Leighton Meester plays a selfish brat on Gossip Girl, but in real life the actress is independent, grounded and not at all like the Blair Waldorf. The young actress says love is an important part of her life. Leighton Meester is on the cover of the most recent Seventeen magazine and dished with the magazine about her love life.
Meester is promoting Country Strong. Gwyneth Paltrow stars in Country Strong, in a film about a fallen country superstar and her road to redemption. Meester and Paltrow star in the film along with Tim McGraw and Garrett Hedlund.
The actress broke up with longtime boyfriend, actor Sebastian Stan, in April but she says she’s okay. In the Seventeen magazine interview, Leighton claims that having a boyfriend just isn’t that big a deal.
“I think that the importance of love is really strong for me in my life, whether it’s a guy or a friend or just my puppy,” she tells the teen magazine. “I think love changes you over time, and whether you have good or bad experiences, you always grow and learn from it.”
