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."

Again Jess is a good actress for the material given. A bad actress is Miley Cyrus or Paris Hilton. The GG cast are filled with talented actors. For those who says she is terrible actor probably think Rob Pattinson is hot and Taylor Momsen's fashion sense is great cause you are all so delusional just like those who want Leighton and Ed together. How much of cunt suckers are you people?


im sorry i hate vanessa and jessica, 1. bad actor 2. not pretty shes ugly
they need to kill her off the show, shes so bad.
and i said that as nice as i could.


and @ gossipcommenator: 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!


Mrs. Fabregas i laughed at ur comment hahah, loved it!
and im sorry i dont like vanessa, i think shes a bad actor, and i dont care about 'its the character not the actor' well actualy it is the actor and well she sucks. shes horrible,and not to be mean but i want her to die this season. (bye bye vanessa!!!) i just think it will be better for the show, but we always do need a mess up soo..
and for their relationship i don't mind i just think ed could find better, thats all. but leighton and ed would be a cute couple but i loveee leighton and her man now, their so adorable!! ED FIND SOMEONE ELSE!!!!! and like Mrs. Fabregas said, she is only on this magazine because of ed!


it's ironic that even on the cover she had to talk about ed. let's face it, that's the only interesting thing the world knows to say about jessica szohr, outside her family and close friends.
she looks OK, but not really beautiful and is a very weak actress who plays a hated character.
how could someone with skills like that not be "down to earth"?
forgive me, but there is so little so say about her, it's comedic.


i know this is a gossip girl website and i am a member and lover of this site and gossip girl not just some random person spreading spam! but its an emergency!
my friend is making a really AWESOME video for Nina Dobrevs B-Day!
she's on twitter @TeamKatGraham and i think A LOT of people including myself have sent Bday pics to go in the video but she needs MORE Videos of fans saying happy bday and stuff!!! She needs everything sent into her email by Jan 6th cause Nina's B-day is on Jan 9th and she needs time to edit! Nina Dobrev does reply to @TeamKatGraham on twitter so she will FOR SURE see this video!!!
so please, PLEASE make a mini vid of you and ur friends maybe, saying happy B-day to Nina! and then go on to twitter look up @TeamKatGraham and DM her saying (I "@sabrinaisonline") sent you! and ask her for her E-mail so you can send her the video, and nina will SEE it and love it! THANKS!


She looks fantastic. What has everyone got against her? I really like watching her on GG.


I agree with Jordan Why so mean to Leighton


i really dont get why everyone hates her (and vanessa) so much! v is my fav gg character and i think jessica is amazing too!!


Leigh got mixed into this because most of the people who hate Jess, hate her because they want Ed and Leighton together. That's so funny though. (if we're already comparing) I like Blair's character better and I probably like Leighton better (though her trashy videos etc are kinda pulling it down) and I do think that Ed and Leigh have an amaizing chemistry and would look good together, but I still find it in my heart not to bash Jessica. And people say she's a bad actress? Well she's supposed to play this rather boring and dislikable character. Don't you all think that? So doesn't it make her convincing? Anyways. I'm gonna bring in Taylor now. I'm really sorry if someone's offended again.
I'm pretty sure most of the people here don't like her, because she's proven to be nosy and arrogant, she dresses like a young Countrey Love etc.
But do you have anything against Jenny?
Probably no. (yeah okay you don't want her to be with Nate, but other than that?) You don't like Vanessa
You don't like Jessica But why do you form an oppinon of one based on the TV but not the other?


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.
