Jennifer is the granddaughter of the founders of Italian fashion house Missoni, and is fast becoming one of Hollywoodâ€™s most promising acting talents.
One of the starâ€™s recent roles was a cameo on hit US teen drama Gossip Girl, and Jennifer was particularly taken with her co-star Leighton Meester who plays Blair Waldorf in the show.
â€śI really loved working with Leighton Meester,â€ť gushed Jennifer in an interview with the British edition of OK! magazine.
â€śI was a really big fan of the show and in particular I loved her on it. We had so much fun together. As a person, she is so humble and funny and very sweet.â€ť
Jennifer considers herself a good judge of character. She feels she can assess someoneâ€™s personality upon meeting them, and likes people who wear their heart on their sleeve.
â€śI can see peopleâ€™s hearts and their auras as well. You can see right away when thereâ€™s somebody thatâ€™s connected to his or her heart. They are not affected by all the bulls**t we encounter every day,â€ť she added.
Leighton Meester has sued her mother, Constance Meester, for misusing a monthly allowance that Leighton paid to her for the care of her brother Lex, reports TMZ.
Leighton, 25, has been sending Constance $7,500 every month because Lex has severe medical issues and Constance doesn’t work.
In her lawsuit, the Gossip Girl star alleges that Constance misused the allowance for her cosmetic procedures and other personal expenses. Constance also tried to extort money from Leighton, telling her daughter that there was an oral contract between them under which Leighton was required to pay her $10,000 every month for life.
Leighton denies there is any oral contract, but Constance has threatened to sue for $3 million.
In her legal filing, Leighton has asked the court to declare there is no oral contract.
Constance has a criminal record; at the time of Leighton’s birth she was in federal prison for her association with a drug ring that smuggled marijuana from Jamaica to the United States.
Leighton spent the first three months of her life in a halfway house to which Constance was transferred to facilitate nursing. Later, Constance returned to prison to serve her residual sentence and Leighton’s grandmother cared for her.
In the past, Leighton has maintained that her parents are good people who brought her up well.
Well this is just about the nicest story ever.Â Gossip Girlâ€™sÂ Leighton MeesterÂ (Blair) has recently been working with actressÂ Selena GomezÂ on the set of their new filmÂ Monte Carlo, and Leighton couldnâ€™t wait to praise the young actress. â€śSheâ€™s the most amazing role model. Sheâ€™ll have full-on conversations with her fans â€“ but theyâ€™re only six years old. She is just so wonderful with them.â€ť
The 25-year-old actress continued to reveal that she enjoyed working with both Gomez and Katie Cassidy (alsoÂ fromÂ Gossip Girl)Â on the romcom.
And it turns out the feeling is mutual. Earlier this year, 18-year-old Selena revealed that she was jealous of Leightonâ€™s success, saying, â€śLeighton does such a good job, and I canâ€™t wait for people to see her in a different light.â€ť
We love to see this side of celebs, but what’s happened to the good old-fashioned catfights?
Here at heatworld, we love Leighton too! The modest celeb revealed, â€śI love acting. Itâ€™s not fame and other parts. I love acting and singing, so I want to continue doing that. But, no fame and fortune â€“ that sounds nice.â€ť We definitely love a woman who is passionate about her work.
Leighton has recently been pictured on the Upper East Side, working on the new series ofÂ Gossip Girl. Exciting!
