Back to 'Gossip Girl' Years

Leighton Meester looks gorgeous on the cover of PorderEdit‘s latest issue.

Here is what the 32-year-old Single Parents actress had to share with the mag:

On whether acting as a child was a passion or necessity for her family: “I never really wanted to stop. That being said, if I’d wanted to, could I have? I don’t know. I couldn’t really answer that question. I don’t know, and maybe because of that, I didn’t.”

On why the world is still obsessed with Gossip Girl but why she has evolved past Blair Waldorf: “It was a very special time…that was filled with challenges that have nothing to do with [Gossip Girl] and also sometimes things that did have something to do with it. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s sort of a time capsule. A lot of the questions that come from it are: ‘Do you miss it?’ ‘Did you love what you wore?’ And I understand that, but – and I say this with nothing but love – it is like saying, ‘High school was an amazing time for you, do you wish you could go back?’ And the truth is, it was so special and such a unique, amazing experience, but no, I wouldn’t wanna go back to it, I was a kid!”

On seeing a change in the roles she is offered since becoming a mother: “I do notice now a lot of roles that don’t really come my way, like the sexy ingénue. We need women who are more fully fleshed out on television and in film at every age, including young women who aren’t just there to be the love interest and the date.”

On finding her soulmate Adam Brody: “I wouldn’t change anything [in the past] because I’m happy where I am now. And I think that that’s one of the many wonderful parts of not only having a child and meeting your soulmate, but also I feel really lucky career-wise, really in a place that I want to be.”
