Leighton Meester has a new interview with Flaunt Magazine to promote the last season of Gossip Girl.
She compares her character in Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf, to herself in real life, saying, “I didn't even know people like Blair existed until I started the show. I often work 60 days straight with no days off. No mornings off. Every minute I'm working, unless I'm on an airplane. I just want to be comfortable every second I'm not in hair and makeup."
She also talks about how she eventually wants to become a mother, saying, “I definitely want kids. It's really important to me. I think it's going to be the one thing I do. That's your life, that's the meaning of life. Besides art, which I think is definitely part of that. And that all goes in with love and making children - making art. It's creating. I think that's the meaning of life."
Meester was also in ‘Country Strong’ last year, and explains how Tm McGraw turned her on to music - "Tim [McGraw] gave everyone a guitar, so I kind of taught myself and then wrote all my songs on the set of "The Oranges." And the songs are not poetic - They are just me. It's not more confident or colorful. It's just me. It just comes out of me."
