Leighton Meester for Cosmopolitan June 2009

Wearing a fuschia pink strapless Christian Dior Spring 2009 mini, Leighton Meester graces the cover of Cosmopolitan US June 2009.

In the magazine Leighton talks about her role in the hit TV show Gossip Girl and her real-life sweetie Sebastian Stan.

For once she is not overly made-up like in her New York Times Magazine, and InStyle US editorials. She looks really cute, and fresh on this cover.

On Playing Blair Waldorf: “The evil side of Blair is somewhere in me. Acting her out is like therapy. I get to do things nobody would ever say or do in real life.”

Do You Nice Guys Really Finish Last? “I’m not into bad boys. I think the term is stupid. A guy who cheats on you or is not nice to you? What is that? Nowadays, I’m much more mature in relationships. I’ve let go of the bullshit. I think more about the deal makers than the deal breakers. I want a guy I can look up to.”

On Real-Life BF Sebastian Stan, who also plays Carter Baizen on Gossip Girl: “I’ve never fallen in love right off the bat. I get scared to say, ”˜I love you’ too soon because it means so much. It means you’re not seeing an end to things.”

On Blair’s Romance with Chuck Bass (Played by Ed Westwick): “They’re so perfect because they get each other. Chuck knows about her deep, dark side and he finds it hot. But the best part of their relationship is that it’s realistic. People don’t always date for a while and then slowly fall in love. They start by hooking up one night. It takes time to get to know someone, and then you realize that you’re in love later on.”


Freida Pinto For Cosmopolitan India March 2009

Oscar fever is over, but the Freida Pinto fever is still on. After her Vogue India cover, comes her Cosmopolitan March 2009 cover.

On the cover she wears a mini blue Blumarine Spring 2009 dress, which she wears as a one-shouldered dress, instead of strapless, as it appeared on the runway.

The Indian beauty reveals in her interview, that she went through who went through rounds of auditions for six months, before she landed her role in Slumdog Millionaire.

On her red carpet moments: “I’m just trying to enjoy it as much as I can, because it happens only once in a lifetime. It’s a blessing, and I need to learn to relish and savour each moment, so that’s what I’m doing. And, most importantly, breathe!!”

On acting: “In India, it’s hard to find a project because most of it is Bollywood, which is very exaggerated. Most of what they make is over-the-top escapist, and life isn’t always so escapist. I realized what I wanted to do was connect with people, not seem unattainable or untouchable.”

Freida also appears on the cover of Maxim India March 2009. Click here to see her editorial.
