Leighton Meester is pretty in a yellow Reed Krakoff on the cover of Marie Claire‘s April 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (March 20).
The 25-year-old actress opened up to the magazine about her past family life struggles and relationships. It’s nice to see how well she has overcome a difficult childhood, very inspiring!
On her family life growing up: “My family has a crazy history. Probably the craziest I’ve heard of….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.”
