On Gossip Girl, Taylor Momsen (Jenny Humphrey) spends her days sidling up to the feline in-crowd. Off-camera, though, the youngest model ever signed to elite agency IMG couldn’t care less about playing it cool.
"I absolutely love high fashion,” gushes Taylor Momsen, the youngest member of the uber-attractive Gossip Girl cast at just 15.
“It’s been such a big part of my life, models and fashion, so it’s really exciting to enter that world. It’s a whole different ballgame.”
The self-possessed ingénue, who starred in Gus Van Sant’s 2007 indie Paranoid Park, explains that Jenny Humphrey, her Becky Sharp-inspired CW television character, will be entering a new world herself.
“She’s stopped striving to be someone else and is accepting who she is,” says Momsen of Little J's future in Season 2. “She’s learning to use her talent, and realizing that can be just as powerful as money.”
