I think it’s safe to say we won’t get a Gossip Girl reunion anytime soon
In the new issue of PorterEdit, Leighton Meester opens up about her experience working on the hit CW show, Gossip Girl, and admits that it wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine. In fact, some days, there wasn’t any sunshine at all. When talking about her filming schedule, Leighton revealed QUOTE "I would get there at 5 a.m. and leave at 8 p.m., A lot of days I didn't see the sun."
Leighton also spoke about the effect being an overnight sensation had on her, admitting QUOTE "I was young when I started Gossip Girl. A lot more people were suddenly around and I was being looked at. If you don't have the right perspective, you could definitely be confused by people being that nice to you or judging you for behavior that's typical of a 20-, 21-year-old, making mistakes but having to make them very publicly, I'm not haunted by that time, but it's been interesting and helpful for me to look at it and examine it as an adult and go, 'I don't know if it was the healthiest environment.’”
She then went onto talk about how Gossip Girl sped up her journey of figuring out who she was, adding QUOTE " I had to figure it out quickly and with not a completely developed mind to discern between what's real and what's not, who I can trust and who I can't,"
As for if she misses the show, Leighton revealed QUOTE "I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's sort of a time capsule. A lot of the questions that come from it are: 'Do you miss it?' 'Did you love what you wore?' And I understand that, but—and I say this with nothing but love—it is like saying, 'High school was an amazing time for you. Do you wish you could go back?' And the truth is, it was so special and such a unique, amazing experience, but no, I wouldn't wanna go back to it. I was a kid!"
We can understand where she’s coming from, but as a die hard Gossip Girl fan myself, this makes me a little bummed. But right now it’s time for me to turn it over to you guys.
