Leighton Meester covers the April issue of Marie Claire magazine and in it the Gossip Girl star talks about her family life. Leighton was actually born while her mother was serving a prison sentence on drug related charges. She also talks about why she might not ever get married. Here’s a bit of what Leighton had to say;
On her family life growing up: “My family has a crazy history. Probably the craziest I’ve heard of.” She continues: “I look back now and I see it in a nice light. It wasn’t uncomplicated. But I played outside. I went to the beach. There were happy, fun times.”
On having “adult” concerns as a kid: “I couldn’t relate to kid stuff. ‘Jimmy doesn’t like me!’ Who cares? I was worried we didn’t have gas money or food. Those were my concerns.”
On relationships: “I never had a boyfriend until I was 18. It’s nice, I guess – when you like them. But it isn’t the most important thing. I’m not sure I ever want to get married. The only time a relationship is good is when you really love them. I don’t want to hang out with some guy I just like.”
