Leighton Meester might have worn a wedding dress for Gossip Girl, but in real life, it might not be for her.
Meester says she hasn’t dated much and isn’t sure if she’ll ever want to get married. The actress appears on the April cover of Marie Claire and tells the mag: “I never had a boyfriend until I was 18. It’s nice, I guess—when you like them. But it isn’t the most important thing.”
Leighton dated Sebastian Stan for two years before splitting with him in 2010, and the 25 year-old reveals, “I’m not sure I ever want to get married. The only time a relationship is good is when you really love them. I don’t want to hang out with some guy I just like.”
Not to mention, she has one of the coolest sounding names in Hollywood: Leighton Meester. It just flows off the tongue. Why would you want to change that?
It’s been five years since Leighton had her first day on the set of Gossip Girl, and she says a lot has changed since then.
"I'm a totally different person than when I started. I'm growing into an adult," she says. "I feel more mature than most people my age. I’m having this weird growth spurt. I'm starting to see my future differently. I'm getting ready for it."
Speaking of growing up fast, Leighton’s mom gave birth to her while serving time in a federal prison for drug trafficking.
“My family has a crazy history,” Meester admits, but she says that didn’t keep her from enjoying childhood.
“I played outside. I went to the beach. There were happy, fun times.”
