Leighton Meester: Allure Cover Girl, Ex-Party Girl

at . Comments

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester appears on the cover of Allure magazine this month. In the magazine, the 24-year-old talks about love, relationships and ... partying.

Of her wilder youth, renting a North Hollywood place with friends, she recalls:

"We had craaaazy parties, we had DJ’s, bands, an ice luge, a fire twirler. One of my roommates burned off her bangs on the stove trying to light a cigarette."

Leighton Meester: Allure

The lovely Leighton opens up about her past, present and future.

The crazy times continued when she moved to New York for Gossip Girl.

"We would go out all the time," she says. "I've never gotten too crazy, but I've definitely had some experiences. Now, I don't want to do anything unhealthy for me."

"Drinking is one thing, but overdrinking is another. And drugs are something that I do not tolerate at all. You would be surprised how many people do it."

"If you go out and you're living the nightlife scene, that's what people do."

Another thing the actress, who split with actor / Gossip Girl recurring guest star Sebastian Stan earlier this year, isn't a big fan of: the traditional playing the field.

"I don't see the point in dating," Meester admits. "I hate it. It’s wonderful to be in love. It's wonderful to cuddle and have sex and experience life with somebody."

"But it’s OK if you don’t find him and you’re 24. You can find it someday."

Somehow we don't imagine Leighton will have a hard time finding takers when and if she's interested in love, relationships and settling down. Just our hunch.

[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.
