She rose to fame with the iconic portrayal of New York socialite Blair Waldorf on the hit teen drama Gossip Girl.
Not many fans know that Leighton Meester is married to Adam Brody.
Aside from her astonishing acting talent, she’s also musically gifted. She even released a few hit songs.
One of the lesser-known facts about the actress is that at the time of her birth, her mother was actually in prison.
In fact, both of her parents were serving time for their involvement in a drug ring.
In real life, the actress is actually a natural blonde.
Despite her global fame and success, she has managed to keep her life as private as possible.
Another interesting thing about Meester is that she is not just a TV actress. She also appeared on Broadway in 2014.
Meester started acting long before Gossip Girl. It actually started on the crime procedural drama Law & Order.
To many fans’ disappointment, Leighton Meester and Blake Lively were not best friends in real life like their onscreen characters.
