Is Leighton Meester Fluent in French?
Leighton Meester may not be fully fluent, but the 26-year-old actress can speak some pretty decent French. Her mad language skills came in handy in summer 2010 when she filmed the rom-com Monte Carlo in Paris and Monte Carlo and then shot the first few episodes of Gossip Girl Season 4 with Blake Lively in Paris.
As Blair, Leighton busts out a few words en Français when she meets and charms Prince Louis of Monaco (Hugo Becker) at the Musée D’Orsay in “Double Identity.” It’s impressive and all, but this is Blair Waldorf we’re talking about: The girl probably also knows Spanish, Japanese, and Russian. She’s like an international spy in the body of a UES princess.
