Leighton Meester Lucky Talks Love & Life

By Tuesday, June 05, 2012 , ,

Yes I watch Gossip Girl and I love it! But, what I really adore, or should I say whom I really adore is Leighton Meester, for her clothing on and off the show.  So when I saw her on the cover of Lucky, I was delighted. Inside the July issue she gives the scoop on everything from her new movie That's My Boy,  to deets on falling in love and her make-up routine.  Lucky for you, I have all her juicy answers highlights right here!

On her latest film That’s My Boy: “It’s different than anything I’ve ever done before,” she says, “100 percent comedy, very funny, super-raunchy.”
On working with Adam Sandler: “Adam is so personable, so good to everyone. I’ve never been able to improvise my own jokes and lines before, but Adam created an environment where that could happen.”
On the undergarment she detests: “A little-known fact is that when I’m performing, I like to wear a bodysuit beneath whatever I’m wearing,” she confides out of nowhere. “I hate bras, at least when I’m singing.”
On knowing if she’d be successful: She pauses for a minute, “I don’t know. Yes?” she finally ventures. “But you can’t count on success in this business. And anyway, being famous or rich or making a certain kind of movie—none of that means ‘success’ to me. Success to me is being happy and fulfilled, truly fulfilled, and being proud of myself and doing different things all the time. So thus far, yes, I’ve been successful.”
On if she wants to get married: “Not yet,” says Meester. When asked if she could envision getting married, she replies, “Yes! Especially now that I know you don’t have to be married to have children; when I was a kid I thought marriage was sex, but if I ever am in a situation where I want to be married, I don’t think I’ll have a big wedding. Hopefully it would be about something way more secure than that.”
On how her Gossip Girl character, Blair Waldorf, has changed her style: “My friend says that before the show I dressed like a homeless person,” says Leighton. “I used to buy everything at garage sales. It was hard to give up! I’d be like, ‘But this crazy sweater is amazing, and it only cost 25 cents!’” “I’ve learned from Blair, though. Now I like to pepper in something designer”—she tugs at her Isabel Marant sweatshirt—“with my usual stuff.”
On her makeup routine: “I’ve stopped wearing makeup when I’m not working,” she continues, kindly ignoring my poor cruise-director-ing. “For a while I thought I had dark circles and bad skin, and then I realized I was seeing myself that way because I didn’t recognize myself anymore without makeup. Now when I wear it, I think I look really weird!”
On falling in love: “I love love,” says Meester. “It’s the most intriguing universally understood emotion, and it comes in so many forms: family love, love of friends. I fall in love with everybody all the time.”
On having roommates vs. living alone: “I used to have roommates all the time. Living alone—it’s so great to get to know yourself, and how weird you are, which can be pretty weird. ... You can be like, ‘I spent all day watching that?!’”
On her guilty pleasure: “I loooove Giada De Laurentiis and Nigella Lawson, and Gabriele Corcos and Debi Mazar are so charming and funny and make everything look super-easy,” she sighs.
