Jessica Szohr: Teen Vogue Cover Girl

at . Comments

Jessica Szohr appears on the cover of February's Teen Vogue.

The actress is often the target of scorn from Gossip Girl fans, if only because her character, Vanessa, is probably the third-year show's least popular.

That's putting it politely.

She also breaks the hearts of many teenage girls by being co-star Ed Westwick's real-life girlfriend. The cuties have been dating for about a year now.

Jessica says it's a challenge, since they were best friends first.

"It can be a little awkward when all of a sudden [you have feelings for] a friend; someone you'd call to talk about a different boyfriend," she confesses.

"But there wasn't a lot of thinking and talking. It kind of just happened. We had fun together, and we were like, 'All right, let's see where this goes.'"

Teen Vogue Cover Girl

Jessica Szohr looks lovely on the cover of Teen Vogue.

Ed Westwick is a "really rad guy," the Gossip Girl star adds. "He's awesome, smart and talented and adorable, and we make each other laugh."

They don't have Valentine's Day plans yet - last year they went to Jamaica with Leighton Meester and Sebastian Stan - but they'll have fun regardless.

"We go to dinners, have nights by ourselves and fun romantic times in general," she says. "And a lot of times I like just cuddling up on the couch."

Aww. Ed is a cuddler, who knew?

Jessica says going out in public with Ed can be difficult because of his distinct, recognizable appearance. "That's Chuck Bass!" is frequently heard.

As for Szohr, she often hears from people on the street that she "looks a lot like Vanessa from Gossip Girl." LOL. Her response? "Yeah, I get that."

She looks effing beautiful, all the crazy sad other fans who hate Jessica can f*** off, let Jessica have the limelight for once.


@getittogethermayne She has gotten covers before dating Ed,dumb ass and she even gotten tv coverage because she is on Gossip Girl. Do research before saying dumb shit like the rest of the haters. Jess is the definition of model, stupid. She is exotic looking and doesn't even have to try like Chace. Again why look her magazine photos if you think she is not attractive? That is like buying Paris Hilton's cd but you hate her voice.


I think Jessica is a terrible actress, and I don't find her attractive. Not in a model sense, not in a typically beautiful sense. I would have thought that someone who was a model before GG would have done a better job modeling, but I guess she's as terrible as her acting. I have no idea what her personality is like, but you can hardly find an article about her where she isn't mentioning Ed in some capacity, and that's the definition of riding someone else's coattails to fame. Bitches, please. She would hardly be mentioned if she weren't dating Ed, just like she was hardly mentioned in all of season 1 and the bulk of season 2. as soon as it came out that she was dating Ed, she went from obscurity to hype. you tell me there isn't a correlation between the two. or maybe she was just sucking an exec off in the back room. I DUNNO.


fuck her, bitch


Agree with iwantsomebass :)


First I have to say Leighton fans complaining about her being brought into things that have nothing to do with her is so soooooooooo freaking hilarious! I can't go to a site, forum, or post of Blake without seeing "Leighton's so much prettier!" "Blake sucks. Go leighton!" "Leighton should have been on this cover." "Blake's poking her head out, she should take pointers from leighton on how to pose." (I literally saw that) Second. Jessica is not getting covers just because she's dating Ed. Of course that brings her more attention but that's not the sole reason. It could, maybe be that she's on "Gossip Girl"?! I don't see George Clooney's random girlfriend on any you? Third. How in the hell do you get "hypocrite" from jessica deciding to eat meat??? Do you even know the meaning of the word. It doesn't look like it. And finally. SHE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.


IMO Jess is a gorgeous actress and she seems like an amazing person and she also seems so down to earth. Also Ed and her make a cute couple. I have nothing against her nor her character. I actually find Vanessa interesting. I'm sick of all the bashing on her! Also, I think the whole "leighton thing" is that Leighton has probably the biggest fanbase, and it's great. But it seems like some of her fans (blair fans) are totally unfair to Taylor,Jessica and Blake. Also, it seems like she can do no wrong. Again only SOME of Leighton's fans do that.I love Leighton, but I also love Jess,Ed, Penn,Taylor and everyone on the show. Everyone's entitled to their opinion,but sometimes it gets delusional!


@ ella." and we hate vanessa cause shes a bad actor, not the worst, but not good, and she's just anoyying in her ways, it the opinions of the people so dont says we want to be like blair, cause thats not the reason at all.


@L.Alexander: i never said taylor, blake, or jess were whores or that if they make a mistake they shouldnt be given another chance, so really you should not take my comment so literaly. I was just saying the video doesnt make her trashy, THATS ALL! Every star does something 'over the top'. So next time dont respond if you have no idea what your talking about!


It's rediculous why people don't like vanessa. It's because Blair doesn't like vanessa on the show, and all the fans want to be like's sad.


Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
