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."

to i love you They don't have twitter. Jessica doesn't have a twitter, ed doesn't have a twitter and Chace doesn't have a twitter. I can create a twitter saying i'm britney spears but that doesn't mean I'm her. Those were all fake. Don't believe them.


@ Queen T
well duh... it's anne rice! that's real literature.
but basically my icon is protest to Twishit.

But I think she's talented with the little acting experience she has compared with her castmates. And this shoot really she's her innate ability to model for the camera @ Queen T
Thank you! compare to the others she actually had the least but she actually the best model out of the females imo (ed takes the best photos for magazines). She was a model for years before being an actress and this is not her first cover either.


@ patricia and celine A. it is delusional to want two people you've never met in your life and say they are better for each other than their significant others (but according to these fans seb and leighton are fine together its ed who is slumming). B. do you really think that I care if people on this site dislike me. I won't ever meet in you guys in real life most likely and if I did I we most likely would not talk about Gossip Girl, or whether you hate or love Jess/Vanessa. Maybe how twilight sucks but not about Gossip Girl happenings. C. My icon has to do with Twishit and how Lestat would rip Edward Cullens apart. D. apparently I am all sunshines and rainbows because I smile too much. I am just bat shit crazy!

Queen t

So back to the subject... She looks drop dead adorable here in a really down to earth natural way. And she talks about Ed because the interviewer asked leading questions about Ed. Let's be honest here. Half the reason she's on there is so they can ask questions about Ed. But I think she's talented with the little acting experience she has compared with her castmates. And this shoot really she's her innate ability to model for the camera


chair! Says: leightons video 'somebody to love' they tell her what to do on the video, so ur 'respect' for her now was not her decission to make. Another person who judges a person by one video or one picture, who cares, you cant be perfect all the time! wow, so when leighton does something trashy its 'she cant be perfect all the time`yet if its jess, taylor or blake theyre whores? if you dont want people to judge leighton badly, STOP JUDGING THE REST BADLY!


for the love of god, can the leighton fans please LEAVE, nobody wants you and your hate.


Wow there Cacherr1. What is your problem? You are always insulting people on this site. Something that as I've seen has made you disliked around here. If you have too much hatred in your body or pent up tension don't bring it here.
And everyone has different ways of thinking, it doesn't mean they're idiots or "cunt suckers". So what if some think Ed and Leighton should be together or that Pattinson is hot or that Taylor's fashion sense is great. IMO I don't think any of the above but I do think that Jessica is not a good actress. She is not a bad one but not a good one. Does your picture have some kind of link to your inner emotions?
Calm down and let everyone think whatever the hell they want. It doesn't affect your life. Geez!


@cacherr1 You are very offensive. I get that a lot of you guys get pissed at a lot of different things by some people on this show BUT PLEASE CONTROL YOUR ANGER and carefully construct your statements next time THANK YOU! DON'T KILL ME!


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.
