Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester on Love, Marriage, and Her Dream Wedding
Gossip Girl's queen bee, Leighton Meester (Blair), is just like any other hopeless romantic –– she wants to find the love of her life (check!), get married, and live happily ever after.
"When I was a kid I thought marriage was sex, but if I ever am in a situation where I want to be married, I don't think I'll have a big wedding," she tells Lucky. "Hopefully it would be about something way more secure than that."
Leighton is currently dating artist Aaron Himelstein, but her love affair with simply being in love started way before they hooked up in 2011. "I love love," she says. "It's the most intriguing universally understood emotion, and it comes in so many forms: family love, love of friends. I fall in love with everybody all the time."
Leighton seems pretty down-to-earth considering her superstar status, and she explains that celebrity isn't what's most important to her. "You can't count on success in this business," she says. "And anyway, being famous or rich or making a certain kind of movie — none of that means 'success' to me. Success to me is being happy and fulfilled, truly fulfilled, and being proud of myself and doing different things all the time. So thus far, yes, I've been successful."
Obviously, we think Leighton's biggest success was her foray into the world of see-through lace jumpsuits, but whatever makes her happy.
