Leighton Meester: Don’t Call Blair A “Flat-Out B!tch”

By  | 

Leighton Meester landed the cover of next month’s Cosmopolitan — Australian edition, for those of you lucky Aussies — and talked about how great her Gossip Girl alter-ego is. We couldn’t agree more, obvs. She told the mag, “I love Blair and I love playing her, so to call her just a flat-out bitch is generalizing a bit.”

I have several seasons of Gossip Girl on DVD and love to watch them at night or on trips.”

Click to see what Leighton has to say about being on Gossip Girl and the “B” word (uh, not Blair).

On her Blair Waldorf: “We’re a lot alike. She’s very realistic. The way she talks, the things she does and says are a reflection of pretty much what every girl has been through.”

On her signature Blair-isms: “The way I play her, I think it is fun to bring out that little bit of campness to the bitchy lines and little remarks she has.”

On her Queen B behavior: “But I think it is her insecurity that makes her act the way she does… and the way she was brought up. So there is always a motive behind it.”
