Leighton Likes Her Men ‘Dark and Bad’

If Leighton Meester and her TV alter-ego Blair Waldorf ever met, they might end up fighting for the affection of Gossip Girl bad boy Chuck Bass.

“I think guys who are rebels and make their own rules are appealing,” the actress, 22, tells Seventeen magazine for its March issue. “I don’t want to tame anybody. I want them to be dark and bad.”

Hard-working Meester, however, isn’t looking for an outright troublemaker. “[G]uys who are a little bad – and by bad, I mean they’re not like constantly around – I consider gold,” she explains. “Guys who are unavailable are actually a dream come true for me because I’m unavailable all the time. It’s great they’re not down your throat.”

She has been dating actor Sebastian Stam since 2007, but tells the magazine, “I haven’t ever really relied on relationships with guys. … They come around and it’s cool, but it’s never been a big thing. I guess I’ve just been really distracted by work.”

The Florida native, whose parents had brushes with the law before she was born (Meester’s mother gave birth to her while serving a prison sentence), also reveals what she learned from her mom and dad’s mistakes.

“It made me realize that you can’t judge anyone – especially your parents – for what they’ve done in their past, because people change,” she says.

Meester has also learned not to be a real gossip girl. “I’ve noticed some people get very enthralled with people bashing,” she says. “Sometimes people can’t help themselves. But I find a way [to] back out and not talk about other people.”

So as one of Hollywood’s hottest young actresses, how does she handle being talked about?

“Even when people are so judgmental about what you wear or your weight,” she says, “you just have to step away and be like, ‘I’m a normal, fine human being.'”

Ed Westwick, the Upper East Side’s hottest heartthrob

Heres an article on Ed recently released from Independent.Co.Uk. In the interview Ed mentions how he loves living in New York, why he thinks so many people like Chuck and yes, he does briefly mention Chuck/Blair. On a side note, season two of Gossip Girl officially premieres in the UK tonight!

A strange thing happens ahead of my meeting with Ed Westwick aka ‘Gossip Girl”s smooth-talking, flash-dressing bad boy Chuck Bass: I start to get inundated with texts and phone calls from England, all of them asking the same thing: “Have you interviewed him yet? What’s he like? Phone me immediately you’ve finished and let me know.”

The people making these phone calls are otherwise sane, rational human beings of both sexes, yet their interest in ‘Gossip Girl”s most devious gossip boy appears to verge on obsession. Not since a long ago interview with a pre-‘Shameless’ James McAvoy have so many people been so keen to ask me what an interviewee is really like.

The answer is that, like McAvoy, Westwick is likeable, candid and down-to-earth. When we meet on a cold Sunday night in a Manhattan bar, he starts talking the instant we sit down, pausing only to order a beer: “Sorry if my voice sounds a bit odd, we were just doing this crazy shoot for ‘Rolling Stone’ and they made us pretend to have a pillow fight so the feathers got everywhere and now I keep thinking that I’ve got some stuck in my throat. I’ll probably start choking or something.”

Stray feathers apart, it appears that little fazes Westwick who manages to be refreshingly open about life in the spotlight while remaining both unbothered by the idea of fame and by the notion that it might stop him doing whatever he fancies. “It can be crazy,” he admits referring to the attention devoted to ‘Gossip Girl”s young cast by the New York paparazzi. “But I came to a decision once everything started taking off that I wasn’t going to be imprisoned by it [success]. I didn’t see the need to restrict myself, if I want to go out and get pissed up then I’m going to go out and get pissed up. As long as it’s not damaging me or anyone else then I don’t think it’s a problem.”
