Leighton Meester is on the cover of September's Harper's Bazaar, and inside the magazine she posed for a series of photos that show her from the ages of 20-50 — accomplished with the help of makeup and Photoshop, of course. In her interview, Leighton addresses her rumored sex tape and Ed Westwick even shares his first impressions of her. Here's more:
- On her alleged sex tape: "[The tape] is not real, so it makes me sort of sad. It's unfortunate that it got carried as far as it did. I definitely understand the nature of people better now and that the mere allegation of something like that could be headline news. People think it's real because somebody says it is. By the way, [as for] me being 18 in those pictures, I don't believe I was."
- On fame: "I don't want most of what comes along with all of this. I'm doing everything I can to keep things separate. I feel like my friends are in a cult because we're like, 'No outsiders!' I've never been crazy. I'm a very good girl, to be honest. I don't do anything to hurt anybody. Honestly, all I ever do is work."
- On her guilty pleasures: "You know, I'm trying to think of what I'm ashamed of. But, damn, I don't really have any shame."
- Ed Westwick on Leighton: "She can handle these big, gigantic sandwiches, and she's got the most tiny, little gorgeous figure. . . . The first thing I thought when I met Leighton was, 'F*cking hell, this girl's gorgeous.' And she was incredibly sweet. Now we tell each other to f*ck off whenever we want to. . . . We've been fake shagging for a year and a half now."
