Leighton Meester Doesn't Want To Be Blair Again, Ever

Leighton Meester holds onto a Roger Vivier Prismick shoulder bag while on the Gossip Girl set in New York City on Monday afternoon (September 24).

The 26-year-old actress recently spoke to Refinery29 about leaving Blair Waldorf behind as the hit CW series comes to a close.

“I think the best part is that now I can pretty much do whatever I want with my life. I can visit my family as much as I want and be open for other projects,” Leighton shared.

She added, “That was one of the biggest barriers over the past six years. I think you sort of get into a comfort zone when you are on a show for so long and you stop being stimulated by the character. As much as I loved the people I work with, I’m ready to move on. I don’t want to be a Blair-like character in a movie, ever.”

She would hardly have a career if it were not for Gossip Girl.

@fdsfdsfdsf: Doesn’t mean she should try other things or that she should want to play Blair forever.

Wow, ungrateful much? Seriously… I wouldn’t want to take her on as an actress if this was her attitude…

Yikes..she makes Blake Lively sound like Mother Teresa.

Because before Gossip Girl, I knew Leighton as “Wasn’t she the girl that was on House for a few episodes?”

She’s not being ungrateful. She never said a bad word about the show. All she said is that she’s happy to be able to try something new, and doesn’t ever want to play the same character like Blair again. I don’t see how that’s a bad thing; she’s played her for six years now.
